One of the favorite parts of Comic-Con is the time honored tradition of SWAG (stuff we all get). Swag taps into the little archeologist in all of us. We search, hunt, and discover what might be a hidden treasure among the sea of over prices Exclusives. Most of it is ends up in the trash or in the back of the closet- but some end up being the cherished trophy to commemorate this year’s Comic-Con. Here are some of your favorite swag you sent in:

“It has to be the Sharknado tee I snagged from SyFy. Showing off my intellectual taste in film!” @The_Green_Key

“I have a collection of Psych comic con T-shirts and this year’s didn’t disappoint.” @Adieangel

  1. My NECA Jason figure exclusive and the Iron Man Mark VI bobble head are definitely up there. But my absolute favorites have to be my autographs from Stan Lee and Todd McFarlane and my Thanos sketch by Todd Nauck.

  2. Pretty excited about my complete set of ORPHAN BLACK pins. My husband loves his Dipper hat from the Mystery Falls panel and his Sharknado tee.

  3. I don’t know how it happened, but I found a Nerd Machine keychain in my backpack. There is no possible explanation behind my getting one of those, except maybe for reverse-pick pocketing. 😉 Someone was stealthily dropping swag in unsuspecting people’s bags! Another of my Twitter peeps got one the same exact way (unknown!). 🙂

  4. I got a free Godzilla t-shirt at the Godzilla Encounter for having to wait in line while Gareth Edwards was inside with the press. Favorite exclusives I picked up were the NECA NES Jason figure and my mini He-Man and Skeletor figs.

  5. My favorite swag was the How To Train Your Dragon 2 print by Drew Struzan given out at the Dreamworks Animation panel. Got it signed by the director and Mr. Struzan in the Fox booth too! Gorgeous artwork. Other favorites were the Mockingjay pin from Lionsgate and the Hobbit leather pouch with the coin from Warner Brothers.

  6. 1.Ender’s Game International Fleet T-shirt, a pin and dogtags – I even wore them when I went to The Battle School for the second time 😉
    2. Black Sails bandanas
    3. Haven pins, Haven police dept. patch. ( and the fact that people at Haven booth were really nice, there were never lines, no one ever yelled, the swag was there all the time…)
