Wrekin Hill Entertainment will release Comic-Con Episode IV — A Fan’s Hope, its high-profile documentary about San Diego Comic-Con International, on DVD July 10.
A DVD-only edition of the film is listed at $19.99, but fans have the option of getting a $29.99 collector’s edition packed with figurines of the filmmakers. One of the sets includes figures of director Morgan Spurlock with Joss Whedon (the first action figure depiction for The Avengers director), while another includes Stan Lee and Harry Knowles.
The Whedon/Spurlock set will be sold exclusively at Toys “R” Us stores, while the Lee/Knowles sets are offered through select stores and online retailers.
A third combo pack from HeroClix will include all four figures for $29.99 and will be available at game stores nationwide.
Comic-Con: Episode IV — A Fan’s Hope follows the lives of five convention attendees as they descend upon the geek mecca in 2010, and includes interviews with Comic-Con veterans such as Whedon, Lee, Frank Miller, Kevin Smith, Matt Groening, Seth Rogen, Eli Roth and others.
The 2012 Comic-Con runs July 12 to 15 at the San Diego Convention Center.
