For the second year in a row, Conan O’Brien is taking his show on the road to San Diego to attend Comic Con International: San Diego, otherwise known as SDCC. Last year Conan partnered with Funko, the company behind all of the Pop! Vinyl figures that have been taking the world by storm. Featuring characters from a wide variety of pop culture icons, the figures this year honoring the late night talk show host feature Conan dressed as a number of notable characters from upcoming films, including Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Ghostbusters, Justice League, and Suicide Squad.
Conan will air episodes from San Diego beginning on Wednesday, July 20 and running through the week of Comic Con. Just like years’ past, expect a lot of coverage from the late night program pertaining to celebrities, movies, tv, sci-fi, fantasy, cosplay and more as SDCC is where the entertainment world collides with the largest comic convention in the world. Prices have yet to be announced on the 2016 Conan line of Pop! Vinyl figures, but they retail between $10-$20, so expect about the same at the con.
Get your very own Conan figure this year, including Stormtrooper Conan, Ghostbuster Conan, Superman Conan, & Joker Conan during #ConanCon at SDCC. Take a look at Conan debuting the Pop! Vinyls on his show.
Conan’s first year partnered with Funko (2015), the available figures for SDCC were Conan O’Brien, Batman Conan, Zombie Conan, and “Conan’s Monster,” a Frankenstein-like Pop. Those figures soon skyrocketed in price shortly after their SDCC debut. Prices have tapered off but still can fetch at least $80 each. The 2016 Conan line of Pop! figures will be sold exclusively at this year’s Comic Con International and are expected to move quickly.
Conan airs weeknights at 11 p.m. on TBS and be sure to check Conan’s page for updates on SDCC and #ConanCon.
