We’ve covered all the items that will only be available at the Peanuts booth at the San Diego Comic-Con, but that’s not all the exclusive Peanuts items you will only find at the con. Dark Horse Comics, publisher extraordinaire (by which I mean that they paid me on time for the thing that I wrote for them) is offering a “Snoopy Qee Mystery Figure Gold Edition”. Now, a Qee figure is a designer figure by the Hong Kong company Toy2R, and Dark Horse has launched a line of Snoopy mystery figures, which means that you get it in a closed box and you don’t know what the design is until after you’ve bought it. But I suppose that if you know that you’re buying a gold one, the mystery is gone! Anyway, eight bucks gets you the shiny dog.
The fourth and final of the exclusives that will be available at the Peanuts booth (#1637) at the San Diego Comic-Con (and I’d list the dates, but why bother? If you don’t already have a ticket, you ain’t getting in!) is also another fourth – the fourth Schleich figure available as a Comic-Con exclusive. This year, it’s Woodstock, so the gold color is not so far from his normal yellow. Ten bucks gets you this shiny little bird.
That’s the end of the exclusives at the Peanuts booth… but it’s not the end of the Peanuts exclusives! Check in tomorrow!
The San Diego Comic Con exclusive Peanuts items that I generally hear the most clamoring for are the t-shirts. This year’s batch is all Charlie Brown and Snoopy. That kinda fits into the Peanuts comic book tradition; for the 1960s Peanuts comic book series, all of the covers had Snoopy, Charlie Brown, and no one else.
$25 a pop at booth #1637, while supplies last.
Day 2 of our 4 day voyage through the items that will be exclusively available at the Peanuts booth at the San Diego Comic-Con this year (which is only a couple weeks away at this point!)
Ten bucks, at booth #1637.
Hey, I can work four days worth of posts out of the San Diego Comic-Con exclusives at the Peanuts booth, because they’ve got four exclusives… and number 1 is the freebie!
Each day at the booth, they’ll be giving out a different Peanuts pin, each presenting a different Peanuts character as a presidential candidate! If you want a bossy woman to be president, why vote for Hillary when you can vote for Lucy? Or if you want a boastful loudmouth for president, why vote for Trump when you can vote for, umm, Lucy. Really, Lucy is the obvious choice in all this. She’ll be the first to tell you so.
Quantities are limited each day, of course.
By the way, in case anyone’s wondering, I expect to be at the convention, but only on the Friday of the show. I’m not scheduled to be on any panels, so if anyone wants to find me, you oughta let me know in advance.
