San Diego Comic Con 2017 – Thursday – Pictures July 21, 2017 July 21, 2017 By kniuk Leave a Comment on San Diego Comic Con 2017 – Thursday – Pictures I attended the San Diego Comic Con 2017 on Friday July 20th. The day went by quick, but I met the 14x WWF (WWE) Champion and Hall of Famer, The Nature Boy Ric Flair. Wooooo! This is day 1 of my 2 day adventure. I had to park .7 miles from the convention and walk past hobo’s because parking was impossible to find. A half hour of looking and $40 later, I found this spot. I took a picture so I didn’t lose my vehicle in a busy city. Nintendo had a spot on the convention floor. Hey – it’s the head of Robert Downey Jr. Because why not? This full sized Iron Man was badass. On display at SDCC 2017. Why so serious? Swamp Thing is awesome and you can see the massive swamp of people behind it. A giant wall of wrestlers at the WWE booth. I would love a collection of this size, but then my wife would probably divorce me. AMC’s The Walking Dead never fails to disappoint with their massive and over the top booth displays. The Boba Fett 51-30 watch I was very tempted to purchase. My Little Pony the Movie seems to have some sort of underwater theme to it. Lunch time coconut Margarita at the Tequila Bar at the Marriott – directly adjacent to the convention center. No big deal, just KNIUK sitting next to the 14x WWE Champion, The Stylin’, profilin’, limousine riding, jet flying, kiss-stealing, wheelin’ n’ dealin’ son of a gun! Ric Flair himself. I’m rocking out with a WWE Fanny Pack over my shoulder. They had the brand new Super Mario Odyssey available to play. This game looks awesome! Just a picture of me in the Sails area. Go Go Power Rangers – this is a life sized Red Ranger from the 2017 Power Rangers Movie. The OG Power Rangers Red Ranger bust. The Green Ranger was always my favorite. Tommy with the dagger. The Batmobile from the Justice League movie. I cold drive it as long as it was automatic transmission. My meet and greet with Mark Hamill…in Lego form. It’s the little things that amuse me. Previous years it was always an issue with crowds walking in front of busses (and terrorist running people over in Europe recently) that main road area is now blocked off with a cool metal gateway the police control so only authorized people are allowed to enter at specific times. Comic Con Exclusive buildings outside the Convention Center. The Tick had some pretty neat advertising and Illuminati Symbolism on a building across the street. A giant pug. I think this tv show (Marvel Inhumans) sounds stupid, but I’m a fan of giant dogs. Person for scale. This worker had the audacity to say I wasn’t allowed to take a picture of the giant dog, which was at a public area outside. I took a picture of her and posted it on the internet as an act of defiance. SHAME. SHAME. My last photo before arriving at my car was this upscale fancy water fountain in San Diego near the Plaza. Picked up this Back to the Future onesie. Hope I fit into it… I’ll be back on Saturday!
