We here at the SDCC Unofficial Blog are working round the clock to bring you the hottest San Diego Comic-Con news. OK, this time of year it definitely seems that way, but we’re working hard to bring you great news from Ash Evans, Camilla d’Errico, and lots of adorable plushies and pins.
Here’s a look at what you might have missed:
- Some of the most exciting Comic-Con news yesterday came from Del Rey’s Star Wars books imprint, which will have a SDCC exclusive variant of Thrawn: Alliances.
- Stubbins has created two San Diego Comic-Con exclusives this year, which will only be available for purchase at the Yes Anime Booth #4729. To commemorate the 30th anniversary of Street Fighter, you can pick up a plush Sakura in her fierce but fashionable school uniform, and the alternative of classic character Blanka in his popular Blanka-Chan costume. They’ll retail for $19.99 each.
- But there’s more good news from Stubbins, as they also revealed that Yoshinoro Ono — the executive producer of Street Fighter — will be at the Yes Anime Booth #4729 to sign autographs on Thursday, July 19 from 11AM-12PM and then again on Friday, July 20 from 11AM-12PM.
- Artist Eric Koda will have this print with him at Table #DD-09 in Artists Alley at SDCC this year.
- Another artist whose art will be auctioned at Gabe Eltaeb’s Comic Kickoff V is Chad Cavanaugh. Look for these prints at the annual charity auction.
- Artist Alex Kotkin took to Instagram to post his Rick and Morty #39 variant cover he’ll have with him at SDCC this year.
- Although we got a ton of panel news yesterday, actor Rob Benedict shared some more: He and his buddy Richard Speight, Jr. will be providing moderating duties for the Supernatural Sunday Hall H panel.
- Did you forget to pack that backpack we suggested to you? Hyperactive Monkey, along with Jansport, has you covered with their SDCC exclusive backpack with waistpack. Head over to Booth #5640 to be the coolest kid at school this year.
- By the power of Grayskull! Camilla d’Errico’s Bee-Ra pays homage to the classic 80’s cartoons we grew up racing home from school every day to watch. Now, we’re racing to Booth #4723 for this SDCC beauty.
- All hail the Kaiju King! Look for this most regal of Kaijus at BeeFy & Co.’s Booth #5051 in the Exhibit Hall at SDCC this year.
- Ash Evans tweeted her latest SDCC exclusive Hocus Pocus pin variant with orange smoke. She’ll have these as well as prints available at Booth #3750. And if that’s not enough, she’ll have some of these Magic Moon glow-in-the-dark pins, too.
