Just over ten weeks to go till San Diego Comic-Con 2014 and news about what collectors of exclusives and variants can bag at the Con are coming in at a rapid pace. And the interest in this one may not just rest with the toy collectors as the fans of ‘Supernatural’ are many and rabid!
Dean Winchester, played by Jensen Ackles, drives a black ’67 Chevy Impala, christened by fans as the ‘Metallicar’, due to Dean’s love of listening to classic rock music such as Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin and, of course, Metallica while driving. Now, Dread Central are reporting that fans can own this limited die-cast ‘Blade Runners’ Variant model of the car, thanks to CineQuest.com and Greenlight Collectibles.
The press release from the companies reads:
CineQuest.com and Greenlight Collectibles are releasing a special episode-specific “Supernatural” die-cast Metallicar this summer, complete with Enochian warning.
The 2014 San Diego Comic-Con exclusive variant is based on the Season 9 episode “Blade Runners,” in which Sam and Dean Winchester find that Abbadon’s henchmen have ransacked and keyed Dean’s 1967 Chevy Impala SS in a search for The First Blade, engraving a warning: “Be Afraid, Your Queen.”
The message, scratched into the driver’s side doors and translated by Crowley, is written in Enochian, a language used by angels and demons.
Limited to 1,000 pieces worldwide, the variant 1:64 die-cast car will be released at San Diego Comic-Con 2014 (July 24-27) at the CineQuest.com booth (Booth No. 4738). A limited number will be sold each day of the convention to ensure all attendees have a chance to purchase the variant.
The release then goes on to say that you can pre-order it for around £7.70 ($13) by clicking on the CineQuest.com ordering page and then can collect this SDCC exclusive in person at the Con. A limited number have also been reserved for the sites own Club CQ members, as well as non-SDCC attendees, but we’re assuming that this second bunch isn’t going to be in large quantities – that’s why they’re called exclusives, kids.
