Sideshow Collectibles has a physical presence at only one or two large retail shows a year, one being International Comic-Con held in San Diego, California. We generally create specialty items or Con specific exclusive items for these appearances.
We also understand that there are many collectors who will not be able to attend these events, and therefore may not be able to acquire the special exclusive items. In consideration of this portion of our collector base, we generally reserve a small portion of the exclusive items for those collectors to purchase on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.
For collectors who can attend the events, Sideshow’s Collect-n-Go program provides a unique opportunity for those collectors to reserve and pay for their Sideshow Exclusive items in advance of the show. This way, they can avoid the typical Con experience of standing in long lines, sometimes just to get a raffle ticket, which might allow you to come back later to make a purchase.
With Collect-n-Go, you pre-order and pay for your item(s) in advance of the show, which allows you the convenience of stopping by our booth anytime during the show to pick up your items! View our special Collect-n-Go video here. (Please note that we cannot transfer an attendee order to a non-attendee order once placed or ship you an attendee ordered item if you do not pick it up at the show. If you have any doubts about being able to attend the event, please order the non-attendee labeled exclusives!)
Prior to our convention appearances, our site and newsletter will have information available to collectors about our event appearances, Con exclusive items and schedules for when pre-ordering will begin for those items. If you are not a newsletter member you can sign up for free here.
