    Comic Con San Diego

    Yeah I know there's a couple Trip Report/Threads about CC but I thought I'd start my own

    I only got to go Saturday, but it t'was a fairly interesting and crazy time!
    Next year I'm going the whole 9 yards with it (4 days baby)

    I need the get the rest of my pics from the friends I was with, but I'll leave you with a couple teasers:

    Think of it as a game. Can you guess the two people Kuzcochik probably scared upon meeting at Comic Con?

    Victim #1: Who when I saw I made some horrid fan girl noise that I think made him run to the back of the trolley


    Victim #2: The best part of the day.. meeting a childhood/right now Hero ^_^ (Please ignore the terrible fangirly smile)



    Will be back with a bunch more photos soon

    Re: Comic Con San Diego

    K! So here we go. I'm bored and house sitting and finally had time to upload my photos and post about them.

    As I said here's:
    SATURDAY AT SAN DIEGO COMIC CON INTERNATIONAL: A KUZCOCHIK TRIP REPORT
    (brought to you in all caps and in stunning 3-D) (note: 3-D effects will not work without proper equipment... sold seperately)

    So we started the day around 10am. Having spent the previous day at Sea World and watching a bunch part of Scooby Doo and the Reluctant Were-Wolf (where I found out a disturbing piece of voice acting trivia that slightly ruined my childhood) we were in... weird spirits.

    We hopped on the trolley and were off on the hour long journey to con. 3 stops away from the Convention Center I'm staring out the window and I do a double take. There smiling away is a man that looks all too familiar to me. I lean over to my friend Scott and ask "Is that Tony Baxter?" My friend Julie goes "I was just thinking the same thing" so we continue staring at the man until he gets onto the trolley. I read his name tag and let out some horrid squeak like noise. I'm pretty sure I scared him to the back of the Trolley and then couldn't bring myself to try and talk to him afterwards. So here's the stalker-y photos I took.





    So we hurry over to the convention center. Already fairly overwhelmed (having not been there before) and getting hit by large "Superman Doomsday" bags people are toting around. We hurry upstairs to get out passes and make our way into the heart of the melee. After grabbing some freebies we meandered around upstairs unsure what we were really doing.
    As we're walking we see a sign for the voice actors panel being held. I had looked at the schedule before leaving home and there hadn't really been anyone I wanted to see but we decided to see who all was there anyway. As we slowly made our way across the back of the room I look at thesecond to last guy on the end and think "hey that looks like Jess Harnel". It wasn't upon closer inspection, but on his right was Rob Paulsen!!! Now I'm a big animation nerd and he is one of my idols/role models (I grew up in the 90's with years of Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain, TMNT, and Darkwing Duck to name a few). Plus I'm a huge fan o' voice actors in general
    So Julie and I squeal in fangirly delight and race to get seats. Scott got the whole panel on tape.

    The panel


    Rob Paulsen

    Pretty much everyone else there worked on Harvey Bird Man Attorney At Law or had fairly obscure roles in things:
    In the following pic: The man on the far right is Joe Alaskey: The current voice of Bugs, Daffy and a score of other Looney Tunes Characters
    Themiddle one is: Chris Edgerly the voice of Peter Potamus on Birdamn, and a bunch of characters in the latest addition of Celebrity Death Match
    The last man is Will Ryan the voice of Goofy and Willie the Giant in Mickey's Christmas Carol and Tigger & Rabbit in Welcome to Pooh Corner


    Another shot of Rob and the guy I thought was Jess Harnel from far away (very similar hair) He's actually Wally Wingret: voice of Red Tallest on Invader Zim and a bunch of other random voices on Birdman, Family Guy, and Naratou (sp?)


    Anyway, everyone was asked to talk about some of their famous characters and then some lesser known ones. Most of it was hilarious and amazing

    Rob again (Not that we were showing favoritism):


    Once everyone had finished they told anecdotes about meeting famous people while recording voices.
    Finally everyone was given a script for a shortened version of War of the Worlds
    The rules were simple: Everyone is given a few parts, they read it like a normal script but when the moderator says "Change" they have to change the voice they're using.
    Once again using our dear Mr. Paulsen as an example:
    He started reading his line, rather normal
    was told to change and suddenly sounded like the mad hatter
    then changed again into Pinky (and said the word Mars so hilariously we were quoting it all weekend)
    Afterwards there was a Q&A session: The first person up asked Rob "Pinky are you Pondering what I'm pondering" to which he responded "I think so Matt, but where are we going to find a duck and a hose at this hour?" Then he asked him to sing Yakko's World which he performed flawlessly to a standing ovation (How many times do you think that man's sung that song since that first time in1993?)
    There were more questions about tips to getting into voice acting and the like and then the panel was over.
    Julie and I raced toward the stage where Rob was talking to a girl. We waited patiently and then got a chance to speak to him (well really Julie did). She asked him if he could do the Steelbeak (from Darkwing Duck) laugh and he did and we started laughing and Julie accidentally tripped over a suitcase someone had left next to the stage. It was hilarious and we then talked to him a bit more.
    If you wanna see part of the video go check out youtube and look up "Rob Paulsen 2007" it should be the 1st or 2nd one up there.

    We went outside to talk for a bit and Rob ended up coming out so we asked to get a pic with him (He was seriously the nicest guy ever!!) I asked him if he could give me a "Hello Nurse" which he obliged and it was probably one of the coolest thingsever (My revised life goal is to have him and Jess Harnel say it at me at the same time.... I have high goals okkay :P)
    Here's the pic I posted earlier


    So after the panel and he general fangirly squeeing we headed into the main show room

    Spidey was hanging around:


    Lego Dark Night (his cape blew in the wind it was cool!)


    Julie and I still in a happy dazed state


    The Maleficent statue from Gentle Giants (they're even cooler in person)


    Painted Vader helmet


    The Vader who loves funky fruit hats (Family Guy anyone?)


    Starry Night Vader


    Scott and I chillin' with Optimus


    A pretty cool Davy Jones


    Leia's packin heat


    Elvis Trooper, baby


    Slave Leia near the giant Jabba


    Leia and Jack.... coolest/weirdest crossover ever!!


    Outside the Disney Pirates booth


    Tia Dalma and Gibbs.... Tia was pretty good. Gibbs wasn't great but he gets points cause he was a Gibbs cosplay ^_^


    The black pearl in all its splendor


    Vampire Jack Skellington... wish I'd been paying attention and known he was actually for sale


    OMG Teauge Sparrow 18" Fig!! I want one!


    Bart Man


    Copying an episode of Star Trek we'd watched a few days prior... if anyone knows what this was suppose to be you're either really sad or really cool....


    Da Muppets (I want them all)


    Lots and lots of Cars (I want the Bug Cars, the Twins and the Abominable/Adorable Snowman/mobile)






    Some Batman figs that were kinda weird but pretty cool


    The "Official" Spiderman of Comic Con


    A Bunch of Batman Cosplayers. Everyone but Huntress was pretty good


    I really like Harley and Joker


    and finally C3PO and R2D2 in leggo form.... good times



    That was really about it for our day. We sadly missed the Disney panel but we had a great time and like I said earlier I'm doing the full thing next year. All four flippin' days!! That way I can make sure I see everything.

    Dude! That's so cool! I totally saw your pic the other day and was like "no way!"
    I know Maurice LaMarche (aka the Brain) was suppose to be there too... like one big Animaniacs reunion 14 or so years later
    I wonder where Tress MacNeil was :P
