It was a busy weekend for San Diego Comic-Con news. The use of the Online Exclusives Portal for autographs was confirmed, we know about a cool new Ghostbusters virtual reality experience coming to Petco, and our site even got a refreshed look. But that’s not all that happened. No, we got updates on when we’ll start getting Funko’s exclusives reveals, news that a pro wrestler will be signing autographs, and the possibility of a whole new system from our friends at toddland.

Here’s a look at the news you might have missed:

  • Hiedi MacDonald, Editor-in-Chief for The Beat, posted on Twitter that they are looking for journalists for SDCC. This would be a paid writing assignment and people interested can contact her via Twitter or the email address in the link.

  • During a Funko Q&A on Twitter they answered that Comic-Con exclusives will be revealed after E3 has ended. The gaming convention runs June 12-14, so you won’t be getting any reveals this week.

  • But mid Q&A Funko still tweeted an exclusive tease. It looks like Killer Moth and Silkie from Teen Titans Go! could be coming to San Diego this summer.

  • Toddland mentioned on Twitter a possible schedule for releasing SDCC exclusives with Family Guy and Bob’s Burgers being on different days. Stay tuned to his Twitter and our coverage once things have been finalized. There are also plans for a new pre-order pickup system to speed up the check out process. We like the sound of #alltheipads!
