comic-con inflatables for 2022

Comic-Con 2022 Recap

After being on a two-year hiatus, Comic-Con 2022 was back in action in San Diego this past weekend.  Inflatable Design Group was lucky enough to not only attend the annual event but also create multiple custom inflatable creations for the event. 

Batwheels Custom Inflatable Billboard

Batwheels is a new DC cartoon premiering fall 2022 on HBO Max and Caroonito.  To help promote the show’s premiere at Comic-Con 2022, IDG created a giant 38-foot-wide custom inflatable logo block.  This inflatable logo block was paired with a Batwheels building wrap to create a giant, 3D billboard.

This giant billboard was located on a major parking structure facing one of the main streets in downtown San Diego.  This parking structure is located close to the Convention Center, making it a prime spot for event attendees to view the giant billboard.  The Batwheels logo block’s total dimensions are 4 feet wide, 24 feet tall, and 38 feet wide, making this inflatable hard to miss. 

Giant Ozzy Osbourne Inflatable Welcomes Comic-Con Attendees

On Friday, July 22nd, Ozzy Osbourne attended Comic-Con to promote his new album Patient Number 9 and a special edition comic written by Todd McFarlane.  Also in attendance was a giant, 25-foot-tall inflatable replica of the metal singer.

The giant inflatable Ozzy Osbourne was inflated Wednesday, July 20th through the last day of Comic-Con on Sunday, July 24th.  Inflatable Ozzy was located in the back of the Omnia Hotel, across the street from the convention center, welcoming people to the event.  The giant inflatable gave event attendees a unique photo opportunity and could be seen all over social media, making this a successful promotion. 

Cookie Monster Inflatable Replica

Only at Comic-Con would you ever find Ozzy Osbourne and the Cookie Monster hanging out.

Located right next to the giant inflatable replica of Ozzy Osbourne, was another IDG inflatable, a 30-foot-tall robotic Cookie Monster.

This inflatable replica of robotic Cookie Monster was used to promote the new cartoon series Mecha Builders, which was shown on a large tv next to the inflatable replica.  Since this inflatable activation was located outside of the convention, even people who were not attending Comic-Con could stop by to take a picture with the giant inflatable Cookie Monster.    

This inflatable replica made an appearance in New York City last month and then traveled to San Diego for Comic-Con.  Custom inflatable replicas pack up small and are relatively lightweight, making them easy to transport or travel with.  IDG uses only the best materials in the industry to create all of our custom inflatable creations so that they will last for multiple uses.

Tuca and Bertie Floating Through the San Diego Bay

Last year, IDG created a giant inflatable floating activation to help announce the premiere of Adult Swim’s cartoon Tuca & Bertie.  This giant activation included inflatable replicas of the show’s two title characters and was sent sailing through the New York City harbor and along the coast of Los Angeles on the weekend of the show’s premiere.

This year, the giant inflatable replicas were back but this time Tuca and Bertie sailed through the San Diego Bay during Comic-Con weekend.

Of course, this giant floating inflatable advertisement was seen by many people and posted all over social media, just like last time.  Find out more about this inflatable floating activation in our Tuca & Bertie Success Story.
