Phoenix Comicon is in full swing this weekend! Rather than tell you about it, I’m just gonna show you. Enjoy the pictures by Nerdvana contributor Pax Whitmore!
Oddly, the line to purchase tickets at the door was shorter than the line for pre-paid people to go in. Way to be prepared, Phoenix!
The cost for an autograph from Leonard Nimoy was a steep $75. Worth it for many.
LEGO citizens look on as a tentacled monster destroys a building. Elsewhere in the city, LEGO Spiderman swings on his web.
One exhibitor displayed her stock of custom-sculpted monsters.
Incredible creativity and detail.
Assorted lightsabers ranged in price from $60 to more than $200.
The lightsabers came in many colors. The more expensive models could change colors up to four times.
Part of the appeal of Boba Fett is the versatility of his helmet design, I think.
THIS ... IS ... COMICON!
Max Brooks, author of "The Zombie Survival Guide" and "World War Z" is awesome. Very well-read, well-spoken, and charismatic. Just be sure you don't, as he put it, "bust his balls" during the Q&A portion. He will finish what you start.
Leonard Nimoy received a standing ovation as he walked out to the podium.
Graphic artists practiced their craft as spectators looked on.
Life-size remote controlled droids whirred around the droid arena, much to the delight of some of the younger patrons.
Boba Fetts abound at Phoenix Comicon.
