MRS Bunkermeister and I went to WonderCon this last weekend. It's like ComicCon, only it was in Orange County, across the street from Disneyland this year.
I picked up The Thing from the Fantastic 4, in 28mm as a HeroClix item, I cut him off the base. I will rebase him later because I don't use the HeroClix system. I also think Ben Grimm should be a bit larger than often depicted and so a 28mm version looks good in 1/72nd scale to me. I might repaint him so he is more orange.
Got the Silver Surfer also. I will rebase him too. I might also swap out the flame hands with regular hands. I have even considered swapping out the figure for a different pose. On the other hand, how big is a Silver Surfer in 1/72nd scale?
The Con was huge, there were a lot of people there. Parking was terrible, we had to park at the Garden Walk and it was about a mile to the ticket booth / check in and we had to walk. We were not happy about that! I did pick up a few other items as well.
