Card collectors might not care too much about Ben Affleck in his Batman gear or the latest Avengers tease. With that in mind, Topps is bringing several Garbage Pail Kids and Mars Attacks exclusives to the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con. From promo cards to prints to T-shirts to toys that poke fun at the President, there are plenty of options.
This marks the first time Topps has had an official presence in San Diego in five years. They'll be stationed at booth 4120 where they're hosted by Atomic Toybox Entertainment.
Garbage Pail Kids
A big part of Topps' Comic-Con presence is a new character, appropriately named Comic Conner. He's featured on an exclusive promo card that will be handed out as supplies (they're limited) last.
Comic Conner is joined by five pop-culture-inspired GPK characters for a series of six prints. Each measures 11 x 14 inches. The cost is $10 each or a full set of six for $40. Besides Comic Conner, other characters are He-Manny, Calvin America, Pacific Jim, Gamey Jamie, and Alien Ian.
Comic Conner gets his swag on once again with an exclusive limited edition T-shirt. Available only at the show, it comes with a $20 price tag.
Collectors can find not just one but nine different Mars Attacks promo cards at the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con. Each features art by Chad McCown. They fit together to form a massive puzzle. The first card is available at the Topps booth. The back of each promo card prompts collectors to go to another booth to get the next card and so forth. A full list of all nine booths will also be posted on the Mars Attacks Facebook page.
Mars Attacks vs. Presidential Monsters Figures Two-Pack
Who would win in a death match between a Mars Attacks Martian Soldier and Baracula? Whoever you want with a Presidential Monsters two-pack of figures. Sold at the Heroes in Action booth (3450), they're exclusive to the show.
