SDCC 2017 had some crazy stuff for toy and figure collectors

We may not equate SDCC with toy collecting, but that would be a mistake. The industry's biggest names are always in attendance; who would give up a chance to market to that many pairs of eyeballs? Indeed, the main reason I used to go to Com...
