If you’re heading out to NYCC from October 6th-9th, you’ll be able to find Gentle Giant collectibles at their booth (#2945). On top of a live panel taking place on Sunday the 9th bringing some all new announcements, they’ll also have a handful of exclusive items you won’t find elsewhere. Today, they’ve offered up the details on the goodies attendees can snag.
