Sideshow Con Day 1 Reveals & Booth Tour
Today finally marks the start of the first-ever completely virtual Sideshow Con from celebrated pop culture merchandise manufacturer Sideshow Collectibles, with videos released today including a booth tour and looks at the Marvel, DC and Hot Toys panels! Check out the videos in the players below!
Keeping that “convention spirit” alive is an essential part of Sideshow Con, and many aspects of a physical convention are being preserved, including a FREE pre-registration process for priority access to content and merch, as well as early bird access to limited edition convention exclusive products, and contests. And with no lines or crowds to compete with, access to Sideshow’s full convention experience has never been easier!
Sideshow is no stranger to providing a bevy of online content during convention season, so fans around the world should expect Sideshow’s usual energetic content schedule, which features product spotlight videos, multiple daily livestreams, and the premiere of new entertainment content, including Season 2 of Sideshow’s Strike a Pose!, a sixth scale figure posing game show.
Fans who pre-registered for Sideshow Con have early access to Con Exclusives from Hot Toys, Sideshow, and more, as well as Sideshow rewards points, exclusive invitations to early previews and behind the scenes booth tours, as well as deals on official Sideshow Con swag!
Sideshow’s CEO, Greg Anzalone, previously said in a statement: “Pop culture is vital. Perhaps now even more than ever. While the disruption from COVID-19 has caused us all to step back and re-address our large-scale social gatherings, it’s also shown us just how much we appreciate and value the arts. Whether it’s reminiscing and re-discovering a beloved cartoon from our childhood or binge-watching our favorite movies and TV shows. Reading our favorite novel or comic book, playing with a toy, or appreciating a piece of beautiful art. Our shared fandoms, their characters, and the worlds that they inhabit have proven to be a great source of comfort for everyone.
The cancellation of 2020’s San Diego Comic-Con and similar events was understandable and important, but it was also very unfortunate for many fans and collectors. We are doing everything we can to make the most of this unusual situation, and to give something back to the community we love so much, and who has shown us so much love. Sideshow’s team has been going to San Diego since 1998 and I’ll dearly miss SDCC this year, but hopefully we can bring a little bit of that Comic-Con magic to people at home, and perhaps introduce it to many more people who’ve perhaps never had the opportunity to experience that amazing event in person.”
