ADMIN_ROCK: Well, finally dragged myself to the laptop, and I’m here to provide an update for Friday. Let’s see…. waited in line, walked a few feet, waited in line some more. Apart from that, I scored a couple of pretty sweet Lego minifigs (Phoenix and Captain Marvel), met JMS and had him sign the best panel he’s ever written (the “reveal” moment with Ezekiel), and moments later had a really short conversation with Jim Lee about my Lego Mosaic. Verdict: “Yeah, great, that’s really nice”. (“Keep moving, fanboy”). CubReporterK and I went to a panel on Justice League and what lies ahead, and Thursday I also went to a “Court Of Owls” panel which had some cool stuff on the future of Batman. Also visited the Revolution area, NBC is really pushing this show! Then back to the Lego booth for a while, where Gene Simmons waltzed through.
Basically, one moment, all was normal, the next, four giant bodyguards flanking the very tall man walk through, and the booth is swarmed with people taking pics, etc. I was standing at the opposite side of a long table, a bit removed from the madness. Waited until he turned, and snapped a pic. Eventually, he moved on, and everything calmed down.
All in all, Friday was great, though CubReporterK had a bad dream, and I had to rub his back until he went back to sleep.
