Following last year's display of Batmobiles, Warner Bros. Entertainment. has returned to San Diego's Hilton San Diego Bayfront hotel park for "Lawn Con," a family-friendly event space featuring music, eating areas and prominent DC Comics, LEGO and Warner Bros. Animation displays. Set to run through the duration of Comic-Con on July 18-21, Lawn Con showcases 2-3 story-tall Teen Titans Go! balloons, approximately 1:1 scale LEGO builds of Batman, Scooby-Doo's Mystery Machine and even a life-size LEGO Bag End bringing the Hobbit Lego set to life. Down the street, Cartoon Network's also blown up Regular Show's Mordecai and Rigby with a big balloon display.

Ronzo's kept things classic, sculpting iconic Avengers like Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America and Thor, sometimes dressed as a cigar-chomping clown Nick Fury. And even though I have a history of coulrophobia these balloon versions of Earth's Mightiest Heroes help to ease my impression of the entertainers.
Now that Wolverine's a movie star and all, lots of people are attempting to imitate the just so-so CGI of his trademark claws by making their own with spring-loaded arm sheaths, bladed brass knuckles, and even a wearable version made out of balloons,
