The PoP! Stars narrow it down to the cream of the crop in categories ranging from (but not limited to) Comics, Movies, Toys and Geek Culture in general. This is thePoP! Top 6-Pack.
1966 Batman & Robin 2-Pack
My first memory of Batman as a kid was from the campy TV series of the 1960’s. One of my favorite reoccurring gags was when the Dynamic Duo climbed up the side of the building. I was excited to see that they were releasing a toy line based on the show and this is a great addition to the collection. This exclusive 2-pack will be available at the A.H. Collectables booth #3058. Now if could they just release the series on DVD already!
The Funko Pop vinyl figures have become highly collectable and sought after by those looking to add clutter to their homes. More and more conventions are adding exclusive Pop figures and NYCC is in no way the exception. If you have to have all the exclusive Pop figures be prepared to empty your wallet at NYCC. Exclusive POP figures can be found at the following booths; Conquest Comics #3004, Crazy Cat Collectables #1555, Fugitive Toys #410, Toytastic.Com #2544, ConventionExclusive.Com #1274, and Matt’s Calvalcade of Comics Cards & Collectibles. Now can we get a Lee Rodriguez Funko Pop figure?
Takara Asian Exclusive MP-08 Grimlock
Speaking of the Head Honcho (Lee Rodriguez) we are all aware of his affinity for Transformers. You see him fawning over his Metroplex HERE! This Grimlock was exclusive to the Asian market but Lunar Toy Stor (BOOTH #) is bringing a few to NYCC. My prediction is that this beauty will be gone by the end of the first day of the con. So if you have $150 to spare run over to the Lunar Toy Store booth #1581 and grab one before they’re gone.
Super Best Friends Forever: Poison Ivy PVC Figure
The only thing that DC is doing correctly these days is their animation. From animated movies and TV shows DC has done something that they’ve yet to do with the New 52 and that’s make people happy. One of the cooler things they have done is run animated shorts during their DC Nation block of shows that air on the Cartoon Network. One of the more popular shorts is Super Best Friends Forever that stars Batgirl, Supergirl, and Wonder Girl. As an Exclusive at NYCC Graphitti Designs/DC Comics Boutique booth #755 will have a Poison Ivy PVC figure that is approximately 6.625” tall and is priced at $24.95. Hey DC Nation…lets work on getting a Super Best Friends Forever series going!
Wrath of the Rancor
Everyone knows that the Rancor has a special place in the heart of everyone here at PoP! The love and affection for the cute and cuddly creature only grew as PoP!’s own Jason Knize proposed to Mary Staggs (now Mary Knize) in front of a large Rancor at Star Wars celebration. Courtesy of Hallmark you buy a Wrath of the Rancor Keepsake Ornament at NYCC for $35. They will only be selling 200 pieces per day and the total production run will be set at 1,800. Pick up your Wrath of the Rancor ornament at the Hallmark Cards booth #1554.
Super Alloy Batman 1/6 Scale Batman by Jim Lee
HOLY CRAP! This 12 inch, 10 pound beauty will be at the Yes Anime INC booth #536. It is based on a Jim Lee design it comes will all types of goodies like, interchangeable head, changeable hands to hold batarangs or a grappling gun, PVC utility belt, and fantastic articulation. This beauty doesn’t come cheap. While I could find a definitive price all indications are that it will be over the $200 mark.
There are a lot of exclusives at this year’s NYCC. Ranging from the moderately price to the “I have to sell a kidney to get this” level. I don’t expect to get everything but something on this list is going home with me. If you get a hold of any of these or other items at NYCC let us know about it.
