Day 561

Day 561 June 25th

Autographed Minimates

A couple weeks ago I attended a local comic con for the first time.  This show started off as an all anime con but 3 years ago they added comics to it and are morphing it into a more entertainment con like most cons are now a days.  The previous 2 years I had people ever so politely have their weddings on that weekend and therefore could not attend…I was not going to let that happen this year lol! 

One of the draws for this con was actor Aaron Douglas, whom some will know from his role of Chief Galen Tyrol on Battlestar Galactica.  It just happened that I had gotten the early BSG wave that had not one but two Minimates versions of his character for dirt cheap.  So since I had these and he was going to be at the con I had to get them signed!

I realized I have a small little collection of autographed Minimates.  These 2 sets, the Walt Simonson signed Stormbreaker set from SDCC last year and of course my most favourite is one of the Death of Jean DeWolf saga wave signed by my all time favourite writer who I got to meet last year, Peter David!
