San Diego Comic-Con is back and in-person through July 24.
The annual convention has hosted millions of pop culture fans from around the world since its first event in 1970.
San Diego Comic-Con was held virtually in 2021 and cancelled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so there is a lot of hype around this year’s event.
The convention features exclusive sneak peaks and collectibles galore, representing several fandoms, including Marvel, DC, “Stranger Things” and Disney’s “National Treasure.”
If you missed the convention or attended but couldn’t make it to your favorite booth, there are still several exclusive collectibles available online that you can purchase or pre-order before they go out of stock. (Hello there, limited-edition Funko Pop! you’ve been dreaming of.)
Here are the best places to find exclusive Comic-Con 2022 collectibles and merch online:
Amazon: The e-commerce giant has its own Funko Pops, including an Alicent Hightower vinyl figure from the “Game of Thrones” spin off “House of the Dragon.”
There’s also a Spider-Man 2099 vinyl figure from “Marvel: Beyond Amazing,” which is Spider-Man’s 60th anniversary celebration. Collectibles manufacturer Factory Entertainment also has its exclusive Star Trek hand phaser bottle opener listed there.
