    Back from Wizard World Chicago, this was my second one but my first one with a working camera. Unfortunately I didn't see as many costumed folk as I saw back in 2003, but it was still a fun time. Here is what I came home with:

    Finally snagged a Decepticon symbol shirt, I couldn't believe I never bought a TF shirt with just a faction logo on it. I would have bought the Autobot one but I was diggin that Mario shirt so that's what came home with me.

    I haven't really read anything Marvel since before that whole Spider-clone garbage that drove me out of comics in the first place. I have just recently gotten back into them with Civil War, so I picked up a couple of trades that I missed in interim.

    Civil War #1 signed by Joe Quesada

    Civil War Frontline #1 (WWC Sketch Cover edition) signed by Joe Quesada

    Some free swag including the Iron Man poster, a Gojira DVD release promo poster and a Godzilla animated DVD I won at the Gojira booth

    Finally picked up this boxed set for something around 13 bucks

    Got these little Mario PVCs, a Mario Kart figre (that rolls around), and some free Green Lantern minimate figure

    Never seen this one before, and since I am a Sweedish Chef fan I had to have it!

    [​IMG]
    The full set of Stargate Sg1 series 1 figures

    [​IMG]
    Dainel Jackson Pre Production Wizard World exclusive and the Kurt Cobain figure

    [​IMG]
    The exclusive Captain Kirk in captains chair from "Where No Man Has Gone Before" and Mirror Universe Uhura

    And now...my bank account is screaming in pain.

    Well I'll be damned. You know you were probably in the same line as me for Quesada. Why didn't you get Frontline signed by Jenkins and Turner? Well besides that Turner had a 3 hour wait time of course.

    Shaun_C - Yes, I am half...which makes me more of that then anything else, so I tend to take some pride in it...That and the other half is mostly Irish with a mess of other crap thrown in.

    Twin Twist - I tend to agree. But I saw it and lost all control and then next thing I knew I was handing money to the merchant for this figure.

    Wreckgar - I know Quesada had multiple appearances, but the time I saw him was right before the Smith panel and Jenkins and Turner weren't with him that time. And unfortunately that was the only time I had to get signatures :(  Next year I will definitely have to be more prepared.

    CC - Thanks man...That is also one of my favorite scenes, so picking this one up for so cheap was awesome. My bank account thanks you for your condolances, I will bounce back shortly...another paycheck is on the horizon!

    Thanks again all for looking and your comments! :D 

    Lio, Ambush, Josh, C1 - Thanks! :D
