Comic Con 2008 Day 1

Posted by:

Yo everybody.  Comic Con day one has taken place and it was a great time.  Transformers didn't have a major turn out today, but there were some pretty awesome things to see still.  There were a few memorable moments though, some of which were getting to see the Revoltech Figures on display... that we couldn't buy...  I did however manage to find Optimus Prime and Megatron available else where and pick them up.  They also had some of the TFA figures on display.  There was also this wall scroll... thing...  But here it is the glory of all events so far.

If you were around in the days of Beast Wars, you had probably heard of ReBoot.  Well, ReBoot co-creator Gavin Blair is at Comic Con this year due to the pending new series.  I decided that because ReBoot and Beast Wars were so related of series from Mainframe, I figured he had to have had something to do with Beast Wars back in the day.  Well it turns out, he is the guy who MADE the Cheetor character model used in Beast Wars!  So I had to shake his hand simply because he created the character that honestly made me a fan of Transformers. 

So there it is!  The first picture of me on okay, so that's a little cheap, so here it is me with my new hero.  Happy Viewing everybody.  Hopefully I'll have more to report after tomorrow.  Look forward to it!

Is there any information about what this year's exclusives will be? There was a rumor about a Classics Nemesis Prime a while back but that's all I've heard.

Very nice very nice... The robotech are very cool, but I'm mainly looking for pics of TFA. Not that I haven't seen enough already.

I'm going to go ahead and guess that Headmaster Returns didn't air in the US. Well, it did in Canada, and I missed it. And there's never a rerun. Ever. Not in any of the 18 episodes so far.

Energon Hot Shot, that article was considered by most people to be complete and utter BS, I don't beleive that it was real but I don't know, I've been wrong before.

Nice review TPR. I hope to give a similar review when
I go to a SciFi convention called "Scoutcon" on May 24.

From what I've seen, it'll focus on things like "Buck Rogers", "Land of the Giants," "Star Trek," "Lost In Space," "2001: A Space Odyssey" and "Star Wars."

But I hope it'll have something TF-related since TF is sci-fi too.

I'm planning on getting Brandon Jerwa and Herb Trimpe's autographs at this year's Emerald City Comicon. (My third and fourth autographs.)

It's not a trip, LM, it's in my city, which is one of the reasons I'm going.

For more info on it, check out their website:

Terrific post TPR! Sweet! As always, we're working behind the scenes on building infrastructure so that we can get this (Botcon and SB's SciFi conventions....) fully incorporated into our events and interview section.

So THAT's what you look like?! Gee, and I've always pictured you ~600 pounds, horribly disfigured dude who doesn't shower! :)

(HA! TOTALLY kiddin' hombre! :) Nice job.

LOL Perc!

I actually am, Perceptor, I just used a really good camera. Lol.

Just kidding of corse, I don't think there is a camera of that calibur. If there were, models would actually be allowed to eat.

Oh, and part II will be coming soon that will incorporate days two and three. I just need to get my buddy's camera so I can upload the images. So be patient, that may be up tonight or tomorrow.
