I figured Disney would do something to attract people to it's theme park. I wonder if they'll have more Marvel figures on hand in their souvenir shops.

They probably will have more figures available especially at Downtown Disney. I haven't been to Disneyland in about a month, so Im not sure if they have the Avengers movie toys available there yet. If they do, thats what they're probably going to try to sell(that and the left over Thor and Cap movie figures).



I checked the weather for Anaheim for this weekend there is a 40% chance of showers for Saturday and Sunday. A 20% chance of showers on Friday.

Nice. Any news on other exclusives? DC Direct via Graphitti Designs? Marvel or DC got anything for us? I love con exclusives so I'm a little disappointed that despite the move to SoCal they haven't had more options.

It sucks that I'm not attending this event. I should have already met Candice Bailey at the G4 booth.

I'm guessing that Graphitti Design didn't have an excluvise for this event other than a T-Shirt.

I didn't see too much as far as the floor went today. My wife & I went in ST:TNG outfits & she was blind due to her non-prescription contacts, so there was not much sightseeing to do.

Tomorrow will be better, as I won't be in costume & can go off on my own as she'll be with a group.

I did get some photos of some Lanterns- Guy Gardner and Soranik Natu. Both looked pretty good. I'll put up pics later on.

Yeah all GD had were the wondercon shirt and leftover exclusives of Zoom from SDCC and Arkham City Sick Joker from NYCC.

I was wrong, they didn't have any Marvel figures at Disneyland. They didn't even have their usual Cap and Thor movie figs.

So how was WonderCon? Was it very crowded?

It was pretty cool. Lot of people, not as crowded as SDCC though. Imo the anaheim convention center made a mistake of having a volleyball tounament and like a cheer tounament going on at the same time. But they probably booked it before the anaheim convention center knew they were going to get wondercon this year. Made traffic/parking at the convention center a lil worse than it already was to begin with (weather(raining on Saturday) and Disneyland ).

I only attended Friday. It was NOT crowded at all. I got there around 11:30 am and was able to park at the convention garage (and there were plenty of open spots) and was able to walk right up to get my badge and then waited in line for a minute before they started letting everyone in early at 11:45 am (that was nice). Once in, nothing or no one was really busy. I was able to get and see everything I wanted. I walked the entire floor. Got some quality free SWAG (Full Size Avengers Poster from the Marvel Booth, DC booth picture where you get to digitally be a member of the Justice League). Bought and wore my official WonderCon T-Shirt. I was able to get some great sketches ... Brian Buccellato did a nice flash, Bernard Chang a Wonder Woman, Mike Choi a really detailed Batman and Livio Ramondelli did an Optimus Prime and Megatron sketch. All this by 3 pm!

I easily made it in to attend the 21 Jump Street panel. It started at 3:45 pm and I was able to walk in and be in the 8th row center area when I showed up about 3:10 pm. Even at 3:45 pm it was far from full. Anyways, Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are really good down to Earth people that genuinely care and appreciate their fans. They were totally cool and accommadating.

I then watched a little bit of the J. Michael Straczynski panel and then the Mike Mignola panel too. These were only half full at best.

Got back to the floor at 4:45 pm. Walked the entire Artist Alley and Guest Signature area again. Checked out a few comics. I got a nice picture of me holding X-Men #1 graded CGC 9.4 that is retail valued at $120K!! Never held a more expensive item in my hands before!

I wanted to stay to watch the premier of DC's Superman vs the Elite but got too hungry and didn't feel like walking around killing 1 more hour of time so my brother in-law and I left and got some food at BJ's. Went home and called it a day.

It was a nice and I'd do it again but not to say it was boring but I'm actually OK I was only able to go Friday because not sure what else I was going to do on Saturday or Sunday. I got what I wanted, walked the convention floor 2 times so I probably would have just found a comfortable seat and sat in the big Hall all day watching whatever panels came. Maybe getting out here and there for a sketch or two from some artists.

I felt WonderCon lacked the cool exclusives ... no DC Direct Figures, even the WonderCon exclusive comics were not real unique (no X-Men SF Giants Comic, no Godzilla destroying WonderCon, etc.). I did not like Gentle Giant's Star Wars Yoda figure ... it was I felt blasphemous to the true Star Wars fan and it was just a paper weight book end type of deal. It was not worth the $70 it costed or the $100 some folks are buying it on the bay. Thought the AFX figures were overpriced. So to me WonderCon lacked that real "gotta have it" item or "gotta go" moment. Friday was rainy and cold so maybe that explains some of it. I was definitely expecting more especially being in SoCal and in Hollywood's back yard but I felt the WonderCon's in SF had more glitter and pop. I'm looking forward to it coming back! I will say that the general consensus of Wondercon (Head of Entertainment, Head of Security, etc.) was they would like to come back to Moscone so I'd be shocked if it did not return.

Anyways, it was good times but I'm definitely looking forward to the machine that is Comic Con!!

I saw that they brought the Yoda down to $65 on Sunday. Yeah on Friday parking wasn't bad, got there around 9 something. Saturday and Sunday they closed the convention center garage by 9 something. Dropped off on Saturday.Had to park at Disneyland's Toy Story lot on Sunday(felt it was better than parking at the stadium,didn't have to take a shuttle, it was closer to the convention center and it was free because of my annual pass).

You were at the 8th row of 21 Jump St panel! Me too,from what I counted it was the 8th row center(toward the left facing the screen). I was the Asian guy with the green Hydra shirt .

Saturday I just stayed at the Ballroom all day. Even had the same seats I had on Friday.

Great review on the show. Glad you got all the stuff you wanted, and getting sketches is always sweet.
