DKE Toys (who have always been one of our first stops on preview night of Comic-Con) are back with more exclusives, and once again enticing us to go by their booth early on during preview night. Take a look at what they have in store (so far at least, they have more exclusives coming so check back soon!) And as always, all of these items are very limited edition, so if you want one (or more than one) be sure to go by their booth as early as you can. In the past some items have sold out very fast. Their booth this year at Comic-Con is 5045 (which is the same booth that they had in 2015). All pics and info courtesy of DKE Toys.
