Ilu Ilu x Battle Aid Toy x Wrestling Event

Tonight's event was truly like no other I've ever attended. It's also the most fun I've ever had in Japan. Where else can you get new toys, meet up with friends, and run like hell to avoid being dismantled by flying wrestlers???
The event, called Battle Aid, was held at 1st Ring in Shinkiba.
Let's start with a look at the toys.
Ilu Ilu brought four versions of his new wrestling characters, which were designed and made for this event.
These sets are called Dynamic Fight and feature the characters Wild Cross and Great Ozeki.

SDCC 2013: Godzilla Encounter

To build up excitement for the upcoming Godzilla movie (2014 release), Legendary Pictures went to great lengths to deck out an offsite building in San Diego for fans to check out. Time stamped tickets were distributed at the LP booth in the con.

The site was something of an homage to previous Godzilla films, along with some tantalizing looks at what the creature will look like in the new film. That part was absolutely off-limits to photography, so all I can share is a look at the first part of the exhibit.

Here's a sampling of the cosplayers who caught my eye:
