NEW FOR 2019: If you were randomly selected to participate in an exclusive merchandise purchasing time slot, you will see a QR code on your selection confirmation! Make sure to keep your selection confirmation safe and secure! If someone else uses your QR code before you arrive, your code will not work and you will not be able to redeem your exclusive. If you are selected for more than one exclusive, you will still only receive one QR code. That code is specific to you, and can only be scanned once per exclusive you have been selected for. It is important to keep your selection confirmation because you will need it for each exclusive you need to redeem!

Reselling, sharing, or transferring a Comic-Con 2019 exclusive merchandise purchasing time slot selection confirmation is strictly prohibited. In the event that Comic-Con determines that you have sold your selection confirmation, Comic-Con has the right to revoke your badge and keep any money paid by you.
