San Diego Comic-Con emailed all badge-holders that the Exclusives Portal is open now through July 9. Basically, it’s an online form where you submit your name into a lottery for the chance to get exclusive merchandise from Bluefin Distribution, Hasbro, LEGO, Funko, or UCC Distributing. HOWEVER, this is also the autograph portal too. So you can also sign up for the lottery for a chance to get an autograph from one of your favorite celebs from DC Comics, FX, or WBTV.
Here’s the message:
Comic-Con is pleased to announce the return of the online Exclusives Portal! We’ve got some really exciting exclusives this year! You may have the opportunity to be selected to purchase Bluefin Distribution, Hasbro, LEGO, Funko, or UCC Distributing exclusives, or participate in a fantastic DC Comics, FX, or WBTV signing!
The portal is now open for all fans with a Comic-Con 2019 badge associated to their Comic-Con Member ID account. To see if you are eligible to participate, simply log in to your Comic-Con Member ID account and select the “Exclusives” tab.
The deadline to submit interest is 12:00 PM (noon) Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) on July 9, 2019. This will be your only chance to submit interest in participating! There will be no onsite opportunities to secure exclusive merchandise purchasing time slots or exclusive signings.
New for Comic-Con 2019! Eligible fans are assigned a set number of “credits” to apply to exclusives. You may place a single credit on multiple exclusives, or you may choose to use all of your credits on one exclusive, to increase your odds of being randomly selected! Please keep in mind that credits are limited, and you will not be able to enter all exclusive opportunities. Only use credits on the exclusives you are most interested in!
Participants will be randomly selected about 48 – 72 hours after the Exclusives Portal closes. After the selection process is complete, a notification will be sent to you via email.
Please keep in mind that not all eligible participants will be selected. Adding an exclusive to your cart or submitting interest does not guarantee selection.
Please visit www.comic-con.org/cci/exclusives for more information. New exclusives may be added to the Exclusives Portal at a later date. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for exclusives announcements and additions!
