Visitors to Comic-Con this year will be met with a giant statue of Captain Haddock.
While obviously Tintin won’t have the presence he had last year, Tintin books and merchandise is for sale at a comic stand along with some other comics at the Last Gap booth. Judging from the pic below, some new collectible items from Weta are coming out. They don’t have these online yet that I could find, but I see busts of Haddock screaming and Tintin laughing in the background.
Though I can’t see it too well, Haddock’s face looks really intense with rage. I hope to see more of that side of Haddock in the next film. Tintin, in contrast, looks almost too happy for something I’d want on my shelf.
Sorry if these things are old news and I somehow just missed them on the net, it’s the first time I’ve seen them.
