Started early for us since we wanted to get to the city and our hotel before Peter’s first appointment.
We got into the city and settled before going over to the Javits center for the convention.
Started with a press junket for “Epic Mickey: The Power of 2” where we saw all kinds of neat stuff for the game. This one is going to blow the first game out of the water.
Caroline and I walked the floor of the exhibitors’ hall and saw a lot of neat stuff and ran into a number of friends. Caroline went to the Nintendo booth to see if she could get this exclusive Pokemon for her game only to find out that the place to do it was outside the building. We made plans to go to that later in the day and proceeded to wander the rest of the building until we got back to Artist Alley and Peter’s table (BB-1).
We walked to the Pokemon venue only to find a line around the block and some to get in. It was only because of a very nice young lady who works for Nintendo and understood that we had limited time that we got in at all. Wish I had gotten her name but many good points in her book for being so understanding. Caroline got her Pokemon that she wanted so bad. She also looked at various other pokemon related product and meet Pikachu. A happy Caroline indeed.
We went with Peter to his panel with Stan Lee and had a nice chat with various people I have met over the years including a number I had met at SDCC. Caroline was polite but hungry so we survived the food court and got some lunch. Then back to the table we went and explain so many times that my voice was going that Peter was at the Marvel booth but would be back by 5:30. He managed to get back sooner than that allowing Caroline and I to walk back to the hotel were we met Caroline’s sister Gwen. Caroline and Gwen are having a sleep over tonight which is nice because it gives the sisters some time together.
So I am back at the hotel typing this up. Peter and I have dinner plans with some friends of ours, which will be very nice. Then it is up early and back to the convention for Day 2.
I am very grateful to the young lady who helped us today.
