SDCC 2013: Toynami Booth Video

Toynami Hello Kitty Street Fighter SDCC Exclusives 2012 - 2013

I like to think that we get a little more Comic-Con savvy every time we go. Last year my wife missed out and had to pick up the Toynami Hello Kitty Street Fighter Chun Li on eBay. This year, on Preview Night, instead of previewing, she lined up at the Toynami booth and picked up this year’s Badtz Maru as Ryu and Hello Kitty as Akuma. I was lined up at Hasbro, which was right next to the Toynami booth, and I probably walked around that booth at least 15 times over the course of the show.

When I watched Toynami’s Comic-Con video, I realized I’m still as Comic-Con dumb as ever – I’m always so caught up in taking pictures / getting to panels / trying to get SDCC exclusives that I miss so much of the show. Sandman was more on top of things than me, and took some pics of the Toynami booth.

SDCC 2013: Toynami DC Skelanimals, Hello Kitty Street Fighter, and Voltron

Here’s a couple of pics from the Toynami booth – no Narutos or Futurama in the booth. They did have a Masterpiece Voltron with light up eyes on display. No word on the release date for that one.

I have to say, the DC Skelanimals and the Hello Kitty / Street Fighter mashups do look good!

My wife tells me that some folks are expecting the DC Comics licensed Uglies to show up at San Diego Comic-Con, but as far as official news is concerned, it’s a previously unseen mashup with Sanrio’s Hello Kitty which are featured as exclusives for SDCC. Wage, Ice Bat, Ox, and Trunko (who gets the nod over mainstay Babo) show up as costumes for Hello Kitty in 12-inch plush, keychains, t-shirts, pins, and iPhone cases.

The email announcement also showed vinyl figures, but these were not called out on the Comic-Con page.

Check Out the Street Fighter x Sanrio and Futurama SDCC Exclusives from Toynami

I was just mulling over the Skelanimal Harley Quinn SDCC exclusive from Toynami when I came across the rest of the Toynami exclusives for this year. Since my wife jumped through hoops to get the Hello Kitty Chun Li, I know we’ll be in line for these mashup versions of Akuma and Ryu – Badtz Maru is the bad-ass of the Hello Kitty-verse, so I must have Badtz Ryu.

Futurama fans will want the Destructor vs Gender Bender box set from the Ultimate Robot Fighting League episode. I’ve got a hankering to watch some episodes on Netflix now.

SDCC 2012: Toynami Street Fighter Hello Kitty Mashup Plush Exclusive

Chun Li - Square Enix, Toynami, SOTA

Yes, I took a picture of Hello Kitty for AFP. But this isn’t just any Hello Kitty – it’s Chun Li from Street Fighter in her Alpha costume, and she’s flanked by the most awesome Chun Li action figures ever made – by Square Enix and SOTA. Surely that buys me back some of my gangsta street cred, right? 🙂
