PREVIEWS, the comic shop’s catalog, starts the convention season off with a bang as it offers three exciting, highly limited exclusives at New York Comic-Con (April 18-20)!
NYCC Attendees can look forward to Marvel Comics’ Iron Man: Legacy of Doom #1 Variant featuring a sketch cover by Ron Lim; an exclusive Iron Man Wacky Wobbler from Funko; and a Ultra Detail Figure’s Metal Gear Solid 2 Raiden Camouflage figure from Medicom Toys.
NYCC attendees are encouraged to visit retailers throughout the show floor to purchase the collectibles. For a complete list of retailers who will have the exclusive items, attendees can stop by the Diamond PREVIEWS booth (#1231).
“We’re excited to offer these exclusives to NYYC attendees” said Dan Manser, Director of Marketing for Diamond Comic Distributors, the publisher of PREVIEWS. “Each month, PREVIEWS offers some great fare for comic shop customers, a number of items which are exclusive that you won’t find anywhere else. It’s a natural for us to extend PREVIEWS Exclusives to the 2008 convention circuit.”

Please note that Diamond will only have enough inventory on hand in New York to fill pre-orders from retailers to be sold at the show, and will not have additional inventory available for non-pre-order pick-ups. Retailers who plan on attending, but not exhibiting, will be able to order the exclusives from Diamond’s booth for delivery after the show. However, allocations may occur, especially as these items are intended for sale at conventions, and priority will be given to retailer exhibitor orders. Furthermore, if demand exceeds supply, product pre-ordered by exhibiting retailers may also be allocated.
