At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, fans of DC’s Plastic Man are in for a treat as the show exclusive packaging and content has been released by Mattel.

This special packaging has been shaped to look like Plastic Man himself and it comes in a full-color shipper box for safe keeping. But the coolest thing of all? A pair of Plastic Man glasses are included that can be removed from the package and worn by you!

If you do purchase Plastic Man at SDCC, he’ll also come with a special suitcase available only at the show (packed in a separate poly bag). Not just any suitcase, of course… his arms, head and neck can be attached to the suitcase to make him appear disguised as luggage. Inside the suitcase is a chip-art comic book cover from the 75 years of DC Comics.

Those that don’t attend SDCC can still get Plastic Man, but without the collector suitcase.  Bummer.

    They did a really great job on this… A lot of attention and creativity.
