Oh yeh, the swag...

I was on a tight budget and a mission so this is what I picked up from Comic Con.

Aquaman! COOL!

is that vintage Stormtrooper really vintage or remake? By hasbro or Kenner?

chunky B said...

@ Wings - Oh Yeah Aquaman!

@LEon - It's from Gentle Giant (With cooperation from Hasbro, who bought Kenner). They took vintage 3-3/4" SW Action figures and scanned them and made them 12". This was one of their show exclusives, on the Empire card, this year. I think they may re-release it in different packaging later on. the SW Celebration is supposed to have the Boba Fett version.

Nice dollies.

LOVE the large Storm Trooper. A store here in NYC brought one back (and jacked up the price, natch) so I had a chance to take a closer look. It's a great toy. I think a collection of them would be fantastic. Expensive, but fantastic...

Maybe I'll shell out for the R2.

Nice pick ups!

Looks like you had a blast. Makes me want to go again, its been a long time. Jealous of the Aqua figures!

@ Bubbashelby - Laugh it up, oh wait don't you have a dolly with green panties?

@ Doc Atomic - I don't think I will be in for the whole line, price and space to display. That said, since Stormtroopers are somewhat a focas for me, I knew this would be my one special buy. I think R2 is going to be a nice one as well.

@ jboypacman - Thanks! I think I did well with the budget I had going into the show.

@ rob! - I did have a pretty good time, it would have been a lot more fun if I had a few more friends that went, maybe next time. Oh and of course I had to pick up Aquaman, I was pretty excited to see someone selling him. Next is Black Manta!

Brock Samson! Awesome!! Did they have Dr. Girlfriend?

chunky B said...

Darrin they didn't have her for sale at the show, but she was on display with the future releases. I shot some pics of all the Venture Bros. figures in this post...

What is in the Lost artifacts book?

chunky B said...

It's a freebie they were handing out, it's a preview of one of those visual encyclopedias, I believe it's by DK Publishing. Sort of like those Star Wars ones that have photos of props with all the details labeled and info about them set in that universe. I guess it was to promote the release of the Lost version of one of those books and the DVD collection.

Are you a "Lostie"?

Brian B said...

Yes I am a Lostie.

Though I must say I was majorly disappointed in the ending.
There is supposed to be bonus stuff on the DVD showing Hugo and Ben running the island. I saw a leaked portion of it yesterday.

Nice grab of the freebie.
