If you’ve ever been to Comic-Con before, you’ve undoubtedly spent too much energy A) rushing to and/or waiting in line for the HasbroToyShop booth; B) ogling others walking around the show with all of those cool toys from said booth; or C) all of the above.
Well, if you are lucky enough to be attending this year’s con, and if you’re reading this blog it’s most likely you are, then prepare your drool cups because Hasbro is starting to trickle out news on their 2011 SDCC exclusives.
USA Today’s Popcandy blog posted details on Hasbro’s Special Edition My Little Pony for all the little girls in your household, unless you are a little girl at heart, which means this is for you. This cutie will set you back $14.99.
And for the little boys in attendance, of which I am firmly in that camp, Marvel unveiled the Avengers Special Edition Mini Muggs Collector’s Pack. The set includes Hulk, Thor, Iron Man and Captain America Mini Muggs and a “giant-sized” Giant Man in Mighty Muggs form, all in awesome collectible packaging (check out Giant Man’s head sticking out of the Mini Muggs box!). The set will run $34.99.
As usual, availability of these exclusives are limited and could sell out early, but most likely Hasbro will have enough on hand to sell to everyone who wants one. They’ll also make limited quantities available after the con via the HasbroToyShop.com online store.
Marvel also said the rest of the exclusives will be announced closer to the July 20 start of SDCC, so I would imagine that also pertains to Hasbro’s other licenses as well, such as Transformers, G.I. Joe, Star Wars and Littlest Pet Shop. Stay tuned for more info as it is announced!
