It should not say "pop culture enthusiasts". It should say fanboys. SDCC is more about pop culture.

There's a stretch in the southern part of Detroit where the highway is up with the smoke stacks that can rival Gary.

I'm sure India has anywhere in the US beat easily...but US wise, Saganaw Michigan is just gawd awful...drove thru on a detour once on the way home from Mack Island, and wanted to vomit...the vomit woulda smelled better...

Beef Jello?

Hopefully ;) *laughing emoticon*

And then you probably had to pass through the wonderful smells of auto paint in Flint. I bet we have cancer.

I've been in Flint for some concerts...it's not as bad as Sag was, but it's awful in its own right...Flint is scary as hell though...and I've been to Detroit mutable times...

I'm so excited, never thought I would go to one. My son and I are already planning. It's only a couple of hours for us. We have some friends in Indy that my wife has been bugging me to see, so free digs and happy wife +2 bonus points!

Some of the NF figures could be pretty cool, and then they could all suck.

Yeah, gonna reserve judgement. Interested to see where they go with some of these, but it could be a giant clusterfuck.

I do like Night Force. I will probably get these.
Not sure if I will go. If then I will only go for a day trip.

Letal = http://www.yojoe.com/action/int/br-letal.shtml is just a repaint of a Frag Viper.
The club has already done a Mortal. http://www.yojoe.com/action/06/cobramortal.shtml I wonder if they will make him chromed.

Looks like Crazylegs was replaced by Hit & Run on the roster... http://www.yojoe.com/action/subteams/nightforce.shtml He could very well be the paradrop figure then.

Night Shade is a possible vehicle exclusive.
Night Ray (hydrofoil) is possible since they did make the Tiger Force in the past.
Night Boomer we all know the new Skystriker mold is out there.

Someone at HT has uncovered artwork by the artist...

http://comiconart.com/artist/Jimbo-Salgado

Speculation on what figures will be used....
Resolute Baroness with new head is obvious for Cobra Asp.
Cobra Mortal looks to be ultimate Snake Eyes http://www.yojoe.com/action/11/snakeeyes54.shtml with different legs.
Frag Viper & Letal is obviously going to use POC Firefly's helmet.
Charbroil must be using Retaliation Joe troopers's vest.
Plus it seems the Night Boomer is more of a possibility with a female pilot sketch. Looks like Lady Jaye with pilot Scarlett's gear.

To Club: just show us the figures already! It would be prudent to show off what they look like. You may just get more attendees then. :p
