Sunday's DragonCon pictures are up now, and you can see more cool costumes and exciting events. On our third day at the convention, Halman and Hades got an ice cream cake, and LOAF and Shades had a long discussion about the Wing Commander timeline.

During the parade and while walking around in uniform, we met a surprising number of people who recognized us and shouted out how excited they were to see Wing Commander fans represented.

TurboTim has created a couple artsy Wing Commander ships with Legos and clay. The Lego fighter is an impressive Longbow bomber. His clay ship appears to be an Arrow after it passed too close to a star.

Spanish Special Operations are Extra Special
After seeing the Spanish WC2 that Christian Klein recently acquired, the next natural question was whether DROSoft had also localized the Special Operations. The answer is yes, and it comes in an awesome double pack just like the Spanish Secret Missions! Both are in the same box with the game summaries translated side-by-side on the rear of the packaging.
