00:00 Introduction
01:11 Galoob!
01:55 Stina Gets into the Toy hunt!
02:32 marvel and dc!
04:14 What!? Comics!?
06:40 So many toys!
21:06 What did I buy!?


  1. Any chance anyone knows where Dan got that shirt he's wearing during the insert shots I'd love to know!

  2. Thanks so much for all the coverage each and every year keep doing what you do best!

  3. The best part of these videos are the vintage commercials.

  4. The best part of Comic-Con! Sunday shopping for toys. 🙂

  5. That Batmobile was beautiful. What a piece. Thanks Dan for covering Comic-Con. Always enjoy your toy hunting videos.

  6. Man, so many drool-worthy vintage toys, glad to see there's still some bargains to be found though!

  7. @pixeldan the Richman-Gordman stores were a Midwest retailer, it’s funny, with you being in the Midwest and finding a toy from that area that’s almost 2000 miles away from home. Haha 🤘

  8. How generous that they just gifted you and Pat something ^_^

  9. You've always had the best coverage for SDCC and because of my diminishing vision it's becoming harder and harder to go to cons (didn't go the second day of PowerCon in the last CA because of my vision). Living vicariously through your experiences has always been a great way to make up for not going. Thank you so much for all your videos and especially the con ones. You're the best! Also… So glad that you didn't pick up any of those "garbage Joes"… Those abominations need to stay locked away for all eternity! 😅

  10. Captain power. Damn a core memory just unlocked i swear i had a toy of those as a kid. Oh! I had that knight rider car!

  11. Dan! I'm a sucker for Secret Wars too. Excellent find!

  12. Love these toy hunt vids! Surprised you didn't get the toybiz batman 1989. The incorrect version lol

  13. Arco was a division of Mattel. They made a lot of Barbie playsets and low-end houses and small action figure sets featuring Mickey Mouse and friends. I worked at TRU from 88 to 91 and during that time the store had 1 1/2 aisles devoted to Barbie with the other side of the half aisle being almost nothing but girls and pre-school Arco product. I believe Arco was what was known as a "letter of credit" business, they'd manufacture product for the big accounts on a letter of credit and the purchaser would accept the merchandise in China and have it shipped instead of Mattel bringing it here and warehousing it for distribution. (Hasbro had a letter of credit division called Kid Dimensions around the same time and that is basically how the GI Joe team described how the business worked.)

  14. How come you didn't do a full Booth tour of Mezco like you used to in the past ? And what happened to that eccentric dude who would give you the tour of the DC collectibles booth ? Those two omissions this year made your uploads feel incomplete

  15. Everyone is now googling “trapper keeper shirt”

  16. There was most definitely large pricepoints in the dealer booths. Sometimes n3-4 times what you can find elsewhere

  17. Can every video start with a pun from now on? 😂 There is no low too low!

  18. Even though I live less than 2 hrs from it I haven't been since the 90s as I don't know anybody that cvan get me in as normal tickets sell out in seconds

  19. I love the Killer Clowns cotton candy pods. I had the movie Batmobile. Unfortunately, I sold it. it was fun though. I also had Joker and Batman from the first movie. 50 for that turbo cycle is really good for that. I had a few Secret Wars toys. I loved them especially Baron Zemo. Those carded turtles are priced pretty good. It's crazy how high valued they are. I had the April with the orange on it. I wish I had gone for the Star Brigade line. I also wish I begged my mom to get the Defiant Space Complex. I noticed the McDonald's Super Marion happy meal toys in the case. I had all of those.

  20. 6:40 – Wow, I was huge into Captain Power as a little boy, and thought I had everything from the line. Never seen or heard of this before.

  21. Where did you get that Trapper Keeper Shirt? I have that binder and would like to get that shirt you are wearing too.

  22. Pixel dan and geek dad life two legends toy

  23. I hope you and geek dad life make a video together!!! Two legend

  24. Love me a good toy hunt. Glad you had a fun time.

  25. I bought a vintage Madball Touchdown Terror at that booth with the spider. It was definitely one of my favorite things I picked up at the con.

  26. LMAO 225$ for wolfman leo. I got my hands on unpunched MOC wolfman leo + movie 3 april together back then in 2016 for totalling 48$ 😀

  27. Arco Toys is affiliated with Mattel in some way. They also produced a ton of Barbie stuff.

  28. Spectacular all these vintage TMNT toys 9:35 tremendous and at 16:20 those vehicles are Holy Grails, you should have bought all esps vehicles from tmnt playmates Pixel Dan? greetings 🙂💪🏻👏🏻🇦🇷

  29. Like you Dan I like better the 90s versions Joe's love the super neon color

  30. I am planning to get many stuff after i pay off some bills but like the Phoenix ill return

  31. Seeing those Doctor Who toys within the first second is heartbreaking, they're nightmare priced online so I wonder what they go for at the convention

  32. Thank u for taking us down memory lane with all the classic figs… I went from age 4-14 just with the super powers and wwf figs♥️

  33. That's shirt pattern is so complicated! Did you get that at Dan Flashes? Also, dude, so jealous that you went. You live the life, Dan!! 😊


  35. Technically, Ron Lim’s cover for Silver Surfer #50 (“Deeply Buried Secrets”) shown at 4:27 was foil embossed. Chromium enhancement was less common and way more expensive. It’s usually associated with Valiant comics like Bloodshot #1 (“Blood of the Machine”), Turok: Dinosaur Hunter #1 (“Cold Blood Blazing”), and Ninjak #1 ("Black Water").

    I belive Superman #82 concluding the 'Reign of the Supermen' crossover is the only DC chromium cover published in the nineties. The most well-known Marvel chromium covers not counting reprints might be X-Men: Alpha #1 ("A Beginning"), Spider-Man Maximum Clonage: Omega #1 ("The End of the Beginning"), and 2099 A.D. Genesis #1 (“Mid Day Sun”).

  36. Many will disagree with me on this, but I feel that the 1990s was a dark, difficult time for comics. The stupid variant and foil covers, other gimmicks, Todd McFarlane and Rob Liefeld rising to prominence on awful art, the obnoxious "extreme" attitude going on during this era, etc.

  37. just a suggestion how about not going back to the studio every few mins and just have the video focused on the show. it is a bit jarring some times.

  38. Arco must have had a partnership with Mattel because they made a lot for Barbie too.

  39. Omg, the spidey belt! I would wear mine while i ran around with my spidey copter.

  40. Yo Robo thanks for all you do! Your work is great! Keep it up! I agree I fulfillment of completion out ways the accuracy of the details on building a custom. Bummed I didn’t run into you in San Diego maybe next year we will catch up be easy bro keep fallowing your source 🤙
