This year, like every other year, brings a ton of exclusive merchandise that would make non-attendees drool. So far we have exclusives announced from Jakks Pacific, Funko, Upper Deck, Gentle Giant, Bluefin, and Entertainment Earth with more to come leading up to convention time. So here are the SDCC Exclusives for this year’s convention:
Updated July 12th Added: Lego, Crazy Cat Collectibles, Factory Entertainment, Neca, Jada Toys, Hasbro, Comicave,
First up Entertainment Earth has quite a few Marvel exclusives including Chair Capes (yep that’s totally a thing now) to make your office chair the most awesome chair possible. Both capes are limited to 1200 pieces each – brilliant superhero capes though!
Not only are those awesome capes available but also there are a few figures from their Bif Bang Pow! line of figures as well. Including the Pin Mate Wooden Figure set for Ant-Man and Giant-Man, which includes a 1-inch Ant-Man with a 6-inch Giant-Man, and a 4-inch Push Puppet of baby Groot. The Ant-Man set will be limited to 1200 pieces while the Groot puppet is limited to 2400 pieces.
Update: There will also be a 2-pack of Pin Mate Wooden Figures featuring Captain America and Iron Man as seen in Captain America: Civil War. Both figures stand at about 2 inches each containing a full 360 design showing off the characters.

Next are the Bluefin exclusives which only include 2 Marvel collectibles but they are pretty big. This year they have both a Hulkbuster Iron Man figure cast in 24 Karat Gold, and an Iron Patriot figure that is the 3rd installment of their “RE:EDIT Iron Man” series of figures. Both are stunningly gorgeous in look and are detailed quite accurately to what has been seen in the movies and comics. These are both definitely sure buys for figure collectors.
More information about these exclusives and the rest of Bluefin’s lineup can be found here.
Gentle Giant is up next with 2 pretty awesome exclusives, one of which I will need to get myself because it is in fact the best thing so far. First up is the Rocket Raccoon Animated Figure which looks like it jumped straight out of the character’s comic cover. This will be the exclusive I will try to get my hands on come convention time. The other exclusive is the Spider-Gwen Micro Bobble and it will be packaged with a mini card with original photos and artwork.
Updated July 12th: Also making it’s way is one of Marvel’s fan favorite anti-hero in micro bobble form. It’s not just one, but it’s 3 Deadpool Micro Bobbles inspired by the Secret Wars line. With absolutely no articulation these 3 mini figures stand at about 2.5 inches. When you pick up the set you will get both his X-Force and Weapon-X outfits with the 3rd being a 50% chance of either being the yellow outfit inspired by “Days of Future Past” or his Gamma-Glowin-Green costume.

In recent years Funko has blown up in popularity and this year continues that trend with their hard to get but can’t miss exclusives.
Starting off with their Pop! Vinyl figures we have a Translucent Glitter Green Goblin with his glider, a Black & White Deadpool giving a thumbs up, Doctor Strange with a Rune from the upcoming movie, and a Cowboy Deadpool. This year also includes some of their Dorbz as exclusives. There will be a Stan Lee, a pack of 3 X-Men (that includes a Wolverine, Ice-Man, and Colossus), and the only Marvel Dorbz that is in limited quantity (1000 pieces) a Chef Deadpool.
For more information on these and the rest of the Funko exclusive line-up check out their list here.
The last company for exclusive figures aren’t even figures at all. If you’re familiar with Disney Tsum Tsum’s then these two are for you. One is an Armored Baymax from Big Hero 6 and the other is Captain America both complete with a metallic finish on the armor and are larger than the average Tsum Tsum. The Captain America one in particular commemorates his 75th Anniversary.
Information for these exclusives are here.
The final two groups with Marvel exclusives for this year have exclusive art pieces for purchase that are perfect for a home office or geek den.
As of right now only 3 of his prints have been announced 2 of them being Marvel prints. The first one titled “Thanks for the Invitation” depicts Thor and Hulk on a small Quinjet ride that you’d find in front of grocery stores or malls, but the ride is out of order, since they weren’t invited to “Civil War” while the other print titled “Pint Sized Heroes” depicts the Big Hero 6 team all riding a Baymax ride. Both prints look amazing.
More information can be found here.
And to round out the exclusives, for now, is Upper Deck with 2 pretty awesome Marvel art prints. First is the Hall H print which has many Marvel characters hanging around outside Hall H. This print is limited to 100 copies so if you are planning on getting it be sure to sprint there. The other print is the Elektra Fine Art print that has her in front of a San Diego background. This print is also limited to 100 copies so be ready to race people.

Updated July 12th: More vendors have announced their exclusives list including some commemorative pieces celebrating a certain Star-Spangled hero’s 75th anniversary.
So far only one exclusive for them has been announced and they will be giving free mini-figures once again. This year we will have the chance at getting the HYDRA Captain America figure. This will surely be in high demand. As of right now it is not known which day the figure will be available at the con, but you do have a chance to win one online on the Friday and Saturday of the convention.
