taking pics inside the cybertron con 2012 convention grounds

After a bit of having fun outside the con grounds, and a short queue, we finally made our way in! Optimus saw a big paingint of himself on the wall and went straight there to take a picture.

Teehee, he has his name tattooed across his chest. Optimus, you're so silly sometimes.

"Whooooa! Check out the 22-foot tall Optimus Prime behind us with the shining optics! He's freakin' huge! "

And that was it for my little buddies. They got a little exhausted and didn't really want to head off on their own as the crowds were swelling so they just hid in my bag for the rest of the day.

I wonder where Cybertron Con will be next year?

toy showcase: kre-o microchangers combiners - constructicon devastator

I *love* the Kre-O microchangers series. And when they came out with 4 packs of combiner/gestalt goodness? I had to rush to the nearest Toys R Us the moment there was confirmed sighting of their stock arrival.Now, I understand that there are Transformers fans out there who are rather disappointed with this series - they'd rather see more awesome bots and figures being produced by Hasbro. I am not against them, cooler bot toys would be awesome, too. But I do love me some Lego minifig-style bots. They're easy to play with and bring around and take silly pictures with!There are a total of 4 different Combiner packs so far: Decepticon Bruticus, Constructicon Devastator, Predaking, and Superion.

But I like my movie munchies, so there. :P Anyway, about that projector pen -- I thought it would just be a random pen with a flashlight on one end, and the writing tip on the either, except that since this is a TDKR promo, it would have a Batman logo on the side.When I got home and tried the flashlight out, it projected a Dark Knight Rises Bat logo! Freaking awesome! I now have a personal mini bat signal. :D Woot!Batman and Robin were more than willing to pose with the new toy.Here’s Batman with a solo, err, trio shot of bats.Even Catwoman wanted in on the action. Something about black also being her color, and loving shadows and being adaptable. Yeah, something like that.She actually wanted her close-up picture featured instead, but she was in a frantic hurr…
