We already told you about Nickelodeon‘s big plans for this year’s Comic-Con, including their immersive, interactive booth that will pay homage to their collection of hits from the ’90s and ’00s, as well as a one night only return of Double Dare. Now we can bring you the exclusive announcement about all about the swag you’ll be able to nab if you take the physical challenge and head out to San Diego.
The network, along with The Splat (its block of programming focused on their great library of old shows), had previously announced a special retail area as part of their exhibit. Now that we know what they’ll have for sale, we can say there is good news and bad news. The good news is that it’s all great, but that is also the bad news, because if you’re a Nick-loving child of the ’90s (raises hand), you’re probably going to end up spending all of your money there. Especially if you ride or die with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
So what will you be able to grab?
The Nick Box ($50): an array of exclusive items from The Ren & Stimpy Show (a ceramic glazed Stimpy-molded mug), Rugrats (a 4.5-inch Reptar Vinyl), Rocko’s Modern Life (plush of Spunky), as well as items from Hey Arnold! and CatDog.
You’ll even be able to sign up to continue receiving the boxes after Comic-Con, through their subscription service TheNickBox.com.
Exclusive Bebop with Warthog Trike from Playmates ($30): Inspired by Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, the trike will come with “two rocket grenade projectiles and custom vacuum-metallized chrome finishes.”
Kidrobot Exclusive Triceraton ($50) and Shredder ($50): Both medium-sized figures are based on the ’80s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon and are brand new. The alien-race Triceratons will come in the Comic Con exclusive green colorway, and Shredder will come in the exclusive gold.
The Loyal Subjects Exclusive Ralph vs. Slash Two Pack ($30): If you want to complete your Toy Color version collection of the Turtle Heroes, this SDCC exclusive is the only way to do it. These nine-point articulated figures two-pack also come with “multiple and interchangeable accessories,” in case you decide to ever open them. (You totally will, right?)
Dark Horse-Exclusive Korra Statuette ($80) and World Premiere Aang Statuette ($80): The 8-inch Korra is a variant sepia version of the original Dark Horse color version from The Legend of Korra. Only 300 of the hand-painted statues will be available (all numbered), and each comes with a certificate of authenticity.
Aang, from Nickelodeon’s animated series Avatar, will be getting his world premiere figure at SDCC: a 7-inch, hand-painted statuette that will also be numbered, and with a certificate of authenticity. However, there will only be 150 of these made.
Power Rangers Underoos ($25): You can be the Green or Pink Ranger with these tee and briefs underoos sets (which you can also order from underoos.com).
Like we said: that’s a lot of good news for you, even if it means some bad news for your wallet.
