It's subtle.  First, you'll spot a little red cardinal here under a Narutard's arm.  Then suddenly a wookie will be carrying a pig ... and so is Spiderman ... and that hipster girl over there is wearing a shirt that says "Nerdy Birdie".  This is not natural!

Yes, Angry Bird merchandise has infected this convention center in full force without warning.  I'm not sure why I'm surprised.  The damn franchise prints money. Ten million copies of Rio in ten days?  That's just stupid.

This toys and shirts are actually pretty tasteful in comparison to other mass-marketed nonsense available for purchase here, and on close inspection the build quality should hold down some heavy petting.  AmazingComics.com was kind enough to let me photograph their selection of bird smut, which ranged from $9 tikes to giant 16" boulder-sized plushies in the $70 range.  They're licensed/manufactured by CommonWealth Toys and in currently in stock.

Best sellers? Red bird, followed closely by the fail pigs. I quickly ran away before I became part of the problem.
