First up was the Pop Culture Shock booth. They didn’t have much on display, but this lifesize Akuma bust was definitely the centerpiece.

Triforce had a buttload of high end (i.e. super expensive) collectibles on hand. Pretty to look at, but insane to pay for unless you have lots and lots and lots of money.

























This Black Mask bust is just a prototype, thus the lack of paint, but even in its uncolored state, you can already tell it’s gonna’ be freaking awesome.









These Tetris pieces actually light up, but they couldn’t get a power supply running to the case for them. They light up when connected, and if you make a row, the lights flicker off just as if the pieces were dissappearing in the game!





Here’s a sneak peak at the Yes Anime! booth. They had some super rad stuff. Stay tuned for our exclusive video tour of their booth later in the week.




Ahhh, the Goodsmile booth. Always awesome. They had the Link Figma and Sonic the Hedgehog Nendoroid on sale, but by the time I decided to go buy them, they were all sold out. =( C’est la vie.



























In case you didn’t know, New York Comic Con is effing HUGE! So huge that I didn’t even know Square Enix had a booth until the last day, and by then everything was sold out and most of their cases were empty. Bummer.






















So, I took way more pics of the Bandai booth, but the files on my camera are corrupt, which completely sucks. They a plethora of amazingness like Gundam figures (I’ve barely watched that show even though we have a primer on how to watch that show and I bought three!), some sweet Sailor Moon Figma-esque things, Daft Punk stuff, Mega Man stuff, lots and lots of Power Rangers things, and I can’t even remember what else. You’ll just have to settle for these crummy cell phone pics.








That about wraps it up, kids. Hope you enjoyed oggling all these sexy bits of plastic as much as I did on the Comic Con show floor! My wallet is still feeling the sting, but it hurts so good!

A Little Bit on the Triforce Cutting Board Side: I enjoy cutting things. With a knife. I’m way too hardcore to use a cutting board, but for the sake of argument, if I were to buy one, it would probably be this one with a Triforce in it. It would give me the courage, power, and wisdom to cut, chop, and dice like no other.

Is there a word for necklaces like this that are meant to be worn backwards? Reverse necklaces? Backlaces?

Albotas Went to the Zelda Party: Part I

I freakin’ love NYC. There’s always something awesome to do. When we went to check out Rainbow City, we found out Nintendo World would be hosting a Zelda party the following day. The party was meant to celebrate the launch of the 3DS version of Ocarina of Time.

I was worried that I’d look like a kid-toucher, what with being a guy in his 20s at a Nintendo party. Luckily, the place was packed kids and adults alike (way over the fire limit, by the way). When we stepped into the store, we were handed a scavenger list of Skullturas scattered throughout the two stories. Some were surprisingly hard to find. After filling out the list, you could drop it into a treasure chest to enter a raffle for some Zelda merch.

There were some other cool Zelda-themed happenings, too. A handful of cardboard standees were placed here and there, replicas of the Master Shield, Deku Shield and potions were behind the bottom floor’s register, and a giant triforce stood on the top floor.

Places should do this more often. I got to shop and have a ton of adventurey fun. Be sure to come back tomorrow for Albotas Goes to the Zelda Party: Part II. We’ll have a video of the raffle up for your viewing pleasure. I’d post it right now but it’s taking forever to render.
