this year’s recently concluded San Diego Comic-Con was full of events and surprises. Walking around the convention it was easy to find prehistoric-themed products, so we decided to gather some galleries and select the more paleonerdistic images.
JAZWARES: inflatable costumes of SPIDER-REX and VENOMOSAURUS
Marvel’s Edge of Spider-Verse # 1 comic will see the debut of Spider-Rex, a Tyrannosaurus with spider powers from another universe. Among the first merchandise products, an inflatable costume like the one that has now become a meme could not be missing. In addition to Spider-Rex, a dinosaur version of Venom called Venomosaurus was also shown.
HASBRO: Web Chompin’ SPIDER-REX
Hasbro also showed its own version of Spider-Rex, with sound effects and a web-shooting jaw.
