I take a lot of pictures at Comic Conventions, and I have become obsessed with these doll/action figures that are everywhere at most mainstream cons. I find them strangely disturbing. This is a fairly random assortment of pictures from the last few years at San Diego Comic-Con and New York Comic-Con, I have many more. Added a few from San Diego Comic-Con 2012 & 2013  and New York Comic-Con 2012.
