ConNooga Kidz 2013
Help us raise funds for guests, activities, and crafts for the 2013 ConNooga Kidz track.
We are entering the 6th year of ConNooga in beautiful Chattanooga, TN. This multi-genre sci-fi/fantasy/comic/anime/pop culture/etc. con has always tried to have a family-friendly aspect, knowing that geeky parents want to involve their kids in these hobbies. To this end, the ConNooga Kidz track has fan-related guests and activities specifically for kids under 13. Each year we have expanded this track and look to do so again in 2013. We want this to be a mini con-within-a-con, catering to kids growing up with interests in all aspects of fandom.
This is the 250th post on Yoda Archives. The master Jedi had to make an appearance.
This is my first customization of a character. I have built a few MOC character but.this is the first try at making a published character. LEGO Zatanna is built from the parts of various LEGO mini-figures. The legs are borrowed from the Black Canary Figure I purchased online. The other parts are official LEGO items. On one version of this I had text on the image. She said “raeppa idej” or Jedi appear but I think it slowed down the joke. Yoda said “Fire my agent, I will”. I think the visual is enough.
please like, share, and comment.
The Zombie Hunter finds new targets, the Silence from Dr Who.
It’s been over a week since the Memphis Comic and Fantasy Convention. I finally have time to blog on the con. This was the third year of the con but the first time they had a track dedicated to LEGO. This was also the first LEGO event I’ve attended.
We went to sell my toy photography prints. Once we were set up I got to walk around a bit. The first purchase I made was from the Citizen Brick booth. I knew they mini-fig babies so I had to get one to commemorate my son’s birth. I also picked up a zombie heady and a victim torso.
I bought a few Mini-figs from Milton Train Works. I got a series 2 life guard, series 8 Santa and another figure from a set that I don’t own. It’ll appear in a future post. With the purchase of the life guard I now have at least one mini-fig from every series but #1
Brickmania toys had some great looking kits. and a Bikini Bottom MOC. The LEGO group was there but as display only they didn’t have products for sale. But they did have a LEGO Batman comic book. It was game trailer in a printed form.
There were also vendors selling various LEGO sets and mini-figures. Since it was part of a comic convention, there were several places selling comic books, toys, t-shirts and geek stuff. There were also some panels, concerts, and short films.
We had a lot of fun and hope to make it back. More pictures on my site, RenaissanceFairePictorial.com
Coolest costume at the convention.
This comic uses Magneto from Wolverine’s Chopper showdown set #6866. The soda cans are another find from the EclipseGrafix booth at Memphis Comic & Fantasy Convention. They are Custom LEGO pieces designed and created by eclipseGrafx. The cans are printed pieces and even have a pull tab printed on top.
BrixiCola, Brk Dew, and Brika-cola are available for $2 a pop at EclipseGrafix.
Image is sold as a 4×6 print on e-bay. Larger prints will be available soon.
Well looks like you guys like zombies. The Ready for the Zombies pic went to the top of my most liked posts within hours of being posted. It will be available as a print in the online store soon. I just need to tweak the print a bit more.
I’d like to welcome all the new followers both from the Memphis Comic and Fantasy Convention and one that have found via other ways. I have finished working on my pics of the convention and will have a post up this weekend. I’m working on another pic with some of my convention purchases.
What other characters would you like to see here? I got a lot of feedback at the convention. which is one of the good things about meeting people at cons. I’m off the road for the winter and will soon be back to regularly posting new photos. what characters, comics, or show would you like to see?
See the sidebar for my current e-bay listings of prints and mini-figs.
This is one of my purchases from Memphis Comic and Fantasy Convention. I bought it from eclipseGRAFX. They are a reseller of a couple of Brick brands. They also make their own custom accessories and mini-figs. I have more cool stuff to photograph and post. Stay tuned.
Print now for sale on E-bay. coming to online shop soon.
Last week my mailbox was full. I received my LEGO business card holder and my Moo Cards. I first saw the card holder at Model Building Secrets. It took a while to finally show up in the LEGOShop It is set 850425. With the set you can build a card holder, a plate to put your name, and two mini figs.
My Moo cards also arrived. These card are really sharp. They are colorful and are made of heavy card stock. You can get multiple images in an order. I’ll be handing these out at fairs and conventions. Like the cards, order some with your images via this link, Moo Cards and save 10%. Plus I’ll earn some credit on future orders.
Fairy is from Series 8 (8833).
Find this print and more at the Greenway Art Festival this Saturday!
Here is a cool collectible that benefits a great cause. The Pennsylvania Star Wars Collecting Society is selling medallions to help young burn survivors. The medallions are 1.75” in diameter with colored enamel on both faces. A certificate of authenticity is included. These medallions were inspired by the concept of “challenge coins” which are popular among military personnel. The Yoda coin was first sold at Celebration VI but is now online while supplies last.
Mid-Atlantic Burn Camp charity fundraiser
The Pennsylvania Star Wars Collecting Society is honored to support Mid-Atlantic Burn Camp through a special charitable fundraiser. We will be selling medallions featuring Yoda. The medallions were produced in a one-time run of 1000 medallions with the permission of Lucasfilm Ltd. All proceeds generated through the sale of these medallions will be donated to Mid-Atlantic Burn Camp. Ordering instructions can be found at PSWCS
These are very nice looking coins with a solid feel to them. I got last year’s coin which benefited Operation Troop Appreciation. The coin featuring Leia in Hoth gear was shown on my Star Wars Gifts that help post. For more Star Wars Fan charities see my side bar.
