SDCC 2015 Wrap-up: Tons O’ COSPLAY!!

The floors of SDCC are packed with peeps eagerly roaming like alien abducted cattle from one side of the massive hall to the other. I noticed that at least half those folks are dressed up as Captain America and Black Widow… zing! Yup it’s cosplay time!

Despite the FACT that there were enough people dressed up as Avengers this year to fill the ranks of the US Military, there was a ton of fantastic costumes to check out. I get my best cardio on “Cosplay photo get’n day” because ever which way I turn my head, there’s some awesomeness walking by that requires me to rush off in an attempt to catch up before they vanish into the crowd of sweaty, Cheetos stained ether.

I KNOW I’ve seen comics there at least once in the past 4 years, I just can’t place where.
One day they’re going to change the name of “San Diego Comic Con” to “San Diego Cosplay and Movie/TV Stuff You Can Sit in Line For Con” or SDCAM/TSYCSILFC… tm.

Just rolls off the tongue.

SDCC 2015 Wrap Up! Toys & Collectibles

Alive, slightly less sore, a little less tired and a whole lot more excited about all the amazing goodies coming out in the next year. That’s me, right now, a few days after the mean streets of SDCC closed it’s hollowed halls.

Actually, THAT’S me (Thanks Sideshow Collectibles), sporting my first ever semi-cosplay as the mighty Jack Burton from Big Trouble and Little China. Never having done that sort of thing before I can tell you, it’s a little strange being on the other side of the lens. I was stopped constantly by people happy to see their nigh-forgotten hero brought to life in front of them so perfectly.
“Wait a minute, Kurt Russel didn’t have a beard in that movie.”
“But he COULD! It’s all in the reflexes.”

I took a million photos, just like I do each year and as a result, I’ve only been able to go through and edit a few. I’m splitting my wrap up into two sections. For this article, I’m focusing on the Toys and Collectibles. I’ll post our massive Cosplay gallery in the next day or so. If you’re here for that, check back soonly!

Someone told me this year’s SDCC felt muted compared to past ones he’s been to. I told him I felt more like someone turned the volume all the way up, but then unplugged the subwoofer. All the noise, crowd and aggressive fart clouds were there… but something else wasn’t. There’s no punch line or resolution to this paragraph’s setup.  I honestly can’t explain why I felt that way because I could never quite put my finger on it.
Maybe I’m just getting old or jaded… or both.

Most of the usual movie franchise-flaunting epic-ness was still in full effect, though the lack of Marvel popping off a big super hero movie to blow the doors off things with it’s mega star powered money machines was certainly noticeable. But we had freaking Star Wars! You simply can’t get bigger than that, can you? DC/Warner Bros had Batman V Superman which raised hope as well as expectations for many. Leaked trailers of the new Ryan Reynolds/Sony R rated Deadpool flick as well as the up-until-now-almost-universally-panned-as-going-to-be-awful Suicide Squad caused a huge stir.

At one point, whilst I roamed the floors, the cast of Game of Thrones caused people to amass in claustrophobic picture-taking panic when they sauntered onto the showroom floor for their scheduled signings. I was only able to snap a few before the swarm overtook me.

*REVIEW* The Secret Master by Devil Toys


Secret Master is the second major figure release from Devil Toys, as part of the “WOO: World of Order” storyline.

When the teaser images of this guy first popped up I was immediately pulled in. I loved the robotically enhanced military aspects of him. The design felt like some of the stuff I’d admired from various 3D artist who’s work I follow. It also reminded me a little of Acid Rain, only in ⅙ scale… and that’s a good thing.

*REVIEW* ThreeZero – Titanfall Stryder


I’m going to try and make this simple for everyone out there who are short on time or attention. Stryder is awesome. I wasn’t sure how he’d ever possibly be able to match up to the high standard that ThreeZero already set with Atlas but somehow, they pulled it off…. nearly as fantastically.

If all you’re waiting to hear is whether or not Threezero hit it out of the park before you decide to pull the trigger on the preorder going on right now at then I’d suggest you go ahead, draw your wallet and start popping off shots.

If you came here to read up on more of the nitty gritty of things, then well, stay put… you’ve come to the right place.

And if’n you prefer to sit back and have move’n pictures ‘n such spoon fed ye, then cool your heels and check out our video review below!

ed I: One thing of quick note, this is a review sample/prototype that ThreeZero provided for this review, so keep in mind that it’s possible that some features may change for the better (or worse) between now and the day they ship.

*ed II: I was informed of something I screwed up in this review.. The thing I’m calling a “turret” on the right side of his head, is actually facing the wrong direction and should be pointed with the skinny side back… in fact, may not be a “turret” at all. Try to ignore it if you can, if you can’t.. sorry!
