Thrift shop haul, Godzilla, Giveaways and more....

So...Godzilla finally opened in theaters with a lot of hype behind it. It wasn't half bad. After that last Godzilla movie in the late 90's, I didn't have my hopes set very high. The movie just came out today so I'm not gonna give any spoilers. All I will say is that this was a fun movie. It started a little slow, but when it picked up, it was pretty epic.

I went and did me a little thrift shopping before the movie too. Take a look at the haul. Pretty cool stuff, I must say...
Though I dont have a Laser Disc player, I couldn't pass up on these gems! I also scored a copy of Edward Scissorhands, but gave it to my sister for her Johnny Depp collection.

Definitely had to get Episodes 4, 5, and 6!!!

A couple nice soundtracks to add to my record collection. E.T. is the only movie that's ever made me cry...granted, I was like 2 years old. I've always been a Bond fan too, so I coudn't NOT grab these.

DVDs DVDs DVDs....Yeah, that's the classic Transformers the Movie. The animated one, not the lame Richard Bay, Shia LeBeouf garbage.

I posted Ram Man on Twitter/Facebook/Instagram already, but I had to share him again!

I love thrift shopping. I also love Crypticon, which is next weekend in Seattle. Crypticon is the place to be for fans of the Horror genre. There's always plenty of great vendors, authors, artists, and celebrities to keep you busy all weekend. I'm looking forward to catch up with old friends, and to meet a couple celeb guests. This year they have one of my favorites in Doug Jones. I'm really stoked to get my Hellboy movie poster signed by him. I got it signed by Ron Perlman at Emerald City Comic Con earlier this year. Gonna make sure to meet Reggie Lee, also known as officer Wu on NBC's Grimm, and Roy from SyFy's FaceOff. Be sure to send me a tweet or find some other way to track me down if you make it to Crypticon. Unfortunately I will only be there Saturday, but would still like to hang out with everyone. Find me, friends.

Before I take off, I want to throw some ideas I came up with out there. I'm thinking giveaways. I'm going to have contests with fun nerdy prizes like action figures, signed stuff, comics, art, and more. I'm going to do the givaways once I hit certain numbers of follower and readers here, on Twitter, and in the Comic Book Swap Meet Facebook group. I'm thinking the first prize will go out when I hit 800 followers on Twitter and 200 members of the Comic Book Swap Meet group, so if you like free stuff, share, Retweet, spread the word, or whatever else gets the word out. Oh, use the hashtag #ComicBookSwapMeet sometimes too. Let's make it a thing. know the scoop...If you come up with any intersting ideas or have suggestions or know where to find us.
