When it comes to comic convention exclusives, people talk about a lot of things: rarity, price, availability, etc. Now that Marvel has announced the first in their line of exclusive products available only at Comic-Con International in San Diego, they've added a whole new factor to the discussion: adorability.
As revealed over on MTV, Marvel is bringing a set of 28 enamel pins based on Skottie Young's series of baby variant covers with them when they arrive at the massive show. You're gonna have to figure out a battle plan in order to collect the entire set, though, as they're divvied up between 4-packs, blind box 2-packs and more.
A different 4-pack will be made available for one day only each day of the convention. The $25 sets are:
– “Guardians of the Galaxy” featuring Star-Lord, Rocket/Groot, Thanos and Nova– "Avengers" featuring Black Widow, Hawkeye, Iron Man and Thor Odinson– "Spider-Man" featuring Amazing Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2099, Silk and Spider-Gwen– "Women of Marvel" featuring She-Hulk, Squirrel Girl, Elektra, and Thor (Jane Foster)
Hulk/Banner, Captain America, Black Bolt, Black Panther, Iron Patriot, Iron Fist, Loki and Captain Marvel are only available in blind box 2-packs, which go for $12.50 each.
You'll have to spend money buying other stuff at the Marvel store in order to unlock the ability to purchase Ultron, Ant-Man and Vision. The pins themselves cost $10 each, but you will have to spend $30 at the shop to purchase one, $65 to purchase two or $100 to purchase all three.
Lastly, Nick Fury will only available in a pin and lanyard combo-pack that will go for $15.
The announcement says fans are encouraged to swing by the Marvel booth at Comic-Con all weekend long to trade amongst other fans -- and considering that some real fan-favorites have been blind boxed, that's a good plan.
Comic-Con will be held July 8-12 in San Diego.
