We take a look at the newest offering from Wizard World and open our very own Comic Con Box!
1. Plush Han in Corbonite
When I told the people at Hallmark that I loved their new Han Solo Trapped in Carbonite plush, they just stared back at me and coolly responded, "I know."
2. Horrifyingly Warm
If you've ever felt like attaching a brain-sucking alien creature to your scalp, but also didn't like the idea of letting your ears get cold, then the people at Channel 8 from Outer Space have got you covered.
3. Bat-Thomas the Dark Tank Engine
Yes, there really was an exclusive Thomas the Tank Engine / Batman toy for sale at the Mattel booth. It's for the three-year-olds who are into dark, brooding anti-heroes, but still like to also yell "Choo-choo" from time to time.
They made a Chewbacca version of Furby? BRB. Throwing out all my old Furbies to make space for this one.
(Just kidding. I threw out all my old Furbies a long, long time ago.)
5. Astronaut Tyson Figure
In space, nobody can see your regrettable face tattoo decisions.
6. Awkward Rhino
This rhino's head is too big for its body.
For other awkward creatures, try looking around you in any direction while at Comic-Con.
7. Guess They're a Little Too Great
By best friend is a big Simpsons fan and he asked me to pick him up a Fat Tony figure if I saw one. So, I got him this $8,000 guy at the Bait Booth. I just hope he pays me back before rent's due.
8. Plush Hadouken
I asked the guys at Multiverse Studio if I could take a photo of their Hadouken plush and they responded, "SUREYOUCAN!"
9. Tina Fey & Amy Poehler Weekend Update Play Set
Entertainment Earth pulled out all the stops with their action figure set commemorating one of the best eras of SNL.
I can't wait until next year, when they come out with the Colin Quinn Update play set, which will start with promise, but ultimately end up being a huge disappointment.
10. ToeJam & Earl: Puzzle on Funkotron
I worked on this puzzle for a while, but I could never seem to level up past "poindexter." That's when I realized it's because I was at San Diego Comic-Con, where the word "poindexter" is actually a compliment.
11. Star Wars Skateboards
The guy told me I might want to consider buying two boards- one to ride, and one to keep in mint condition. Then, we both laughed at the notion that I might know how to ride a skateboard. Good times.
12. Tiny Bang Theory
Lego brought out their Big Bang Theory playset, which is perfect for anyone who loves playing with Legos, or anyone who enjoys listening to the same joke re-told for 183 consecutive episodes.
13. Take Your Hating Elsewhere
This brings back bad memories. The kids at school always teased me for having a lunch box.
Well, I guess now that I think about it, it wasn't so much because I carried a lunch box, but because I'm a 30-year-old man who still hangs out in an elementary school cafeteria.
14. Oh No. The NES Games are Coming Alive Again.
I'm not really sure what's going on with these vinyl NES cartridges of confusing knock-off games that have hands and feet, but I bought a couple anyway. Hey, even if they're not playable, they can't be any worse than the Friday the 13th game, right?
15. What's Comic-Con Without Ponies?
I'd mock this set of My Little Pony superhero "Power Ponies," but honestly at this point I think the MLP fans have pretty much taken over all of cyberspace and I don't need to get on the Internet's bad side today.
16. Couldn't Agree More
This bumper sticker makes a great gift for anyone who happens to be friends with Guff writer Eileen Mary O'Connell.
17. Joke's On You This Christmas
I may get some hate for this, but honestly, I never found the Joker's humor to be very funny. And I think that by using the word "joke" in his name, he comes off as slightly desperate. Sorry, Joker.
18. Ambiguously Gay Figures
Hey Ace & Gary. Didn't you hear? It's 2015 now. You don't have to be ambiguous anymore.
19. Red Shirt Uglydoll
Finally, an exclusive Comic-Con toy that you won't mind when your kid or dog destroys it. The disembowelment just adds to the experience.
