San Diego Comic-Con 2016 Exclusives Available To Pre-Order On eBay

Many third-party eBay sellers are now accepting pre-orders of some of the San Diego Comic-Con 2016 exclusive toys that will be available at the convention on July 20th-24th.

In previous years, we’ve had readers emailing us asking if it would be a good idea for them to pre-order anything before the show so they can guarantee that they obtain these toys. Our answer is always yes and no.

What we mean is we know that people want to pay the lowest prices for the conventions most popular exclusives and that can sometimes be difficult. However, we’ve been told that the pre-order prices available now are less than after the show. As once these toys are sold out and no longer upcoming, sellers are known to increase prices to help them pay for their trip to the show and have something extra afterwards.

So it might be a good idea to pre-order now if the price is right and you know you won’t be able to obtain it during the show or after the show. Just remember to purchase from a reputable seller with positive feedback and as close to 100% as possible.

By no, we mean some of these toys (such as the Mattel exclusives) are easy to obtain on Mattycollector after the show. Other companies like Hasbro, LEGO, and various other companies are harder to obtain even if you’re attending the show. This year, NECA’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sets (shown above) will only be available at the show, along with their Aliens, Predator, and other exclusives. So pre-ordering a NECA figure now is also a good idea.

In short, it is a good idea to pre-order now for some products that might go up in price after the convention. It is also not a good idea to pre-order anything for a higher price now that might be easier to obtain after the show (such as a Mezco exclusive, Mattel, etc.).
