    MegaCon 2004- Palisades Booth Pics

    Went to MegaCon yesterday and have pics from the Palisades Booth.
    The event was crowded- way crowded, so there wasn't a lot of room to move around. Palisades was giving away a large "golden gonzo idol" to a person who followed a map and got "stamped" at certain booths. For me, it was too crowded to do this. Adventure Kermit was sold out by 11am yesterday (glad they will be available through the club).

    I apologize for the quality of the pics. All of the figs were in little cases, so I couldn't use a flash. People were also tripping over me, so I had to grab as many as I could in as little time as I could. Overall, they are amazing--- especially the Sweetums Figure. He is big. Really big. Fantastic Detail. I will even say that I think he may end up being the BEST figure of the bunch to date.

    Movie Usher Scooter
    Dr. Phil VanNeuter
    Jim Henson Figure- blurry, but I have a link to a better pic that another guy who attended MegaCon took.
    Scooter & Dr. Phil VanNeuter - better than the 2 above pics.

    I tried to talk to the reps manning the booth, but they were getting drilled by a Transformer collector, so they were kinda concentrating on him.

    They also had the Ren & Stimpy figures on display. Love these as well.

    Oh- for you Lord of the Rings Fans- check this guy out.

    I'm pretty sure it was Scooter's old head. If it wasn't, I didn't notice.

    no sign of a Ghost Buster

    Fozzie-- forgot to mention, I didn't see a single Ghost Buster. Not a one. First time that I've been to MegaCon and didn't see one.

    There may have been one there and our paths never crossed, though.

    Oh plenty of action figures. I was talking about people dressed up. In the past, I've seen 4 or 5, but this time not a single one.

    You see one Storm Trooper, you've seen them all. Ghost Busters at these things have all kinds of variences in their equipment, which I think is pretty darn cool.

    At the local con here in Memphis, I'm going as Ghostbuster Williams alongside by buddy Lin as Beetlejuice, and if they let us on stage we're performing "Soul Man."

    Holy Hansel and Gretel!! That Sweetums action figure is the coolest thing I've seen for a long time!!! Well, since I saw the pictures of the backstage playset....I'm definitely putting Sweetums on my "GIVE ME PRESENTS!" list.

    Just got back from Wizard World LA. Scooter and Suggs look pretty cool. Suggs comes with a zylaphone (sp?) of little furry things (dont know what they are called, but I remember them from TMS). The Sweetums figure is way cool. Sam looks pretty cool, pretty big. The Henson puppet figure is so great. A definate must have.

    Just got back too. The Sam was big because he was at 110 percent I believe. They were selling sets of 4 of series seven. A random Johnny for each set. these were sold out by 11 a.m. Remember the con opened at 10 a.m. And just a hint, if you see the Johnnys(they should be hitting stores in a week or so) grab them, they are going fast.
