San Diego Comic-Con
Day 2 started out much the same as day one. We headed over to the San Diego Convention Center early, playing Pokemon Go along the way. Friday’s crowds were bigger than Thursday, yet more organized than previous years.
Set four decades after the great war on Earth, the Autobots and Decepticons have disbanded and returned to Cybertron. With the days of Optimus Prime and Megatron over, Cybertron is now ruled by a triumvirate. However, an ancient technology has enabled a new threat, the power for multiple Transformers to combine into one massive, dangerous form: Combiners.
Eric Calderon (“Afro Samurai”) serves as executive producer with George Krstic (“Star Wars: The Clone Wars”) as Head Writer and FJ Desanto as a series writer. Also today, the voice cast for the series has been announced:

It’s that time of year again. No, not Christmas. Well not for some. But time for San Diego Comic Con. The biggest convention of the year is upon us once again.
SDCC is always a love/hate relationship. While I enjoy seeing all the amazing exclusives and grand booth displays on the floor, I am not a big fan of crazed crowds and long waits in line. This year was no exception.
The convention floor was filled with some really amazing statues and toys and displays. While I did not have a chance to see everything (the floor was only open for 3 hrs) I did my best to take pictures of what I could see. I also managed to be able to run around to some of my favorite booths and grab some of the exclusives.
For me, my favorite part of SDCC is the Annual Forbidden Panel Dinner at the Gaslamp Strip Club (think steaks). I was not let down this year. Joined by some good friends and fans, I had a blast.
Here are some of the photos I did manage to take today. While I will not be able to attend Fri-Sun, I will be on the floor again tomorrow. Hopefully, I can snap more pictures at that time. To see what pics I will be taking, please head over to our Instgram page and follow our adventures as they happen. Also, check back here on Tuesday as we release the latest episode of the PanelCast with our detailed run-down of our hijinks at SDCC
We are now two weeks into June and for most of us in the SoCal region, this means one thing; San Diego Comic-Con is coming!
We are gathering our costume pieces and working out the final kinks in our uniforms, robes, warrior garb, prosthetic and various other attachments we will be sporting for the 4 days of insanity. In just about one month, the San Diego Convention Center will erupt in an H-Bomb of geekery. Chaos will flood the streets in the form of zombies, mages, elves, Uruk-hai, inhabitants of Krypton and everyone from Rainbow Bright to Batman will be there. There will be Wonder Women and Phoenix’s, Catwomen and every rendition of Harley Quinn oozing out of every street lamp in the Gaslamp District and more skin than should be legal in a public place, all in the name of costuming and the love of geek culture.
