Suumpir'ade Clan Invades Motor City Comic Con (MI)
« on: May 16, 2010, 09:21 PM »

In Novi Michigan, Mercs were present for the Motor City Comic Con between Friday May 14 - Sunday May 16. Visitors were entertained to find Mandalorians present at the convention for the first time near the 501st booth. Cheers were often heard as onlookers were treated to the Michigan Mercs trophy of Jar Jar Binks on a stick. On the first day of the convention MIchigan Mercs were allowed to perform a special escort of Jeremy Bulloch and Daniel Logan to a presentation on playing the role of Boba Fett in the Star Wars films and the voice acting for The Clone Wars in the case of Daniel Logan. Both were very appreciative of that Mercs involvement and were happy to see such dedicated fans to the character.

Saturday, the Mercs were allowed to participate in the 501st Droid Hunt, which Baziil was excepetionally successful in hunting down many participants, which greatly aided the Legion. Sunday the Mercs were able to do a raffle for a helmet, vest, and armor set to a lucky winner who we hope to one day join our ranks. The armor was noted to fit like a glove on the winner. A fun time was had by all at Motor City Comic Con, though it seems the Mercs had a better share than most at this convention.

OMG IT WAS AWESOME!!!!!!   ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Ahem, sorry about the caps but wow, my first con as a merc was so much fun!!!  I learned pretty quick that a just being a mandalorian in full kit is how to scare little kids though...  :rolleyes:  ;)  lol   Some of the little ones needed a little encouragement to be in the pictures.  They warmed up to us pretty quick when we let them "arrest" us  or shoot the camera with our own blasters.  So many people wanted to take our pics I lost count.  Heck, when we had asked other costumers if we could take their pictures, many of them would ask if they could take our picture too.  Especially so when we had the Jar Jar's head on a stick.  lol  Triker did a good job of making that one for us.   ;D

The droid hunt was fun,  all us mercs cleaned house on the first circuit around and then picked up the stragglers on the second time around.  The 501st were great to us, and Jeremy Bulloch and Daniel Logan were awesome.  In fact, Jeremy made it a point to come to our table when he was leaving for the night, each night, to talk to us a little bit.  That was very nice of him.  Daniel even made a few trips to our table when he could to chat us up.  

While we were standing in for "security" at the talk Jeremy and Daniel gave, Jeremy even pointed out our clan cook Kuur Ujalayi as a "Mandalorian Cook".   We'll have to call her "Mamma Mando" now though as she is dangerous with that wooden spoon...

We saw all manor of Star wars characters and others at the con... and we hunted most of them.  ;) lol  


EDIT: I got a photobucket account (finally) and here's the link to the album of my pics I took, or rather were taken on my camera

Exhausted, so I won't say much.. My foot is swelling like a grape and throbbing, but the Con was awesome. Thanks to everyone who made it so much fun! And Rob, the TK/Gunner who was talking to you at tear down, I believe from Canada, I need his contact info... He helped me limp back to Mercs table and kit down, standup guy.

Proud of every blasted one of you. Seriously guys, best time ever... Even if I did get beaten with a spoon repeatedly.

Oh I should also point out that we had quite a few people there express interest in making their own kits and joining the mercs.  I even talked to a few Trekkors were looking to possible jump ship and climb on board with the mercs!!

Um.  Allo. *nerd wave*

First of all, Con pix-n-vidz! http://s47.photobucket.com/albums/f196/Cybrokat/ComiCon/

Second of all, thanks Novall and HBrika.  :D Being the cook was a blast. I was constantly getting laughter from my spoon. :) I even cracked Daniel Logan with it. Twice. I told people I would smack them with a baby in one hand and my spoon in the other. The Uj cake seemed to go over well, and I'll stick with that recipe. Maybe at some point, I'll even write it down.  8) Already contemplating upgrades to my 'kit' and how I want to do my first bucket. I'm thinking chest plates on the apron....

And yes, Mr. Bulloch told the crowd that the Fett/Mando characterzation, unlike so many, was left vague enough you could really make it your own 'like the Mandolorian cook over there." I waved, and was told after I am now a nerd like you guys, whether I want to be or not because when the Fett himself says you're a Mando, you don't get a vote.  ;)

The Jar Jar on a stick was hilarious! Everyone seemed to be really friendly, and many vendors gave us a discount because they liked the armor or because they were 501st and we were Mercs. Very kind of them, and they were thanked. Fetts 1 and 2 were gracious enough to sign our photo book and thank us after the con. Bulloch also brought over the sign announcing his name to Bazii and signed it for the book. Very charming man.

For my first time in a kit of any kind, I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Nice people, great photos, new experiences, and free food. ;) Looking forward to the next invasion!

And I would like to add that every hit Ijaat got with the spoon was thoroughly earned!

Love yourself, give them Hell.
You can take on this world.
You just stand and be strong
And then fight

And, just to show Kuur earning her name and making sure Rob kept some meat on his bones, here is a photo from her collection of them over the weekend:
