SDCC 2017 Playmates exclusive Usagi

Thought I'd start this thread (didn't see one anywhere) in the hopes that people with more experience with Playmates' SDCC exclusives than me can help me get my hands on the exclusive Usagi Yojimbo figure this year.

I'm in Australia. Do Playmates do an online order and ship to US addresses kind of thing like NECA? Or is it a show-floor only kind of a deal?

Am I looking at resorting to ebay, or have online retailers (like popcultcha in Aus) picked up Playmates exclusives in the past?

Any insight would be appreciated.

I would look to ebay. Also check Big Bad Toy Store, Entertainment Earth, or any of the other big league US online toy sellers and pre-order. So far I haven't seen any promotional material other than what we saw at NYTF, or what Stan Saki talked about in his meeting at Playmates.

Playmates doesn't have a retail website. So I am not sure how they would sell direct to non-attendee collectors.

Thanks for the heads-up. I'll keep an eye out at BBTS and EE.

Playmates normally reveals their exclusives around July 10th-ish, so I assume it will be revealed around then.

Playmates has an Amazon shop called The Toy Box iirc. They sold some previous exclusives there. But they don't seem to really stock it anymore so who knows

The box art and configuration is amazing! This proves that Playmates is capable if they actually put effort into things...

Exactly my thought. This is one of the coolest things Playmates has done ever.
