I'm just doing a quick pictorial tour right now. I will be following this up with a detailed description of the con and the Glyos stuff soon.
Oooh, a groovy mystery! These were in the case on Sunday. I really don't see that armor as Panthor armor, but who knows, really? It was sizable against the Weapons Rack and The Goddess. I should have sat on the floor and took an underside pic. Someone probably already did so.
The end of the universe: a sign that says Shogun Warriors with a picture of Voltron, but called Golion.
Note to idiots: the King Hiss/Hsss shown here is not a production version. He is basically a statue of the work in progress. So calm the fuck down, seriously. KH is one of my top characters of all time. Bendy will be enough for this character. You will be able to make his jaw move, from what others were being told around me. I love that they did not skimp. He is both versions, equally strong for the first time.
And this is a perfect sub exclusive. Would a fan who picks and chooses want this? Not on your life. But it makes perfect sense for a collector who would get a figure of that guy from that one panel of that one comic that one time.
Who you gonna call?
Okay, so this was one of the most controversial things for me at this con. They want to take the best figures of our childhoods, make them 12 inches, and sell them for near $100 a pop - on giant cards? And they are making THIS many characters? We are through the looking glass, people. If this line is a hit and five cons from now I am hearing complaints that "when are they going to make 12 inch Max Rebo?", I quit.
In the Mattel panel, the lighting in the room was too high, so we couldn't get good pics until the group I was with grabbed Fangirl 2.0 and told her to dim the lights. You're welcome.
However, in the pic you can see someone's camera-on-a-stick clear as day. Exclusive!
The new Tron figures are so awesome, you can't even take a picture of them.
Ghostbusters figure display! Look for a petition to have this as a playset to start next week.
Charlie, please do not collect these.
But get a B'wana Beast! No word on Gentleman Ghost, of course.
Meet the new Optimus Prime.
Symbiotech con Glyos?
Some new Marvel figures. I buy one out of every 100 figures. I think my next one may be Captain Marvel.
For the three fans of this line - the new product!
Awesome Marvel display. It would only have cost you $2250 for the figures in the display if you bought them at the con from the "dealers".
The test shots and SDCC exclusive wave of the Outer Space Men. To the guy who said they were articulated like Kenner figures - yes, and? As I said to many people at the con this year, "100 points of articulation are no good if the ankles don't #(%(#%$* work!"
The new Battle Ram. I like it. Nicely detailed. My only wish would be that the back section had a door on the back that allowed a figure to sit inside. It has nothing to do with the original, just something that would add more play value if there is no firing mechanism on the new one.
(please note: this is not an official confirmed vehicle, just what the Horsemen might do on a Battle Ram)
The best Slave Leia I saw personally. But supposedly there were better ones.
It is a blade of death and an Ipod dock. Childhood dies just a little bit more each year.
Display for the new Alien Blu-Ray box set. Nothing like hyper-violence right across from the Hasbro booth.
While everyone else was getting pics of the slideshow, I took a sneak pic of this famous internet personality. Hint: he has facial hair.
Some of the great new He-Man figures for next year.
Self-portrait from a camera misfire. I need to upgrade to this decade in camera technology.
The October Toys booth, as seen by the Flash.
The end of the con is a lonely place. No more gamers standing in a fake ring playing Marvel VS Capcom. All of those unsold Bionic Commando lunchboxes heading back to the warehouse from whence they came...
The Glyos Crossover Global Booth of International Wonderment, in a non-busy moment.
The Shadowbeast from MOTU. Psst: he is not a Gorilla Grodd retool/pantograph. Quick question for the smart kids in the room: how many different ways can you sculpt GORILLA anatomy?
Enter the Twilight Zone. If I loved MEGO figures, I would have all of these. But I don't. So I will get just a few.
Awesome cool whatsits from the DKE booth. Should have asked the price.
A long shot of the Battle Ram
Tools of the trade.
A close-up of some Twilight Zone figures.
The paint masters for Waves 1 and 2 of the OSM, and protos for wave 3. Keep the sellouts going, people. We need to get everyone made in this line - no stragglers this time!
Hey Hasbro, thanks for not bringing ANYTHING that was shown in the Botcon presentation to SDCC. I'll just have to imagine how cool the new Jazz is.
A bag of Glyos goodness.
I went to SDCC this year and all I got was an enchanted hammer.
One of my bros Robby M. loves the fact that we are finally getting Roboto in the MOTU Classics line.
Before the madness of the con is fully underway, unpacking begins! And I snap a pic unexpectedly.
The con is over, and Jesse is telling me something. I snap his picture without him expecting it. Which was a trend, actually.
A bunch of Mattel MEGO styled Superheroes. One has special significance for me - but NDA and all!
