This marks the third year for CONAN at Comic-Con International. In 2015, CONAN became the first late-night series to tape a week of shows in San Diego during Comic-Con, a milestone celebrated with the creation of the first-ever Conan Pop! Vinyl figures. This year’s collectible figure designs include “Conan as Spider-Man™,” “Jedi™ Conan,” “The Flash™ Conan” and “White Walker™ Conan.” Fans will also have a chance to obtain a limited-edition “MonoConan” through social activations and other programs.
As in past years, the 2017 Conan Pop! Vinyl figures will be given away to audience members following each San Diego show. Through a partnership with Pepsi®, fans in the Gaslamp district will also have a chance to obtain special limited-edition Pop! Vinyl figures, tickets to show tapings and Pepsi products by tweeting to @teamcoco with a custom hashtag and emoji each night after the show. Supplies are limited, and details will be shared across Team Coco’s social handles.
To promote CONAN‘s Comic-Con presence, TBS will feature this year’s Conan Pop! Vinyl figures extensively in on-air spots and within various off-channel media, including wrapped trolleys and bus shelters. And in an activation sponsored by SNICKERS®, costumed, life-sized Conan Pop! Funko figures will roam the Gaslamp providing the best photo-op in San Diego. Fans who snap #SnickersSelfies with the characters will be rewarded with a SNICKERS® and coveted CONAN swag – all based on what is revealed under a branded scratch card.
CONAN airs Monday-Thursday at 11 p.m. (ET/PT) on Turner’s TBS, and is produced by Conaco LLC, with Jeff Ross serving as executive producer.
Since premiering in November 2010, the show has been a hit with young adults, consistently delivering the youngest audience of any late-night series.

On the social media front, O’Brien has drawn well over 23 million followers on Twitter, making him one of the most-followed hosts in late night. Among the show’s other successes in digital arena, Team Coco and TBS earned an Emmy® for Outstanding Creative Achievement in Interactive Media.
