— PDG Productions presents a highlight video from the Salt Lake City Comic Con 2014. The event was sold out with over 120,000 attendees and was closed down on several occasions by the fire marshal for safety reasons.

Salt Lake Comic Con broke its own record as the best-attended convention in Utah and the largest per-capita comic con in North America. Special guests included Stan Lee, Leonard Nimoy (via Skype), Stephen Amell, Manu Bennett, John Barrowman, Ron Perlman, Bruce Campbell, Alan Tudyk, Eliza Dushku, Simon Helberg, Lou Ferrigno, Barbara Eden, Danny Glover, Jon Heder and over 100 other guests.

Salt Lake Comic Con 2015, the third annual Salt Lake Comic Con event, is scheduled for September 24-26, 2015. Salt Lake Comic Con co-founders Dan Farr and Bryan Brandenburg intend for the event to be “bigger and better than ever”. The event will utilize the entire Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City and will expand the popular “KidCon” section with more kid and family friendly booths, displays, panels and activities. Speaking about the event, Brandenburg also stated that “the real depth of this event is the myriad of features, cosplayers, parties, panels and entertainment that will engage and captivate our fans for three solid days.” Special Guests will include Chris Evans (actor), Ian Somerhalder, Felicia Day, John Barrowman, Alex Kingston, Sean Astin, Anthony Daniels, Morena Baccarin, Scott Wilson, Kristin Bauer van Straten, Robbie Amell, Walter Koenig, Linda Blair, Daniel Cudmore, Vic Mignogna, Emmanuelle Vaugier, Christopher Gorham, Austin St. John, Joel Hodgson, Bill Corbett, Trace Beaulieu, Frank Conniff, Jim Butcher, Timothy Zahn, James Dashner, R. A. Salvatore, Terry Brooks, Richard Paul Evans, Kevin Hearne with at least 200 more celebrities from the worlds of film, television, comic books and literature to be announced.

Salt Lake Comic Con FanX Experience 2014 – I Like Airsoft.com

Friday, August 1st, 2014

Salt Lake City Comic Con, yes we have a comic book convention too! This particular one is called “Comic Con FanX”, it’s the Fan Experience for all of those that wanted to go out and become a little star struck by film and television celebrities such as Patrick Stewart and the cast of Star Trek the Next Generation.

Comic book conventions are full of Cosplayers (Costume Players) many enjoy attending the con merely to show off their stuff. Many are store bought costumes of well known super hero’s or characters, while I personally think that even more are hand made and less known and more obscure. However, the quality of some of these handmade costumes and props are amazing!

Shades as the assault soldier from Battlefield 4 and Ghost; this time as Master Chief from the Halo Xbox video games wander the halls as they are swarmed with people wanting photos.

Thursday, September 12th, 2013

Comic Con 2013 in Salt Lake City Utah was a blast! it was a first for our state and we knew there would be some interest but didn’t know it would explode with as much enthusiasm for cosplay and geekdome that it did. I Like Airsoft was along for the ride. Shades escorts us through the exhibit hall in this video to find some interesting characters with great results! From “Cosplayers” to tactical operators, oh yeah and some pretty good lookin’ chicks are found along the way.

Also, Our new friends at “Operation Underground Railroad” gave us some information about their new organization and also invite us to join in their fight against child sex slavery. More information on their organization can be found at their websites:

In addition there may be a quickie featured player near the end of the video 😉 so stay tuned for that one. ( This video isn’t fully “Airsoft” I know, but we love to report on cool stuff such as this, and this happens to be something we enjoy. We challenge those who don’t know much about Airsoft but are competitive and enjoy learning new tactics to investigate this awesome, growing and somewhat underground sport)
