Fan Expo 2012 post-mortem

I attended this year's Fan Expo on Thursday and Friday, choosing to avoid the madness of the Saturday mob, which turned out to be a good idea based on the many reports of lengthy lines, overcrowding, and over selling tickets.

We lucked out on Thursday getting "Golden Tickets" at the Marvel Booth, which got us autographs from Stan "The Man" Lee at the 50th anniversary celebrations for Spider-Man.

The Lego booth was impressive with a lot of great Lego sculptures, but I do have to give a tip of the hat to the Mega Blocks booth. As my kids were building their creations, the attendant told them that they could keep whatever they built!

Another tip of the hat goes to all the wonderful costume players that were generous with their time and always happy to have a picture taken with you.

Neal Adams was a bit of a let down as he was charging $5 an autograph. If it was to raise money for a charity, I could understand, but felt a bit cheated, especially when I wanted to get a $60 Marvel Masterworks signed. 

Getting behind the wheel of Back To The Future's Delorian, for a $20 donation to charity, was a lot of fun!

And DC Comics did a great job with this comic book immersive photo-shopping.
