Moving on to part two of Thom being sad about missing Comic-Con and reviewing last years trip post-hostumasly. For Fridays Redux click Here!
When we last left off we had wrapped up Friday sometime around 2am outside the house of blues. Saturday dawns and I meet up with my dad at the train station and head back to the floor to pick up some swag that I saw going around. The crowds on Saturday were even worse than Fridays; my dad was absolutely blown away; missing more than one turn behind me because he was busy looking over his shoulder at some half naked floor model dressed up as a _________ trying to sell him something. But man, the freebies this year were pretty awesome if I do say so myself! DC was giving out a bunch of comics as well as a casino chip to Wayne Casino. There was a Twilight/3 Musketeer booth giving away twilight lightbulbs (not lit; b/c this last film is sooooo dark ‘bah’) and mini foam sponge like swords for three musketeers. Sony Online Entertainment was giving away some pretty sweet DCU Online lanyards and Joker masks. WB was giving away full sized nerf swords in the style of Thundercats Sword of Omens; didn’t even get close to one of those; you can find ‘em on ebay right now starting at $5.
2012 Redux: Three Musketeers was pretty aweful and Twilight continued to have Kristen Stewart; so you didn’t miss much there.
