Crave giveaway: Geektastic Comic-Con swag stash, part one
Didn't make it to San Diego Comic-Con this year? It's coming to you with this bundle of swag from the show floor. Comics, toys, T-shirts, and a Batman cape!
Congratulations to Wilson M. of Sugar Land, Texas, for winning a pair of Grado SR80e headphones in last week's giveaway. This week's prize will make one geeky reader very, very happy. To say my CNET colleague Seth Rosenblatt brought back a bounty from San Diego Comic-Con this year would be an understatement. We're talking bags and boxes of T-shirts, comics, and toys, many exclusive to SDCC. Thanks, Uncle Seth!
The winner of part one of our Comic-Con 2014 giveaway gets more stuff than we can list, but some of the highlights include an exclusive Comic-Con 75th anniversary Batman cape and paper masks from DC Comics, and from Mattel, an Arkham Knight toy Batmobile and Masters of the Universe Classics Hordak action figure (both exclusive to Comic-Con). Then there's a Hasbro Comic-Con special-edition My Little Pony Mane-Iac Mayhem with piercing red and green eyes and a metallic purple outfit.
On the Superman side of things, the bundle includes a DC Universe Superman: Black Zero Escape Lego set and a DC Comics Man of Steel T-shirt sporting the Superman logo. Take note, Clark Kent. It all comes in an Ogio Renegade 17-inch laptop backpack bearing the Daily Planet logo (tucked inside: a Daily Planet notebook and pen).
The "Star Wars" universe is represented too, with a limited-edition Star Wars Darth Maul: Son of Dathomire comic from Dark Horse Comics and Workman Star Wars math and reading workbooks for kindergartners and first graders, respectively. (Why didn't I get to learn counting from Chewbacca? No fair!)
All this geeky goodness tallies up to about $450, but you'll get this entire bundle for free. How on Krypton do you do that? There are a few rules, so please read carefully. And be sure to check back next week for part two of our Comic-Con 2014 giveaway.
