2014 Preakness

California Chrome

The running of the 139th Preakness was this weekend in Baltimore. I was on hand to cover the InFieldFest concerts, consisting of Lorde, Nas, and Switchfoot. In addition, I got to shoot some of the races, including the Preakness run, in which California Chrome (pictured above) won. Click below for more coverage.

It was my pleasure and privilege to attend Awesome Con this Saturday with the inestimable Mr. Stinkhead, where we saw no shortage of wondrous things. Fans were out in great numbers, with a metric ton of them in all manner of cosplay. Click below to see tons of pics and hear my thoughts.

Toy Fair 2014 – Diamond Select Toys

diamond_39

Diamond Select has also been one of my absolute favorite visits from way back in the beginning. I love the variety of props, collectibles, Mini-Mates, and other action figures all in one spot. This year was a bit tricky as there was all this cool stuff! that I couldn’t photograph or talk about. But let me take you on a tour of the cool stuff I did get to see and shoot. Like this dead-on Caesar Romero as Joker bust. Fantastic!

Hasbro is continuing their Star Wars Black line. Most impressive was the Jabba the Hutt, but I also spied the Biker Scout, ROTJ Luke, and Bespin Luke and Yoda. Check out my coverage including Transformers, Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America Winter Soldier, we got Kreo, Constructobots and an all new Star Wars game… and more.

Toy Fair 2014 – NECA

neca_08

We love the quality and accuracy of likeness that NECA consistently puts out year after year. And surprisingly, I was really excited about a larger percentage of the things they have to offer (I never really go into Harry Potter or Nightmare on Elm Street figures) This year there was an overwhelming number of figures where I thought I gotta get that.. And, above, is some of the only Portal property I saw anywhere at Toy Fair. Anyway, check out some really cool figures below including Alien, the new Planet of the Apes, Pacific Rim, and more.

Toy Fair 2014 – DC Collectibles

dc_48

I love shooting all the statues at DC Collectibles (formerly DC Direct). They really capture the essence of both the character, and the original artist on whom that look is based. Bruce Timm’s take on Batman is entirely different than Neal Addams’ zombie Batman. This is one of the few booths that consistently impresses, check out my photos below.

DC Auto Show

I went to the 2014 DC Auto Show. Some some cool cars. The all new Mustang, and Jaguar F-Type Range were pretty sweet, but I was also impressed with the new sporty Beetle. It’s come a long way since the original “New Beetle” that looked like a Sweet 16 present. Also check out the Zombie car from Walking Dead. Gallery after the jump.
