Nights of Wonder...Con! Part II: The Annihilation

San Diego Comic-Con is nearly here (Does the Leonardo dance)!  Tomorrow, Preview Night kicks off the 44th annual Mecca of creative arts and popular culture.  2012's show spoiled me with Jackie Chan, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Dolph Lundgren, Michael Biehn, Thomas Jane and Michael Jai White among many more appearing on panels and the show floor.  Superstar artist Jim Lee cut me off as I entered a room for a panel about himself!

The last big show was SDCC's sister show, Wonder Con, held in Anaheim in March.  Among random swag, I picked up some dusty LaserDiscs for a buck each, the vinyl sized sleeves make for great decorations.  Also on display is a figure of Dutch Schaeffer, Arnold from Predator, complete with The Austrian Oak's likeness!  This year I'm on the hunt for the new figures of Hicks (Michael Biehn of this post's fame) and Hudson (Bill "The Vette gets'em wet" Paxton) from Aliens.

Let's party like the weirdcoolest guy on the planet:
