BAIT SDCC Exclusives – Transformers, Hello Kitty and More


BAIT is headed to San Diego once again, loaded for bear with an arsenal of shiny exclusives for Comic-Con.  2017’s drops are all about Pop Culture from Saturday morning cartoons to 80’s video games to Small Gifts. There will be something for the inner child in all of us at BAIT’s booth [#5146].


Transformers and more transformers!  BAIT has Tran sformers exclusives for days, starting with their very own Switch Transformers vinyl figures. First out of the chute are six figures in two different sizes. Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Megatron and Shockwave will each be available at 4.5” for $20.  In addition, both Optimus Prime and Megatron will be available at the larger 6” size for $45 each.   BAIT will also have a super shiny 100% and 400% Megatron Be@rbrick set from Medicom for $125. 


If cute and nostalgic is more your speed, BAIT has  you covered with their new Pac Man x Hello Kitty crossover figure ($20). The set includes iconic Hello-kitty flanked by mini Pac Man and Ghost figures.  The toys feature 8-bit styling throughout from the jagged edges of the mini figs right on through to Hello Kity with her 8-bit style bow and Pac Man logo on the shirt.  In addition to this color edition for SDCC, BAIT will release a sleek Ghost edition for NYCC featuring translucent dark blue figures.


Following up on the OG Mr. Penny Bags vinyl, BAIT will release the Switch x Monopoly x BAIT figure in a new Pewter colorway ($50).  The new edition has us reminiscing about the classic metal Monopoly pieces.

Finally, Dragon Ball Z fans will l want to check out the Figpin x BAIT Super Saiyan Goku pin ($15).  This SDCC exclusive features a gritty, black+ white mono design.

3A – US Venture Epilogue during SDCC


If you’re going to be making the trip to SDCC this year, you’ll definitely want to add ThreeA’s US Venture Epilogue to your list of must-see/must-do’s.  The art and toy exhibition will start off with a private, invite-only opening on Wednesday and continue through Sunday (7.19 – 7.23) at the Sparks Gallery on Sixth Ave, a fairly easy walk from the convention center. The third Venture (after HK and Tokyo), will feature over 100 original art pieces from six artists including Ashley Wood, Siuyin, Syd Bee, Geoff Darrow, William Wray and Paul Pope. All of the artists will be signing together at the gallery from 1 to 2 PM on Thursday (7.20).

Beyond the amazing original art, US Venture will also offer a large number of Ashley Wood/3A exclusives including several Popbot offerings, a wonderful Isobelle Pascha 1:6 drop and two 1:3 TQ releases.  Hit the jump for all of the pics and be sure to check 3A’s official exclusives page for all the details.  While the early pre-order quantities quickly sold out, limited quanities will be available at the event starting on Thursday at 10 AM – get there early as an antidote for disappointment.  US Venture will also feature a strong selection of artist books from Ashley Woods.

In addition to US Venture, 3A’s SDCC booth (#734] will feature stock figures, as well as limited number of US Venture exclusives starting on 7.20, as well as a ThreeZero display.  3A will also present a showcase of original and licensed figures at the IDW booth (#2743).

Finally, US Venture will mark the debut of Fuck Everyone, the first Zef comic (A3, 11.7 x 16.5”), written by Die Antword’s Ninja and ¥o-landi with visuals from none other than Ashely Wood.  To celebrate all three artists will be on hand for a special ticketed signing from 4 to 5 PM on Thursday (7.20) at the gallery.
