Black Widow Statue Variant by Kotobukiya for AFX

 
 

Kotobukiya's statues are always so lovely, and this concept of Black Widow is no exception. Marvel (pun intended) at the beauty of the lady Avenger. Sure, this statue doesn't make her look very intimidating -- in fact, we're sure she needs help getting over that wall -- but rest assured, she could snap your neck if she had to.

'Masters of the Universe' Letter Opener from AFX

 
 

Be the master of your postal universe and smite those utility bills with this 'Masters of the Universe' letter opener from AFX. We can't guarantee you'll look very tough opening that birthday card from your grandma, but you might feel stronger.

'Adventure Time' Fionna and Finn

 
 

It's.... 'Adventure Time!' Have fun saying that everywhere you go when you pick up these exclusive Fionna and Finn figures, complete with their own tiny Comic-Con badges, so you know they're allowed to go everywhere with you. Sadly, no Jake or Cake, but a Fionna action figure is enough to keep us satisfied... for now.

Pan Statue from Gentle Giant

 
 

Bring home the creepy magic of 'Pan's Labyrinth' with this stunning Pan statue, in honor of Guillermo del Toro's darkly whimsical Spanish fairy tale. He has no eyes, so he won't be able to see what you do behind closed doors. Best friend ever?

Pullip has the market cornered on adorable, big-eyed dolls -- in fact, we're fairly certain the factory that created these dolls is also responsible for Zooey Deschanel's existence.

Dana as Zuul from Mattel

 
 

There is no Dana, only Zuul, so you might want to consider calling the Ghostbusters when you pick up this limited piece from Mattel, featuring Dana (Sigourney Weaver) in her memorable off-shoulder metallic dress, all possessed and ready to wreak havoc on your shelf... or in your fridge.

Bane USB Drive from Mimoco

 
 

We're not sure if we trust putting a bad guy in your computer's USB port, but if you need to transport files in style, we recommend Mimoco's Bane jump drive, inspired by Tom Hardy's character in the upcoming 'Dark Knight Rises.'

"Derpy Hooves" from My Little Pony

 
 

What began as a fan nickname for this wall-eyed gray pony who shows up in episodes of 'My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic' but never speaks, has been adopted by the crew and Hasbro as the semi-official name for the adorable little scamp. And this toy is just about the cutest thing you'll see at Comic-Con this year. We approve.

'Batman: Arkham Asylum' Kai Figures from Square Enix

 
 

Best known for their work on the 'Final Fantasy' series of video games, Square Enix also has a knack for some pretty amazing figures. This year they're bringing a black and white Joker and Batman, inspired by the hit game 'Batman: Arkham Asylum,' and we gotta say -- we're pretty impressed by the moody detail in these figures.
