Video: TNTM – SoldierCon 2018 Walkthrough

People love car shows. They also love comic cons. SoldierCon at Fort Bliss put these two awesome things together.

The featured guests for 2018 were actor Noel G. and Pawn Stars toy expert, Johnny Jimenez. Noel G. has been in some great movies like Fast and Furious, Walking Dead, and Training Day.

There was a game room with Glitch Gaming Center doing the digital games and Military Gamer Supply doing the analog games. The Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) was giving demonstrations of their live action fighting.

The comic con section had some great artists and vendors, and the car show is definitely the main attraction. There were so many jaw-dropping cars/trucks, I don’t know how they can pick a winner.

As the sun set on the first day of SoldierCon 2018, I can tell you it was solid event, and here’s to hoping they build on that success for 2019.

But the best news of all: you can still get in on the action on Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

First-Ever SoldierCon at Fort Bliss Unites Fans of Cars, Comics, and Cosplay

Freedom Crossing at Fort Bliss will be the Southwest’s center for all things automobile and comic book related this weekend, as SoliderCon takes over the post.

The SoldierCon is the first-ever Comic Convention with a car show at Ft. Bliss. During the weekend, there will be five different events: Eat/Sleep/Drift Car Show (Saturday), Gaming, Live Action Role Playing, and Cosplay Contest (Sunday), and the comic book convention both days.

In addition to comic artists and vendors, there will be a free film festival highlighting amateur talent of various sorts including professional comic books artists Free Isabelo and Rudy Vasquez. A weekend panel is also planned for the event.

Featured guest and renowned toy expert Johnny Jimenez Jr. – from TV’s Pawn Stars – will be on-hand to sell toys or appraise the public’s toys.

The Eat, Sleep, Drift Car Show will feature the region’s top builds and show-stopping vehicles. Entrance to the Car Show area is free, as is the parking, in and around the area.

Special guest Noel Gugliemi (Noel G.), known for his roles in The Fast and the Furious and Lowriders, will be in the comic convention area.

As for the Cosplay Contest, that will be conducted inside the Freedom Crossing Food Court, with a stage and runway.

Military Gaming Supply will take over the store front once belonging to Toys-R-Us, and fill the facility with a multitude of gaming tables. In addition, they will bring two interactive areas for their Space Ship Simulators (2), where participants can navigate a virtual spaceship on missions.

For the duration of the weekend’s event, there will be ease of access into Ft. Bliss, only requiring a Driver’s License.
