OK, I forgot 2 thinks, first my camcorder. Yeah, I know . Secondly, I forgot to ask about the process of designing a figure. I'll see what I can do about the later.
But I got to talk wtih the Hasbro, it was a bit inspiring. I'll have a full review later, but I got to start getting ready for the con, there is a lot of programing going on all the time, plus I'm running an Attacktix tournament Today and Tomorrow. Lots of stuff to do. But the long and short of it is that Hasbro is excited about the project, they want to spend some time on it getting it right.
Let's remember that when Attacktix was origionally released it was riding on SW Episode 3 in theaters. Now we need to have a product that can stand up on its own.
So they are taking their time, they are getting it right, and they want the product.
They want the product. I was talking to one of the Hasbro guys, just shooting the breeze. I mentioned that I liked Attacktix and he opened up the first few buttons of his button up Hasbro t-shirt to reveal an Attacktix shirt. They want the product. It's like GI Joe, it is becoming part of thier company history.
Anyway, expect a written interview from me later. Good things are coming.
Good to hear Russell. Wish we could've met up.
The whole con for me was hectic as hell. Never really got a chance to talk to anyone at Hasbro.
I do have pics but majority of it is non Hasbro if you guys are interested let me know and I'll post them.
Yeah Bumblebee was a costume. I imagine if you did a video search you cold find him and many others at the Comic-con Masquerade competition.
Duff Man was great, so were a lot of other costumes around. One of my favorite things to do after the convention is look o-line or at shows I tapes about the convention (G4 Network) to see all the people and thinks I missed at the event. With 15,000 people there, it is hard to see everything.
