New York Comic Con 2012 - Day 3 - Sunday (Very Picture Heavy)

Day 3 - Sunday

 

Here it is, the final day. Two of my friends had to leave at 7am since they messed up on their bus tickets and there was no other time/way for them to get home. So it was just 3 of us now, so we headed to the convention center (after checking out of the hotel) and the first thing I noticed when I stood in line to get in was the extreme amount of young children.

 

Apparently Sunday, kids get in for free. I don't know about you, but bringing your small children to a massive convention thats jam-packed with people isn't the best idea in my opinion. Needless to say, I saw several staff members running around with signs looking for lost children. ANYWAYS.

 

We ran around buying a few things (Such as my figures) until it was time for the Namco Bandai panel.

 

Namco Bandai Panel

 

We mainly went to this panel because my friend wanted to hear about the new Tales of Xillia game. They only talked about Naruto Ninja Storm 3 and Tales of Xillia. They had the directors of both game series there. However the panel was structured as Q&A but from "pre-selected" questions. That was probably the worst part about the panel. However, the two Japanese guests were awesome, especially the Naruto director who was cosplaying and making spazzy motions the whole time.

 

NISA Panel

 

We then headed right over to the NISA panel after the Namco Bandai panel. The line was pretty long but not terrible. NISA mainly talked about their anime releases, though they did mention some of their games such as Witch and 99 Knights and Mugen Souls. They went through their releases, and talked abit about the localization questions and then revealed their December release for the first time, Umineko no naku koro ni, When the Seagulls Cry. They also gave out some freebies via lottery and my friend actually one an Anohana blanket from them!

 

After the NISA panel we went over to the Persona booth and tried to win a Teddy standee, which we didn't, but we saw some cool Persona cosplay. After that we were pooped so we left and chilled at a restaurant until our bus showed up. Was quite a long exhausting weekend but I had a blast!

What the hell man? Nobody told me there would be so many dang pictures!

 

I swear, just looking at the images alone made me forget you went to comic con and not just some big anime convention. Anyway, sounds fun even if you are more of an anime/gaming geek and not just a comic fan. That said, I would imagine that you most likely hate children or people in general because of the crowds...

 

Btw, any explanation as to why it only showed the yen amount for the chibi figures?

With the exception of the Batman stuff barrel seems right about it seeming like an anime convention. However, those are just from the pictures you put up. That Darth Maul was lego...wow...

Because it was at the booth for Good Smile Company (The Japanese company that makes them) and weren't for sale :(

Project Triforce (batman glove/gears stuff) makes some of the most amazing replicas. I'm not sure if they had any there, but the Riddler Trophy from Arkham City looks spectacular. Their stuff is quite expensive, though.

Well, I'm not really into comics that much hence there aren't really any pictures of that aspect of the con (a good half of the con was comic related stuff). And why there are more videogame/anime related pictures than anything else.

 

That Darth Maul scared me, I thought it was a real person when I first glanced at it!

I really think that Goku figure looks really cool and I really want that one. Some other cool ones are the one with the girl in teh blue skimpy outfit and I think Sonic figure was cool (nothing special, just because it was sonic). I'm glad they got some yu yu hakusho stuff there as well. But man that is awesome.
