Comic-Con is coming!
||For us toy collectors, the granddaddy of events has to be San Diego Comic-Con. The 2009 show starts July 23rd (preview night July 22nd) and runs through July 26th, and this year I'm bringing more cool stuff than ever before!
First off, we'll have not one, but TWO fan panels at the show:
||Mattel & DC Comics, a Powerful Partnership
Friday, JULY 24
11:00 AM - 12:00 NOON
Friday, JULY 24
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Then, visit me at Booth #2845, and you'll find tons of new toys either just coming on the market or soon to come. We'll have Ghostbusters, DC Universe, DC Universe Classics, Infinite Heroes, Justice League Unlimited, Masters of the Universe Classics, Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Disney/Pixar CARS, Toy Story, Hot Wheels, Scene It? The DVD Game, and the insane new Mindflex game — plus a few surprises!
PRODUCTS AVAILABLE AT COMIC-CON
Products will be sold starting preview night. Customer service and safety is our number one priority, so we'll have a separate booth run by our Toy Club to handle sales. Lines will only be allowed to get as long as the designated roped-off area, but "fast-pass" tickets will be handed out to reserve your spot later that day. Limits on all exclusives will be six per person, per visit to the Mattel booth.
If you choose to wait in line a second time, you'll be eligible to buy another 6 figures (there will also be a limit of six figures for online purchases after the show). It should all go very smoothly for the best buying experience yet!
We're going to have plenty of gotta-get products available for sale, including (click each for all the scoop):
