Greetings, true believers!! The 3rd annual Comikaze event in LA just wrapped up, and WOW what a time it was. This event has grown from 35,000 people in 2011 to 50,000 plus! With scores of pop culture celebrities on hand; from Elvira to Weird Al, this con has it all, including a little Legacy. We even had our own panel where members of the Legacy team were interviewed about the state of modern practical effects.
We had an AWESOME time, and got to show uber fans some of the coolest Marvel props and effects we have had the pleasure to work on. Marvel suits, characters and maquettes based on Stan Lee’s work on display at the Comikaze Con. Including Legacy Effects work from “Iron-Man” “Iron-Man 2” “Thor” “The Avengers” “Iron-Man 3” and “Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier”. The WIRED Mech even made a guest appearance and interacted with the crowd. Don’t worry, he didn’t try to destroy too many people this time.
And, who’s this gigantic fellow? No, not the green guy, the big “hulking” guy standing next to him. Don’t make him angry, you wouldn’t like him when he gets angry.
We even had staff artist Jamie Grove doing a painting demo in collaboration with the Stan Winston School at their booth next to our Legacy booth. The WIRED Mech hung out in the background to make sure Jamie didn’t screw up.
It was so cool to be part of such an amazing event with such an iconic industry legend. We can’t wait for next year! Thanks Stan!
