Countdown to SDCC 2010 Thread!!!

For all the lines not covered in our themed forums. Think Thundercats, Ghostbusters, Voltron, Wrestling, Doctor Who, Power Rangers, Video Game Licenses, TV & Film Licenses... do I need to go on or did you have it figured out before I even started?

I wonder what the market will be for custom-made casts of those face-huggers.

Seems it would be easy enough to pull off . . .

Toy companies ARE getting shrewd at that, aren't they . . . the whole "fuel hype for something in demand by releasing a slightly different version early" thing.

I eagerly await the NECA Bioshock Eleanor/Saved Little Sister 2-pack and I'm torn between the Starro pack/Plastic Man/Orko. I'm not gonna be able to attend because I obviously used my third wish to give Genie his freedom, but I really hope to be able to snag the Eleanor pack and one of the 3 Mattel Exclusives online somewhere... like MattyCollector or somewhere else semi-quasi-affordably. *openly weeps*

I heard they chuck up some after the show on their Amazon storefront so hopefully I can snag one then... even if I have to miss some sleep to make sure I snag one.

Is that NECA you mean on the Amazon store?

Yeah, I believe that's where I snagged an April last year.

Which, speaking of . . . I do need a new April . . .
Are those yellow/green ones ever coming out, or did they already?

i believe the alternate april's got canned.

but you know, NECA didn't exacly have a rush last year to snag their con exclusives... the lambent exclusive from last year is still available.

Did they ever release a no-name grunt version of that Carmine figure from their old exclusive? I'm a sucker for faceless troop building and would kill or maim for a COG soldier.
