Destiny is a game released worldwide by Bungie games. It is very much in the vein of Halo and Planetside and Killzone, Destiny is a Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG) First Person Shooter (FPS). You grind, you level, you collect and upgrade gear. You enjoy doing all of this with friends and strangers as you take on the various challenges set forth by the original story, the available player versus player (PvP) matches, and the unique challenges presented by strikes and raids.

As Bungie describes it, Destiny is, “From the Creators of Halo and the company that brought you Call of Duty. In Destiny you are a Guardian of the last city on Earth, able to wield incredible power. Explore the ancient ruins of our solar system, from the red dunes of Mars to the lush jungles of Venus. Defeat Earth’s enemies. Reclaim all that we have lost. Become legend.”

Back in January, Funko announced a collaboration with Marvel to provide a subscription based service featuring exclusive Marvel collectibles. It took me all of maybe five minutes after hearing about this and checking out the details for myself to have a “Shut-up-and-take-my-money” moment. I immediately signed up for the service as a member of the Founders Program. And, to my complete surprise, I returned home to my first box of the six included in my twelve month subscription.

To be honest for Adam and myself (Andrea), Star Wars week started for us Tuesday night at the Dodgers Baseball game. The stadium was invaded with Jedi, Storm Troopers and Darth Vader. They even gave out free T-shirts to commemorate the night.

So, now, onward to the first day of Star Wars Celebration and our further adventures into geekdom!

First things first;

This place was in chaos this morning!  There were lines for panels, lines for registration and more lines to get to the exhibit hall.

People, aliens, Storm Troopers and “Slave Leias” were every where.

As you can see, it would have been hard for anyone to miss “the droids they were looking for”.

Once we got inside to the exhibit hall, it was sensory overload. There were booths for taking pictures in your favorite Star Wars Scene to buying your favorite toys, so much to see and so much to do it was hard to decide where to truly begin.

I will be posting updates and photos here throughout the four day experience as we wander, explore, see all we can see and do all we can do.  It will be an exhausting amazing adventure and we will bring it all to you from our point of view!

More to come later…

“STAR WARS FANS BEING ASKED TO TEST JEDI KNOWLEDGE AGAINST THE FORMIDABLE 20Q ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE! GO TO  http://starwars.20q.net/play  AND PLAY!!!

unnamed

Uncle Milton, creator of the innovative Star Wars™ Science brand of toys, is getting ready to challenge aspiring Jedi in a different way. This time, Uncle Milton will be bringing the popular artificial intelligence game of knowledge, 20Q®, into the world of Star Wars with the Jedi Holocron.

I will also be stopping by their booth during Star Wars Celebration 2015 to talk to them about this exciting new product.  I will post updates, interviews and photos, too!

Registration Waiting Room Banner

 

May the speed of The Flash be with your router

And it’s strength of connection be as the Bifrost bridge

May the powers of Longshot and Domino be with you

That the powers of probability be shifted to you

May the Goblin King reorder time

That the wait with the spinning blue circle not lull you into madness

May your workspace be as Mars to Dr, Manhattan

And your mind by as Jean Gray’s to keep everyone away

May the stars align, the distractions fade, the children stay quiet and the animals be calm

May the phone stay silent and the workload blessedly grind to a halt

May you see the worlds “Congratulations”! And leave the “We’re Sorry” for another

Blessed is the power of the Epic Waiting Room

May it’s favor shine upon you and give you all you desire

Amen
