Well, Hasbro has just upped the ante in the San Diego Comic Convention exclusive war. In an update from USA Today, they have revealed a good number of their SDCC 2013 exclusives. This news drop includes exclusives from GI Joe, Transformers, My Little Pony, Marvel Legends, and Jem and the Holograms. All of these figures will eventually be available on Hasbrotoyshop, their online store, but who knows when as they never announce the date or time that they will be selling them.
Marvel Legends fans will be happy to see Hasbro has put together a new box set for SDCC this year. Last year’s box set had three figures, but this year they are upping the figure count to five. The Marvel Legends Thunderbolts set of Luke Cage, Crossbones, Judith Chambers, Moonstone, and Ghost will be their largest Marvel Legends box set in years. The set will run you $89.99, but that is a small price to pay for three new characters and two that needed to be redone.
Jem and the Holograms fans should be glad to know there is a new exclusive this year as well! Hasbro and Integrity Toys were so happy with last year’s sales that Jem will be coming back as “Glitter N’ Gold.” Glitter N’ Gold Jem will be extremely limited and will cost $140.
Every year Hasbro likes to do a GI Joe and Transformers mashup and this year is no exception. Their third annual offering will be a GI Joe V.A.M.P. vehicle in Autobot Hound’s colors and a Skystriker in Autobot Jetfire’s deco. Packed in with these amazing vehicles will be Snake Eyes with Autobot symbols, Baroness with Ravage on a leash, Autobot Blaster (boombox form) with tapes, and a robot samurai warrior. This epic set will be $99.99 and if prior years are an indicator it will go FAST!
Finally we have one for all the bronies out there: My Little Pony Friendship is Magic DJ PON-3. This pony will cost you a cool $49.99, but with ponies is price really a concern? Didn’t think so.
As always keep checking back because we are about six weeks out from preview night and there is plenty more to come! Don’t forget to check out our SDCC 2013 esclusive checklist so you can keep track of what you are going to buy this year.
