The Buzz Report: Special Report: Comic-Con 2010

5:21 /

What with the movies, TV shows, comics, video games and amazing costumes, Molly Wood has pretty much died and gone to geek heaven.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:14 >> Hi, I'm Molly Wood. Welcome to the Buzz Report, special report from Comic-Con. Comic-Con is about so much more than comics, as you know. There's video games, TV, movies. Speaking of video games, how about a little Red Carmageddon. ^M00:00:28 [ Music ] ^M00:00:37 >> And then of course Comic-Con is all about promoting movies. There's movies that are coming out, like "Battlefield LA," "Green Hornet," kind of owns this show. Then there's movies that are just cool and geeky like Transformers. You got people getting in and out of pods for aliens because it's coming out on Blu-ray, and there's this nice big booth for Tan, featuring the Light Cycle, which I think I'm totally going to steal because it looks hellefast.Can you turn that off real quick? TV, big deal here at Comic-Con. "Lost" was pretty much made here. "True Blood" is huge. CBS is premiering its new show, "Hawaii Five-O" here. And then AMC has this new show called "Walking Dead." I want to go now. Can we go now? Are we done? Also, "Big Bang Theory," huge at Comic-Con. Who knew? >> Our whole universe was in a hot dense state, Then nearly fourteen billion years ago expansion started. Wait. The Earth began to cool, The autotrophs began to drool, Neanderthals developed tools, We built a wall >> Another huge trend at Comic-Con, toys, figurines and collectibles. For example, collectibles for the very serious collector. ^M00:01:50 [ Music ] ^M00:02:00 >> What are you guys in line for? >> The Hasbro booth here, Hasbro's toy shop. You needed a ticket all weekend, but right now there's no ticket needed. So no fight. >> Are there actually -- are there new toys being released that you're excited about? >> Yes, it's a pre-release, right? >> Yeah, they're debuting a lot of the, some special edition toys and pre-releases on the new Sgt Slaughter figure from GI Joe. They're debuting here, and then I guess they're going to be available on Hasbro's Web site, or that's what they've done every other year. >> So normally you've had to get a ticket -- how? >> You actually -- I went through this yesterday. You have to go upstairs, wait in line for about two hours to get a ticket to wait in line for another five hours to get a ticket. So it's really not worth it, unless you want to go put it on eBay and make money. But I just want Sgt Slaughter, so I'm good. ^M00:02:42 [ Music ] ^M00:02:52 >> Also turns out Comic-Con is kind of hot, as in porny. Holy Buttcheeks, Batman, it's Marilyn Monroe with Mickey Mouse boobies. Buttcheeks. ^M00:03:10 [ Music ] ^M00:03:17 >> Although it may not seem like it anymore, Comic-Con is in fact still about comics -- actually, super serious comics. We are currently in the presence of greatness. In Wonder Woman greatness alone, they have in this glass case the first appearance of Wonder Woman, Wonder Woman's first cover, and the first issue of "Wonder Woman Plus." In this case there's like the first Superman, which is going to go on auction, the first Batman -- it's unbelievable. And I'm not going to touch anything, because most of this costs as much as my house. >> Wonder Woman, Wonder Woman. All the world's waiting for you. >> The other thing everybody will tell you about Comic-Con is that it is all about the unbelievable costumes. ^M00:04:05 [ Music ] ^M00:04:21 >> Thank you. Man. You know, yesterday I got my picture taken a lot as Molly Wood, hosted the Buzz Report and Buzz Out Loud. But then I put this costume on and everyone wants to take my picture as Wonder Woman. Okay. >> All the world's waiting for you. >> Thank you, have a good time. Have I mentioned how much I love it here? Okay, so you've got your movies, your TV, your comic books, your costumes. And then there's just everything else. ^M00:04:50 [ Music ] ^M00:05:04 >> And that's it for the Buzz Report. I'm Molly Wood, thanks for watching. Just leave me here. I'm with my people. Off with their head. >> Wonder Woman. >> I like it.
