The 2016 San Diego Comic Con International (SDCC) has come and gone. This year is the first time that SDCC is implementing the RFID badges, where you have to scan in and out. It worked very well.
This year I focused on people rather than seeing and buying things. It was great to run into people, really reminded me of how SDCC used to be.
Didn’t spend the bulk of my time hanging out with my usual friends, but I got to meet up with other friends, which is always great.
Another comic con has come and gone in beautiful San Diego. This year wasn’t the same, I wasn’t able to walk the floor with my usual buddies. I also didn’t spend hours upon hours waiting in line to get a ticket to wait in another line. The only full day I spent at the convention center was Sunday, and that was bargain hunting day, which worked out pretty well this year.
I went to the premiere of Justice League Gods and Monsters, and the Warner Bros. Television and DC Entertainment Screening TV Panel.
This year I made it a point to meet up with people, comic con used to be a time where I’d run into friends that I hadn’t seen in a while, or would only see at comic con, now it’s a mad house. I know other friends were there that I didn’t get to see, sorry I wasn’t able to hang out for a bit but there was too much foot traffic.
Thank goodness there wasn’t an exclusive figure at the Hasbro Toy Shop that I had to get this year.
I’ve been catching up on my podcasts, and I got around to the latest Harmontown episode. They talk about comic con and sum up some of the same feelings that I share. Take a listen here.
In particular Spencer‘s comments on purchasing exclusives at the con. He’s put in to words what I’ve posted about.
For those of you who don’t know, Harmontown is Dan Harmon‘s podcast. He’ll talk and rant about something in the beginning, if you’re lucky he’ll freestyle rap, then some guests come out and join in the fun. Then at the end… at the end, they play Dungeon’s and Dragons! Always a pleasure to listen.
