Cryptozoic’s exclusive and limited figures were made available via online presales before the show. Those who bought the figures that way can pick them up at the booth. Everyone else at the show can purchase these collectibles while supplies last. The figures are:
Treasure Kraken (CryptkinsTM: Series 2): This is an ECCC-exclusive variant of the regular Cryptkins: Series 2 vinyl figure, part of Cryptozoic’s original IP featuring creatures that have long been the subject of folklore and tabloid headlines. This figure sports a color scheme inspired by the green hue of treasure oxidizing in the ocean. The 2.25-inch collectible comes packaged in a miniature crate with a foil sticker marking it as “Exclusive Species.” Only 300 figures have been produced, with each selling for $15.
Classic Mera (DC Bombshells: Series 3): This Cryptozoic-exclusive variant of the regular DC Bombshells: Series 3 figure features a costume inspired by the classic colors of Aquaman, Mera’s love interest in comics and the recent movie. Designed by Pedro Astudillo and sculpted by Anders Ehrenborg, the 7-inch collectible comes packaged in Cryptozoic’s signature window box and will be offered for $30. After premiering at Emerald City Comic Con 2019, the figure will be available for sale on the Cryptozoic eStore and sold at future events while supplies last.
