Famed director, Guillermo Del Toro, will be receiving his very own action figure.

This fully articulated tribute stands 8” tall and comes with a replica of the notebook del Toro used to record his notes and sketches for the award-winning movie Pan’s Labyrinth.

The first-ever Rick Hawkins action figure features the likeness of Shane Black and comes with submachine gun, pistol and knife accessories.

The final two exclusives are based off the 90’s film version of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  First, there will be TMNT action figure boxed set.

To top our most recent TMNT convention exclusive, we created one of our most requested items of all time – an epic box set of 7” scale action figures from the original 1990 movie! This incredible, convention-exclusive set includes Donatello, Leonardo, Michelangelo, and Raphael, plus tons of accessories, all in display-worthy packaging that replicates the movie’s original VHS release box. Figures stand in 7” scale and are fully articulated.

At over 2 feet wide, over 18 inches tall, and over a foot deep, it’s massive enough to display more than 30 figures at once, but we’ll start you off with four very special ones – Donatello, Leonardo, Michelangelo, and Raphael from the 1990 movie in 7” scale!
