So it’s been a few months since SDCC and despite our best efforts, we had to wait all this time to actually go through and process/edit the hundreds of photos we took over the course of the event.
I could regale you with a long story about professional life/family life/LIFE life getting in the way of getting it done in a more timely manner.. but that’d probably bore you, if I haven’t already.
As always, the cosplayers really brought their A-game to SDCC this year. Walking the floor snapping shots of them are one of my favorite pastimes during the con. I’m astonished by the talent as well as the cajones often on display. Between SDCC and walking the beaches in Hawaii.. I’m constantly reminded that I need to put the donut down and hit the gym.
One day, I just might.
So! On to the shots. These are just a few of my favorites while the rest will be holed up in a massive album over on our Facebook page, so head over there to get the full run.
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.
Thanks for checking in! I hope you all enjoy the photos and if you see yourself or a friend, hit us up and we’ll credit ya! See everyone next year at SDCAM/TSYCSILFC 2016!
Thanks for reading and browsing the purty pictures everyone! Please check out and follow us onFacebook, Youtube, Twitter and Instagram for more toy news, reviews, photos and videos! Until next time, Aloha!
INTRO: The last two years I attended San Diego Comic Con, I carried on my iphone a virtual shopping list full of con exclusives and random merch I planned to hunt down and pay ridiculous amounts of money to obtain. I’d spend the lion’s share of my time at the con working my way back and forth across the show floor attempting to cross everything off it. I’d end up flying back home with two or three bags and a suitcase full of goodies, toys, comics, shirts and the general swag you collect over the grueling, yet enjoyable 4-5 day geek-fest.
This year however, I simplified. I had a single, solitary toy on my list. Just one. 1000Toys Synthetic Human Test Body which was being sold exclusively at the Bluefin booth. 1000Toys, for those not in the know, haven’t been cranking out figures very long. In fact, this is their first con exclusive and only their second figure to officially release. The first being the original Synthetic Human. I was excited and anxious to be a part of that relatively small group of people who could get their mitts on an awesome looking toy from a fairly young, promising company.
I can’t believe just a week ago I was taking my first strides into the belly of preview night at San Diego Comic Con 2014. As usual, there was an almost insurmountable amount of stuff to gawk at and photograph, incredible cosplay and more things I wanted to buy than what my wallet (and wife) would allow.
Here’s a handful of words about how the show treated me.
Toy wise, I actually left this year with relatively little packed away in my suitcase. I happily picked up the coveted 1000toys Prototype.. which was my #1 choice for toy exclusive this year. (Review to come) Honestly, the only other exclusive I really wanted I completely missed out on simply by virtue of failing to pick it up as soon as I walked in the door, Play Art Kai’s Metal Gear Solid Punished Snake. After seeing the full color version at Play Art’s booth, I wasn’t so bummed out as he looks a lot better painted up than the faux bronze job on the exclusive. I know I’ll be picking him up once he’s available at retail.
