San Diego Comic Con 2014: The Collectables to Collect

Luke Miksa's: The Negative Space Bar

While San Diego Comic Con has now become a mixed-medium Mecca of marketing (I will patent that phrase), at the core it is still a place to salivate over all things super-nerdy; in this case I am going to talk about some choice upcoming action-figures and collectables from some of the world’s best toy companies.

Thanks to Toy News International and MWC Toys for this year’s great coverage and photos.

I did them purely out of boredom and self-entertainment, but they seem to have taken off in popularity since I began to post them on Facebook.
So here is Gallery Number One: The Early Years. You may notice the sometimes shockingly amateur production values– as do I – but I present these in all their unrefined glory (check out the creepy human hand that I forgot to ‘Weaselize’ in the Dirty Dancing poster). Enjoy!
