Somehow, New York Comic Con (NYCC) is here! Things may be a bit different this year — as the convention adopts safety measures and offers an in-person/virtual hybrid setup due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic — but one thing certainly isn’t changing: convention exclusives!
While some companies are dropping fall exclusives at their own virtual events (including Mezco Toyz at Mezco Con, Super7 at Wish We Were There-ic-Con, and Hasbro at PulseCon), there are still companies heading to NYCC in person and/or releasing exclusives for the show.
If you have tickets for the convention, you can reserve some of this year’s show exclusives directly through the online reservation system (get all the details for that here). However, other items will be available online or on the show floor. Keep scrolling to check out our roundup of some of those exclusives below, along with information about where to get them!
FIGPIN (NO BOOTH)
Figpin will not be utilizing its booth on the show floor this year, but the collectible enamel pin manufacturer still has exclusives heading to the show. Those exclusives will be available to purchase at the NYCC Store, which is run by Reedpop. So far, the company has revealed two exclusive pins for the convention: Tyrael from Diablo (1,500 pieces) and Madara from Naruto Shippuden (2,000 pieces). Stay tuned in on the company’s Instagram for additional exclusive pin reveals — Based on a teaser image the company posted, there will be six in total.
