by Gary Catig

We’re more than halfway through August and before you know it, fall and Halloween will be here. With regards to the latter, Diamond Comics Distributors is holding its annual Halloween ComicFest at the end of October. Unlike previous years, they are pivoting in 2020 to concentrate on merchandise and collectibles.

For Halloween ComicFest 2020, there will be an expanded line of PREVIEWS Exclusive items from different vendors such as Funko, Diamond Select Toys, Hiya Toys and Cryptozoic. There is a wide selection pulling from different genres of pop culture. Let’s take a look at the great products that will be available.

“When Victor Von Doom rescues S.H.I.E.L.D. Director Maria Hill and visits Tony Stark’s lab, he assumes the mantle of Iron Man! Based on the hit Marvel Comic Infamous Iron Man by Brian Michael Bendis and artist Alex Maleev, Doom as Iron Man joins your Funko collection! Sporting his signature suit, this PREVIEWS Exclusive Infamous Iron Man POP! figure comes in window box packaging and features glow in the dark eyes and reactor details to make him really stand out in your collection!”

 

“Get ready for a night of Carnage! Halloween ComicFest 2020 will have an extra-scary offering this year, as Carnage goes glow-in-the-dark for one night only!

“This Halloween, it’s also Graduation Day! A Halloween ComicFest 2020 exclusive from Diamond Select Toys, this PREVIEWS Exclusive Graduation Day Buffy Vinimate depicts her in her iconic red trench coat, from the famous episode where she took on the Mayor.

“The PREVIEWS Exclusive Forgotten Idol Cthulhu variant pays homage to the many ancient Cthulhu statues in Lovecraftian lore.  This little guy will wait as long as he has to Vitimite find a good home! Sculpted by Sam Greenwell, this version of the figure features haunting dark green paint with weathered brown accents to show that this little guy has been around since the beginning of time! The 5-inch collectible comes packaged in a window box with an “Exclusive Species” foil sticker.”

“The PREVIEWS Exclusive Irradiated Cthulhu is all charged up! Sculpted by Sam Greenwell, this version of the figure features bright glow-in-the-dark green vinyl, playfully implying that Cthulhu has absorbed radiation . . . and it has only made him more powerful! The 5-inch collectible comes packaged in a window box with an “Exclusive Species” foil sticker. Both the Irradiated Cthulhu and Forgotten Idol Cthulhu figures are variants of the regular Cryptkins Unleashed vinyl figure, part of Cryptozoic’s original collectibles line inspired by creatures that have been the subject of folklore and tabloid headlines for decades.”
