Photo TR: Theme Park Review goes to COMIC CON!!!!

Postby robbalvey » Sat Jul 22, 2006 5:02 pm

So I went to Comic Con in San Diego this weekend. For those of you who don't know (and knowing this crowd I'm sure ALL of you know) that Comic Con is the annual convention for people who are into all sorts of geeky stuff. Toys, comics, movies, dressing up like a Vulcan, etc...I saw some REALLY "interesting" stuff and a few AWESOME moments which we'll call my "top 3 favorite moments" of Comic Con (see the last few photos of the update below)

I think the photos tell the whole story....

So here we are at Comic Con in San Diego where all the geeks unite!
comiccon1.jpg
Security was beefed up around the place. (Why don't they have these guys at the airports???)
comiccon2.jpg
Whatever you're geekish about, it can be found at Comic Con! There were plenty of "Wow" players...
comiccon3.jpg
"Fantasy" people fit in well here too....
comiccon4.jpg
And yes, of course there are comics....
comiccon5.jpg
LOTS of comics!!!!
comiccon6.jpg
This is what geeks think sex looks like! =)
comiccon7.jpg
"Hello there Princess....may I show you my large plumbing tool?"
comiccon8.jpg
Whatever your fetish, there's a T-Shirt for it so you can proudly display your dorkdom to the world.
comiccon9.jpg
I almost bought these for Elissa! =)
comiccon11.jpg
I'm not quite sure what these were, but I kind of felt a little dirty after taking this picture.
comiccon12.jpg
Ahh, my favorite video game company was there too! =)
comiccon13.jpg
"Dude...I want my Yaris painted JUST LIKE that one!!!"
comiccon14.jpg
Here's the reason why I stopped playing DDR! ;)
comiccon15.jpg
I don't know what this thing was, but the moment I saw it I was all "Dude, I *NEED* my picture with that thing!!!"
comiccon16.jpg
Snakes on a Plane...
comiccon17.jpg
...this movie really could be pretty awesome....
comiccon18.jpg
...because any poster that has people on a plane getting attacked by snakes is pretty freaking funny!
comiccon19.jpg
AHA!!!! The one photo that makes this a legitimate "coaster" update! =)
comiccon20.jpg
So I saw all the Star Wars dorks and I was kind of making fun of them....
comiccon21.jpg
...and you know, that probably wasn't the best idea! =)
comiccon22.jpg
Damn...Boba Fett really does get all the hot babe action! Maybe being a Star Wars dork isn't so bad after all! =)
comiccon23.jpg
I stood here for about 3 minutes as heard as people walked by "Damn, she's hot..." WHAT?!?!!!!
comiccon24.jpg
Found out where Quaker is going to school.
comiccon25.jpg
I LOVE Transformers!!!!!
comiccon26.jpg
Sadly, this REALLY was the hottest chick at the show!!! *sigh*
comiccon27.jpg
Samuel L. Jackson *IS* Afro Samurai. 'Nuff Said! =)
comiccon28.jpg
Dude. DO NOT F**K WITH..... "Asian Jedi"
comiccon29.jpg
DUDE!!!! The King and Jack are Jedi's too?!?!?
comiccon30.jpg
Yay! More Theme Park stuff!!! Now this update REALLY belongs on the front page! =)
comiccon31.jpg
When I grow up I want to be just like this cool guy.
comiccon32.jpg
Here I am just hanging out with stoned Brian and the creepy GIGANTIC Stewie!
comiccon33.jpg
"Yes Mr. Vulcan guy, I really am the voice of It's Meeeeeeee Mario!!!"
comiccon36.jpg
I had to do a double take...."Wait a second...is it REALLY them?!?! Sure looks about right!" =)
comiccon37.jpg
Broccoli and Pikachu. It's an "Elissa Friendly" convention! =)
comiccon38.jpg
Oh, yeah! I probably should get at least one picture of the comic book companies! You know, being Comic Con and all! =)
comiccon42.jpg
"Autobots...ROLL OUT!"
comiccon43.jpg
"Dad, can we go home now?" "Shut up son and play with your ultra-rare, one of a kind, mint in box Vulcanus Primus toy!!!"
comiccon44.jpg
1998 Playmate model thinking.... "I'm going to be able to retire early after this show!"
comiccon45.jpg
OMG! OMG! OMG! COMPLETE SETS!!!!! 50% off!!!
comiccon47.jpg
Random Star Wars Jedi guy and the slightly pregnant looking Queen Something-or-another.
comiccon49.jpg
Dinner was at the Gas Lamp Strip Club. I was dissapointed it wasn't really a strip club, but a clever name for a "grill your own" steak place.
comiccon50.jpg
It was a popular place for the demons of Hades.
comiccon40.jpg
And hopefully some people here could appreciate the beer selection! =)
comiccon51.jpg
But damn! The food was good! =)

Ok, now onto my "Favorite moments of the show!!!"
comicconxx0.jpg
Counting down....
Favorite Moment #4. This totally funked up "I'm a turtle, but I'm in a skull, but I've got an RV shell on my back...." WTF?!?!? I actually almost bought it!!! =)
comicconxx1.jpg
Favorite Moment #3.
BEST COSTUME AWARD!!! It's "Priority Mail Box Samurai" sword master and "Pinata Cat Head and plaid pants" dude! Most awesomly ghetto costumes I saw all day! LMAO!!!!
comicconxx2.jpg
Favorite Moment #2.
Dude...it's "Porno Batman!!!"
comicconxx3.jpg
And my FAVORITE MOMENT of the show.....
"Princess Leia Buys A Pretzel!"
I really don't know why....but I just found this REALLY funny! "Luke, do you have $2? Crap...hang on...let me put down my blaster while I get my pretzel...."

2 + 2 = donkey!

Hahaha, nerds...

Anything new on the Wii or Nintendo in general, Robb? I seriously want to know if Sonic is indeed going to be in Brawl (wishful thinking).
-My butt has touched 112 roller coasters, how unfortunate.

I yelled at Elissa and now I have a crappy title!

I really can't admit to going to comic cons or else that would make my geek meter rise. Let's just say I might or might not have been to one of these. But that's top secret info. See!!!

Actually I only go to the Charlotte "Heroes Con" which is supposed to be one of the biggest in the country (hmmmm...) about every four years.

Ours is not nearly as cool looking as the one you went to. Thanks for the pics and the laughs. :) Awesome TR as always.
