    Flynn's Arcade and Down the Rabbit Hole Comic Con Part 1

    Comic Con 2009 -was the crazy nerdfest that is expected again this year......So many pictures to post.

    One of the Highlights from outside the Convention Center....
    Saturday night after a long day--we were finally headed back to the car and bumped intos Flynn's. With a line outside that looked like a hip Night club. Flynn's ??? (Danny had heard whispers at one point in the day. Saying I think Flynn's Arcade opens at .... ) ... Of course Flynn's is the name of the Arcade owned by Jeff Bridges in the original Tron.....So we jumped in line with no idea of how long we would have to wait or what was actually inside...




    The wait was worth it!
    For inside was a 1980's arcade with all the old school video games....Ms. Pacman.....Gallaga ...Phoenix....Etc.. and they were all free....

    80's music was blaring over the speakers


    . (Weird Science ) to be exact....It was straight out of Tron.....I ran around taking pictures.





    Recognize this?





    They even had numerous Space Paranoid machines....The game of Flynn's choice ---that were playable and even had Flynn's high scores on them









    Danny rocking the Space Paranoids


    This Flynn guy is pretty damn good





    and of course the classic arcade game for Tron







    Me posing next to an Arcade machine


    Then after about 10 -15 Minutes of Free video games and 80's music....The lights flickered and a load Electric sound buzzed over the speakers and the doors under this Tron sign opened




    Music throbbed as we headed down a dark corridor passing by Concept art of Lightcycles


    Cool stuff....


    Really cool stuff



    We turned the corner and (BAM) (WOW) A Freaking Lightcycle.......Too cool for words.....for a Tron Fan like me......I had taken over 170 pictures that day and wouldn't it be my luck.....The camera battery died after only one shot of it........



    What a cool way to advertise the movie.....Really unique...As we left they gave out free Flynn's Arcade T-shirts... Nerd heaven....

    Here is the Flynn shirt


    A better pick of the Lightcyle from online (Publicity photo)


    I'm so excited for a Tron Remake....I've been hoping for one for years....For Part 1 of my comic con I leave you with youtube video link that show Flynn's Arcade Lightcycle reveal

    and Teaser Trailer

    Re: Flynn's Arcade and Down the Rabbit Hole Comic Con Part 1

    Another treat outside of the Comic Con was Disney's other Promo ---which was a trip to Wonderland....

    This Burton film looks amazing and we were able to get a sneak peek at some of the props and artwork in this cool little walkthrough exhibit.



    Follow me down the Rabbit hole



    Or maybe down the weird door with sky in the background



    Ahhhhhh I'm Falling down --down ---down




    Supersized Alice



    Now listen carefully ---The red pill or the green pill
    (oops wrong movie)
    Drink Me!


    Eat ME!




    Use the Key


    Alice's Dress



    This Exhibit just keeps getting more curious by the second


    I think things are quite Mad in fact --
    How about we stop for a bit of tea




    Johnny Depp looking weird



    I feel like I'm in a Tom Petty Video




    Flowers with faces ---what exactly was in that tea




    I've simply gone mad I tell you....Know I'm seeing Jack Sparrows


    Off with her wig!





    I said Off with her bloody head! I'm not going to Axe again




    Helen in a Tim Burton movie? I never would have guessed.


    Anne Hathaway looking quite White





    Prop time!




    Oh no I'm Seeing Sparrows again I've got to get out of here.






    Danny I think maybe we should followe that White Rabbit...Put down that giant chess piece and lets get out of here
    a href="http://s115.photobucket.com/albums/n302/mrdiff/ComicCon%202009/?action=viewĄt=Comiccon2009157.jpg" target="_blank">

    "Testing , Testing.....Is my microphone on?" I guess NOT SO MUCH interest in Tron and Alice in Wonderland exhibits...


    I'll throw in a bonus photo of Lando with Colt 45 just to keep the post alive a little longer...In case anyone wants to see it.

    nice shots brad! wow... i can't believe we didn't see the recognizers painted on the walls of the arcade.
    did you get any of the Flynn's tokens? does anyone know if they created the playable Space Paranoids game for the arcade? and did anyone happen to catch both of the Disney Panels?

    for anyone interested, we have different photos of some of the same Disney Comic Con stuff.
