Exhibit Life Size Statues

Mike Ferry and his wife Ann started sharing their life size statues with the comic world for pictures and for a lot of fun.

They collect donations on a voluntary basis only because not everything at a comic convention should cost more than a smile.

They currently have the following life size figures:

Marvel – Deadpool (butt signed by Morena Baccarin), Rocket, and teenage Groot (actual size close to Rocket)

Arkham Asylum video game – Batman and Harley Quinn

Aliens – Alien egg with poseable face hugger

Gremlins – Stripe, the flasher, anonymous gremlin

Star Wars – Yoda, Watto, and Anakin Skywalker

Hero Initiative is a charity near and dear to their hearts.

They learned about Hero Initiative at Gem City Comic Con about 2 years before Josh Medors passed away from Cancer.

His story and many others can be see at the following website:
