I hope you had a good time here man...  How far was the drive?

If I'd known you were coming I'd have tried to meet up with you...  Or at least pointed you to some good places to go eat and try while you're here.  That's 50% of any trip for me is getting to try unique places from where I live, haha.

The PA group did a big meeting Friday, since that seems to work for everyone for the most part.  Lots of people, which was fun.

It was a great show...  Brent Spiner was out shopping just roaming the crowd and was behind us and kind of nodded our way since we were clearly noticing who he was, haha.  Seems like a nice guy.  I missed the ST Q&A too, and wish I hadn't. :(  I couldn't be there for it till it was over.

I hope you had a good time man, it's always fun knowing people are coming in from all over for the show.

Definitely one of the best characters IMO.

Who doesn't have a lot of friends in King's Landing...

Whose patron was just accused of poisoning the king...

That's what I was thinking, though he doesn't have a ton of enemies either...  He's just there.  Tyrion getting arrested doesn't help him though, for sure.  :-\

With Tyrion arrested who will pay poor Bronn?

Hit up B&N and bought some more mystery minis. They had just put a new box out so i had first pick. Pulled the 1/72 GITD White Walker. All caught up except for the 1/144 dragon.  :-\

Just as a test I punched in four nights at the Hyatt and was quoted $885. Ugh. Even splitting something would be hella expensive. I should probably reconsider the trip but I don't want to drop below 50% Celebration attendance. :P

I was just going to ask if anyone has seen Falcon yet on the pegs, I've been looking through the pegs at Target with no luck.

I've actually been surprised by the amount of sell through of all of the Cap figures, way more than the Spidey stuff right down the aisle

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series - 2014 Wave 2

Big changes!   

Chewie - OUT! (pushed out until the new blue/black package with larger window is running)

Fett and Stormtrooper - IN!  (see, Hasbro does love you after all ;))

6" Black Series Wave 4 Up for Pre-Order at EE!

This is great news. Seems like asking for a greatest hits wave of 4" figures isn't all that unrealistic after all...

Even though I managed to track Boba down at Christmas I may spring for this whole case.

Let Jayson make a custom prototype Fett for you... complete with box.

Keep forgetting to post about my trip to PA last weekend to hit this con. Thanks Jesse for getting the word out here about it. My wife and I had been looking for a fun day trip minus the kids, and she has a huge crush on Brent Spiner so this worked out great for me.

We came our on Saturday and unfortunately missed the TNG Q&A due to the huuuuuuuuuge line out front, haven't seen anything like that at a con before! Wow! It was nice of the cosplayers to work the line though, kept things fun.

Once inside we had a good time. I didn't find anything on my short list, but I did see some Gentle Giant jumbo vintage figures for the first time in person...specifically rocket firing Boba and the Gam Guard. I didn't "get" these things before holding em in my hand, but that Fett is really a piece of art and I may be picking these up in the future. The show was a great place to see stuff like that, and stuff I hadn't seen for years. As a loose collector, seeing all those 90s and 00s packages really took me back. Never mind all the vintage...

It was just a good fun day. I hadn't been to any cons for 10 years and it was nice to be back, and the bonus was my wife had a fun time too. I didn't have to feel guilty that she was humoring me!

Thanks again Jesse for pointing out the show!

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VII

Im not liking the Ben thing if true, I think if he had had a child with anyone it would have been Satine. But more to the point, it just changes his character significantly I feel like. He was always the classic warrior monk, live-by-the-code type guy. I also don't like the idea that he would have abandoned his kid, or even been oblivious about her. Plus how does that fit in the whole timeline? Would have had to have been on Tattooine right?

They should have just made her Lando's daughter and made things simpler.
