Wow things have been busy around here lately! Can you believe that we are a little over a week away from SDCC. Are you ready? Unfortunately, we won’t be attending this year, but we look forward to all of the exciting news to come!
For JMD Retail, this is our first summer showing at cons, and it has been so much fun! (Check out our photos on our Facebook page.) If you’re in Central FL, you may have seen us at Tampa Bay Comic Con, Orlando Comic Expo, Orlando Toy and Comic Con, or Ocala Comic Con! We have met a lot of cool people, and really enjoyed the whole thing so far. Some people have asked where else we will be. In August, you can find us at Fanboy Expo and Tampa Bay Comic Con again! Tampa was crazy for the spring show (see our previous post about the mayhem, if you missed it) and it should be even better this time with the new venue and great guest list.
What is the best con that you’ve attended? What makes for a memorable con experience? Do you have a crazy con story? We’d love to hear about it!
So with SDCC 2012 coming to an end, what did you find to be the most exciting? I know I caught some coverage on SpikeTV. I saw a short interview with Jim Lee that I found to be interesting. It looked like there was a lot of excitement at the event–I still wish I could have made it. Of all the news that came out, though, I think I am most interested in the New 52 ArtFX statues by Kotobukiya. Assuming that I like the pose, I tend to like statues a little more than the action figures, and the Superman and Green Lantern ArtFX were really neat. I’ve been happy with most of the Kotobukiya pieces that we’ve gotten recently, and I’m really looking forward to where they go with this new DC line. What news did you find most interesting this year, and what new figures/statues are you looking forward to?
So with San Diego Comic Con 2012 starting, it makes me realize how much I need to make it out to SDCC one of these years. I’ve been to local comic cons, traveled to national music festivals, and even got to go to the New York Toy Fair. Somehow I’ve never gotten a trip to San Diego coordinated during SDCC. I can imagine seeing all the diehard fans, costumes, comic companies, and the special guests–not to mention the exclusive action figures and statues… This is a place that I’ve got to make it to next year. SDCC ’13 look out. Do you have any good SDCC stories? We’d love to hear them!
