Mercs Invade San Diego Comic-Con 2010
« on: Aug 03, 2010, 12:40 AM »


The 2010 San Diego Comic-Con was held from the 22nd through the 25th of July and was invaded by the Mandalorian Mercs led by the Haran'galaar Clan, with the assistance of the Manda'galaar Clan and individual mercs from Nevada, Northern California, Arizona and Tennessee. On Friday we provided security for the Slave Leia photo shoot with assistance from the 501st. We were also given the opportunity to pose for photos on the stage at the Lucas Film Limited booth on Saturday. Also on the evening of the 24th we held the Mando dinner at Hooters in the Gaslamp District of San Diego. On Sunday at the Mandolorian Mercs booth we had a give away drawing of an M-DSB Props Mercenary Helmet, donated by M-DSB.

Steve Sansweet stopped by the table and seemed favorably impressed with our table and people. We even got a photo.

Perla Nogard was able to get in to the panel Karen Traviss was appearing in, and passed on our regards as well as getting a signature on a Mercs shirt.

We had a great time and were happy to see all the folks who were able to come this year. Lots of people showed an interest in our club. People from all over visited our table, asked for info and signed up for a post-con contact list. We had people from as near as San Diego and as far away as France express interest in armoring up and joining the Mandalorian Mercs. All in all the invasion of SDCC was a resounding success and I would like to thank all who were able to attend and hope to see more Mercs here next year.

Always Faithful

Some interesting stories.

While up at the Lucasfilm for the second photoshoot, we were visited by some guests who either really wanted a picture with us...or just wanted to be jerks.

We were visited by a clan of Predators, whom at first were very cool, One not so cool. But, we dealt with her.

And we were also visited by.....something. Dudes with potato sacks on thier heads and giant scythe/axe looking things. They simply walked up behind us, through us, and then off the stage....very interesting to say the least.

We also had a few 501st assist us in the Slave Leia Shoot as we appeared to be short handed at first. But, once we got there, with the limited room, we realized we were a little over staffed.

We had some great Hotel Shinanigans during the evening, and roamed the gas lamp. And made two ransom calls to Ada Ka's room mates....turns out they only had $12 dollars, so we kept her.

Tyrian, Vid, and I also met a great guy by the name of Mic the Scallywag, nice guy who does professional make-up and costuming for events.

Oh yeah...and a drive to find a Burger King. A challenge in it's own right, but a lot of fun.

I met Sean Patrick Flannery too, if only for a brief moment.

Aaaaand, Brokenboba's kids got so scared at the Hooters by these costumed guys working for The Haunted Hotel right next door....it was cute and funny.

All in all, I had a great two days and lost a few pounds in the process.

Thank you every, for again making it a wonderful vacation for me.

I am really glad that you all did so much this year, and had such a great turn out.  It will probably be a few years before I can get back out to SDCC due to cost...but honestly you guys and gals don't need me there to shine!

That's great!  I wish I'd have made it back down to SDCC that weekend to meet some of you in person before being shipped out. I hope to get stationed in San Diego when I'm done with my tour in Guam.

i know but I missed going by and my costume wasnt up to snuff with standerds, i mean i have no gaunts, no pouches on my belt, pieces were falling off and I didnt want to embarass myself, but next year I'll have a different set of armor, and hopefully it will be better.
