Comic-Con 2011 - Friday: Geekocalypse

Here's the Friday roundup of Comic-Con activity including South Park, Kevin Smith, Nintendo, Real Steel and more!


San Diego on Friday, July 22, 2011 before the convention floor opened.

Dr. Who crossing.
Even the graffiti at Comic-Con is nerdy.

More Dr. Who. You can tell it's sci-fi because the show takes place in
some alternate universe where people actually use phone booths.
Disney princesses Snow White, Belle and Ariel.
These cosplayers were actually really, really nice and gracious like real princesses,
but I wished they wore the goofy hats like the ones in Kate and William's royal wedding.

A small Biggie Smalls. Wait, what? My head just exploded.

After the dinosaur sat on the stool, he busted out a prehistoric guitar
and sang a beautiful acoustic song. So sad he's extinct.

Art Asylum introduced its Femme Fatales line of Minimates featuring pirate Anne Bonny and Alice.

The Femme Fatales line also includes Little Red and Medusa.

Some of San Diego's pedicabs were geeked out for HBO's Game of Thrones.
You know the ride is over when they chop off your head.

A Ghostbuster and the Stay-Puft Marshmallow girl

GI Joe's Destro and the Baroness

More GI Joe cosplayers plus evil Lisa Loeb
Kevin Smith and a really big hockey jersey

Finally, a David Hasselhoff Minimate!
Art Asylum revealed that Series 4 of the Minimates vehicles would include Knight Rider's
Michael Knight and KITT and their evil twins, Garth and KARR.

This is what happens when you lose Celebrity Apprentice.Season 3 apprentice and WWE Diva Maria Kanellis made an appearance to sign autographs.

Dr. Doom

Captain Native American and Galacta

The motorcycle from the upcoming sequel Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance

Crossbones and Captain America Minimates

That's either Mystique or Bondage Smurf.
There's always confusion because the safe word is "Smurfy."

Phoenix and hot Phoenix

Thor and Scarlet Witch

Venom reacts to the $15 price tag for a burger, chips and Coke at the convention snack center.

Monster High's Frankie Stein

Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Nicholas Brendon

Nintendo hosted a game lounge in the Marriott next door to the convention center,
where fans could play a demo of the upcoming Zelda game,
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.

Nintendo commissioned a chalk artist to create a picture of Link and Epona from Ocarina of Time.

A robot from the upcoming movie, Real Steel,
AKA known as "The Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots Movie" or "Hugh Jackman's Cry for Help."

Shark Week starts on July 31, 2011. To celebrate, Discover Channel had scuba diver
cosplayers hit the floor with remote-controlled, inflatable sharks.
We're gonna need a bigger convention center.
Character balloons marked the spot for Comedy Central's
South Park village across from the convention center.
The Kenny balloon eventually burst into flames and suffered a horrific Hindenburg fate.

South Park fans could take part in photo ops, browse the art gallery,
create avatars and race in the tricycle Fan Prix.

Street Fighter vinyl figures

It's like Sophie's Choice for kids: Who to pose with before they walk away?
