Hey there my kind readers, so as we’ve previously said more than a couple of times…..this week will find the NY Comic Con taking over the Javits Center on the West Side

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I am going to keep this editorial closing brief since I still have a pile of Con related content to serve up and also since I am not much the collector of this particular series of figurines. I do love them though and think I might need an Alien King or Queen for my media desk to be imposing over the laptop as I blog away into the wee hours of the night. What do you think of these offerings? Will you be building your own collection of these terrifying creatures from the depths of space? Chime in down below to let me know and be sure to stop by their booth during the convention because they will have these and much more for you to examine up close. Don’t forget to follow PiercingMetal.com on the assorted social networks since I am planning on attending all four days of the event. Until next time.
