    Yes. I got a text from my buddy while I was at the Padres game saying pretty much the same thing.

    Meanwhile, 4 day passes with Sneak Preview Night have sold out for Comic Con 2012 and 2013.

    The Pre-Sale for Parking for Comic Con 2012 has already started. If you pay before 5pm tomorrow, you can take advantage of their 25ct discount offer.

    Also, people have already started to line up for the Lucasfilm, Marvel, and Paramount panels. They don't plan on taking a shower until 2014. Some people have purchased burial plots just outside the convention center in case they don't make it. Naturally, space is limited.

    Has something changed and they became available?
    No, they are still not online yet. But there are 105,000 of them that haven't been purchased yet because... THEY'RE NOT ONLINE YET.

    Once again, they have had to shut down registration this morning.

    And I thought Matty.com's servers were not up to the task!

    There may be a convention where we can watch paint drying which hasn't sold out yet.

    If anyone is going to SDCC, and would be willing to help me out with the Indiana Jones exclusive set please? Of course I'd cover full cost plus shipping, plus a few dollars on top. Please pm me if you can help, I'd be reeeeeeally grateful!!
    Big thanks to DarkJedi5, TheRealDubya, obi-dad, morpheus282, Tycho and Kidhuman for great deals/trades.

    Comic-Con management (or their Facebook-posting intern) responded to someone posting the article figgy referred to earlier, and didn't dispute it.

    Well, folks, if there's only a 3-hour window for getting the tickets, during the Con, of course, and a 67% increase in the prices, I'll be bowing out. It's not that I can't afford it, I just choose to not afford it. The value of Comic-Con is not $175 per person. Period. It's cheaper to pay the markup on any exclusives I want if none of my friends can snag them for me. As for the half-price graphic novels, well, I can get them for 30% off at Amazon or Borders, and that 20% extra over the whole year doesn't make up for the difference, either.

    Making the 4-day passes cost more than the individual days is the most boneheaded, illogical business move I've ever heard of. That'd be like Disneyland charging $50 per day and $19,000 for an annual pass.

    Does anyone know if at the con we will be able to buy individual days for next year? Because for the past 7 years I have only been able to buy the whole week pass at the con. I only go Friday through Sunday so I would like to save a few bucks and not buy the whole pass.

    2012 Pre-Registration FAQ

    Where can I pre-register for 2012?

    Badges will be sold in the Douglas Pavilion at the Manchester Grand Hyatt located at 1 Market Place. It is just a short walk from the Convention Center and next to the Marriott Marquis & Marina. You may also take the free Comic-Con shuttle to the Hyatt. Pre-registration will be open Thursday - Sunday from 8:00 am to 11:00 am.

    Can I register my friend, child, or spouse without them being there?

    You may register yourself and one other person only. Children 11 and under are free, one child per paid adult badge.

    I didn't get a 2011 badge, can I still pre-register for 2012?

    You must have a 2011 badge to participate in pre-registration. Online registration for the public will open in the fall.

    Who can purchase a badge?

    All Comic-Con attendees with a valid 2011 badge may pre-register for 2012. However, 2011 Comic-Con attendees with an Exhibitor badge will not be allowed to purchase a badge during this special pre-registration sale.

    How many badges can I buy?

    You may request up to TWO pre-registration sessions per person. During each pre-registration session, you may purchase a 4-day badge with Preview Night, or a 4-day badge without Preview Night, or up to 4 single day badges without duplicated days if they are available when you get to the self-registration computer. You may not purchase two of any single day badge, i.e. you may not purchase two Saturday badges. In total, you may purchase a maximum of two 4-days or 8 single day badges.

    How many times can I go through the pre-registration line?

    An individual may participate in pre-registration only one time. You may not attempt to register multiple times or on multiple days. Your badge will be scanned during the registration process. If your individual badge is scanned for more than two purchases, all additional purchases beyond the first two will be cancelled and you may not receive a refund.

    Will all the 4-day badges with Preview Night sell-out again this year?

    2012 badge inventory will be divided between pre-registration and our open online registration in the fall. All badge categories will be available at a later date.

    How do I pay for my badge?

    2012 badges may be purchased by cash or credit card only.

    Will all of the 2012 badges sell out on Thursday?

    No. To ensure that everyone can participate in 2012 pre-registration, we will be selling an equal number of badges each day of the convention, Thursday through Sunday. However, your desired badge category may be sold out by the time you reach the front of the pre-registration line.

    I only have a 2011 Friday badge. Can I come on Thursday and buy my 2012 badge?

    No. You may only purchase a 2012 badge if you have a valid 2011 Comic-Con badge for the day you attend pre-registration.

    After I buy my badge at the Hyatt, am I confirmed for 2012?

    You will receive an e-mail confirmation of your pre-registration purchase at a later date. Your 2012 badge registration is NOT complete until you follow the instructions on this confirmation e-mail. You will be required to sign-up for a Comic-Con Member ID after the convention to complete your badge registration. Only by completing the additional instructions in the e-mail will your registration be complete. Click here for details about the new Comic-Con Member ID requirement

    Wow, every single thing there is a blithering mess. I also love the "no discount on 4-day badges", and then it's $10 off from buying 4 separate individual days.

    I'm really annoyed that you can't pre-register a badge unless you ALREADY HAVE A BADGE, what the hell is that?!? They're now essentially saying that you have to pay them money for the privilege of paying them more money. But "luckily", you can now buy a badge for a buddy, thus ensuring scalpers have a nice fat place in the party.

    Oh, and it's a self-use computer kiosk, very classy, right up there with printing photos at Target.
