EAGLEMOSS HERO COLLECTOR RETURNS TO NEW YORK COMIC CON WITH NEW SHIPS, FIGURES, COLLECTIONS AND EXCLUSIVES
Exciting Debuts from Ghostbusters, Star Trek™, Doctor Who, WWE® and More!
(October 1, 2019 – New York, NY) – After an almost sold-out performance in 2018, Eaglemoss Hero Collector, designers, manufacturers and publishers of high-quality collectibles from across the world of pop culture, are back at New York Comic Con and bigger than ever!
Fans will be able to start or add to their collections – as well as purchase outstanding gifts for the fans in their lives – with special prices throughout the convention at Booth #737, beginning Thursday, October 3 through Sunday, October 6 at the Jacob K. Javits Center. They’ll also be among the first to learn about and get a look at some of the company’s most spectacular new releases.
Thirty-five years after saving the world from Gozer the Gozerian and an oversized Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, the original team of Ghostbusters and their celebrated Ectomobile are back in the city where it all began. Parked at Booth #737 throughout NYCC, the world famous ECTO-1 will invite fans to be among the first to sign up for Hero Collector’s Build the Ghostbusters ECTO-1 subscription program, which launches late 2019 in the UK and early 2020 in the US.
Once assembled, this iconic die-cast vehicle replica measures 31 inches long and 10 inches wide, and comes complete with working headlights, sirens, steering wheels, doors and a display case. The first 250 US sign-ups at the booth will receive the first kit and magazine in this build-up series at a special price, as well as a commemorative ECTO-1 pin.
Hero Collector’s set of officially authorized Ghostbusters Figurines will also be on display and available for purchase. Featuring film accurate recreations of Ray, Peter, Egon and Winston as they appear in the 1984 Ivan Reitman movie, the set will be offered for half price to any fan signing up on site for the ECTO-1 Build-Up.
Fans and collectors of all things Star Trek™ will want to make Booth #737 their own personal starbase as a host of officially authorized Star Trek™ exclusives will be on display, including never-before-seen starships and awesome show specials from across the many Star Trek collections for which Hero Collector enjoys worldwide renown under the license of CBS Consumer Products.
Making its debut at NYCC will be the incredible cloaked variant edition of the U.S.S. Defiant NCC-74205. A convention exclusive, this transparent variant is strictly limited and NYCC is the first opportunity for fans to add it to their collections.
Hero Collector will also debut their first-ever variant comic cover in conjunction with IDW Publishing. Available exclusively at Booth #737, the limited edition variant of IDW’s Star Trek: Year Five #6 comic book features a brand-new photo cover depicting the iconic XL Edition model of the fabled U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 shot by renowned starship photographer Nils Walter Khan, who will be signing at the booth on Sunday October 6 from 11am to 12noon alongside Star Trek: Year Five writers, Jody Houser, Jackson Lanzing, and Collin Kelly.
In addition, the massive, heavily-armed Reman warbird known as the Scimitar also makes its debut at NYCC and joins the collection as the latest Special Edition. Other new additions to the oversized XL Editions will also be on display and for sale, including the U.S.S. Excelsior NCC-2000 – not to mention the fan-favorite Star Trek: Discovery: The Official Starships Collection and the U.S.S. Discovery NCC-1031 herself.
Outside of the convention, Hero Collector’s Ben Robinson will appear at Barnes & Noble Union Square alongside Star Trek designer Todd Cherniawsky for a special Q&A discussion, followed by a signing. This is a ticketed event, and each attendee will receive a special goodie bag courtesy of Eaglemoss Hero Collector. Tickets are now available via Eventbrite here, and fans are encouraged to book early.
Having teamed with the WWE® to create the WWE Championship Collection, Hero Collector will showcase both current WWE Superstars and past Legends at Booth #737. A stunning collection of authoritative magazines and expertly sculpted 1:16 scale polyresin statues will be on sale at Booth #737, including WWE Superstars The Rock, Triple H, Charlotte Flair, Undertaker and Seth Rollins, as well as WWE Hall of Famers Bret Hart and “Macho Man” Randy Savage.
Fans will also have the opportunity to meet WWE Superstar Kane, on Friday, October 4th starting at 4:00pm at Booth #737. He’ll be signing exclusive covers from his upcoming Hero Collector magazine release with a preview of his collectible statue on display – the prototype of which will be unveiled at NYCC for the first time anywhere!
Later that same day, from 6:30pm – 7:30pm in Room #1C03, members of the Hero Collector team will reveal new additions to the collection as part of the not-to-be-missed “New Toys, Action Figures and More” panel hosted by Entertainment Earth’s Adam Pawlus.
The latest releases and fan favorites from Hero Collector’s other popular lines of collectibles will also be showcased and offered for sale at Booth #737, including selections from Battlestar Galactica, DC, Doctor Who, The Wizarding World, and Alien and Predator.
For more details on upcoming releases from across all Hero Collector lines, fans are encouraged to attend the Official Hero Collector Panel on Thursday October 3 from 11am-12noon in Room 1B03, which will include Star Trek designer Todd Cherniawsky alongside artists Karen Hallion and Robert Hack, and be followed by a group signing at HeroCollector Booth #737.
For those unable to make it to New York Comic Con, Eaglemoss Hero Collector has created an online “virtual booth” that lets anyone purchase the non-exclusive products offered for sale on the exhibit floor, while supplies last. In addition, fans can also subscribe to any collection to enjoy exclusive offers, free gifts and first dibs on specials.
