San Diego Comic-Con SE 2021 Wrap Up

Long time no talk CHU!  I’ve been chomping at the bit to hit up a con since November 2019.  San Diego Comic Con Special Edition took place over the Thanksgiving weekend. Wasn’t sure what it was going to feel like, but once I was inside that specific exhibit hall with all the old SDCC signage it was like no time had passed. Many exhibitors I spoke with viewed this con the same way I did – dipping our toes back in the water before the big show comes back in July. Continue reading “San Diego Comic-Con SE 2021 Wrap Up”

Poyo’s SDCC 2020 Toys/Statue Picks on FOC 06/22/2020

So there’s no SDCC this year but they’re still pumping out some toys and statues. Here’s my own highlight toys that I have to fight off the urge in spending all my money on. Some of these might be repeats from Anthony’s big post on the exclusives, I’ve narrowed these down to the ones I would likely pick up to own myself.

SDCC 2019 Cosplay Gallery

I felt there were strangely less coplayers than previous years.  I don’t know why but the speculation was more strict prop policies mixed with all of Harbor being shut down in front of the convention center for badge holders only – it was simply more difficult to get close to the convention.  Doesn’t mean there wasn’t many talented and creative people to take pics of.  I really loved the family doing the Jurassic Park characters. Tell us who your favorites are in the comments! Continue reading “SDCC 2019 Cosplay Gallery”

San Diego Comic Con 2018 Wrap Up

San Diego Comic Con, the Nerd Superbowl, started on July 18th.  This was definitely a transition year for SDCC. Almost everything is a lottery now.  On one hand, it’s an even playing field. On another hand, those who are more vigilant and willing to work harder don’t get an advantage.  Depends on your definition of fairness. Attendees could sign up in what’s called an “Exclusives Portal” for lotteries to all major signings and exclusive booths.  I entered for almost everything in every time slot. I won nothing. Squat. So we can say I wasn’t a big fan this year. My main request of SDCC is to only allow each winning attendee to win only once, since some people won multiples while some won nothing. Continue reading “San Diego Comic Con 2018 Wrap Up”
