2016 AwesomeCon starts Tomorrow

day2_06

We’re super excited for AwesomeCon, Washington DC’s premiere con. The glue is hardly dry on my cosplay (reveal coming later) but you can bet my son and I and some friends are going to be tearing up the aisles looking for awesome deals on TPBs, snagging some missing back issues, chilling with the 501st in the Star Wars area, and hoping that somebody has Garbage Pail Kids. Will we see Adam West or Bill Nye The Science Guy in person?? Will Kevin Smith remember me? Will the R2DC builders have a BB-8?

This link gets you tickets. See you there!

Check out our prior years coverage if you need any more convincing.

Snoop Dogg at Echo Stage

422snoop_08

This was only my second time getting to see Snoop Dogg live. It was amazing. It was life changing. And I’m not just saying that because I was backstage. There is one thing I have to say to people about going to a Snoop concert. If you have the opportunity, you have to go. You have to do it at least once. The man is a superstar. There is a reason he’s been A-list for 20+ years. It’s an experience. Click below for pics…

\IMG_7268

I have 300 pictures to show you from my two Mattel visits. The first event was just for collectables, featuring Suicide Squad and Batman vs Superman, as well as Halo and of course Masters of the Universe and Thundercats. Then the next day I visited the blogger breakfast where we got to see the items for smaller children, including the action figure 3D printer Thingmaker, Hot Wheels, Thomas, Monster High, and more.

Check back soon for my guided tour, but for the time being, check out my pics below.

IMG_7377

NECA blew us away with new and exciting figures from Aliens, Rocky, Hateful 8, Predator, Gremlins, Pacific Rim and more.

Ash is back in the new show Ash vs Evil Dead. I love all the dioramas that the artists at NECA put together to help “make the sale” at Toy Fair each year. They always expertly capture the scene from the movies, but showcase the figures expertly. These figures will in stores in March!

2016 Toy Fair Report – Diamond Select Toys

IMG_6536

So many wonders to behold at the DST booth this year. My favorite is the opening Shakespeare bust from stately Wayne Manner. It even functions as a bank, to help you on your path to becoming a millionaire playboy. Once you pick this up, check out our plans to build your own batphone. Retailing at under $200, you’ll get your every Penny’s worth. Ok, I’m sorry.

IMG_6604

Lots of cool new Back to the Future mini-mates are headed your way this year. Check out our gallery for pics of the 1950’s Western Marty, 1980’s track-suit Biff, 1950’s peeping tom George, and more. But we really liked these much larger, and slightly animated Vinimates. This Doc and Marty look fantastic, but also check out the X-Files, Aliens, Ghostbusters, and Predator ones as well. These are 4″ high, made of vinyl, and should cost you about $10 a pop.

Don’t stop there, keep reading and check out our gallery below.
