NYCC 2022 is this week, and it’ll include an interesting little side-event from Sideshow Toys. Sideshow’s fully-loaded New York Con is running now.
This week is NYCC, and what’s really the convention’s first big return show after the pandemic years. Sure 2021 might’ve had an NYCC, but this one actually feels like an NYCC. But even with the convention back in all its glory, Sideshow Toys has an event all its own on tap. That’d be the company’s online show, Sideshow’s New York Con.
If you’re a fan of the company, it’s going to be an event to check out. Sideshow says it’ll be a packed one, filled up with “exclusive content, gameshow trivia, reward points, contests, and brand new special offers across all of Sideshow’s social media channels”.
Along with all of that, Sideshow is preparing a virtual booth as well, and it’s sounding a lot like one that you’d find on the show floor. The company says it’ll be stocked with stuff from “Sideshow, Hot Toys, Tweeterhead, Premium Collectibles Studio, Prime 1 Studio, and more!” Oh, and they’re doing it twice.
Apparently, Sideshow will debut a second, all-new booth, on October 8th to kickoff the weekend. No word on what might be included there, but there might be more than a few surprises.
Here’s your official rundown:
- Sideshow’s hosts will be live at 10 AM PT (October 6-9) for a tour of the booth, and an up-close look at all the latest statues and figures.
- Join the team for a 2 PM PT daily desk show with news, features, and more!
- Hang out at 5 PM PT for a daily wrap-up show discussing fan-favorites from each day of the con.
It’s worth mentioning too, that you an still pre-register for Sideshow New York, and you definitely should. Pre-registering will net you $10 in credit after all.
As for where you’ll be able to view all of the above, that’d be right here.
