From teddy bear picnics to battling the dark side, or from sleepovers to saving the world, discover and bring to life your perfect furry friend when Build-A-Bear Workshop lands at MCM Birmingham Comic Con!

Throughout the weekend, both big kids and kids at heart can customise their creation, choosing from a huge range of characters, clothes, scents and sounds to take home their perfect Con companion.

In fact, the bear aficionados are bringing collectables from some of our favourite fandoms. Catch Pokémon (Bulbasaur, Charmander, Eevee, Vulpix, Squirtle, Pikachu, Meowth); go intergalactic with Star Wars (Chewbacca, Stormtroopers, Rey, Darth Vader, R2-D2); and pick up heroes from DC (Superman) & Marvel (Spider-Man, Black Panther, Thor, Hulk). There’s even Nintendo (Yoshi, Mario), My Little Pony & more!

Plus, they’re giving you the chance to WIN a £150 gift card and a Guardians of the Galaxy Furry Friend! Just head over to the art competition and use your creative paws to design your very own t-shirt.
