Topps Announces MARS ATTACKS San Diego Comic Con Trading Card Giveaway

Topps is pleased to announce a set of promotional MARS ATTACKS trading cards for distribution exclusively at San Diego Comic-Con in July.  This set of 9 free cards, featuring all-new art by Eisner award-winning artist John McCrea, is timed to coincide with the release of Mars Attacks Heritage, a deluxe re-issue of the original trading card series.

 

The giveaway will be the centerpiece of several events planned for San Diego Comic-Con, including a MARS ATTACKS 50th Anniversary panel on Saturday. To find the cards, fans must visit nine different booths throughout the convention.  When all of the cards are collected they will form larger image which showcases characters from IDW’s upcoming MARS ATTACKS ongoing comic book series by John Layman and McCrea.

 

“We couldn’t think of a better place to celebrate MARS ATTACKS’ 50th birthday than at San Diego Comic-Con,” said Adam Levine, Topps’ Licensing Manager. “This free scavenger hunt is our way of bringing the fun of MARS ATTACKS directly to the fans.”

 

The exclusive cards will be available throughout the weekend at the booths of Abrams Books, Diamond Comic Distributors, Funko, Gentle Giant Ltd, IDW Publishing, Mezco Toyz, Nerdist News via Legendary Pictures, Russ Walks & Wild Tempest and Toynk Toys.   Supplies will be strictly limited, and are expected to go fast.

 

“We’ve got big things planned for MARS ATTACKS this year, next year and beyond, and we hope fans will join us in San Diego to celebrate not just the 50th birthday, but a whole new beginning for MARS ATTACKS,” said Levine.

Our Final Two SDCC Exclusives!

Blue Snaggletooth 12” Jumbo Vintage Kenner Figure $80
License: Star Wars
Edition Size: 2,000 Pieces
Item Number: 80227

[nggallery id=23]

Blue Snaggletooth is the informal name of a rare Kenner action figure from 1978. Released as part of the Sears “Star Wars Cantina Adventure Set”, the Snaggletooth figure was intended to represent the character who would later be known as Zutton. However, the only reference used for the figure was a partial black and white photograph of the alien’s head. The body was unknown, so the sculptors and artists improvised, creating a tall alien with a tight blue spacesuit and silver boots. From 1979 onward, including later Sears releases of the cantina set, all versions of Snaggletooth were changed to a red color,  with bare feet and hands and shorter legs.
