San Diego Comic-Con’s exclusive items list is vast. Pop culture aficionados can find convention only collectibles ranging from socks and protein shake cups to doorknockers and porcelain statues—and we haven’t even mentioned items that aren’t based on Star Wars yet.
With such a broad range of products and companies capitalizing on the value that SDCC exclusive status adds to their offerings, we’ve decided to compile a list of links to each company’s SDCC FAQs to help you get the items you’re looking for whether you’re at the show or going hunting for retailer shared exclusives.
SDCC kicks off July 18, with a preview night opening later this evening.
