Based on the Google stats, one of my post popular posting times is right after SDCC. I can't imagine why...(close sarcasm tag here).
Honestly, SDCC this year was shitty for me in most respects. The lines were out of control. Too many people in attendance. Those fucking bags that go on people's backs that they fill with poster tubes that clip you in the face as you try to move through the hall...THE EXCLUSIVES. So many bad experiences this year.
The sole saving factor this year was the people. Met lots of good people this year, saw old friends, had good times, even fanboy-nerd-raged on some industry folks (sorry, you-know-who!).
For instance, here is a random out of the hotel window shot of a random crowd of people:
Meanwhile, in the room...
A mess of toys and food and water bottles! And smell. Such a horrific smell.
More toys that were picked up by people at the con.
One of the only cool things was Comedy Central set up a special South Park area in a parking lot across the way. Had some good times here. Should have gotten a Mitch Connor tattoo.
And, presenting the SENSATIONAL CHARACTER FIND OF 2011!
Really, this piece generated more discussion than was rational. Not bad for an obscure GALOOB toy from the 90's.
