New York- October 1, 2019 – FiGPiN, creators of the next hot collectible, unveiled their seven limited edition New York Comic Con exclusives only available during the show at Booth #114. Exclusives include: Care Bears – Cheer Bear ($20), Dragon Ball Z – Bulma with baby Trunks ($20), Harry Potter – Hedwig XL ($30), IT Chapter 2 – Pennywise XL ($30), Marvel – Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse set ($100), Marvel – Thor & Loki set ($35), and My Hero Academia – Halloween Bakugo ($20).
Each FiGPiN is a hand-crafted enamel character pin that features amazing detail and handcrafted artwork, superior quality, and a patented pin backer that serves as both a pin clasp and a display stand. This patented soft rubber backer allows collectors to either pin and display their FiGPiN on a backpack, lanyard, or jacket, or place it on their desk or shelf for display.
FiGPiN truly elevates pin collection thanks to its iOS and Android application. Each FiGPiN features a unique 6-digit serial number laser engraved on the back that when entered into a collectors mobile app will immediately add that pin to the collector’s digital collection. Collectors can then discover the rarity of their pin and begin powering up their collection.
In addition to the offerings at FiGPiN’s own booth, there are nine other exclusive FiGPiNs available at New York Comic Con with seven different partner retailers. These include: Dragon Ball Z – Majin Vegeta ($20 – Toy Temple booth #2588), Dragon Ball Z – Master Roshi ($22, Entertainment Earth booth #502), Dragon Ball Z – Super Saiyan 3 Goku ($20, BAIT booth #220/322), My Hero Academia – All Might Glitter FiGPiN XL ($25, Funimation booth #542, My Hero Academia – Midnight ($20, Fugitive Toys booth #774),and My Hero Academia – Mina Ashido ($20, Toynk Toys booth #2164/2872). The Official New York Comic Con Store on the north concourse of the Javits Center will also have: Dragon Ball Super – Super Saiyan Goku ($20) and Marvel – Spider-Man and Captain America FiGPiN Minis ($25 for the pair).
FiGPiN logo pins, typically a gift with purchase at conventions or online promotions, have become a collectible in their own right. Fans will get the chance to receive one of two different New York inspired designs at NYCC with any purchase at the FiGPiN booth.
FiGPiNs come in three sizes – FiGPiN Mini (2”), FiGPiN (3”), and FiGPiN XL (6.25”). Each FiGPiN is encased in a museum-quality, clear polycarbonate display box with an ABS plastic base that is perfect for display. Also, each uniquely designed and character-specific background card within the box finishes the look, making it the ultimate pin collectible.
Due to demand, access to FiGPiN’s booth is on a timed reservation system. The first three sessions of the day have been determined by NYCC’s pre-show online lottery, which has concluded, but fans who weren’t selected as a winner or missed the pre-show lottery have a second chance to gain access to the FiGPiN booth. Interested con-goers should head straight to the FiGPiN booth (#114) in the morning, tap their badge at the virtual reservation station, and select an available session to reserve a place in line. Inventory will be restocked each day of NYCC.
