NBC 2008 San Diego Comic-Con Exclusives - The Office, Heroes, Battlestar Galactica

NBC logoIf you thought San Diego Comic-Con was just comic books and toys you’d only be half right. It’s also a time for networks and studios to unveil their “next big thing” and/or celebrate with the fans the few things they’ve produced in the past year that have become a part of our pop culture. NBC has decided to start the hype early by opening their very own NBC San Diego Comic-Con store, which will be selling limited quantities of their 2008 San Deigo Comic-Con exclusives starting on June 18th.

NBC 2008 San Diego Comic-Con Exclusives
Battlestar Galactica LogoWhile an online site selling Comic-Con exclusives before the 2008 SDCC has even taken place doesn’t exactly make the most sense, it is nice that NBC is giving fans who can’t make it to San Diego an opportunity to purchase some limited edition memorabilia. According to the NBC Store they have four items debuting at the 2008 San Diego Comic-Con, all with varying degrees of limited edition runs. First up is a special edition limited run “Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica.” Dwight bobblehead & t-shirt for all of the fans of The Office out there. Then there is a Battlestar Galactica Frakkin’ Cylon Toaster, which actually brands your toast with a picture of a Cylon. The advertisement says this toaster will only have one production run, so I’m assuming this item isn’t all that limited.

Heroes LogoLastly, NBC has created two different Heroes items to unveil at this year’s SDCC. The first is the Current/Future Hiro Bobblehead, the first ever two-headed bobblehead which was specifically designed for launch at the 2008 SDCC (i.e. not limited at all). The second Heroes item is a Sylar Special Edition Action Figure, which comes with an exclusive painting designed exclusively for NBC at the 2008 Comic-Con. There were limited quantities of this Sylar Special Edition Figure created, and I would expect this item to sell out quickly between die hard Heroes fans scrambling to get their hands on all things related to the show and action figure collectors who love SDCC exclusives.
