I'd like to see it, but it's PG-13, so I don't Chux Jr seeing it until I get a chance to. And she wants to go to the Batman TV 45th Anniversary panel the same evening, so she'll still be around at that time.

As if not having any passes didn't hurt enough already!
I would have had so many panels for Friday as well...Lego Star Wars, Hasbro Star Wars, Green Lantern animated series...oh well...

Saturday is up, and it's VERY light, a pathetically weak schedule actually, like why the hell is Friday so over-scheduled when there's so little draw on Saturday? Anyway, my Saturday schedule involves standing in line for BR20 and then sitting in BR20 for hours, but after 1:15pm, I can flexible my schedule up nicely if that's what you guys want. That said, the Kevin Smith panel is Saturday evening, at 5:45pm, so Steve, Tycho, I, and probably several of you guys as well, will be lining up for that at some point as we do every year.
I am proposing Saturday afternoon would make a fine time to get together, after 1:20pm.
This reminds me, SDCC'11 seems to be the comic-con that my mom would most want to go to. It's the first one I'm not telling her about the events because I know it'll break her heart to hear what she's missing (her mother's dementia has gotten really bad and my mom has to take daily care of her now).

1:20 Saturday would probably work for me. I might try to go to Futurama, and it gets out at 1. If I can't, well, it'll be on TV soon. (I've found that the patience to wait until something actually airs a few months later works to one's benefit with panel scheduling. )
Kinda skimming the list, I've come up with a tentative list for the first three days worth of panels. Not sure what I'll actually go to, and my daughter likely being with me the whole time is a big factor. And, yeah, I know there's some conflicts, but I'm not done:
10-11: IDW & Hasbro (room 9)
2:30-3:30: Hasbro Transformers (room 24ABC)
3:30-4:30: The Making of Transformers Prime (room 24ABC)
*--I've discovered that Chux Jr loves this show, primarily because Arcee is a main character. Given the disturbing dearth of strong female characters in kids' entertainment, I can't discourage this simply because it's crappily-written, uses the stupid Bayformers designs, and has a color palette that renders it almost unwatchable for me.
5-6: Beavis & Butt-Head (room 6A)
6-7: Voltron (Indigo Ballroom, Hilton Bayfront)
10-11: Lego Star Wars (room 7AB)
11-12: Hasbro Star Wars (room 7AB)
11-12: Tintin (hall H)
2-3: Green Lantern: The Animated Series (room 6BCF)
3:30-4:30: Thundercats Premiere (room 6A)
6-7: Batman 45th Anniversary (room 9)
8-9: Reign of the Dinosaurs (room 6DE)
*--This sounds like a more up-to-date version of Walking With Dinosaurs. Who doesn't love Walking With Dinosaurs? The ghost of Hitler, that's who.
12:15-1:00: Futurama (ballroom 20)
7-8: Fables (room 6DE)
*--This is the only panel that's definitely not for kids, but might be okay for her to sleep in. But it's one of the best series I've ever read, and I understand that attendees get inside information on the characters that doesn't actually appear in the comic.
8:30-11:30: Masquerade (various locations)
Am I blind, or is there absolutely no GIJoe-related panel at all? I might have to ask at the booth, "Is GIJoe the red-headed stepchild of Hasbro, since most of the stuff--the POC line, both IDW continuities, and Renegades--are the best the line has ever been, but they're not marketed and all the eggs seem to be in the Rise of Cobra 2 basket, despite everyone and their brother agreeing that the movie was crap?"
