This was Scums first attendance of Comic Con Revolution Ontario! We will be back! Such a great smaller sized con. We were able to interact with everyone in smaller groups and it was just chill and fun! We ran into our buddies Mandalorian Mercs and Saberguild and got to hang out a bit. The event center was clean and had easy access to some yummy food trucks parked outside.
The Transformer voice guy was there doing pix and autographs. haha not a big transformer fan I guess… I didn’t have cable when that toon was on…
A highlight was meeting Colin Cantwell and getting his signature on his deathstar concept model. Also got a pic with him and chatted a little. Very nice gentleman! He seemed to get a kick out of the droids :) Mr. Cantwell was one of the first George Lucas got to work on “The Star Wars” back in the day. He designed many ships and prototype models via “kitbashing.” A really awesome technique an one that gives Star Wars that unique look. Taking random pieces and putting it together to make a different piece. So cool. It was hard picking a photo for him to sign, ultimately I went with the DeathStar :) Great story behind it too. One that we can all relate to as builders. Apparently he purchased a styrene sphere to model put the 2 pieces of it didn’t line up right and would take a lot of work to adjust it and make it look like a perfect circle. Mr. Cantwell suggest to George to have the trench run along the middle of it to avoid all that work. George agreed to it after thinking it over and thus the birth of the deathstar trench ! other ships of his design was the YWing, Tie figher, star destroyer, land speeder, sandcrawler and millennium falcon. Always a pleasure meeting anyone working on or has worked on the movies.
Cosplays of the day were Joe Dirt and his meteorite, little poison ivy, baby Han Solo with remote control millenium falcon and TV head!
There was a nice presence of star cars as well! The batmobile was AMAZING ! !
We also had fun with Zany Jr! Instagram & Facebook. She does fun con videos involving cosplayers. We preteneded like Krank drove the MSE droid with gopro camera into the womens bathroom and I came out all mad with the droid haha it was ridiculous and awesome! Give her a follow !
