Buckle up fans, conventions are fast approaching, and all at once!
Comic-Con@Home is next week, but it’s not alone in kicking off the season — in fact, there’s some overlap. Right before Comic-Con@Home, fans can enjoy Sideshow Con from July 19-25. Fans will be seeing double next weekend, it seems.
This week-long, virtual event will feature daily booth tours from Sideshow’s studio, showcasing a range of art prints, collectibles, figures, and statues. Fans will also get an exclusive look at new reveals, upcoming products, and popular items from the collectibles manufacturer’s partners, including Tweeterhead, Iron Studios, Threezero, Infinity Studio, Prime 1 Studio, and more.
Some convention exclusives in store for fans this year include The Armorer from The Mandalorian and the Neon Tech Iron Man 4.0 from Hot Toys, with more surprise reveals in store throughout the week. The former features the character’s helmet and armor, as well as a faux-fur coat and a selection of tools for accessorizing. The latter features a shiny black diecast interpretation of Iron Man’s armor, including neon orange highlights which glow under a specialized LED light. Accessories include an interchangeable LED light-up nano repulsor cannon, a hand cannon, nano boosters, an energy blade, and a holo shield. Last year’s Sideshow Con collectibles from Hot Toys featured a Marvel-ous mashup of Stan Lee, Thor, Iron Man, and Spider-Man figures.
Fans who pre-register for Sideshow Con 2021 have tons of perks in store, including $5 in Sideshow rewards, a $10 promotional code for in-stock products, first looks and reveals of new items, priority access to convention-exclusive products (including those The Armorer and Neon Tech Iron Man 4.0 figures), promo codes, reward points, and more. Last week, Sideshow revealed the contents of the convention swag bag on their YouTube channel. Check it out below!
Limited-edition Sideshow Con souvenir swag bags were first available to pre-registrants, but are now open to the public in regular and deluxe packs, priced at $55 and $150, respectively. The bags include enamel pins, apparel, and stickers, with the deluxe edition featuring a Sideshow team jacket.
