    Sunday is up, yesterday in fact, but I got sidetracked. Hall H has been opened for Sunday and is being used in an odd manner, basically replacing Ballroom 20 panels, but there's a couple I want to hit in there, so I think Sunday I'm actually fairly booked.

    So, I'm still up for Saturday, and now Chux is too. Anybody else?

    You've never done a con with Steve, have you. There's no such thing as "free time", there's only more time taking pictures and talking with booth people for SSG and ActionFigs. SLAVE DRIVER! If I see some MMPR stuff, I'll make sure Steve or I grab it.

    That's the panel I'm going to as well. It's a great panel, and some of the stuff they said at last year's hasn't happened yet, it's coming this season, so that's over a year's wait.

    Thursday:
    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)

    Friday:
    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.

    Saturday:
    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?"
    Not a bad looking list. You are right that there's nothing GI Joe, I suggest you bug Derryl DePriest about it even though it's not his brand.

    True enough. I haven't seen him post in a few days at all, I wonder if he's busy with another thing EDIT - just heard from him via text msg, he's been ill and is only now feeling better. Hopefully he'll check in soon.

    Seems like the lack of new Clone Wars and TVC figures is making it too easy for all of us to drift away from Star Wars. He didn't get a badge either, like you, he missed out, and now basically has to come back to the SSG staff fold to get in this year.

    Are any of us going to be there on preview night? I ask not for the meeting time, but to see if anyone else will be braving the Hasbro or Entertainment Earth lines that night. Also, is anyone aware of the Hasbro's prices for their exclusives. I haven't found them.

    I'm going to try both lines on preview night, but I suspect I will have no success, it's going to be a mess this year.

    As for pricing, you haven't found it because Hasbro hasn't released it in a press release, and the SDCC site still doesn't have the Hasbro exclusives listed. http://www.comic-con.org/cci/cci_exclusives.php

    We're looking at Saturday afternoon, at least 1:15pm. I'll text you when we're there what the exact time will be (the exact time plus or minus 30 minutes if Tycho has to use the bathroom all of a sudden like in '09 I think it was ).

    thanks JT.

    as I've said many times - horrible dissemination of information from all parties involved with comic-con. We usually know everything & have pictures 4 wks.+ out. This year's been terrible. Wtf are they thinking/doing??!?!?!!?

    Hasbro isn't even listed yet. Classic. Despite this, I'll attempt to be in line for EE and HTS on preview night. We should all "triangulate crossfire," to quote Joe Pesci in JFK.

    As if this event could be anymore of a nightmare, word has it that '12 pre registration will be off site at the Manchester Hyatt and only from 8 am to 11 am. And of course, we have price hikes, a 4 day w. Preview Night is now $175.

    I have been wondering that same thing.

    That's not a bad idea, if they have limits of 2 or more on this stuff, we could gang up on HTS and EE, one person wait in one line, the other wait in the opposite, then they each get the stuff the other needs and split the goods.

    They posted the exclusives page as live news today, and still no Hasbro. I wonder if they're cutting them off the list because the items have high and/or unstated limitation numbers and are shared exclusives with HTS, but honestly, neither of those are likely reasons.

    Wow, where did you see that?!? That's outrageous!

    JT, there's an article that people are linking to on SDCC's official Facebook page and that's where I read it. If true, I don't know what to say other than how many times can management drop the ball???

    If the item limits aren't going to be low, would you guys mind helping me with just a few Hasbro/EE items? I could meet you and pay right then and there.


    Btw, back in '09 it wasn't just that Tycho had to use the restroom but also picking up Aayla from Sideshow and dropping something off for Ashley Eckstein

    I see. Stupid F'ing management is trying to run the whole SDCC site through Facebook, it seems. That's why I missed out on parking at the convention center proper, they couldn't be bothered to PUT IT IN THEIR NEWFEED! They're an abomination running the con this year so badly and already making plans to run it WORSE next year.


    Oh? He talked you into saying it was just the toilet?
