ToG At The Con: Day 3 At Fan Expo Dallas 2017 – The Final Day

Fan Expo Dallas 2017 – Day 3

Day 3 of Fan Expo Dallas 2017 ended and Temple of Geek departed. You can tell people were exhausted by the end of this thing. Today was my last two photo-ops and just a fan day for me.

I hit the floor and did some shopping. I purchased two Transformers that I have been looking for. I also met legendary artist Drew Struzan, the artist who created some of the most memorable movie posters ever including Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Back To The Future and more. I picked up a Star Wars Circus poster reprint and he was gracious enough to sign it for me!

 

 

Photo-Ops

Like I mentioned earlier, today was photo-op day for me. I had pre-purchased two photos Alan Tudyk and a team-up of Adam West/Burt Ward. The photos came out great (especially Alan Tudyk’s).

Celebrities

I decided to walk around a bit and check out the autograph lines. All the lines still had people swarming to meet their idols. It was packed but not as bad as Saturday. I was able to meet most of the cast of Rocky Horror Picture show.

 

Wrap-up

Day 3 was less crowded then Saturday. It was nice to be able to move around and actually enjoy some of the show. If I had one regret it would be that I wish I was able to attend some of the panels. Other than that, the show was great minus the issues that it had. I hope Fan Expo management took some notes and do a better job of managing the crowds next year.

Slade started Temple of Geek in 2012 with his friend as a podcast. Since then, it has become a lot more. His obsessions are Transformers, Star Wars, Classic Video Games, Superheroes, and comedies.

Slade’s life was turned to the Darkside when his father gave him a gift in 1985. He was presented with the leader of the Decepticons, Megatron. Since then, Slade has become a collector of the robots in disguise.

The only other thing that comes close to Slade’s love of Transformers is Star Wars. He has met a few of the cast over the years. Slade’s one goal in life is to meet with George Lucas and just discuss movies with him.
