Peanuts Comic-Con exclusives 2019


Well, the legendary San Diego Comic-Con is just around the corner… timewise, that is. Physically, it’s down in San Diego, which is like a month’s walk from where I am and even more from you. Anyway, as always, it’s far too late to get a ticket, which are hard to get even when it’s not too late. So mostly, I’mhere to taunt people with the things they can’t get… in this case, the convention-exclusives available at the Peanuts booth. For the second year in a row, the Peanuts items have the theme of space travel. And some of it is sweet.

I rarely buy t-shirts, certainly not for full clothing prices, but this time, I may. I mean…

Yeah, I could wear that. Twenty-five bucks. Same price as for this’n:

The young ‘uns can get this $20 t-shirt in youth or toddler sizes:

Fifteen buck cap:

These ten bucks a pop pins include one that’s based around the same drawing as the Silver Snoopy pins that are sent into space and given to those who may key contributions to NASA mission safety… for about .1% of what a real one currently offered on eBay would cost you.

And hey, another of those pins is designed after the Hallmark Peanuts pennants of the 1960s, as is this five buck patch:

Water bottle? $25

Yo! A yo-yo!

And who needs a lanyard? You do? Well, if you go to Comic-Con, you get a free lanyard anyway to carry your badge, but it probably won’t be as cool as this Peanuts one.

Ten dollar Snoopy keychains in that classic motel key shape… harder to find these days since they all changed to those keycards, which are very efficient and utterly unromantic.

And if you’re tired of letting your fingers do the walking (it’s a reference to old ads for phonebooks, youngsters) here are some skateboards for your fingers!

There tends to be long lines for the chance to buy these exclusives. It always amazes me at people who spend hundreds on the ticket and maybe thousands on travel and hotel and spend most of their time standing in lines to spend money… but if that’s what makes them happy, more power to them!

Peanuts stuff at Comic-Con

So, I’m back and mostly recovered from Comic-Con. I had somehow missed the message that there would be another pop-up shop, this one focused on Peanuts and the space program. What were they selling? Reproductions of a 1960s Peanuts space-themed banner. And skateboard decks. Of course. Meanwhile, one of the …

What is and is not exclusive at that Peanuts offsite

As I mentioned a couple posts back, the Super7 store in San Diego will be doing a Peanuts pop-up within the shop starting on the Friday of San Diego con. The earliest release made it sound like this was just a launch for their products, but (alas for those who …

blatantly cool Peanuts toys/not toys

One of the nifty things about how the San Diego Comic-Con has grown over its 50 years of existence (I’ve only attended… oh, probably 30. Egad.) is that the convention has outgrown the convention center and spills out for many blocks around. Various companies and groups, not wanting to pay …
