It’s back! SDCC is back in action this July, for the first time in two years, and that means exclusives. DST is ready to go too, with plenty of the good stuff.
Just uh wear a mask
No, seriously, if you’re going to SDDD you have to wear a mask. Other than that though, the show is a go, and should be back in relative full-swing in just a few month’s time.
And as mentioned, that means there’ll be plenty of exclusive items to grab while you’re there (and presumably online too). Diamond has revealed its slate of goodies, and it’s loaded up with big names.
Cobra Kai, Avatar, Transformers, and Marvel are all there. But personally, the best items aren’t in any of those categories. My favorites are pretty far and away the VHS collection.
Diamond will have John Wick, Bruce Lee, and Cobra Kai figures ready for the Con, all of which will be encased in “VHS” clamshell-style packaging. If you’re thinking of the Rocketeer figure from last year, you’re on the right track.
