In an interview with GPKNews this week, Topps Brand Manager, Entertainment, Mark Von Ohlen revealed details of Topps’ offerings at the upcoming New York Comic Con. This year’s show is scheduled for Oct. 6-9 at the Javits Center in New York. This year’s show comes right on the heals of the launch of the next retail GPK set, Prime Slime Trashy TV. Topps attends the NYCC every year, and like SDCC, usually has exclusive merchandise available. This year will be no exception as Topps will offer a Trashy TV themed set with 5 pieces of new artwork. The 10 card set (5a/b) will be available for purchase for $29.99 at Topps’ booth #454. Topps will also have a Star Wars Rogue One exclusive card set available, giveaways, and other surprises.
Topps today announced they will be offering new Jumbo Promo cards at this weekend’s New York Comic Con. Similar to the cards offered at the San Diego Comic Con, Topps is offering 5 different characters. The 5 characters this time are Bonie Jonie, Dead Ted, Kim Kong, Boozing Bruce, and Mean Gene. Like before each character comes in a 10 card set with the cards redone in many different languages. Each character set will cost $20 at the Comic Con. No word yet on how limited these are or if they will be offered after the show online. The San Diego sets were limited to 400 sets, and only sold at the Comic Con. So who’s going to NYCC, and can hook me up?
