Welp, I made it back from the con. we had a great time and all went very smooth, which is unusual for me. We arrived early because the convention center has really crappy parking so it's show up early, or walk a while. I am glad this is the last show at this civic center and they are moving to a larger location since the show has grown. I figured we would be in line forever for Olmos, but we timed it where we were some of the first in the door so we got to his table within twenty minutes of getting inside. Olmos was very fan-friendly and took a minute to talk to my five year old. we had him sign my viper and a card and took a photo with him. We then moved to luciana Carro's table and again got a lucky break since she was just setting-up and did not have a line yet. She remembered me from the other shows and the photo I had her sign of us together from a couple of years ago, she remembered seeing it posted on her fanboard. She signed the pic and we took off to the star Wars guys area and got a pic signed for a friend who could not make it. We went to the dealer room and found a few bargains. I found a Classic BSG colonial Pistol that I had been looking for and grabbed a new t-shirt so i could keep my wardrobe updated. later we went to the Olmos Q&A which was very interesting. he talked about turning down a roll as captain of the Enterprise, and talked about Blade Runner. He was not interested in doing BSG unless they put it in the world of Blade Runner. he said he felt BR was the ultimate sci-fi movie and the only way he would do sci-fi again was to revisit that type of world. He said that he told the BSG powers that be that he was outta there the first time they brought in some four-eyed space monster. he also had some interesting things to say about the worlds problems. we got some good pics and cool toys. here are a few pics.
