Imperial Commissary Collectors Convention 2019

“Remember…the Force will be with you, always.” — Obi Wan Kenobi (A New Hope)

Imperial Commissary Collectors Convention (ICCC) was an amazing experience this year. The ICCC is an oasis for collectors, a love letter to Star Wars, and a fun ride for anyone interested in the world of sci-fi, fantasy, horror, and action. My inner child took over the moment I entered the event.

There were a host of celebrities who appeared at the convention such as Claudia Wells with the DeLorean (Back to the Future), Jason Faunt (Power Rangers), Tracy Lynn Cruz (Power Rangers), Tracy Lynn Cruz (Power Rangers), and Daniel Logan (Star Wars)

I ran into familiar faces, such as Star Wars themed group Midsouth Garrison of the 501st Legion and the Hip Hop Stormtrooper and ICCC’s phenomenal  Brent Scotchmer who left his native soil of Australia to attend and spread good vibes from down under. New addition to this fantastical fandom experience were James Azrael, curator of Horror & Sci-Fi Prop Association (HSPPA). James provided delightful conversations about the world of sci-fi and horror. He is an amazing guy with a heart of goal who is living his dream.

The band Mize and the Drive provided sweet tunes for the event. The band provided an eclectic mix of rock, soul, folk, jazz, and funk.

Last year I had a mission this year to find a piece of my childhood (and succeeded). This year my mission was to prove my suspicion that Michael is an agent of the North Pole. Although, I did find circumstantial evidence, the pure joy of this convention convinced me not to blow his cover.

I look forward to ICCC 2020.
