Characters from The Avengers to Warcraft to other popular characters and fans alike gather at the third annual Comic Con Revolution in Ontario, California. CCR attendees took photos with their favorite characters, browsed through the exhibit hall and attended panels.
Industry guests featuring the likes of Peter Cullen and the voice cast of Transformers, Sam Witwer who is the voice of Darth Mail and Agent Liberty from Supergirl and Phil Lamar who voices Samurai Jack and Hermès Conrad from Futurama!
Saturday hosts a day full of interesting panels. Being at noon, there is a panel on CBS’ longest running multi-camera sitcom in history, The Big Bang Theory after televising their final episode on May 16th. The contributing writer, Adam Faberman and Amanda Conner and Palmiotti discuss everything Big Bang Theory. It is bitter sweet for me as a fan since I have been watching The Big Bang Theory since freshman year in collage in 2008 (I was 18 years old then).
At 3pm begins the 35th anniversary of Transformers. It’s not just a panel, it’s a gathered celebration with the entire voice cast of Transformers. On top of that is the Stan Lee tribute. What would a comic con be without some mentioning of the iconic Stan Lee. Several esteemed guests gave tribute to the man who influenced and inspired generations of comic book fans, creators and the legacy he left.
Every year, at different conventions, I am impressed with the artists in artist alley. This year at CCR is no different. My excited is when artists create Sailor Moon fan gear and enamel pins.
The Disney Pin booth always draw the most attention at any convention. The Chibi Iron Man caught my eye the most especially after the release of Avengers: Endgame.
I did however purchase two pins: an Iron Man enamel pin and a Genie enamel pin.
I did expect to see a lot more Avengers. Iron Man, Captain America related merchandise. However, I did spot an amazing detail figure of the Infinity Gauntlet, Captain America and Iron Man. These are definitely a must for any fan and collector.
In addition, I learned about a new gummy by VPN Bytes. They are a new company selling gummies essentially for gamers. This definitely caught my interest being a fit nerd. The gummies helps protects from blue light and eye strain, increase focus and mental fatigue, helps with mental focus combining Ginseng and Ginkgo Biloba. It doesn’t taste to bad either.
Overall, Comic Con Revolution definitely has potential to be a convention for the Inland Empire. If you go to conventions, support your local artists at artist alley or at least stop by and have a cool conversation. I do hope this conventions grows to where it can have the same good reputation as ALA.
