Toy News: Shocker Toys hits Wizard's Chicago Comic-Con Booth #1333

Shocker Toys hits Wizard’s Chicago Comic-Con Booth #1333 with the ever popular Wizard Maxx exclusive, debuting Comic-Con exclusives and all of Indie Spotlight Series1.

Tribune’s Dick Tracy will make an appearance August 6-9th at the Rosemont, IL convention center as a hyper-articulated 6” action figure in creator Chester Gould’s black and white comic strip style. The World’s Most Famous Detective will be available in two limited run action figures. The B&W standard version with suit and pistol, limited to 50 pieces, will be available at the Shocker Toys booth #1333. The B&W variant figure, limited to 50 pieces, with Tracy in his iconic trench coat with Tommy gun, will also be available at the booth.

Shocker Toys' booth will also highlight their new articulated designer line, Mallows, with three exclusives: A Mallow version of the CCI Guy (50 pcs), The Phantom with yellow/black trunks (50 pcs) and Dethklok’s favorite rock and roll clown, Dr. Rockzo (50 pcs). On hand will also be DIY blank Mallows in black or white to design your own creations for fun at home or at the show's on-site custom contests. Artist custom Mallows will be showcased featuring artists such as Phetus, Rsin, Mad Hatter Creative and more.

If Dr. Rockzo isn't enough for fans of Adult Swim’s Metalocalypse, Shocker Toys will also be featuring a 50 piece re-release of the now legendary Dethklok set that took the metal world by storm in 2008.

Booth #1333 will feature contests, giveaways, feedback and new products. Also, meet Wizard Guest Geoff Beckett, the CEO of Shocker Toys, who will be answering questions about upcoming releases for Mallows, Indie Spotlight Series 2 and 3 and more. Be sure to mark it on your list of booths to visit.

In addition to the debuting exclusives, updates to the Indie Spotlight line will be on display at the booth. This includes Series 2 in the final development stages, lineup and preliminary development for Series 3, and for the second Wizard show since Philly, Indie Spotlight Series 1 is back in stock. Look for the full lineup available at the booth along with Translucent Scuds, Mini Maxx figures and more.
