NY Comic Con Thoughts Part 1

The Con is over and another glorious geekfest is done, it was sure tiring but as always a ton of fun. Comics, cosplay and enough toys to deplete your funds in a day doesn't sounds bad eh? I'm sure many folks went home happy as hell with their bags of awesome exclusives, nostalgia triggered purchases and new artists they became fans of. I managed to find a new book to read and got Lil Giant into G-Man as well, I didn't buy any new figures cause... well I got no more room left for figures right now haha. Hope you enjoy the photos as much as we had fun taking them and being a part of NYCC once again was fantastic. We have a good amount of photos so I'll be breaking this up into a few posts so one post doesn't weigh as much as the Power Pachyderms. They will be varied and jumbled up just like the floor in the Con. For those that have never been to one, I strongly urge you to go if you love comics, figures, art and geek culture as a whole. It's a little crowded but worth every half step you take in 5 minutes haha.

WGM: New York Comic Con Part 3

We got some greats popping up on Part 3 of our NY Comic Con figure coverage, Spiderman, Superman, Spawn and The Ghostbusters along with The Flash Gundam and a Giant Ugly Doll. Not sure what's going on with that Flash (I Don't follow it) but it's looking kinda funky there, I kinda like it but that MPH looking emblem is def weird. Superman is doning his 'New 52' costume and I'm digging it some, the cape coming out of the outfit is way better and I don't mind the V-shaped wrists as much as I thought, although he does look slightly more asian (Oh Jim Lee...) than what we are all used to. The Gundam figures are looking sharp as hell and make me want to buy them then stack 'em up in this assembly-looking lineup. Spawn is looking awesome in that figure with his iconic cape craziness, and they got Spiderman chilling as usual while the minis battle Venom and Lizard. A childhood favorite of mines stay relevant somehow in this digital age, The Ghostbusters have what it takes to move from one generation to another as proven with the release of these figures in 2011, oh yeah VIGOOOOO the Carpathian!     

WGM: New York Comic Con Part 2

Round 2 is up and while short and sweet, you will recognize all these characters as they are giants in their world. From Street Fighter, Metal Gear Solid's Snake and the X-Men universe to even Darth himself, the toy companies are presenting a strong and fantastic lineup this year. It also seems that they are starting to take the right steps towards presentation when it comes to creating scenes and engaging the product in their enviornment (theonecam way) so pat on the back for that, I was tired of looking at the cold poses and gradient or white backgrounds. Also Transformers as usual make their appearance with Bumblebee opening it's hood for all and the new toon'formers(kinda meh) Prime standing tall. Enjoy! By the way see that NYCC exclusive green/red Hulk? Yeah we got em hehe.
