That's soo cool
I feel your pain in not going to CE2 Bro.
Indeed, and Pacific Rim... ROARED!!! Did anyone catch the Han Solo quote?
I guess I missed the Solo quote...what was it?
IKTIOT but I got William Shatner to sign my Bluray copy of "Fanboys" heeee.
I know... sob!!! I missed him because our deck decided it wanted to start tipping and Appo had to rescue it. To say I'm disappointed is an understatement.
And the quote ... "Don't Get Cocky Kid".
Don't be too jealous, Fandomfest was a big fail this weekend...especially Saturday. I got my autographs Friday night and Sunday AM and skipped Saturday. Turns out I'm glad I did. I think you probably would have stroked out.
ok i read that there have been past issues with this particular organizer so I will not be attending any of the FandomFests in the future either... if need be I will go to comicon or something of the like but this one is a washout for me
This thing just seems to get worse every year. It was ok the year I went, but I didn't like how they stuck Jeremy Bulloch in the hottest hall there. He took it in stride, but they definitely do not know how to treat their guests. I probably won't go again unless there is just someone I can't miss there.
Yeah, that's the way it was for me this year. I hate to support him with my business but Stan Lee! and Firefly! I couldn't help myself. Watch next year he'll bring in someone like Felicia Day and I'll be back again.
LOL! I understand that completely! However, from now on, it's gonna have to be someone I can't live without meeting. That guy is a plague upon that con.
Funny the local new reported it was a huge success. I wonder who they were talking took???
It was a success from the viewpoint that it had high attendance and I'm sure made a lot of money...........however, the total mismanagement of the con made it sure that a lot of fans and probably some celebrities won't be back...
Yeah what he said...it brought crowds downtown, it sold hotel rooms, people ate at the restaurants, the show probably made a lot of money (especially since people paid for tickets and photos and never got them) and it had an economic impact...but were the people there happy?
You'd think from a business standpoint he'd get his act together. If people can't get out and spend money because they're waiting in line for 4 hours or he has to turn people away that want to buy tickets and come in he's leaving money on the table. If it were better organized he'd make even more money!
I don't see it changing anytime soon unless the fan base speaks out and boycotts. This guy has been running this con for 9 years now, and based on what I have read, it gets worse and worse every year. Too bad too, because it has great potential.
IKTIOT but Sam Witwer will be at Scarefest in Lexington Sept 13-15. I hope to make it at least one day. Plus Malcolm McDowell is awesome.
Plus Wizard World Nashville will have Ray Park, Billy Dee Williams and James Marsters (Cpt Argyle? on Clone Wars) Oct 18-20
id like to meet sam witwer... seems he is only on saturday and unfortunately i have to work
IKTIOT but does anyone have pictures from waaaay back when we went to showcase cinemas for the animated clone wars movie?? Mika?? Zannah??
Sooooooo, when are we going to have another SW Trivia contest? Mika has held the trophy almost a year now, maybe over it, not sure. Time to hold a new contest!
Yea how about teams this time
lets say Jammies/Mika against the world
actually, I already have a plan. Thinking of doing it Jeopardy style, with a twist. ask 25-50 questions for everyone but Mika, then top two point holders play my version of SW jeopardy against Mika.
OK just make sure he has ear plugs.... he he he..
Dang, I was going to go Sunday...where do you see this? I'm looking all over the site I'm sure it's staring me in the face.
I only have three...here http://s7.photobucket.com/user/jedi...3&page=1&_suid=137642243050104959371513788291
This is probably the best one
I thought as defending champ I got to ask the questions...I have some real good ones I've been saving.
