San Diego Comic Con Calico Jack’s Pirate Raiders Giveaways

            As per usual DST had some minimate giveaways at this year’s San Diego Comic Con.  Unlike other years though their giveaways were a bit different; instead of being new characters or blanks this year the give away minimates were re-releases, or advanced releases.  In this case the four main characters of the Calico Jack pirate line were released in single packs, one per day of the con.  On the last day you could also get a box that you then could put the four minimates in, effectively making your own Calico Jack box set!  This was a fun idea I thought and will become one of only a few minimates I will keep in package.  The boxes were numbered out of 250, but I have heard and seen boxes that were un-numbered.  Mine is number 208.  I love the bios on the back of the package for each character!

  1. Yeah, there was an error in which some non-numbered boxes (extras from the print run) were given out instead of numbered ones.
