Kidrobot — SDCC 2019 Exclusives Pre-Sale (3.22 - 3.24)


The wondrous, never-ending convention schedule rolls on.  While we're mostly focused on Five Points Festival, SDCC is already on the board—just under two months out—as Kidrobot has just announced its four exclusives which they will offer via a three-day pre-sale starting on Wednesday (5.22) and running through Friday (5.25).   KR's 2019 SDCC exclusives include the Buzzkill Chia Pet 5" Dunny  [200 pieces, $40] by KronkMecha Godzilla 8" Chrome vinyl art toy [500 pieces, $100], SpongeBob 20th Anniversary 8" Shellebration art toy[300 pieces, $50] and the Aggretsuko 6" Rage Red GID vinyl art toy [500 pieces. $40 each].

The Buzzkill Chia Pet Dunny continues KR's new Chia Dunny tradition which began with last year's Jeremyville's Grow Love Daily Chia Dunny.  The stylish and shiny—thanks to an electroplating process—8" Mecha Godzilla arrives shortly after the new Godzilla: King of the Monsters film (5.31) and begs the question, of whether the character will make an appearance in the film.  As you might know, we have a weakness for translucent and clear toys, so that SpongeBob 8" Shellebration figure is pretty tempting.

The best (safest) way to purchase KR's SDCC Exclusives is to get them through their pre-sale release (5.22 - 5.25) with limited quantities of each available at 9 AM PDT from Kidrobot.com. KR will ship pre-sale exclusives as week after SDCC.  Limited quantities of the SDCC exclusives will be available at the show from the Kidrobot booth.
