IBV Children’s Day – 01/09/2018

IBV Children’s Day – 01/09/2018, Durban Exhibition Centre, Durban

This was a charity event where we were invited by our friends at Ster-Kinekor to bring along some of our Cosplay friends and spend the day making a few thousand less fortunate kids feel special!

It was an amazing day filled with fun, movies and super heroes for the kids and I think the adults in attendance, including ourselves, had a great time as well!

Special thanks to the cosplayers who came out in support of this worthy cause and to Ster-Kinekor for inviting us to be part of this event.

 

Check out some images from the event below:

Comic Con Africa 2018

  1. The Launch

In late January 2018, we received a call from a Reed Exhibitions representative inviting us for the Media Launch of Comic Con Africa. It was all very hush at that stage, so we couldn’t help but be skeptical. It was only in early February that the whispers turned into full-on excitement, and soon enough, our adventure began! You can check out our road trip to the launch which eventually got us on the road to Comic Con Africa!

2. The Build Up

During the course of the last few months and as soon as our dreams of attending became a reality, we were back and forth between Johannesburg & Durban. The Reed Exhibitions team made us feel welcome on every occasion and allowed us to be part of one of their regular influencer meetings as well as the planned exhibitor briefing a week later. Being from Durban, both these meetings were essential for us!

Final Influencer Meeting: 18/07/2018

Exhibitor Briefing: 25/07/2018

 

3. The Durban Activation

On August 25th 2018, we held Durban Super Hero day at Westville Mall with an official member of the Comic Con Africa team in attendance! One lucky Durbanite won a pair of VIP Hospitality tickets to Comic Con Africa by taking part in the days festivities!

Deadpool Review

I am not going to lie, I have been waiting for this movie for almost a decade so maybe my view maybe a little skewed, but then again when it comes to Deadpool you kinda need a skewed view to truly appreciate him.

In a world now filled with superheroes and world building, we get the refreshing enema in the form of Wade Wilson, the fan favourite Merc with a Mouth (and thank God it aint sworn shut).

The movie lives up the the well marketed hype and then some, even the opening credits reminds you, you aint in Kansas no more Dorothy.

The movie keeps the plot simple, while some might find that a bit boring for a Deadpool movie I felt it was necessary otherwise it would have distracted the average movie goer from the oddity (shout out to my boy ) of the movie itself. and that’s what Tim Miller has done well here, stayed true to the core character without alienating the general audience. But that’s not only what he and star Ryan Reynolds do well. They show us they can do X-Men better than X-Men, case in point Colossus. Never has the character been better depicted, from the thick Russian accent to the physique and his humble persona.

I will admit the villains were pretty underdeveloped but the movie makes you forget that with the well placed wit and humour… oh the humour, always the right dosage, always the right time.

In short Deadpool is a fun filled ride that’s the perfect break from all the intense franchise and their sometimes convoluted shares universe. You don’t need to catch up on 7 movies to know what is going on, you don’t need to buy a mountain load of back issues to understand the character. All you need is a barrel of popcorn and large soda and you will get your moneys worth.

The movie gets a slightly biased 5/5 simply for being totally original when the only options where dark or light. Being grey has never been so colourful.  Oh and to my Deadpool fans….

Events

From time to time Project Mayhem Collectibles & Action Figures team up with various Geek Loving Communities to bring you awesome events and experiences close to home!

 

These events form part of our growing relationships with larger companies like Ster Kinekor Gateway in Durban & ITEN TV, who along with The Batcave Comics N Games from Hillcrest in Durban, we successfully hosted a special screening of Avengers Age of Ultron in IMAX 3D on the opening weekend in April 2015. The event was a huge success and coupled with a Cosplay event and prize giveaways and a major month long social media campaign, we had to try to do this again for the people of Durban!

 

Since then, we have successfully hosted and been part of many events in Durban, including ICON Durban, ComicEx, CAGED and Geekville!
