If you couldn’t make it to San Diego Comic-Con, or weren’t able to grab some of your favorite exclusives from the show floor, you may not have to turn to Ebay just yet. Many companies have turned to offering their leftover Comic-Con exclusives online after the show is over. Whether you believe that takes away from the “exclusive” aspect of it or not, it does give some fans a second (or third, or fourth) chance to grab what they missed out on.
Mattel has just announced that it will be offering a limited amount of SDCC exclusives to fans in a special “After Party” online sale, starting on Monday, August 4, for Early Access members. Whatever doesn’t sell out will then be open to all access sales on Tuesday, August 5. Once we have exact times, we’ll update.
[UPDATE July 29] Mattel has announced the exact on sale times:
Early Access: Monday, 8/4 from 8 a.m. PT to Tuesday, 8/5 at 8 a.m. PT (subscribers only)
All Access: Tuesday, 8/5 at 9 a.m. PT (everyone)
Ends: Monday, 8/11 11:59 p.m. PT
So just what will be included in the sale? Here’s a look at those exclusives:
[UPDATE August 1] Mattel has added two exclusives to their After-Party sale: the Batman Arkham Knight Batmobile ($85) and the DCU Classics Doomsday ($35).
