San Diego Comic-Con 2012 : Sideshow Collectibles Exclusives
Every year, just before Toy Fair, I used to wake up in a cold sweat, vaguely remembering a horrific dream where I am dropped in the middle of a sea of display cases and told I have to shoot everything in them...through scratches, dust and light reflections...waiting for people to pass...and I'm only 4 feet tall. Sideshow Collectibles (booth 1929) has stopped attending Toy Fair in recent years, making San Diego Comic Con their primary display opportunity...AND MY SHOOTING NIGHTMARE!!!
