Comic Con Sign Convention Center Cool Tone

Today starts the unofficial start of summer, with Memorial Day (in the U.S., for our international readers) finishing off our upcoming three-day weekend. What are our plans? James is hanging out in Minnesota (and watching X-Men: Days of Future Past), Jeremy's finally going to see Godzilla, Kerry will be re-living The Truman Show, and Sarah's going to be staying right where she is. Literally. Like, she won't be moving from her seat until next week's podcast. Or so she claims.

This week with James chillin' in the North, Kim has returned to the podcast to talk with us about the parking pass sales and offsite events, and on a more serious note we discuss the impacts from the recent San Diego brush fires. We also take a closer look at the new exclusive announcements from NECA and Hasbro.

It's May, and that means it's time for the return of the SDConCast, the official podcast of The San Diego Comic-Con Unofficial Blog. For those of you who are new to the blog and the podcast, the SDConCast is where the blog's team members get together weekly to discuss the big news items, catch up on their individual geeky activities, and help prepare listeners for the convention.

For this first episode of "season three", the team talks about the recent news regarding the badge resale (and lack thereof), the big exclusives for this year announced so far, and Jeremy professes his love for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Not. He does seem to have a man-crush on Dane DaHaan, apparently.

What better way for the team to spend Easter weekend than to descend upon Disneyland Anaheim for WonderCon 2014!

Saturday's programming schedule was very SDCC-like, with big Hollywood and television network panels. Godzilla! X-Men! How to Train Your Dragon 2! And much more.

Kerry assembled the troops - Shawn and Kim specifically - for this special Saturday "wrap-up" episode live from WonderCon.

One of the most exciting booths we were able to check out at Toy Fair 2014 belonged to Kidrobot, producer of designer collectibles and venerable Comic-Con exclusive exhibitor. The company was showing off its 2014 retail offerings, which included a treasure trove of licenses every SDCC attendee would salivate over: Futurama, The Simpsons, CAPCOM, and now Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Marvel and DC. But what really got us excited wasn’t just what they were showing, but what they were talking about in terms of their big plans for this year’s SDCC.We spoke with Allen Richardson, Director of Product & Marketing at Kidrobot, about what we can expect at San Diego this July.

And when we were making our short list of booths to visit during Toy Fair 2014, Funko was at the top. The company's line of licensed Pop! Vinyls have always been a big hit with our readers and Comic-Con attendees, and the addition of Super7's ReAction line made Funko hotter than ever. We were also able to chat with Super7's owner, Brian Flynn, on how the ReAction line came to be, what the partnership with Funko might bring to the line, and - most importantly - what SDCC exclusives we'll be able to get our hands on this year.

Check out both of these interviews on this special Toy Fair 2014 SDConCast.
