Big Bad Wolf Sale 2016 – CosplayFun Recon

Here are the good stuff that caught The Captain’s eye at this years @BigBadWolfBooks Big Bad Wolf Books Sale! Pop-Culture ICONs, Comics, Gaming, Cosplay, TV, Movies, Sci-Fi and classics!!

Here is the selection from DAY 0 aka Preview Day of this years Big Bad Wolf Sale! Do take advantage of the 24 hours opening times to comfortably browse, explore & shop. It’s very obvious to frequent goers that there a wider selection of books in each of the standard categories of the sale. Including a new area with Japanese & Thai books too!

Say good bye to the elaborate choice of food & drinks on the mezzanine floor! There is just only 1 source of food & drink which is a little cafe like place where the kids books usually is.

THE POP CULTURE GOODIES!! There are loads of new trade paper back comics or as they categorised it under – “Graphic Novels”, that we have not seen before. Most often we find the Marvel titles & comic strip cartoons but this year had a good deal of Dark Horse titles of old & new. DC was also decently represented with some nice hard cover collectibles like The War Years Superman & The War Years Wonder Woman, DC Super Villains etc. There is also the emergence of gaming ART books like The Art of: Uncharted trilogy, Final Fantasy, World of Warcraft, Fallout 4, Dragon Age; and reemergence of movie ART books – The Hobbit: BOFA, Book of Life, Penguins of Madagascar, Mr Peabody & Sherman, Blue Sky Studios etc. A lot of these goodies seem to be the similar stuff on offer at Book Xcess itself. However I could only manage to compare the Halo trade paper back comic & it was cheaper by RM 5. So it would be most gratifying for a bargain hunter / trift shopper if you knew the Book Xcess price then compare here at the BBW sale so your decision will be swift haha 

Here is our Top 3 Finds of Day 0!

  1. He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Mini Comic Collection – What’s this? Well if you collected these He-Man figures from the 80’s, you will know that each figure had a mini comic inside. The figure you bought would star in that comic, in that particular version whether good or evil. I thought it was a very cool way of extending the fandom in between watching the cartoon series. Anyways, my mom threw away my collected of mini comics & this is a very sweet redemption. The surprise part is that I never knew they made a compilation like this till now!! It’s in my hands haha ^^ RM 30 WIN 
  2. Star Trek COSTUMES – Outpost Commander flashed this new book to us which he picked up last year in America. This book is a whopping US$40… times 4.43 to our Ringgit = not going to buy… untill now! This book was released in 2015 in which it would feature costumes from 5 decades of Star Trek including the soon to be released latest feature film (at that time) Star Trek Beyond! RM85 WIN! 
  3. Game of Thrones: A Pop Up guide to the Westeros – Now is was the coolest thing I found at the whole sale – Game of Thrones 3D POP up book! I don’t watch the series but this pop-up book was uber cool with ideas I have not yet seen in pop-up books! Each page has a center piece then mini pull-outs + mini pop up in the pull out. All 7 kingdoms are represented & then the magic of which it ALL folds out together! RM50 for this almost magical collectible! 

As always it’s a MUST-GO!.. at least once event hehe! The check out counters are arranged differently & the queue looks to be a killer long zig zag…. however it does move fairly quick.

*IMPORTANT TO KNOW when paying – just know that there are 2 MAIN queues, the left line is CASH which is a lot shorter than the right line Credit Card. CASH queue is an ‘L’ shape & the Credit Card queue is the zig zag zig zag.
