Destroy All Podcasts DX Episode 247 - San Diego Comic-Con 2012 (Or How I Spent My Summer Vacation)
Hosts: D'Arcy, Jeremy, Zuey (barely)
This is about dressing up like Totoro, Optimus Prime's butt, and coveting Batmobiles.
Many many many pics after the cut. Bonus: Rad stuff from our trips to the San Diego Zoo and the San Diego Natural History Museum.
Edit: Updated with sweet comics by D'Arcy about the trip!
The statues are neat but eh, I prefer toys.
The spacesuit prop is SO COOL.
I always secretly liked allosaurus better than tyrannosaurus rex, probably becase allosaurus has arms that look less stupid and three fingers.
Paging Matt Alt! It's a dinosaur cutaway!
But hey, nothing wrong with a good t. rex at the end of the day, is there?
Audrey II is a cutie.
Hey kid, no weapons!
Spinning bird kick!
Hmm, I'm noticing a theme here.
"You're our best and only friend!"
"Moon prism power, make-up!"
"Mrs. Monroe showed me where the salon's going to be. And then she showed me the back room where she took all of her clothes off."
Even Elmo takes a break now and again.
She's SUPPOSED to be crawling with bugs.
"Peace is nothing but a result of war."
The World War I Flying Ace is shilling at Comic-Con!
Okay, that's just cute.
"Let the wild rumpus start!"
"We've been going about this all wrong. This Mr. Stay Puft's okay! He's a sailor, he's in New York; we get this guy laid, we won't have any trouble!"
Probably my favorite costume of the con.
The Combaticons are WARRING! Onslaught is ROARING! He is one metamorphing DUDEICUS! They all combine and kick Superion's behind as the big bad battling BRUTICUS!
The new Grimlock toy from the upcoming Transformers: Fall of Cybertron video game looks rad.
I'm also into this Ultra Magnus from the same game.
Oh wow, they decided to make a big, nice Wheelie toy? WHY?
Boy, these kids sure are impressed by these Transformers Lego ripoffs.
Aww, a baby mammoth!
D'Arcy is not a spider-rider.
Look out, D'Arcy!
I can't believe I am jealous of a gorilla.
NO WORRIES. DEAD GORILLA'S FLESH IS GETTING EATEN BY BEETLES.
Oh crap, that's a really big shark.
I never realized snakes could actually do this. I thought it was something The Jungle Book made up.
Sexist, erm, I mean sexy statues!
Jem & The Holograms!
My Little Pony!
Guess what's finally coming out here?
I am so excited about this. It's a diecast version of the original Megazord/Daijyujin or rather the Vehicle Zord System Dino Megazord from 2010. Remember that even the original Japanese Daijyujin toy was all plastic. This plus the Super Robot Chogokin non-transformable Daijyujin means we're getting twice the diecast! I'm really hoping we'll get a diecast Dragonzord/Dragon Caesar from one line or the other!
Man, this guy has a huge area.
"From days of long ago, from uncharted regions of the universe, comes a legend; the legend of Voltron, Defender of the Universe, a mighty robot, loved by good, feared by evil!"
He-Man & She-Ra
By the power of... Greenskull!
Original She-Ra production cels are rad.
Artoo, you're looking a little green around the gills.
Really excited about this new Captain Marvel book!
Ray, when someone asks you if you're a god, you say, "Yes"!
These are the folks from the High Tech High Graphic Novel Project. Very inspiring stuff!
Fine, if she can kiss a gorilla, I'll kiss someone else, too!
You're pretty! PLEASE DON'T KILL ME.
"Lego Hulk block angry!"
Adventure Time is full of hot air.
Even babies are doing steroids.
Soon, there will be Lego or Lego ripoffs of every pop culture character ever.
This seems like an Internet parody, but I swear to you Street Fighter x Sanrio is a real thing.
And then right before we left I found a Blackbird.
