The San Diego Comic Con is ripe with freebees, t-shirts, and of course exclusives. There are always tons of exclusive toys and we here at Mania like preparing you for the Con. Last week, we brought you our 2011 SDCC Survival Guide. A few weeks before that, we brought you our 6 Must Have 2011 SDCC Exclusives. The list of toy exclusives has grown in a few short weeks and, already, we have put together new list of few more to look out for.
 
DC Universe Mez-Itz Mega Scale Batman

SDCC Toys

Mezco Toyz is releasing a 20 inch version of the Caped Crusader in their Mez-Itz style. The price is a bit steep at $200, but if you are a fan of the bat then it is a no brainer. Mezco has yet to release how many of these will be made. The box alone will be the size of a dorm room fridge. This one, perhaps, should be ordered online and shipped home. Pre-Orders are being taken now (here).
 
Twilight Zone Bob Wilson / Don Carter Deluxe Figure

SDCC Toys

All right, most of us have a William Shatner action figure floating around at home. After all, how we can we not? Bif Bang Pow! will release 2 of Shatner’s classic Twilight Zone characters in one box at Comic Con. The sculpt, 8 inches tall and officially approved by Shatner, will come with two different outfits. As action figures go, this is great. As for it being a Twilight Zone collectible, it is perfection!
 
Scott Pilgrim 6” Exclusive

SDCC Toys

This is for anyone else who is still in bewilderment that Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World came and went with out as much as a whimper. Those of us in the geek culture fully appreciate all that Edgar Wright and crew put up on screen. Their effort and cinematic joy makes the Mezco Toyz Scott Pilgrim variant all the more worth it. Sadly, with the presale, it is already sold out (seen here). Look for some on the show room floor at Comic Con or perhaps Mezco will be gracious enough to have some for a sale in San Diego.
 
Green Lantern Movie Light-Up Lantern 100% Be@rbrick

SDCC Toys

The Green Lantern movie has divided many Geeks this summer. This Geek in particular has ignored many of Mattel’s Green Lantern SDCC exclusives for better properties. This one, however, has that perfect retro appeal. The packaging is by Medicom & Diamond Comics which sets it perfectly in the vein of the old Super Powers figures. Though not a huge fan of the Be@rbrick line, that packaging caught our attention. Nicely done.
 
Doctor Who TARDIS

SDCC Toys

Who doesn’t love Doctor Who right now? The perfect desk top accessory will be at Comic Con this year from Bif Bang Pow!. Limited to 3000 pieces and priced reasonably at $15, you can easily dream as Sexy here will take you to distant places. Bif Bang Pow! will have several other bobble heads featuring Dexter, Lost and the Eastbound and Down. This one is our favorite.
 
ThunderCats Mega-Scale Lion-O Variant

SDCC Toys

The ThunderCats are about to return in a big way with their new animated series. What better way to commemorate the occasion then by getting this retro Lion-O. For the mere sum of $50, this 20 inch Lion-O comes with 7 points of articulation while having interchangeable glowing eyes and open mouth heads. He is complete with both the long and short version of the Sword of Omens. Yet to finish off this exclusive is an alternate left hand Claw Shield. What are you waiting for? Pre-Order it now (here).

 On their website the Tardis is priced at $21.99.  I couldn't find one decent action figure of the 10th Doctor.

@InnerSanctum ... but it'll be $15 at SDCC.  The $21.99 will be the regular price when it's released in November.

I got the TARDIS with lights and sounds with a Tom Baker, 4th Doctor, figure for Valentine's Day this year.  It was AWESOME!!

I would say the price for Bats is a bit more then a bit steep. I'll be interested to see how fast it sells out. The Lion-O looks pretty cool. Too bad the other character are not getting the same attention.

 Meh. I'm saving my money for the full size Sentinel figure on a blister card (like they did last year for Galactus) from Hasblo (not a typo, their selling system at Con makes them blow). Swamp Thing figure from Mattel, and the Dr. Thaddeus Venture with Rusty Venture figures (complete with lunchbox) from Biff Bang Pow. 

I'm skipping the Indiana Jones set and the Return of the Jedi set since it's just too damn big and pricey.

seeing that  one of those twilight zone figures of shater from no doubt 20,000 leques. may have to shell out the dough and try and add him with swamp thing and that star wars pack. plus that lion o figure is cool looking. espicaly the sword of omen's comic con looks like it has an exclusive for almost every fan of certain things.
