The Wrath of Screaming Tiki Con October 20, 2008

Posted by vorpalkeith in Life The Universe and Everything.

And, no, I’m not talking about the buffet food I ate for lunch . . .

Man, there’s so much to talk about with cons that it’s just unintelligable.  I’m going to try to do bullet points for any of this to make any sense.  Yeah, that’s the ticket.

– Spent way too much money.  But so worth it . . . I picked up those NECA Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles figures based on the original comic designs.  They’re friggin’ awesome.  I also added three new figures to my collection of Ralph McQuarrie concept Star Wars figs.  Got four more quick sketches from Art Balthasar for my collection: Alan Scott Green Lantern, Jay Garrick Flash, Hourman, and Dr. Midnight.

– Met Adam West.  He was a gracious gentleman.

– Met Jeremy Bulloch (aka Boba Fett).  Fantastically nice guy and hilarious!

– Met Peter Mayhew (aka Chewbacca).  Another fantastically nice guy and also hilarious. 

– Went to a party after the con with some of the costuming organizations.  Saw this really, incredibly, ridiculously beautiful redheaded girl dancing.  Art Balthasar was there too.  But . . . what’s more . . . so was Peter Mayhew!!!  True to life I was at a party with Chewbacca, sitting across the table from him, having a conversation while he sipped his beer. 

That, my friends, is proof that life is awesome.
