One of the coolest displays this year was the promotion of Tim Burton’s remake of his old classic Frankenweenie. The booth featured several scenes from the new movie which are shown in the old fashion stop motion type figures.

The next panel is something that is related to the very current release of The Expendables 2 and several of the big name stars showed up for the panel.

I did go and see the movie and it was pretty epic. It’s definitely not a good movie by any means, but the big wow factor is seeing all the great action stars that literally created that genre all in one movie is something worth seeing regardless of the lack of plot and anything beyond that explosions. The point of the movie is the watch them destroy everything and it was awesome.

One of the Q&A questioners were this pair of twins that had on some awesome shirts.

After a day at the con, we sat over at Embarcadero and caught the Legend of Zelda concert.

I don’t really watch Youtube that much so I have no idea who these people are. It was just nice to take a break and sit down for a while.

Apparently, this guy lives around San Diego because I know people who have spotted him driving around in his 5th generation Civic in downtown even after Comic Con.
