Under the Tents: Gecco Corp, Funko, Wayward Cocktails, Loot Crate, Diana Gabaldon

In Exclusives, General News by Andy Wagner1 Comment

We hate being the bearers of bad news. We get just as disappointed as anyone else when an artist or exhibitor says they won’t be at San Diego Comic-Con. However, with great power comes great responsibility, and it’s our responsibility to report everything SDCC-related, good and bad. Don’t worry; there’s good news in here, too.

Here’s a look at what you might have missed:

  • Gecco Corp is bringing Siegmeyer from Dark Souls to San Diego Comic-Con as an exclusive this year, available at Gecco Booth #4931. The 1/6 scale statue was entirely sculpted by hand, and the chainmail of the prototype seen under the armor was woven and produced in the same way as real armor, using small metal rings. It retails for $299.99, and you can pre-order for convention pick-up now.

  • Stanley “Artgerm” Lau is certainly in full SDCC prep mode. He showed us via Twitter his new Pepper art print he’s making for SDCC.

  • Apparently, eight is enough for artist Mike Mitchell. After appearing at SDCC for eight years in a row, he tweeted that he is taking 2017 off.

  • Women in Comics NYC Collective International are going to be very busy during San Diego Comic-Con. Not only will they have a booth on the Exhibit Room floor, H-09, they will also have an offsite event at the San Diego Public Library on Wednesday, July 18, and an on-site panel at SDCC on Friday, July 20. Reply to their Facebook Event to let them know they’ll see you around.

  • He’s Batman! Kevin Conroy, who voiced the Caped Crusader for Batman: The Animated Series as well as most of the animated movies, informed us via Twitter that he will be at SDCC this year. Since this year is also the 25th anniversary of Batman: The Animated Series, it’s no surprise we’ll see him at SDCC.
