Back in August when we began the Wikia Battle of the Fantasy Foods bracket tournament, we promised that we’d take the Final Four foods and serve them live from a New York Comic Con food truck. This past weekend, we delivered on that promise!
Behold - the Wikia Fantasy Food Truck!
We drove this beautifully wrapped truck onto the floor of the Javits Center in New York City, and served these tasty fantasy treats to the crowd: Gravity Falls’ Smile Dip, Fallout’s Nuka Cola, Adventure Time’s Bacon Pancakes, and Waframe’s Greedy Milk. We added one bonus item - the Fantasia Meat the Band-wich - in honor of Disney’s Fantasia game being demoed at our truck.
Here are quick descriptions of each item:

So it is Friday night and that means another day gone by and Saturday is going to be that most chaotic of the days since that is the day that it is expected to have the highest turnout based on trends in past conventions. I hope to see lost of new and amazing cosplayers on the floor and hope to take their pictures to relay their awesomeness.
Signing off for now.

Somerville’s Artisan’s Asylum plans to invade New York Comic Con with their latest creation: MegaBot.
The thirteen foot tall battle-bot is making its first public appearance at the 'con, and while shipping restrictions limited it to "just" 13 feet - the finished product aims to be even taller. In its current form, the 'bot is capable of firing a variety of giant paintball-like munitions up to 100 yards at around 120mph, but its engineers have big plans after their first public showing.
A Kickstarter campaign is in the works, the success of which would mean more MegaBots, and MegaBot battles in the future. Who doesn't want MegaBot battles??
Word has it the team will be located right next to the Marvel Display, and we're thinking they will be ha…
