This is part of my ongoing coverage of San Diego Comic-Con 2014.  This is most definitely the most important Comic-Con appearance for Prop Store since their first exhibit back in 2008.  They have managed to get a sizable upgrade in space from The Powers That Be at Comic-Con for 2014, and they have put all of that additional square footage to brilliant use, with a more open design and really elegant work in displaying their rare props and costumes with beautiful lighting.  With the added visibility, Prop Store is using the opportunity to get the word out about their first live auction even later this year, to be held in London in October.

San Diego Comic-Con 2014: Profiles in History Exhibitor Booth (#SDCC)

This is part of my ongoing coverage of San Diego Comic-Con 2014.  As per tradition, Hollywood memorabilia auction house Profiles in History are exhibiting at their usual space, Booth #1605.  I’ve been attending Comic-Con since 1987, and have been covering it on the Original Prop Blog since 2008, and if I’m honest, I would say this is their most disappointing showing to date.  The entire back wall are costumes for the Expendables franchise (which, if you haven’t seen the film(s), isn’t too exciting).  With what little space is left, there is not too much to impress… and I think that this is maybe the second or third year running where the big promo is a signing from Sean Astin.

I am in London currently, and had an opportunity to drop by the fantastic new “Bond in Motion” exhibit at London Film Museum in Covent Garden.  The brilliant exhibition features cars used in James Bond films over the past 50 years, as well as some key movie props and costumes from the 007 franchise.  I’ve always been a huge fan of London Film Museum and their mission, and as always they have put together a great collection of film memorabilia in a classy and artful way – they are really the best in the business when it comes to displaying pop culture artifacts.
