Marvel’s Reality Stones are real, spectacular rubies — and they’re on sale now at the San Francisco Comic Convention!
From May 30 to June 2 at the San Francisco Comic Con, fans can get their hands on a specially designed Reality Stone, a gemstone that features a miniature human head, hands, and feet. The stone itself, called “Reality Stone #14” by Diamond Comic Distributors (DCD), is $29.99 and can be pre-ordered right now at Diamond’s official store.
“The fact that this stone has a miniature model of an actual human body on it is both intriguing and groundbreaking,” said Marvel Executive Vice- President and Marvel Comics Publisher Axel Alonso. “It offers us a unique opportunity to bring Marvel’s universe into the 21st century, and I’m excited that fans around the world can be the first to own one.”
Other Marvel Comics fans can be the first to experience some of the new Marvel Reality Stones through a special online sales event that gets underway on May 21.
“Marvel has always been ahead of the curve when it comes to creating extraordinary worlds for their Marvel Comics characters — and we are thrilled that the Marvel Universe is continuing to be a creative hub of such wonder,” said Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso. “The Marvel Reality Stone is a truly amazing addition to the Marvel Universe, and we can’t wait for fans to join us today.”
Reality Stones are not part of the Marvel Universe; they are an ongoing series from DC Universe/IDW and will be produced by all three imprints (Marvel, DC, and IDW).
The Marvel Reality Stone #14 is a four-inch-long, 2.5 ounce, gold-plated, ruby-like stone in a limited edition of just 100 pieces. It’s priced at $29.99, and it will be available for purchase at DC’s official store for $49.99 (regular edition) and $59.99 (collector’s edition) on May 22.
The Marvel Reality Stones have made their mark in recent years; DC Universe/IDW has previously featured some of the first Reality Stones, and Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier had to battle a Reality Stone in Captain America: Civil War.
The Marvel Reality Stone comes with a Certificate of Authenticity, and DC Universe/IDW will be selling the collector’s edition for $49.99 on May 22
