I'm going to wear a black tshirt with Wolverine on it and not bathe... I should stand out right?

Or, I'm getting a shirt printed up that says Jedidefender.com on it.  If you find me you get drink tickets.

Who knows....

Yes once we get a list of who is going to be in and around I will PM you guys my Cell Phone number (feel special yet?) and we will try to hook it up.

I was going to try to set something up at a bar, but instead we can just figure it out when we get there. 

Michael Rex, be warned my wife wants to meet you.... and she will probably come to the Happy Hour so everybody feel free to bring a plus 1....

I just don't know what my availability will be guys given the amount of work I'll be doing. I will try to meet up though.

Hey guys,

Our weekly Ph.Geek.com podcast went up today and it is really a prequel to our coverage this weekend of the New York Comic Con, so you may want to check it out. Last weekend we went to the Garden State Comic Con to kick off the con season before it peaks locally with NYCC. Anyway, feel free to check out the site and maybe answer our weekly question or participate in Weekend Free Writes. Podcast can be found through a link on Ph.Geek.com, through iTunes or at http://phgeek.podbean.com/. Look for us at Comic Con in our Ph.Geek polos for stickers and other geeky things to get excited about.

- "Movie Heroes" Light-Up Saber figures
- Hoth Luke!
- some sort of funky mini-figures (?)
- closer look at TVC Wave 11 - deleted scene figs

Methinks Paul is "back" now that there's a new Death Star Trooper coming.

:P

Love the deleted scene guys still. 

Light up saber figures are really bad looking on the light up arm but nothing unexpected IMO.  Nice Obi headsculpt though.  Really sharp.  Since I have an "ultimate" (or close) Obi and QUi Gonn, I'm not terribly disappointed in the light-up figures. 

They're a novelty, and at today's prices, one that I can easily pass on for the most part and not really regret it at all.

Hoth Luke = incredible looking even though you can't see his head.  I'm geeked for him regardless.  He's long overdue in this line, at this level of quality.  Another great hat to swap on some Troopers too.

Luke looks awesome, although it kind of looks like he suffers from WSMSS (Weequay Skiff Master Shoulder Syndrome)  :P.

Death Star Trooper...nice. No wonder they drug out the current mold twice this year, last milking of it. Something to look forward to...when it's actually released...this time next year.   :P

Is there another new kiddie line? How many do they need?

Yeah the shoulders on Luke are kinda disappointing. I'm much more excited for the Death Star Trooper. Looks way more proportionate than the original, and really makes that old one look like a mess. And I actually like the 30AC Trooper!

Bearing in mind they're prototypes too...  most likely.

Looks like Hoth Luke has a ball joint in his torso... could be good for hunched riding positions on the tauntaun.
