Fanboy Expo – 2016

Fanboy Expo has grown, which is both good and bad. Good, because it brings bigger names to somewhere that isn’t Charlotte or Atlanta and bad because that comes with Growing Pains. The show is trying hard to stay affordable, and I got to hand it to them for that, but they need a bigger space, because I’ve never been as cramped as my life at a convention as I was today (and considering WalkerStalker, that’s a statement).  I don’t think they counted on the sea of rednecks and good ole boys to show up for Flair and the Dukes of Hazard cast (not to mention Shatner, Barbara Eden and Dawn Wells being big draws).

But it’s time for the Loot!

William Shatner had a pretty sizeable Line, I went for him first thing, and there went an Hour. I’m pleased to finally add the Captain to my collection, he was super nice, and looking great.

Ric Flair made me go WOOO, Meeting the Nature Boy is always exciting, and I was pumped to see he had something new and unique at his booth…Boots! I now proudly own boots signed by the Nature Boy, who is a super super nice guy (and who had a longer wait than Shatner)

Raymond Persi is an award winning Animator and voiced Flash in Zootopia, super nice guy, and as an animation nut, I’m pumped to add a pretty unique 11×14 to my collection.

Catherine Bach was my longest line of the day, clocking in at just under 2 hours. I’m pretty pumped I was able to meet her, as she was an absolute sweetheart. Every country boy needs to meet Daisy Duke, Mission Accomplished.

Barbara Eden is another Icon, and she was super sweet. I thought the B/W Photo in Silver came out Great, and she’s another huge add to the collection.

Linda Larkin was by far the nicest suprise of the Day, as she was super bubbly and sweet. She’s another Disney Princess for me, which is quickly becoming one of my favorite parts of my collection.

Kevin Nash and Scott Hall were both super great guys, and Scott Hall was one of the funniest guys I’ve met at a convention. Sadly, I had a “Causality” happen and somehow in the Tennessee Heat….Hall’s signature stuck to the acid free sleeves I use every time, without any hitches. Pretty bummed on that one, but I got a great photo op, and Nash came out well.
