Texas Does The Time Warp Again at FAN EXPO DALLAS

by on January 30th, 2017

The Rocky Horror Picture Show’s Tim Curry, Barry Bostwick and Meat Loaf will reunite at FAN EXPO DALLAS 2017 located in downtown Dallas for Three Days.

The FAN EXPO DALLASis March 31st through April 2nd at the Dallas Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center.

The FAN EXPO DALLAS show will be Stan Lee’s last Texas appearance as well so this show should be EPIC! If you are interested in getting a photo op or autograph the fees are $120.00 for each not for both. I suggest checking the schedule beforehand so you know when the photo ops and autograph sessions are happening.

I went last year and had a blast…as much as you can with little boys and teenage boys poking you in the behind with their light sabers. I have gone in total to 4 Comic Cons / FAN EXPOs overthe last year and each one boast more technology than the previous show (except for Silicon Valley).

I just submitted my press credentials to attend this years FAN EXPO DALLAS and very excited about the cast of Rocky Horror Picture Show being there. Hopefully I will be approved and will be on ground zero throughout the show updating you all via my twitterand my Youtube channel. Continue Reading…

Complimentary Admission for Kids at Fan Expo Dallas (Comic Con)

by on May 25th, 2016

ComicCon D

This year was the first year that I went to ComicCon in Silicon Valley and now I’m invited to attend the Dallas version of Comic Con. I must admit when I attended Comic Con I had no idea what I was in for and there were some drop jaw moments for sure. My favorite was playing with light sabers; who doesn’t love that?

To my surprise Dallas also has a Comic Con but they call it FAN EXPO DALLAS™. I’m filling out the press badge now but look at this celebrity guest list (Stan Lee, William Shatner, George Takei and John and Joan Cusack) and that’s not all of them…just the ones I’m interested is seeing.

If I do attend I think this time I will have a costume or maybe my friends at Flashion Statement will send me a new shirt for this event and E3.

Below is all the information on the FAN EXPO DALLAS™ (ie: Comic Con).

Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd and Lea Thompson Reunite For Silicon Valley Comic Con

by on February 3rd, 2016

SCVCOMIC

I am very excited about the Silicon Valley Comic Con in March; it will have some amazing panels and also a special Back to the Future Reunion. If you are an 80’s baby like me then you would be epically excited that Michael J. Fox was confirmed today to be at the Back to the Future Reunion with Christopher Lloyd and Lea Thompson.

Back to the Future is timeless; so many great lines from that movie that are still used today! I remember my brother would not stop saying “Great Scott” after he saw the movie but all I remember is where do I get one of those Hover Boards and that jacket?

604Oddly recently announced DeLorean announced that it plans to turn out around 300 units of the DMC-12, beginning in 2017 starting under $100,000.00.

At last years SXSW I got to see one of the DeLorean replicas and I always wanted one till I saw it in person and realized it’s not as cool as it looked in the movie (what ever does?).

To check out the new DeLorean click here.

Other celebrities to attend Comic include: Jon Heder, Sean Astin, Stan Lee, and many many more!Comicon List

To see the full Press Release from Silicon Valley Comic Con see below. I hope to see all you fans there!

Silicon Valley Comic Con (SVCC), Steve Wozniak’s pop culture and technology expo, today revealed that Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd and Lea Thompson will reunite for a must-attend panel, photo ops and special signings at a “Back to the Future” Premiere Event during the show. The inaugural Silicon Valley Comic Con will be hosted at the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, CA the weekend of March 18-20, 2016.

This will mark Michael J. Fox’s first appearance at a North American Comic Con. It will also be the first time Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd and Lea Thompson have appeared together for fan photo-ops at a comic con type event. The Back to the Future event will take place Saturday, March 19 and include a panel with Fox, Lloyd and Thompson.

“I wanted to be a part of Silicon Valley Comic Con because for me this show highlights what the Valley has meant to science, technology and innovation and encapsulates what Back To The Future is about and much of what seems to be such a strong bond for many fans of the film and why it still lives in their imaginations,” said Christopher Lloyd. “I am really looking forward to meeting the fans at Silicon Valley Comic Con.”

“If my calculations are correct, when Silicon Valley Comic Con hits full speed… you’re going to see some serious s**t,” said Steve Wozniak.
