DesignerCon is a convention that showcases art and design for collectible toys, customs, plush, designer apparel and more, and the event returned in-person. Last year, the event was held virtually, but this year, it was held at the Anaheim Convention Center on November 13-14. Fans had the chance to get exclusives at vendors, and many lined up early in the morning to get their prized items.

Some of the vendors that offered exclusive collectibles include Pop Mart, DKE Toys, MONDO, MightyJaxx, and more. Returning artists include Camille Rose Garcia, host MEDICOM, and Artist Series from [email protected] pack featuring Junko Mizuno, Tara McPherson, Aaron Kai, Sket One, and Brian Viveros. There’s also programming including a live battle between Sony Pictures Animation and Lincoln Design Co. and a live set from DJ Jeremy Sole during the VIP party.

Nerd Reactor attended the event, and here are some of the things that caught our eye including a collectible Winnie the Pooh figure where he… poohs.
