Wizard World 2019 News: James Marsters Dropped??

So a few days ago, I was roaming around Twitter as you do and saw a post from James Marsters say that he was dropped random from Wizard World Portland. With no reason as to why, he went on to inform everyone that was coming to this comic con. I might note that this Wizard World is vary heavy on the Buffy theme with Alyson Hannigan, Alexis Denisof, Juliet Landau, Julie Benz, Amber Benson, Clare Kramer, and Charisma Carpenter.

With an out cry from his fans trying to figure out as to why he was removed from the line up. I personally went and asked my PR that I go through for my press pass and asked him. He didn’t have any idea as to why he was dropped as well. So after a few conversations back and forth, later on that day James updated he Twitter stating:

Jan 29

After seeing the concern and love from everyone last night, both me and ‘s management have mutually worked things out. I’m so happy to announce that I will still be attending Wizard World Portland! I’m very excited for this Buffy extravaganza and seeing you there!

Wizard World Unboxing Harry Potter: Slytherin Box

So while I did enjoy the items in the box. I feel it wasn’t worth $50.00. I’ve had Loot Crates or Geek Fuel boxes that are $25.00 or $30.00 at that chad better items in it and more. I think I had a problem with is how the box was setup. It’s a rather large box and when you open it, you see all the items upfront. A lanyard, small pillow key chain thing, belt, wallet, tie. Under these cool items was a white divider that took up more than half the box, making it look like there was more in there. NOPE…That was it..

 

Now like I said, I liked the loot, just don’t think it was work $50.00… Now we as got a free mystery box after buying Rick and Morty and Harry Potter Loot Crates. It was a one itme box and this one had Marvel socks (Dr. Strange theme).

No there are a number loot boxes all over Comic Con. Just rethink the Harry Potter crate.

Wizard World Rick & Morty Unboxing

So it seems that Comic Cons are getting in on the loot crate style boxes. Wizard World has a number of them this year. One being the Rick and Morty mystery box.

The box itself cost about $60.00 and inside is totally worth it!

We also got the Harry Potter: Slytherin loot box and a free mystery box. But that will be for another post.

Stan Lee’s Stolen Blood?!?

So this is a thing….. Happen to jump on the interwebs and saw this post, “Report: Stan Lee’s Stolen Blood Was Used to Sign Marvel Comics Sold in Las Vegas”.

Yep you read that right… People astound me at times with the level of crazy /stupidity they can accomplish.

https://io9.gizmodo.com/report-stan-lees-stolen-blood-stolen-was-used-to-sign-1825022655

Stan Lee, the legendary comics figure who helped bring many of Marvel’s most iconic characters to life, has been in the news lately for reasons beyond his comics legacy. Over the last month, several reports about Lee’s personal life have uncovered bizarre attempts to capitalize on the 95-year-old’s fortunes… and a new twist in the tale makes the saga even stranger.
