First my gripes: 1. Parking's a bitch and a half. 2. I pre-registered online and had to wait in a line that stretched all the way around SD Convention Center for 3+ hours. On site registration line was maybe 30 minutes long. 3. Alt Rodimus was sold out by the time I got there at 2pm-ish. See my post in the HTS/Alt Rodimus thread in Toyark for more details here: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/showpost.php?p=1486300&postcount=206 Cool things: 1. Got to see Superman: Doomsday's world premiere 2. Did manage to pick up the ML Shulkie exclusive 3. Found some other stuff that has been long on my want lists (ML Kitty Pryde, Shadow Hunters DVDs, some trades) 4. SDCC swag 5. Kaiju Big Battel merchandise 6. Fun merchandise elsewhere to be seen (Alex Ross's Ambiguously Gay Duo, T-shirt of Zod saying "Kneel", Xena shirt with Sardonicus/Joxer/King of Thieves, Lone Wolf and Cub and Zatoichi mini figs) 7. The Tick drawn as a zombie by Arthur Suydam on a SDCC exclusive shirt, which I bought of course. All in all, I'm still glad I went. I have a lot to learn for the next time I may go. Namely, get there damn early!
