Photos: Comic-Con Toys, Art & Tchotchkes



While the Joker(s) gandered at Tiberius Stark Trek cologne (previous pic), I considered dousing myself in "Khaaann!", the Genki Wear scent being modeled here by Enterprise "booth babe" Chantel Gonzales. A limited run of only 500 bottles debuted at Comic-Con this year.


A sculptor at the Hasbro booth uses a KerrLab Ultra-Waxer to bring highly-detailed characters to life (below).


Ken Sadlock from Comic Images models a R2-D2 Backpack Buddy: "When Artoo sits on the back of Luke's X-Wing, he helps make sure all systems are go. When Artoo sits on your back, he makes sure all your junk is in order." Obviously.


Two limited edition vinyl Voltron figurines from Toynami. 300 of the $40 black bot (right) and 1,000 of the $30 full-color bot (left) sold out by day 2. The mold tech and paint design for both figurines were created by Daisuke Fukuda, pictured below.


Carl Brutananadilewski ATHF nesting dolls; $20 from Adult Swim.


A steampunk fawn and crocodile by Lisa Black, a New Zealand-based artist who embellishes old taxidermy with mechanical, robotic parts. The pieces both sold for $3000 and $2000, respectively, at the Century Guild Decorative Arts booth. The devil is in the details...

    I still have my original Voltron from when I was a kid. But I wouldn’t mind either of those two sexy beasts. FORM BLAZING SWORD!

    I may be wrong, but it doesn’t look like those are *both* Jokers. Judging by the green suit and purple hair (as opposed to the Joker’s purple suit and green hair), the one on the right looks to be the Jokester, Earth-2’s version of the Clown Prince of Crime. The Jokester regularly squares off against Owlman and his boy wonder, Talon. The difference is, the Jokester is a good guy, whereas Owlman is a member of the Crime Syndicate of Amerika.

    I shall now crawl back to the geekcave and await the nerd-signal anew.
