IMG_0840 400x533

WonderCon is the first major Comics Convention of the year, but kinda the warm-up to it's Big Brother, Comic-Con in San Diego in July. There are some toys, but mostly Star Wars and Comic Book action figures. Regardless, WonderCon is fun and both Super7 and Rotofugi had booths with exclusive toys.

First stop is Super 7. Two exclusive toys and a big Kaiju Sale was worth the visit to WonderCon all by itself. Masters of their domain Glenn and Lee at the Super 7 booth.

The first exclusive toy is the before mentioned Baby Ava Hedoran from Gargamel to commemorate Brian Flynn and Dora Drimalas new daughter Ava.

The Secret Release is this RAD green mini RealxHead Mutant Head. This is the first time in history that a Real x Head toy has been simultaneously released at WonderCon in San Francisco and Wonder Festival in Japan! The RxH minis are killing it! I can hardly wait to see the Mutant Evil and Bigaro!!!!

After picking up the exclusives and a very cool rainbow metallic Bullmark Mecha Godzilla CHEAP (Thanks Glenn!) from Super 7, second stop is our friends from the Windy City, Whitney and Kirby from Rotofugi. They too have a couple of exclusives...

How about this insane Radioactive Marnon from Dream Rocket?? This is my first Marmon and I gotta say it's pretty cool. I normally wouldn't buy a figure like this cause it takes up way too much shelf space, but as I looked over all the details including the faces on the shell and the vomit coming out of one to form the tail, the GID vinyl inside, the toxic colorway, I was sold!!

Whitney and Kirby imitating the new Marnon split tongue...

The second exclusive is this Cronic! Dorome. The painted version is amazing with these metallic paints over a light green / putty base. The unpainted version looks like this....just...un-painted. Not as cool IMO.

How about master customizer, super nice guy and all around bad-ass Jesse Hernandez with his own animated TV show called The Nutshack!!

Don't miss a minute of the off the wall adventures of Jack, Phil and the rest of the Nutshack crew as they offend all cultures, sexes and animals.
