Comic Con 2010 Aftermath...

Hello one and all again. I'm here doing my Comic Con 2010 aftermath special. It was as expected completely insane. This was my second Comic Con. My first was back in 2006 and it seems like there was twice as many people then the last time. It was very hard at times to walk the aisles it was crazy. The costumes were simply AMAZING! I have some pics below to prove it!

I've been hearing rumors for a few years now that they were going to move the Con over to the LA Convention Center which would be for me great since I live about 20 minutes away. It's about 10 times the space as the SD Convention Center. They definitely need to look into this as I think they have out grown the venue.

Other Con highlights. I ran into the Ghostbuster guys and the Ecto 1. The car was amazing. Completely perfect inside on every detail. Even the computers inside the car were working it was so fricken cool...

Also Kenner the famous action figure company. Had a life size action figure package that you could step into a plastic case and take a picture. It was a nifty concept I thought. I was able to snag a stormtrooper in there with me to snap a shot. Also ran into I'm assuming was the actor who is playing the lead in the upcoming Tron remake. I hope this movie turns out better than some of the other horrible remakes that came out earlier this year. Oh and I almost forgot I ran into a Mr. T look alike that was funny as hell.  They also had a Sgt. Slaughter look alike from GI Joe that looked just like the cartoon.                                                                                                 

I also checked out some panels on Comic book copyrights and trademarks. Pretty interesting how it's all pretty much the same as music copyrights in general. It looks also like they are planning to bring back the Shogun Warriors comic book or action figures in something. I used to love the Shogun Warriors.

I was also held captive for a brief moment by two Stormtroopers. An Imperial and Clone Trooper it was very cool. Also on the Star Wars front I snagged a pic with Darth, Leia & Boba Fett. Leia looked quite unhappy I must say. All in all it's always cool to come to the Con. They really need to start addressing the capacity and location issues. I would also say the parking gauging they did over there wasn't cool either. Let me know your thoughts if you were there. I'd love to hear from you.
