There’s just one week left till San Diego Comic-Con returns to blast us in the face with awesome pop culture spectacle, cosplay, and fantastic, expensive goodies. Here’s the very best toys and collectibles at this year’s show that we can’t wait to line up forever for (or, more likely, pay even more for on eBay afterwards).

A bunch of cool stuff here so I'll just feature four:


Revolution Comic Crossover Preview Mega-Set

(Hasbro, $100) Toymakers often rely heavily on nostalgia to move pricey SDCC-exclusives, but this year Hasbro raises the bar with a box set featuring a hall of fame of awesome ‘80s toys. Based on the new IDW Comics series Revolution, the Revolution Comic Crossover Preview Mega-Set includes Transformers’ Jetfire, G.I. Joe’s Roadblock, M.A.S.K.’s Matt Tracker, Visionaries’ Leoric, Rom the Spaceknight’s Rom and a Dire Wraith, and a team of Micronauts rounding up the 16-character roster.



Spider-Man & Venom and Supergirl & Martian Manhunter BrickHeadz

(Lego, $40 per set) Lego introduced its adorably-deformed BrickHeadz at least year’s SDCC, and this year it returns with two new exclusives featuring Spider-Man battling Venom, and Supergirl teaming up with the Martian Manhunter. Each set will cost you $40, but the Marvel set will only be available on July 20 and 22, while the DC Comics set can only be snagged on July 21 and 23—assuming you win a random lottery for the permission to spend your cash.



Dragon Stars Super Saiyan Goku

(Bandai America, $35) Bandai is debuting its line of super-articulated Dragon Ball figures—the first line of its kind in years—in a big way, with a super fancy edition of Goku, powered up to his Super Saiyan form. The 6.5-inch figure comes with extra hands to pose him readying his various attacks.



Star Wars Black Series Grand Admiral Thrawn

(Hasbro, $50) Fans have been waiting for ages to get a new Grand Admiral Thrawn figure, especially after his triumphant return to Star Wars canon in Rebels. This deluxe version, exclusive ahead of a smaller release of the figure on its own later this year, includes a bunch of little items seen in a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it scene set in Thrawn’s office in the third season of Rebels. Yes, that really is the holy grail from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade!

Good hunting if you want them!

If you, like the rest of us, had thought Funko had run out of things to Pop-ify, think again. There are sixty six exclusives in San Diego this year, covering just about anything you could imagine.

Ehh, I can see if you're a huge fan of someone who's not got a toy in a long time that Revolution box is exciting, but the Jetfire's inclusion is pretty random and the toy hasn't been repainted at all from it's Japanese release (which is very similar to the US mass release version anyway).

The other Transformers exclusives were pretty naff this year too.

When was the last time there was a ROM toy? Back when he was owned by Marvel maybe?

That Goku looks so cool.
Also, there's a Power Rangers Zeo Gold Ranger Communicator for $100.

It is now $200+ on eBay because of course it is.

958 dollars.

That's how much it would cost JUST for the things I can't live without.

Odinson and Jane Thor are getting individual releases with slightly different paint jobs.

The new Ragnarok line Odinson will be a retool not a repaint.

He is going to be young Thor from God Butcher. They're painting a shirt on him and remaking his head.



If you want modern Odinson, you have to get the SDCC set currently.
