Salt Lake Comic Con!!!!!!

So we went to the first Salt Lake City Comic Con today and had a blast.  The highlight was meeting Nicholas Brendan who played Xander on Buffy the Vampire Slayer as he is the namesake of our Xander! He was incredibly nice. 

 Here's the three of us (Mara and Jaina didn't come but Xander loved it)

Here is me and Dave Wolverton (He changed his last name to something else now)  who wrote The Courtship of Princess Leia, which is the first Star Wars book I ever owned and he signed my copy!

Then here is me and Kevin J Anderson who has written several SW books, SW short stories, SW comics and lots of other things but he signed my Jedi Search book!

My score for the con was this D Arts Zero figure. He is different than my Kotobukiya Megaman and Protoman but he is still incredible!

 He has lots of extra interchangeable accessories.

I also found several booths with great deals on vintage toys but this is the one I couldn't leave without.  This is M.A.S.K. toy Vampire that was the first M.A.S.K. toy I got as a kid.  It is missing the front windshield and missiles but it was a great deal and I love it!
 Here is Breanne, me and our friend Meretta! I wanted to meet some of the other famous people there like Ray Park, Peter Mayhew, David Prowse, William Shatner etc but it was so expensive to even take a picture with them with your own camera so we didn't meet anyone else just stood and saw them from like 20 feet away.  Nicholas Brendan was only 10$ so thanks go to him for not being super expensive!
