    A salute to all of San Diego, but mostly Comic Con: A brand42 trip report

    After an extremely draining two days at the SDCC, as it's commonly abbreviated, I'm in a bit of withdrawal and as such, I've decided to put a trip report together (though it'll be in installments).



    Look! It's the Mark 4.97999 Monorail and it took 3 hours to reach San Diego (actually the Amtrak Pacific Surfliner. Which is not a monorail at all but at least it has air conditioning inside!)

    we interrupt this trip report to bring you bonus Disneyland coverage...



    Soarin' over California!!!!

    (actually just the view from the window somewhere around Oceanside)

    Now back to our regularly scheduled report...


    On the Sediment "when will it be busy at Disneyland" scale, I'd rate each day that I was there (Thurs and Friday) at a 10 out of 10.











    They really had to step up the security and crowd control for this event





    The next one was taken with the Michael Bay camera





    More to come...

    Tonight's story on the Twilight Zone is somewhat unique and calls for a different kind of introduction



    Look! the Tower of Terror!

    (actually it was the hallway of the hotel where I was staying)

    Now for the sights of Comic Con 2009...



    For $30, you can have this plush Alec Kazam from the Presto short.



    Ooooooohhh I have been chosen!





    Commander Cody from Star Wars. Costume or Statue replica? You be the judge.



    And here is Commander Kitty.



    Bumblebee, talk to me!







    Vinylmation!







    Check out this highly themed attraction they had in there!!!







    Have you seen this man? He's one of the good guys. (For those that do not watch Lost, it's a prop passport belonging to Benjamin Linus)

    Lots more on the way!

    They were at the EFX booth, along with the Nautilus.

    Ain't that the truth. you really CAN'T see it all. If I had known about Flynn's Arcade, I definitely would've looked for it. In 2 days, I never even set foot in the video game area to the far left of the exhibit hall. I'm sure she was there as she's at every comic con and Star Wars celebration but I didn't see the premiere Slave Leia, Christy, I think her name is.

    The Kermit and Rizzo were at the eFX collectibles display, next to the Lucasfilm area.

    Moving right along,



    Lego Rock Band! I really wanted to play but 1) it seemed like only kids were playing. 2) It looked they had the game on "no fail" mode which isn't any fun at all and 3) out of the 3 demo songs that I heard, 2 were in Dreamworks films.

    I'll definitely be visiting the Lego Store in Downtown Disney when these are available









    Beware of falling Pikachus!



    Look! It's the League of Affirmative Action!



    Wicket says "yubyubyub" which translates as "Please take me to Coheteboy"



    Peter Petrelli says "So yeah...season 3 of Heroes sucked. Sucked big time. But you better keep watching!!! Or else..."

    Nathan says "Pete, there's gotta be another way. I can't let you do this"

    Claire is wishing she could just have a normal life.

    Sylar says "you don't have anything I want...heh. heh. heh."

    Matt Parkman is trying to read your thoughts.



    Edward James Olmos - Admiral Adama of Battlestar Galactica, the premier dramatic series on television.



    The Heroes carnival that was set up across the street from the convention center.

    I did not go in because (take your pick)

    1. to protest how disappointing season 3 was
    2. it's a major theming violation. Festive, bright colors and fun. Which you don't find on the show.
    3. It's a trap!!! They know I have powers and they're (especially Noah Bennet) just waiting to "tag and bag" me.
    4. Why come all the way to San Diego for this when I could just go to the OC Fair or even DCA?


    Here are some Black Lanterns from DC Comics





    It seems like this year, the Black, Orange, Yellow and Red Lanterns are all the rage. I saw soooo many people wearing shirts with the respective logos.

    Speaking of the Lanterns, this is Ballroom 20 where I waited for the nighttime viewing of the Green Lantern First Flight animated film







    I think Melonballer and Kuzcochik should be able to tell you who this is. (The shot didn't turn out very well. Sorry about that). He made us all recite the Green Lantern oath - "in brightest day, in blackest night...no evil shall escape my sight..."

    To be continued tomorrow perhaps.

    LOL

    OOOO I KNOW, It is the mad bomber from the Grey Ghost episode of the Batman Animated Series!










    (aka Bruce Timm. Just saying Bruce Timm is not geeky enough.)

    The Heroes Carnival will make sense when and IF you watch Season 4.

    And besides.. I wanted a free snow cone!

    I like that I saw the pic and was like "oooh Bruce Timm" and then realized I got a shout out to name him I saw him in the exhibit hall just browsing through comics on Friday... it was pretty cool
