I just got back from the Spring Time Edition of the "Chiller Theatre Expo", if you ever been to the Chiller show you know it's hard to fit everything in a night so this time around I went to the Friday and Saturday Portion of the Show. During the Weekend I got to hang with some great people like The Lombardos (Nick & Nikki), Kristy Jett, Sean VHSPS, Chris Ott, and also meet Jimmy (of Dr. Terrors' Blog of Horrors ) in person for the first time and also Tiffany who posts on the SMF Facebook Page. It was a Fantastic time, but the crowds were way overwhelming . . . Saturday you couldn't even move around so I ended up jetting around 3pm. Friday night was less packed so I got the majority of my DVD Buys and Guest Signings in that night, I also spent a lot of time shooting the shit with Nick and Nikki which was the highlight of my weekend, well it's a tie cause K.J., James, and I had an EpicFail/You Had To Be There of a Lunch at a Local Chinese Restaurant before the Show!
Rather then bore you with tons of stupid "personal" details, here a Shit-load of Pics from the weekend and also my Chiller "Loot" . . .
So I narrow down what Guests I wanted to meet at the show the night before, and since Bobby "The Brain" Heenan and Zoe Bell weren't able to make the show, I ended up meeting just 4 People All Weekend! The lowest about for a show to date, but the 4 I meet were all Pretty Epic!
Dean Cameron of Summer School was the person i was most excited to meet, his role of "Chainsaw" is one of my all-time favorite Movie Characters!
I also meet 80s Wrestling Icon/G.I. Joe Sgt. Slaughter!
Slaughter was in Great Shape, I hate saying this but every time you see a Wrestler at these shows they look pretty old and beaten down . . . But not The Sarge, he still looked ready to Kick Some Cobra Ass!
Next up is Al Leong!
You may recognize him from "Bill & Ted", but he's also the dude in every BadAss Action Film Ever Made! Everything from Lethal Weapon to Die Hard!
The Final guest I meet over the weekend was Robert Loggia!
I love this man in so many movies . . . "Big", "Scarface" . . ."Over The Top"! A True Hollywood Legend!
As you may know from other posts around these parts I am a big time Wrestling Toy Lover, at this show there were a lot of people selling old school WWF guys for about $3-5 a pop so here's the ones I picked up . . .
Some WWF Hasbros, I had the first 3, never had "Green Suite" Ted, but I really needed the Million Dollar Belt
Bootlegs, with the last guy being a deadringer for the Iron Shiek
Thumb Wrestlers of Hogan and Big John Studd
Bendy figures of Mr. Wonderful, King Kong Bundy, J.Y.D., and Hillbilly Jim
A couple months ago I did a post on HERE about the 90s Dick Tracy Toys and how I was missing "Flattop" and "The Rodent" . . . Well I found them at Chiller!
Here's my DVD/Blu-Rays Pickups . . .
From VHSPS I got . . .
"Remote Control", "Last House on Dead Street", "Shock 'Em Dead", "Killer Party", and Warlock Video's "Happy Helladays"
From other tables I got . . .
"WoodChipper Massacre", "Toxic Crusaders Cartoon", and "Maniac Cop" on Bluray!
These Two Poster are huge and the seller only want $5 for them!
A "Vice Squad" Lobby Card for $1 . . . Team Ramrod 4 Life
