"Comic-Con has become the place, really the only place, where you can go to get these limited-edition, first-edition products," said Rich Collins, chief of Big Tent Entertainment, which makes toys and products for Domo, Dark Horse Comics and other brands. "If you're a fan of this genre, this is THE show, not just in the U.S., but globally."
As Stevenson of Huckleberry Toys puts it, "They have anything and everything for sale down there. If you can't find something you like ... you must not really be into pop culture."
