Now I know this isn’t Skylander related, but I had so much fun I had to tell you guys about it! A couple of weeks ago my family and I took a trip to the Wizard World Comic Convention in Louisville Kentucky. It was our first Comic Con and it was an awesome experience to say the least. My son and daughter had a blast as did I. My wife didn’t find it as interesting, but the kids and I were having fun so she was happy. I was able to meet a lot of people, see some really cool stuff, and shop from some pretty sweet vendors. There were some really impressive Cosplay costumes being showcased I was really impressed by the Dalek worn by Cosplayer Jon Cook whom took home the prize for Best In Show. I ironically took pictures of almost everyone whom one or got an honorable mention guess I know how to pick ’em lol!
Seeing Manu Bennett in person was sweet he has a really cool accent bet the ladies turn to jelly when he speaks lol! Check out the clip in the video of his interview at the Con. I scored a lot of sweet Pop Vinyl’s even met Chris Hamer and got a pic with him going to order a commission from him of a character(s) I know he hasn’t done yet so can’t wait! I also met “The Zombie King” Arthur Suydam and the Legendary Neal Adams! Mr. Suydam was a really cool guy I asked him to choose his favorite piece from the sets he was selling and sign it for me which he did as well as signed my Michonne Pop Vinyl which is now the Holy Grail piece in my collection.
I think I have become hooked to comic cons because I can’t wait until C2E2 Chicago Comic Con for those of you that have know idea what I just said lol! I’m stoked about seeing Stan Lee and getting the metallic and the regular versions of the Blue Lantern Flash Pop Vinyl. I put together a little montage of my trip and posted it to the Skylander Addicts TV page on YouTube. I included the video here in the post give it a look to see pictures and more from my journey and while your there take a min to subscribe to the channel as well. If you see someone you know or if you see yourself in the video leave a comment and let me know. Until next time, catch you on the SKYSIDE!
