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.

Last time I posted some packaged pics of Wave 1 of Toynami’s 4-inch Naruto Shippuden figures. I’ve since opened them and decided to give Kakashi his own pic review as he is the most awesome of the bunch!

I’ve been on a Hasbro streak lately with G.I. Joes and Marvel Universe, so I thought I’d shake it up a bit with a figure that I’ve had since Comic-Con. Today we’re taking a look at Toynami’s 2010 SDCC exclusive 4-inch Sage Mode Naruto! This was the first figure I bought at the Con, and as soon as I got back to my hotel room I immediately opened him up! I’m a big fan of the anime, and I’ve been waiting for a decently articulated figure of Naruto ever since I got hooked on the show.

Here’s my top three “Best in Show” at SDCC this year!
3) Green Lantern Classics
I had not bought monthly comic books in a long time, but the Blackest Night storyline got me coming back every month when the series was still going on. Green Lantern has been on a roll lately, and with the movie coming out next year, it’s high time that Mattel finally gives this corner of the DC Universe it’s due. Seriously, the Green Lantern Corps alone could fill up a couple of waves, now that we have a rainbow spectrum of corps, there are lots more characters to choose from!
We got to see a double knee-jointed Kyle Rayner, Arkillo, Low(one of my favorite sculpts!), Maash, and Manhunters at the Con and boy do they look great. I can’t wait until they get to Atrocitus, Saint Walker and Arisia! Also this line is just full of potential army builders. You can expect collectors to pick up multiple Manhunters, and customizers to pick up multiple base bodies to create their own corps members. It’ll be an exciting time for Green Lantern toy fans next year! And woohoo for that preview Ch’p pic!
