SS210's 2011 C2E2 Coverage!!
Well let me start off by saying attendance was allmost double whai saw last year.I think this could rival the SDCC within the next few years.
First order of buisness! Chrid Hemsworth aka thor i missed by 30min! Apparently from what the guy at the nacho stand said he was there in the very early beging for a quick 20min Q and A.Not the best way to promote a movie in my opinion.
Second order of buisness!! The awesome C2E2 "brightest day exclusive flash and batman figs! According to DC the Source.com all you had to do was stroll up to booth 717 and buy one or both.Well yes and no.It was booth 717 allright but you had to wait in another area to get a wrist band to have the right to buy them.They were $12.99 if you were so lucky to get a band.Several times a day they would release a unspecified amount of bands to the patient buyers.The ice cream cone guy said they only released 40 bands at 10am.Now the next round would be at 2pm.Now keep in mind its allready 11:30 am and im looking a a good 100 buyers in line.By 1 pm that number doubled.So i decided to just enjoy the day rather than spend taxi money,admission money and food money while just simply waiting in a line.Allthough there were several buy it now C2E2 Exclusives scattered through out the floor for 50 bux.needless to say im didnt come home with either figures.
Third order of buisness!! Danny Mcbride.Did not see him..at all.Allthough the burger guy said he was there in costume possibly.I talked with a few others and apperently he was there without costue just enjoying the day.
Fourth order of Buisness!! I bought a really cool batman graphic novel titled "Life after death" by Toni Daniel.The author was actually at the convention signing books but i was not able to get mine signed unfortunetly.So in the end i came home with a Masterpiece Megatron ,the above mentioned batman novel and even though i probably will NEVER watch them i picked up the complete DIC G.I.Joe series on dvd.Enjoy the pics!
