I love me some good Comic Con swag. And pound for pound, you will find no greater collection or wallet-draining collectible goodness than at Comic-Con International: San Diego.
Every company that makes toys, collectibles or any other type of licensed tchotkes puts out some sort of limited edition goodie at the San Diego Comic Con. If you’re in that line of work, it’s what you do.
HASBRO always has several cool SDCC exclusives around its toy brands, and this year is no different. They just revealed this awesome set from Marvel, The Collector’s Vault Legends Series 3.75 inch action figure set. It features the longtime Marvel cosmic villain The Collector (played by Benicio Del Toro in Guardians of the Galaxy) along with several of the awesome treasures inside his creepy intergalactic museum.
The annual Marvel exclusive from Hasbro is always a big draw for collectors and I bet this one will be no different. Guardians was such a big hit even non-comics fans will dig it — and comics nerds will crave the Lockjaw and Howard the Duck figures — and the fact that we could see a sneak peek at Guardians 2 will only drive the price up on this.
It’s going to sell for $69.99 at the Hasbro booth at the Con. They usually put a few, if any are left, up for sale at Hasbrotoyshop.com.
I’ll keep posting more of the Comic Con exclusives here … and since I’ll be at the convention, except daily reports on news and other fun and cool stuff I see there.
