I checked it out yesterday. Not of much use to me except for the Walk of Fame,
where I saw some tv/movie stars - most of
which seemed very gracious and genuine. The robotics track didn't look that
outstanding to me ... but I am very
critical. Didn't see any bot battles, but I'm sure that would have been fun. You
had to criss-cross between about 4
different hotels, each of which had several different floors for various
workshops, etc. I prefer a bigger convention
center like World Congress Center, etc.
I almost ran into (General Hammond) Don Davis (literally) on my way out when he
was arriving at the hotel. Other faces I
saw there were Kevin Sorbo (Andromeda). I just missed Brandy Ledford (Doyle from
Andromeda) --- damn! Summer Glau (River
Tam) from Serenity was there and is drop dead gorgeous! Saw 2 of the original
Catwoman stars, George Romero, etc. ...
and a whole bunch of goth cultish comic art celebs that I have no idea who they
were . If you're into that stuff then
this show is probably a blast.
There were quite a few fans in full blown Star Gate SG1 & Star Wars costumes.
Saw a pretty good C3P0 costume. Including
the actor who played him in the movies. Also the actors who played Chewbaca &
Darth Vader. Those were all in the Walk of
Fame. The rest of the place was dedicated to D&G type stuff, anime, funly goth
art & music. I'll probably try again next
year but on a Saturday and I will register online. The walk-up registration
line took almost an hour, and that was on
Friday afternoon. I'll bet Saturday is a nightmare ! Guess I'm just an old fuddy
Jest my 1.5 cents worth !
