If you can’t make it that night, come back for food, drinks and photo ops all weekend!

Continuing the View Askew theme, each morning at 9:30, from Thursday July 9 through Sunday July 12, DST will give away a limited number of Mallrats promotional Minimates at booth #2607 – their first Mallrats product! Simply ask a DST team member, and they’ll let you know where in the booth they are being given out, but stop by early – they go fast!

Additionally, free full-size posters will be available at the DST booth throughout the weekend, featuring artwork of Jay and Silent Bob, Back to the Future and Aliens by the actual Minimates designers!

Mondo is taking on the toy and collectible industry in some very cool and interesting ways. Their approach to collectibles has been really fun so far, and they only look to be getting better. USA Today shares news on some of Mondo’s items for San Diego Comic-Con 2015. There’s an assortment of prints and vinyl records. There’s also the previously revealed First Hellboy Statues.

However, it’s the inclusion of Mirage Comic Style Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Figures that will leave fans ecstatic.

The figure will include a red mask, a cartoon style blue mask, his katanas and other accessories. At SDCC, Mondo will also be displaying the other Turtles as well. Price is yet to be revealed.

The USA Today story made it seem as if Leo would be on sale. He will NOT be on sale, and the figure is NOT an exclusive to the show. Mondo has posted an update. All four Turtles will be On Display Only. Leo will have over 25 points of articulation and will also include interchangeable hands.

MOTU ReAction Figures SDCC 2015

Super 7 has revealed even more San Diego Comic-Con 2015 Exclusives! They will be offering a set of Prototype Style Masters of the Universe ReAction Figures. You read that correctly. He-Man and the gang will be getting the retro Kenner style treatment. Fans have been asking about a 3.75″ scale line for ages. This may not be what they envisioned, but it’s at least fitting. Actually, it seems pretty brilliant. The set includes solid color versions of He-Man, Skeletor, Mer-Man and Beast Man. Remember, the Super 7 SDCC Exclusives are not going to be easy to obtain. Here’s the details:

He-Man’s greatest nemesis Skeletor has taken over Super7 San Diego and has converted it into his very own lair. What he plans to do with it, we are uncertain. Possibly use the space to plan out his evil doings for the week or perhaps release some amazing He-Man and Masters of the Universe SDCC Exclusives! It is no easy task to gain access to Skeletor’s Lair. One must venture out to the Super7 Booth #4945 or the Mattel Booth #3029 to pick up a Skeletoken. You will then take this coin to 701 8th Avenue (Corner of 8th & G) and show it to us to gain entry into the Pop-Up Shop (you indeed get to keep it!).  Stay tuned for more information on what will be available at Skeletor’s Lair.

Skeletor’s Lair Pop-Up Shop Hours:
Wednesday – 9PM – 12AM
Tursday – 11AM – 9PM
Friday – 11AM – 9PM
Saturday – 11AM – 9PM
Sunday – 11AM – 9PM

The figures are priced at $60. The set is limited to one per person. No word on whether these will lead to non-exclusive standard color versions. With SDCC 2015 next week, you never know. Read on to check out the image.

Robotech Heavy Armor GBP-1 Stealth Fighter 1:100 Scale Figure
In honor of Robotech’s 30th Anniversary, Toynami is excited to present the Heavy Armor GBP-1 Stealth Fighter 1:100 Scale figure. It is fully articulated just like the classic 1:100 transformables, and can be converted into Fighter, Battloid or Gerwalk modes. The Armored Veritech GBP-1S system allows a single VF-1 fighter to wield the artillery firepower of an entire squadron. The armor is able to withstand several withering barrages from enemy fire, but prevents the Veritech from transforming into fighter mode, and must be jettisoned if the pilot needs maneuverability. *Heavy Armor accessories can only be used in Battloid mode.
Retail Price: $99
Limited to 300 pieces
Size: 6” Tall
Available at: Toynami Booth #3229
