In the summer of 2004 I was hired by Upper Deck Entertainment & DC Comics to have my Batmobile on display at Gen Con and to present the winner with his $40,000 check. I also had to walk around, meet the fans and sign autographs.
Gen Con is a huge gaming convention where people play all week long until only 2 people are left. Then those two people play until only one becomes the winner. The winner won $40,000 just for playing games all week.
This was a real fun gig. I had a great time meeting the fans, posing for pictures, signing autographs, presenting the big check to the winning player and letting him savor the moment in my Batmobile.
As you can see the Batmobile looked great on the red carpet, and like always, everyone loved it.
