First off, if you didn't have anything to do last weekend in Los Angeles (which less face it, how could you not have something to do in Los Angeles?) then you should have been at the Long Beach Comic Expo. Even if you did have something to do, you should have been there anyway! It was an amazing experience and if you're not into giant crowds of people to see awesome comic book content, then this was the place to be.
For starters, after the tragic news about Leonard Nimoy's passing, they held a moment of silence in his honor while everyone held their hands up in Nimoy's iconic "Live Long and Prosper" gesture.
But that's not all that made LBCE (Long Beach Comic Expo) awesome. Are you a fan of Back to the Future or Jurassic Park? Well, this was the place to be for geeking out. Why? Because they had actual car models from those movies and more. Don't believe me? Take a look...
Pretty cool right? Well, then it's no surprise that inside LBCE was just as cool as the outside. Other than awesome panels, there was some great booths to visit. Everyone attending the expo was super polite and loved talking everything nerd. Which is definitely something you don't get as much at bigger Comic events. Plus, the cosplays were amazing! I'm sad to say I wasn't able to get pictures of some of the super amazing cosplayers that were there or the professionals at the cosplay corner but I bet you'll enjoy these anyway.
It wouldn't be a Con or Expo without your local Stormtrooper telling you to move along.
Lastly, this wouldn't be a good Moviepilot post without the occasional Minion popping up somewhere...Well, apparently the Moviepilot office isn't the only Minion fan. Check out this awesome Minion art from the LBCE!!!
Is that not the most epic minion art you've ever seen?
Even though you missed this Long Beach Comic Expo, be sure to to visit them this Fall, September 12th and 13th. If you're not a Los Angeles resident, maybe now is a good time to book a trip!
