    Val Kilmer at Wizard World this weekend at Columbus, OH. Please bring him Flipshot!

    With all the hoopla going on with all the great announcements from Power-Con, I wanted to mention that Val Kilmer will be at Wizard World in Columbus, OH this weekend. Just wanted to know if anyone on the org is going. If you are and have a MOTUC Icarius (Flipshot) figure, I think it would be cool if you can bring the helmet-less head sculpt at WW and introduce the figure to Val if you get to see him. Heck, even take a picture of him holding the figure if you can.

    Exactly. If he was the inspiration for Flipshot he'll be fully in his own right to sue. Unauthorized usage of his likeness.
    200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!

    Many people also saw Arnold Schwarzeneggers likeness in Icariusī headsculpt, so I guess the similarity is there, but not enough to warrant a sue.

    I'm going to Wizard World Columbus this week. I just might do that. Or I might see if any of the vendors have a FLIPSHOT and show it to him then.

    If Kilmer sues, say goodbye to Castle Grayskull.

    i agree with the others this is a bad idea and could cause the end of the line.

    I am going this weekend also but yeah it would probably be a bad idea to show him the figure.

    So, is the plan to keep Val Kilmer from finding out about the Flipshot figure and MOTUC? How would that work?

    yeah, not a good idea. would not like the line to end because of a likeness law suit.

    I would love to go seeing as I live in Dayton - not sure I can make it.
    Saving for next summer's Star Trek convention anyway.

    if I were going, I would have him sign my Tombstone Blu-Ray "I'm your huckleberry"

    I went and had a blast. I got too many (yeah, right!) Masters of the Universe Classics stuff. I couldn't get close to Val and he along with every celeb there had a "No Photo" rule.
