    Will the new DVD boxed set episodes still be announced at Comic-Con? Do we know when that announcement will happen?

    Have fun, to all those who get to go!

    Wasn’t the lineup of the next set announced last night? Why no word yet on the Internets?

    What!? Only three comments on Comic Con??? I was there and it was a BLAST!. I was in the front row of rifftrax live a few seats from Bridgit – WOW-…the short was “shake hands with danger”, an industrial safety film. It was hilariously side splitting funny! I also got to meet and greet Mike, Bill and Kevin at the saturday autograph session. They are some of the most kind and friendly persons you’ll ever meet. They signed my dvd cover of the essentials [santa clause conquers the martians/manos:the hands of fate]. I also got TV’s Frank to sign it at the Dr floyd show – which was funny! I have to brag that I had Bridgit sign the dvd cover at rifftrax live and to the best of my knowlege it is the only five member mst3k cast signed item obtained at comic con 2009. I’ll be emailing Sampo all my photos later tonite! You should have been there..if you weren’t see you Plan 9 from outer space on the 20th of Aug.

    I sent Sampo the good pictures last night. Hope he’s not too mad that could only attach three or four pictures with each email. Total was about twenty five or twenty seven…oh forgot to mention that fan in the saturday autograph line dressed up as TORGO and his costume was spot on perfect. He even had the walk and voice down pat. The only thing missing was the Torgo theme music. DANG IT, now I can’t get the torgo’s theme outta my head.
