2016 San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) Guide to Hasbro Exclusive Tips

We’re back for another year of pain and elation with Hasbro.

There is no booth at San Diego Comic-Con that causes more of both and 2016 looks no different with a wide range of exclusives that will bring hordes of fans to their booth. While obtaining these elusive treats is a hobby for most, there are a lot of pros out there that will be competing on the crowded convention floor.

    Is there anything a person that can’t get to the con til 9am can still get? Signatures, exclusives? Hasbro, funko and so many more require lining up at times that I can’t be there. Its great that Comic-Con does have services for the disabled to some extent. In my case it’s my daughter that is disabled and can only be left with care givers so long. I know the amount of resales people is staggering. I have seen people leaving with huge bags of merchandise while I am only driving up. I can’t afford $300 for a $15 toy. Your the unofficial blog so I have no idea how much comic-con talks to you. I am just one of the plain old fans you speak about I understand lines and all it’s just not possible for me to get into them til 9am. So basically I want to know if I’m sol on everything?

    A guy at a TRU Express I stop by at times said there is supposedly “Yo-Kai Watch” plushies in addition to Diamondnyan. Is that correct or was he misinformed and the full list is already out?

    I didn’t watch the whole video, but I have often had luck just checking back at the Hasbro booth sporadically and finding it open to the public. The hot items are usually sold out, but I’m not sure which one’s those are this year, and honestly if you aren’t gonna be there at 4AM then you werent gonna get those anyway.

    Thanks Keeleon,

    I was sure that 4am is not gonna happen. It would cost me much more in care givers and grief than buying from those that make money off of the items. I didn’t know that the booth sometimes opens to the public, I can always swing by, 🙂
