Entertainment Earth (Booth #2343)
Cereal Monster Geeki Tiki Mug 3-Pack Set
I’ve been continually impressed by the licenses Beeline Creative have obtained for its line of ceramic tiki mugs from Marvel and DC superheroes to your favorite films like Pulp Fiction.

Between this and the redesign collaboration with top DC Comics artists, there’s suddenly a nostalgia demand for these particular cartoon cereal mascots. Sadly, no Fruit Brute or Yummy Mummy included, but 3/5 isn’t so bad. Can’t make SDCC? Never fear! Currently available for pre-order on the official website.

Copied directly from the original prop sword, this 30-inch heavy duty replica has a hand forged blade made from stainless steel and features Amazonian runic script on the fuller as seen on the actual sword.

Gentle Giant Ltd (Booth #3513)
Boba Fett STAR WARS: RETURN OF THE JEDI Jumbo Figure
Sure, there’s no shortage of merchandise for that taciturn Mandalorian bounty hunter James Mangold spinoff movie, but this Gentle Giant figure is too good to pass up for the hardcore Star Wars collector. Unless you’re the Eltinville Club, no trivia contests necessary to purchase.
Celebrating the 35th Anniversary of Star Wars: The Return of the Jedi comes The Return of the Jedi edition Jumbo Boba Fett! Gentle Giant Ltd. is proud to present this fan-favorite character as our 2018 Comic Con exclusive Jumbo! In 2010 Gentle Giant Ltd. Released the first 12” Jumbo Star Wars figure, 8 years and over 60 figures later the Jumbo line is still going strong and delighting fans by up-sizing their favorite vintage figures to the massive Jumbo scale!

This new card release features the Return of the Jedi logo and a jumbo photo of Boba Fett in action on Jabba’s sand skiff on Tattooine, just like the vintage counterpart!

Lt. Saru STAR TREK: DISCOVERY Mini Bust
Admittedly, I’m not a huge Trekkie or had a chance to watch the Star Trek: Discovering streaming on CBS All Access. Know this new Star Trek iteration has received acclaim from fans, so this item will be of interest.
Hot off the critically acclaimed and fan-favorite first season comes the launch product from Gentle Giant LTD’s newest license: Star Trek: Discovery! Star Trek fans all over the globe are rejoicing the return of a regular Star Trek series and their dedication to the pulse-pounding first season has led to Star Trek: Discovery being picked up for a second season!
As chief science officer aboard the U.S.S. Shenzhou, Saru resented Michael Burnham for being given the job of first officer. Eventually, he is reassigned to the U.S.S. Discovery and appointed first officer by Captain Lorca. Evolved from prey rather than predator, Kelpiens have a pronounced ability to sense the coming of death. Saru finds himself in the unique position of being the first Kelpian to serve in Starfleet. Will his unique ability to sense death impair his ability to make the best decisions for his crew, or will it save them all?
Gentle Giant artists worked with production to use original concept models and authentic production files to accurately match and recreate the prosthetic makeup appliance worn by actor Doug Jones for this bold new mini bust. This limited edition convention exclusive mini bust of first officer Lt. Saru is hand-cast, hand-painted and hand-numbered with a limited edition Certificate of Authenticity.
Gwenpool Marvel Animated Statue
Despite having the ongoing ongoing series cancelled, the parody character Gwenpool still remains a popular Marvel character most especially in the cosplay community. Another addition to Gentle Giant’s adorkable Skottie Young inspired animated statue line.
Pulled from the real world, ordinary dropout Gwen Poole (her real name) retreated from her daily struggles and failures by obsessing over the media that she loved, particularly the Marvel Universe. Somehow, she was accidentally transplanted into the unpredictable world of COMICS! Not sure how to get herself back into her own dimension, Gwen made the most of her predicament. She pulled on the Pink and White Tights and decided to jump head first into the action as Marvel’s newest hero; the unbelievable GWENPOOL!
This convention exclusive is one of Gentle Giant Ltd’s long-running line of Marvel statues based on the illustrations of best-selling Comic artist Skottie Young. Inspired by The Unbelievable Gwenpool #1. This statue was digitally sculpted and replicated for production on state of the art 3D Systems machines. These high-resolution prints are used in the creation of prototypes needed to produce this well detailed, high-end collectible. Each limited edition animated style statue is hand-cast, painted, and numbered with a matching Certificate of Authenticity.
