Card lock waht the f does that mean?............................oh.
Alright so as you cen see, my memory card was "locked" and it wasn't until I got home and loked in the instructions that I figureed out what it meant. Boy do I feel dumb. So no pictures today Sorry guys....
But the re-cap the second day at the con, for those of you that are living vicariously though this post here's the scoop:
Got their early in the morning to wait in line, finally got through after 2 and half hours (ick) and ran over to the Hasbro Booth only to discover that they had already given away all of the tickets for the day. Getting a ticket only entitles you to stand in line, not actually buy a figure. Nuts to that I said, and started asking people in line if they A. were already getting three stan lees(the limit person) and B. if they wanted to make 5 bucks.
As luck would have it there are some decent people left in the world, and I managed to score 2 at 20 a piece. This was after repeated people were extra rude about saying no.
*bonus story!* As I was waiting for the saint of a fellow to purchase my Stan, who walks by me? None other than Peter Mayhew! Got to shake his hand before ever one recognized and swarmed him. Whatta guy.
So after I got my stan's I hoofed it around the rest of the exhibit hall. The toy selection was alright....somethings were waaaaaayyyyyyy over priced. For example: War Machine V Manderin had a sticker price of 75 bucks!!! Legendary comicbook heros were going for 20-25 per fig.
So needless to say, I didn't do much toy shopping. I did however buy some orginal artwork from some artists and got a bunch of autographs. From whom you ask? Lou Ferigno, Garret Wang (Ensign Kim) Jon DeLancie (Q) Tony Todd(Candyman) and Ken Foree from dawn of the dead.
oh here's a link to some pcis, since I can't provide them.... http://www.fwooshnet.com/pics/index.php?cat=207
