Under the Dinner Table: ‘Elf’, Shag, ‘The Last Ronin’, FiGPiN, Marvel Fan Photo Shoot

This meal is almost ready to be devoured, everyone is just adding the finishing touches. Today, we’ve got delicious offerings for you on some unexpected surprises at the con, including a figure from Shag, your chance to spread Christmas joy by singing loud for all to hear (or at least to find Buddy the Elf), exclusives from Kevin Eastman and FiGPiN, and more.

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

  • Next week, get ready to pass through the seven levels of the candy cane forest and through the sea of swirly-twirly gum drops — to find Buddy the Elf. Cosplayer Jimmy Sherfy has teamed up with record label Varèse Sarabande for a Comic-Con Special Edition giveaway. On Friday, November 26 between 1PM – 5PM PT, look for Sherfy dressed as Buddy the Elf from Elf at the convention center, where you’ll need to follow these instructions in order to win a limited edition signed copy of the Elf Deluxe Edition Soundtrack by composer John Debney:
