After first debuting last summer (with little fanfare), Walmart is bringing back its Collector Con event for another round this week. The online event will officially run from July 22-25, corresponding with this year’s virtual SDCC@Home.
According to Walmart, this event will kick off a new series of Collector Con events. The retailer will officially start hosting three of these events each year, with more details to come soon.
As for this week, fans can expect new, exclusive product reveals starting at 7 a.m. PT/10 a.m. ET on each day of this four-day event. Walmart has partnered with a variety of popular collectibles brands for this event, including Funko, Star Wars, Marvel, QMx, NECA, Diamond Select Toys, and more.
During one of its Yo Joe June livestreams last month, the Hasbro Pulse team mentioned that new G.I. Joe Retro Collection figures would arrive during Walmart Collector Con, too. The official Walmart collectibles landing page already has a countdown to the event, along with a few teasers for what is to come. It looks like fans should anticipate some Hasbro Star Wars items, a new sports Funko Pop! and some Thor collectibles.
