Yesterday was the first day of New York Comic-Con, and we were right there in the thick of it. We ran into some great cosplayers, which you can check out on our Instagram at @TheMarySue. You can follow our adventures throughout all of our social media using #TMSNYCC.

We also spoke with the Star Wars Hasbro team about their latest line, which features figurines for Rogue One. Steve Evans, the head of design, and Joe Ninivaggi, the marketing director, were on hand to answer our questions about the lack of female representation in the past.

In honor of Throwback Thursday, we hit up the Nickelodeon booth to try out their Legends of the Hidden Temple virtual reality experience, as well as answer some trivia questions.

We’ve got lots more headed your way, so stick around. Plus, we’ll be live from the Comic-Con floor tonight at 5:15 to chat about the great things we saw. Drop in and say hello!
