Once again, Toys-R-Us is partnering with Entertainment Earth to offer several San Diego Comic-Con exclusives at this year’s event. Toys-R-Us will have Hasbro exclusives from the Star Wars, G.I. Joe, Transformers, and My Little Pony lines along with Power Rangers, Batman, and Mortal Kombat.
Fans attending SDCC can pick up the exclusives at the Entertainment Earth booth (#2343) during the event. For those not attending, Toys-R-Us has set up a Comic Convention Exclusives 2015 page on their website where the items will be available to order starting on July 9th.
This year’s Star Wars set is Jabba’s Rancor Pit. The set includes Jabba the Hutt, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, C-3PO, Gamorrean Guard and the Rancor. Jabba’s Rancor Pit is rumored to have an MSRP of $130 and according to the press release, will be available in stores later in the year.
It was announced during this year’s G.I. Joe Convention that there would be two SDCC exclusives, one by Toys-R-Us and one from Hasbro Toys Shop, with the TRU set being the Desert Duel Pack. It includes Philip “Chuckles” Provost, Night Fox, Cobra Air Trooper, Elite Horseman and two vehicles; Cobra Basilisk and F.O.E. Striker. The Basilisk is a repaint of the 2010 Wolf Hound (Snow Cat) and the F.O.E. Striker is an update to the A.W.E. Striker. The set is estimated to be $60 and will only be available at the convention and on-line. A regular release, without Night Fox and the Cobra Air Trooper, will be available in stores later this year.
Sideshow is currently holding their on-line Comc-Con event, leading up to San Diego Comic-Con which starts on July 9th. During their event they’re posting teasers for upcoming items, giveaways, and pre-orders for new figures. Over the weekend they announced a new Star Wars astromech droid, R2-Q5.
They’ll have R2-Q5 at San Diego Comic-Con and orders and more information will be on the way.
Funko has posted the eighth wave of San Diego Comic-Con exclusives and it includes a Hikari Darth Vader in Matte Black. The figure is limited to 1,200 pieces and will be available at the Funko booth.
StarWars.com had the reveal earlier of Gentle Giant’s latest San Diego Comic-Con exclusive, Prototype Boba Fett mini bust.
The bust features Boba Fett as he was first envisioned, with a mostly white and black deco. He also features a different type blaster than was eventually used in the films. The bust will be available at SDCC but Premier Guild members can pre-order now for a bust to be shipped after the convention. The Prototype Boba Fett mini bust is $120.
Update: It looks like the edition size was updated after we posted. The Prototype Boba Fett bust is limited to 750 pieces.
Funko is giving sneak peeks at their San Diego Comic-Con exclusives and they’ve announced three more Star Wars collectibles. They’ll have two more Pop! Vinyl bobble-heads; gold chrome C-3PO and Princess Leia as Boushh (unmasked).

Diamond Select Toys has announced an exclusive Ant-Man Marvel Select figure is now available from Marvelshop.com and Disneystore.com. The figure is priced at $24.95 and comes with interchangeable heads and hands and a 1.5″ tall micro Ant-Man. The order page is up now and the figure will ship in July.
Ant-Man Scores Big With an Exclusive Marvel Select Action Figure at Marvelshop.com and the Disney Store!
Even though Ant-Man himself is relatively low to the ground, anticipation for his movie is higher than ever! With the uncanny ability to shrink in size and increase in strength, Ant-Man is poised to infiltrate the Marvel cinematic universe on July 17th, in his own feature film. And now Diamond Select Toys, marvelshop.com and the Disney Store are poised to release an exclusive Marvel Select action figure based on his film appearance!
Only available through marvelshop.com and the Disney Store, this new Marvel Select collector’s action figure of Unmasked Ant-Man measures 7 inches tall and comes with an exclusive interchangeable unmasked head of Scott Lang! It also includes a masked head, six interchangeable hands, and a tiny, 1.75-inch version of Ant-Man in his shrunken form! The figure was sculpted by Gentle Giant Studios, with 16 points of articulation, and comes in display-ready packaging with movie artwork down one side, for handy shelf reference.
Pre-orders open on June 22 at marvelshop.com, disneystore.com, and disneystore.eu. The figure will ship to customers later in July, at which point it will also be made available at Disney Store locations across North America and Europe.
Scott Lang first appeared in Marvel Comics as the thief who stole Dr. Hank Pym’s Ant-Man costume, planning to use it to commit crimes before becoming a hero and Avenger in his own right. In the new Ant-Man movie, Lang (played by Paul Rudd) and Pym (Michael Douglas) team up to prevent the Ant-Man technology from falling into the wrong hands.
Unmasked Ant-Man joins previous marvelshop.com and Disney Store exclusive figures Hulkbuster Iron Man, Avenging Hawkeye, Mighty Thor, Unleashed Hulk, Superior Spider-Man, Unmasked Captain America, and Bleeding Edge Iron Man. All are currently available on marvelshop.com, disneystore.com and disneystore.eu!
Kotobukiya posted official photos of their upcoming ARTFX+ AT-AT Driver on their Facebook page yesterday. The 1:10 scale figure will come with interchangeable arms so you can display him with a blaster, pulling on his gloves or at parade rest.
The AT-AT Driver will include a base and like most other figures, will have magnets in the feet to help him stand. Kotobukiya has an estimated ship date of December listed on the post. The AT-AT Driver is already available for pre-order from BigBadToyStore.com and you can now also place an order directly with Koto. Both sites have an MSRP of $64.99 with BBTS offering him for $59.99 as of this writing.
Hallmark will be releasing four shared exclusives for San Diego and New York Comic Cons, including three Keepsake ornaments and a set of Star Wars itty bittys.
U-3PO and R5-D4 Keepsake ornaments will come in a 2-pack alongside a Boba Fett and Han Solo in Carbonite set of itty bittys. We expect the ornaments to be in the $40 range while the itty bittys will probably sell for around $20. This is based on previous sales and the prices at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim.
Batman fans can pick up a 60′s television style Batmobile done in done in a chrome deco.
Finally, Alien fans will have a Xenomoph and egg Keepsake ornament to add to their collection.
Pricing hasn’t been posted yet for the Batman and Alien ornaments. These are shared exclusives so fans will first have a chance to pick them up during San Diego Comic-Con which runs from July 9 – 12, 2015. New York Comic Con starts October 8th and runs through the 11th.
Following up on the Tatooine set that Lego released during Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, they’ll have a Dagobah set at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. The 177 piece set builds a mini version of Yoda’s hut and Luke’s X-Wing Starfighter. There are two mini builds to represent Luke and Yoda as well.
The set is priced at $39.99 and will be sold at the Lego booth (#2829) during SDCC. Complex.com posted the first photo and info about the set on Thursday and includes some additional about how to purchase the set during the convention.
