One of the big things every year at comic con are the exclusives. Some people buy exclusives to complete a collection. Some buy them because they are cool. Some buy them to turn a profit. I’ve done all three at some point or another at a con. Here are some of the really cool things to look out for, and where to find them.
Hallmark – Booth 1956
The Dark Knight Returns
This original sculpt is inspired by the 1986 comic-book masterpiece The Dark Knight Returns. This gritty adventure helped to establish the more realistic and complex portrayal of the Dark Knight in modern media. Sales limited to 700 Keepsake Ornaments.
In the classic 1978 TV series “Battlestar Galactica,”™ Cylon Centurions relentlessly pursue the “ragtag” survivors of the Twelve Colonies of humanity across the reaches of space with a single goal–destroy all humanoids. This gold-painted variant of last year’s popular ornament is Hallmark’s first Comic-Con exclusive to feature sound. Sales limited to 600 Keepsake Ornaments.
