Well, The Blot proved highly unsuccessful in my pursuit of the pink YO! MTV Raps x Puma First Round sneakers in a size 14. Maybe that was a blessing in disguise, because there was some discussion of whether or not I could actually pull off the shoe. Thankfully Puma is releasing a new version of the YO! MTV Raps x Puma First Rounds in the sneaker line’s fourth wave of shoes. The new YO! MTV Raps x Puma First Round B4 sneakers are much more my style, and while they still have some pink to them, they are predominately black, white and green.
I’ve been trying to tie down an official street date for these awesome sneakers, but I have only found conflicting reports. Some say the shoe dropped in the middle of last month, but since they haven’t shown up on eBay yet I’m assuming that wasn’t the case. The other date I’ve seen for them is this Saturday, June 28th. Hopefully my local designer sneaker store will be carrying them. But even more importantly, I hope they will be released in my size. Wish me luck as I try to track down these high top sneakers before the end of the week.

One item I thought looked particularly cool on the SDCC Exclusives List was the limited edition Mighty Muggs t-shirts. There are two different designs, an Indiana Jones Mighty Muggs t-shirt featuring an Indiana Jones Mighty Mugg on a brown t-shirt and a Star Wars Mighty Muggs shirt with a Darth Vader Mighty Mugg on a Gray/Black t-shirt. Surprisingly, Hasbro did not make a Marvel Mighty Muggs t-shirt even though the shirts are debuting at the 2008 San Diego Comic-Con. Maybe no one told them of the importance of Marvel’s Super Heroes to the San Diego Comic-Con crowd. While the price and size run of both shirts are not known yet, we do know that the shirts will come in small, large and x-large sizes. (link)
The official Action Figure Exclusives List has been provided by the official San Diego Comic-Con website. It’s a pretty extensive list and has a ton of details on each product including pictures and run size of the item. While it says it’s an action figure list, it also includes t-shirts, bobble heads, dolls and statues. For anyone attending SDCC 2008 or is hoping to buy some exclusive limited edition items after the convention wraps up on July 27th, you should definitely check out the list here to see what kind of goodies will be available. It even has more in detailed pictures of the limited edition G.I. Joe Suited Cobra Commander action figure by Hasbro, which you can see below.
