Trolls became one of America’s biggest toy fads in the early 1960s, and again over the years in various revivals from many toy manufacturers. After being off the market for nearly a decade, Dark Horse gave Trolls new life with a record selling mystery-box program. However, our San Diego Comic-Con exclusive is no mystery. This green Good Luck Troll with white hair glows under black light and is limited to 1,000 pieces.

About the book:
Don’t miss this exciting sci-fi prequel graphic novel of the highly anticipated Warner Bros. & Legendary motion picture, Pacific Rim directed by Guillermo del Toro! Chronicling the very first time Earth is menaced by incredible monsters known as Kaiju, these inhuman beasts rise from the ocean depths and threaten to extinguish all mankind! Witness the race to develop massive robot fighting machines called Jaegers, each one controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. This action-packed tale features many of the key characters from the film as we follow them in their early careers. Witten by Pacific Rim screenwriter himself, Travis Beacham, and with del Toro’s hands-on supervision, this volume is beautifully illustrated by Sean Chen, Yvel Guichet, and Pericles Junior; inks by Steve Bird and Mark McKenna; and fully painted cover by superstar artist Alex Ross.
