Comic-Day 3: The Rise of Cobra

Saturday at Comic-Con...

G.I. Joe action figures reporting for duty.
Most of the Cobra infantry will be parachuting out of exploding aircraft in a few minutes.

G.I. Joe cosplayers.
Probably the best Destro outfit I've seen since most look like their faces are baked potatoes in tin foil.

2:11pm @pantsarama: Just met one of the coolest Stans at Comic-Con! Not Lee, but Stan Bush! You've heard his music in Boogie Nights, Transformers animated film

2:32pm @pantsarama: I saw a woman lifting up the shirt of an Edward Cullen display doll. The saddest part was actually the sighs from passersby.

2:47pm @pantsarama: Leonard Nimoy spotting at Comic-Con. In case you've been living in a cave, he's the director of "Three Men and a Baby."

The movie prop booth had skinned a Gizmo face from Gremlins. It had to be done.

A Boo Mario costume from Mario Galaxy.

2:53pm @pantsarama: Adam Baldwin signing on the floor now. You might know him from Chuck & Firefly, or as the Baldwin who's proud not to be a Baldwin brother.

BioShock toys

Puppet Master replicas

Wrestler Rob Van Dam

The LOST panel with Jorge Reyes, Michael Emerson, Carlton Cuse, Josh Holloway, Nestor Carbonell, Damon Lindelof, Dominic Monaghan

The masquerade party with a Venture Bros. cosplayer

Fanboy in da hood. Jawa pimp!

Comic-Day 2: Revenge of the Fallen

Friday at Comic-Con!

10:37am @pantsarama: There's a dude dressed as Skeletor at Comic-Con, but he's fat. It's one instance when "big-boned" could be accurate

I saw the real Stan Lee, but this dude's costume was pretty good. He's talking to the Silk Spectre. That character (both versions) was probably the most popular outfit at the show.

11:00am @pantsarama: Stan Lee just walked by and most Comic-Con kids didn't notice. It could be because he wasn't wearing his trademark Members Only jacket

Joseph Fiennes and John Cho at ABC's FlashForward panel. It's something about people blacking out, seeing flashes of their future and then ending up at White Castle.

1:01pm @pantsarama: Dominic Monaghan made a surprise appearance at ABC's Flash Forward panel. Penny from Lost is also on that show. I hope Nikki & Paulo aren't

Transformers in costume. Bumblebee is totally hot for that Coke fridge in the background.

Characters at the Bandai booth promoting Katamari Forever.

1:16pm @pantsarama: Fun fact: If you yell "Hey, nerd!" at Comic-Con, 10,000 people will flinch and crouch into the anti-wedgie defensive position.

1:49pm @pantsarama: Too soon? Click the link in a month then.

6:05pm @pantsarama: I met one of my fave artists @taramcpherson who signed&drew in her @darkhorsecomics book for me @comiconlive.I'm outta @ symbols for the day

Pan's Labyrinth maquette.

6:10pm @pantsarama: Ran into friends outside Comic-Con. They ignored me at 1st cuz they thought I was 1 of those annoying flyer people. Nope, I'm just annoying

Madame Tussaud's wax Wolverine statue made its debut at Comic-Con. Wax claws!

Comic-Day 1: Thursday and the Half-Blood Prince

Welcome to my Thursday coverage of Comic-Con, that nerdgasmic time of year in San Diego when thousands of people will go crazy if you shout out "Excelsior," "May the force be with you," "Team Edward," "Team Jacob," "Live long and prosper," "Free Corn Nuts" or "Look! Boobs!" I'll try to post photos and tweets from the show each day. And if you want to be annoyed by me in real time, follow me on Twitter right now!

Marvel Superhero Squad statues of Iron Man and Dr. Doom.

Upcoming Marvel characters to be added to the Superhero Squad series of toys.

10:19am @pantsarama: Is that Doritos, farts and Mountain Dew I smell? Then I must be at Comic-Con! I'll tweet updates until I find myself a slave Leia.

10:27am @pantsarama: San Diego Trading Co on 5th is giving away free GI Joe hats to press. Ugliest hats ever. Now you know, & knowing is half the battle.

10:35am @pantsarama: It seems the she-nerds at Comic-Con aren't used to my pheromones & are attracted to it. It's called "deodorant."

10:45am @pantsarama: Star Trek cologne. Smells kinda woodsy with a hint of mom's basement.

11:18am @pantsarama: If you wear a bikini to Comic-Con, guys will photograph you. As a red-blooded male, I guess I was asking for it by dressing that way

Cute version of Sora from Kingdom Hearts.

Batgirl as one of DC's Blammoids

He-Man prototype toys from Mattel.

Darth Vader's pimp helmet

3:22pm @pantsarama: I overheard someone talking about the "Dr. Parnassus" panel at Comic-Con debating whether Heath Ledger will show up. I really hope not

3:27pm @pantsarama: I saw David Faustino at the Sony booth. No, he didn't have a broom. He was signing autographs.

Coraline stop-motion figures from the movie.

Characters from the upcoming movie, 9

Toffee dolls from Huckleberry Toys.

3:30pm @pantsarama: Tyrese Gibson has a comic book and is signing them. I don't even need to make up a joke.

3:34pm @pantsarama: I'm in the looooong line for the Chowder and Flapjack panel. They're Cartoon Network shows not food, but now I'm hungry.

Slasher characters done up in the new style of Mez-Itz from Mezco.


Silver paint Tokidoki show exclusives
6:11pm @pantsarama: Ziggy & Family Circus are criminally underrepresented at Comic-Con. In honor of Ziggy, I'll be attending tomorrow without pants.

Star Wars Chubby Series 2, due out in November '09, will include Princess Leia, Ewok and bounty hunter nesting dolls.

Beverly Hills Cop Minimates. Finally, a Minimate with a tiny mustache and a big banana.

Iron Man movie props

Brian Cox and Lauren Lee Smith from Trick 'R Treat, due out on DVD and Blu-ray this October. Anna Paquin was a no-show since it was her birthday, but the director called her voice mail during the panel and had the audience sing to her. Harry Knowles moderated the panel. At first, I thought it was a dude in a Jabba the Hutt costume.

12:00am @pantsarama: Saw Comic-Con screening of "Trick 'R Treat," a horror anthology w/ Anna Paquin. Not bad.Scariest part was Harry Knowles moderating the panel

DC figures with disturbingly realistic looking faces. Kneecaps, not so realistic.

Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow movie costumes from the upcoming debacle, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, the Lowering of America's Standards

Seth Rogen's Black Beauty car from the upcoming Green Hornet

New Transformers Mighty Muggs: Optimus Prime with flame detail and Shockwave
