Huck Gee x BAIT x Robotech – Hunter Debuts at SDCC !
Whoa! The rumored and heavily anticipated Huck Gee x Robotech crossover figures from BAIT are almost here! The Hunter (a riff on the Cyclone) will drop in both a standard white edition and an SDCC exclusive bronze edition for $120 each. The white will be available at the BAIT San Diego (920 5th Ave). These stand about 8” tall and are loaded with articulation.
These came out great. Hyper detailed Robotech style as re-imagined by Huck. Aces!

Woot Bear at SDCC: Scott Wilkowski Collabs
Woot Bear will be making the trip down for SDCC with two new Scott Wilkowski collabs available via the Hyperactive Monkey booth [#5640] on Friday (7.20) at 12 PM. First up is the brand-new Woot Bear: A Real Woot Hero mini ($25) in two variants – Woot Ninja and the Hyperactive Monkey Ninja which is a collab with Jerome Lu. Each features a different head sculpt – Woot Ninja has a bear head with covered face, while Jerome’s version has a smiling monkey head. Jerome also designed the inspired blister packaging. Snake Eyes or Storm Shadow?
If you’re looking for some of that double pour/”infected” magic that Scott’s famous for, the Resin Master Uamou Minis ($50) are calling your name. These smaller (1.5”) versions are inspired by the OG Resin Master Uamou figures which dropped at last year’s comic-con. No word yet on when these will be available. Secret Strategy: drop by booth #5640 early and often!
Beefy and Co. – SDCC Plush
Beefy and Co. has several exclusives and debuts set for SDCC 2018 (7.18 – 7.22) including the awe-inspiring Kaiju King which stands a towering 16”.

Both of the limited ones are editions of 100 and will be available for $30.
Beefy and Co. will also debut their brand-new PixBrix Poo sets—Unipoo and Pegapoo. Build your own Poo! Dig the fun concept. These should be a nice compliment to the brand’s ever-expanding plush line. Oh and be ready for new apparel as well. Get it all at the Beefy and Co. booth [#5051].
3DRetro – SDCC Exclusives from Coop, Dok A, KRK Ryden & Nathan Ota
3DRetro has lined up four exclusives for SDCC 2018. Let’s start with Mickey Finn from Coop in a stylish, crazy limited edition (50 pcs, $50) rocking both matte and glossy gold. Matte + Glossy is normally done in black, so it’s nice to see a different take. In person, this one is nice.
Staying with the precious metals, comes a new Anesthesia from Doktor A in silver (50 pcs, $100) with a reddish patina . SDCC also brings the return of Moe Hawk from KRK Ryden. First released in a full color version at DesignerCon, the punk skater strikes back with a stylized mono-ish edition (150 pcs, $60) with a bluish gray.
Finally, 3DRetro will releases a new Coozie from Nathan Ota in a sublime GID edition. What really sets this apart is that it doesn’t look like a GID piece. Instead of the pasty white/slightly green appearance, the SDCC Coozie (100 pcs, $100) brings a vibrant swath of greens
All of these exclusives will be available at the 3DRetro booth . In addition to their in-house releases, 3DRetro will also have a signing+release from Tokidoki as well as releases from 1000 Toys.
