I am not going to San Diego Comic-Con this year. No benevolent benefactor came forward to donate the hundreds of dollars it would cost to fly out to California and stay at a hotel for the weekend. So sad. BUT I did live the geek dream 4 years ago and managed to attend in 2010. And, of course, I came home with a bag of goodies! Some more random than others, but I love them all.
Totally an impulse purchase because LOOK HOW CUTE! It was hard to resist the Polly Pocket girls dressed up as Batgirl, Supergirl, and Wonder Woman. Plus, I have a soft spot for Supergirl since when I was a little kid I liked to dress up in my Superman pajamas and run around the backyard being Super Sam! I think this was my favorite purchase of the whole trip.
BATMAN! Another random purchase as I wandered the hall on the last day. Arkham Asylum is one of the best superhero video games and I think I had just completed it before I went to SDCC so battle-damaged Batman seemed like a good purchase. It is pretty cool having Batman watch over me from my bookshelf…
This one was a goal, I knew there would be Doctor Who exclusives and this was the height of my Doctor Who fandom. I also bought a regular Doctor Who figure which I carried around with me in my purse for a few days after.
I had no played Bioshock 2 to completion yet and this figure was a little spoilerific. Honestly, not my favorite of the Bioshock games but still solid.
