FullSizeRender 5

DesignerCon is working with Medicom Toy on several exclusive toys for this year’s show.  These will be available for pre-order as add-ons to DCon Tickets which go on sale on Thursday (8.9) at 1 PM PDT.  For each ticket purchased, customers may pre-order up to one of each exclusive for pickup at DesignerCon (11.16 – 11.18).

First up are two new Keith Haring figures – a [email protected] and a VCD—with brand-new designs that set them apart from previous releases.  The exclusive [email protected] features more abstract design than the previous releases and will be available  in a 100% & 400% combo pack as well as the gorgeous 1000% edition pictured above.  The DCon Exclusive Andy Warhol VCD features a brand-new ‘Pop Shop’ T-shirt graphic along with pristine jeans (no patches).

In addition the previously announced Andy Warhol 100% [email protected], DCon will also release a Chevy Metal 100% [email protected] celebrating the Foo Fighters powered super cover band’s headlining performance at the DCon Saturday Night Party ($35/ticket).  The Warhol [email protected] is included as part of the VIP Pass package and can also be purchased separately with the purchase of Weekend or Single Day passes.   These photos are for reference and the final production pieces may vary.

Designercon 2018 passes go on sale on Wednesday (8.8.18) at 1 PM PDT. It probably goes without saying, but  2018 is a big year for DCon.  This year, DCon is offering VIP passes ($60, friday-sunday), Weekend Passes ($35 sat-sun) and single day passes for $20 (sat or sun).  

The VIP Pass is the only way to attend Friday’s preview night. It also includes several other perks including early admission on Saturday and Sunday, an exclusive Andy Warhol 100% [email protected], access to VIP only lounges, experiences as well the opportunity to purchase VIP-only items.

The Saturday Night Party will be one to remember with headliners Chevy Metal, the  Foo Fighters’ alter ego covers-only band—a perfect way to celebrate this year’s Rock ‘n Roll theme. For 2018, the party is all grown-up and is now a separate ticketed event (not included with any DCon Pass).  Tickets for the party are $35 and will also be available on Wednesday (8.8).

If you love art toys (duh!), you’ll definitely want to join in on the fun this November 16th-18th.  This year’s DesignerCon is chock full of new and exciting: the move to Anaheim, expanding from two days to 3 days (VIP Preview Night), the supersized exhibition hall (300,000 sqft vs ~100,000 in Pasadena) as well some big additions including Medicom Toy, Mondo, Saturday Mornings with FunkOs and a few surprises to be unveiled shortly.   Not to be missed.
