- Igor Goldkind also took to Facebook to announce his own panel, called IS SHE AVAILABLE? Poetry, Comics, Art and Jazz? Really? Expected guests for the panel include Goldkind, Amy Sterling Casil, Rian Hughes, Liam Sharp, and “a line up of BIG artists talking about why they bother illustrating poetry for the screen when they could be making much bigger bucks drawing franchised characters”.
- High-end Japanese toy maker Gecco Corp will be bringing a Comic-Con exclusive RAIDEN White Armor statue to the convention. The 1/6 scale figure will retail for $195, and features RAIDEN in white armor from the extra ops mission “JAMAIS VU” of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. The statue comes with a rocket launcher on his back and an assault rifle in his right hand, which can be displayed with or without the suppressor. The eye glows red with a mounted LED in the head. You’ll be able to pick up the figure at Gecco’s booth at San Diego Comic-Con, or you can pre-order online beginning May 11, to have it shipped after the convention.
- For the third year, the Web Series creators panel will be returning to Comic-Con, according to panelist Jeff Burns on Facebook. This year’s panel will be titled Web Series Creators: The Next Generation.
- TheOneRing.net’s popular Comic-Con party last year, Laketown Luau, might be back again this year – but they need your help. If you’re interested in attending the Tolkein-themed celebration, head on over to TORN’s site to answer some questions.
- My Cool Car Stuff, who offered some nifty Star Wars exclusives last year to attendees, will be back at Comic-Con this year. You can find them at Booth #2913-V.
