San Diego Comic Con 2011: Part Five
This is the final post for Comic Con 2011.
Big displays for MIB 3. I’ve always found the MIB franchise enjoyable, so I’m looking forward to this new installment.
I guess they are making another Ghost Rider even though the first was such a let down. Nicholas Cage again. I never really liked Nicholas Cage in movies, but I’ve always like his movies. Weird.
One of the few things I was seriously contemplating of buying. I already have a sizable Mighty Mugg collection, so this caught my eye.
A very huggable Chewie plush
Couple of interesting games coming out like Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom, Saints Row The Third, and Spiderman Edge of Time.
Ran into Deadmau5 again. Can’t get enough of that wicked work.
Incredibly detailed Rivendell model
Pokemon booth was pretty weak this year. No more iconic giant Pikachu ballon, no free inflated Pokeballs, and it looks like Pikachu lost some weight this year.
Pretty good from behind, from front not as good
Some food at Nordstrom’s Cafe
At the parking lot in Horton Plaza, Adult Swim Ben & Jerry trucks giving out ice cream.
Screening a movie called “Drive”. Surprisingly decent besides the unrealistic car chase scene. Being a car guy, I’m positive a 2010 Mustang GT would slaughter a 300C (even if it were a STR8). Out power and out handle.
Adorable Doremon cosplay
Sami with the Angry Bird guy
A couple of Ferraris around that night.
The Total Recall display looked much better at night
This was only available on Thursday and Friday, but they did have free drinks (including beer and wine) and free food.
Prime Rib Fridays at the Boathouse
Highly recommended. Nice local place. I’d choose Vegas any day from prime rib.
Back to Horton Plaza
For $6 you could buy one of these at Comic Con, but for the same price more or less, you could spend 30 minutes with four people trying to win it in a claw machine.
Obsessing over Totoro shoes at the Sanrio store…
Beautiful crepes at California Crepes
At the Marriott
Hooters was giving out free appetizers
Ending Comic Con 2011
Afterwards we headed over to Yakitori Yakyudori
Matt got a…Melon…cream…something. I forgot what its called. He said they made a decent one.
Almond Milk Tea at Tea Station
Strawberry? Something red…
Trying some of their snacks…they are…not that great.
Ended with a couple rounds of Big 2. That concludes Comic Con 2011.
