Okay, some folks will probably think this sounds a bit disingenuous, since I’ve been sort of talking down the convention set this year with the switch to an Anniversary style, but more importantly the apparent lack of new concepts. However, just because I’m a bit disappointed in the convention offering doesn’t mean I’m down on the Convention as a whole. There is much more to the Convention experience than simply the toys being sold there… and yes, even though I’m not wild about the 25th format change, I still think it’s a whole lot of fun to hypothosize what we might be getting for our attende exclusives. Here’s what we know so far:
Gyre-Viper of the HissTank forums has taken some pictures of the upcoming SDCC Exclusive Destro figures and posted them online at HissTank.com. The images show some nice detail, and I especially love the 3-piece suit on James McCullen…it was done exceptionally well. I can’t wait to see what a Tomax and Xamot head look on it, not to mention the potential for future Dr. Venom customs.
Great stuff from Hasbro, especially for an exclusive. I’m going to try like hell to get me some of this!
