Without it, we unable-to-attend Comic-Con would have to wait like, minutes, to find out what’s happening down in San Diego at Nerdvana. But thanks to the glories of Twitter and its many image posting services — like Twitpic and Yfrog — those down at the San Diego Convention Center can send out their pics of what’s happening to the entire world immediately.
I always love walking around and checking out the show floor and all the ads and whatnot adorning the hallways. There also seem to be a bigger-than-ever amount of outdoor activities happening this year. So, swiped shamelessly right from Twitter, click through for a full gallery of the very best SDCC pictures I’ve found so far. (I’m working on a separate gallery of costumes and celebrities, on the way later this weekend.)
The exhibit hall, eerily quiet before the show opens.
More outdoor advertising than I’ve ever seen at SDCC.
If this doesn’t make your geeky little heart go pitter-patter, nothing will.
Thor’s hammer, as used in the movie. Looks kinda plastic; hopefully it’s just the Con lighting.
The Throne of Asgard, at the back of Marvel’s booth. As seen in the upcoming Thor movie. Sadly, no one is being permitted to sit on it.
Scott Pilgrim is everywhere.
The Green Hornet’s car.
Warner Bros. banners.
Speaks for itself.
The massive Tron: Legacy booth, by Disney.
Gotta love those big banners!
Something to do with Adult Swim. Not sure what.
LEGO Master Chief from Halo.
AMC’s booth for its Walking Dead TV series.
Titan training outside the Convention Center.
It looks vast, but this is just a small portion of the crowd inside the legendary Hall H.
Cheeky True Blood banners.
Behold! The geek in his natural habitat, involuntarily gravitating toward Comic-Con.
More Scott Pilgrim…
LEGO Toy Story = WIN.
Showtime is promoting its original series as “antiheroes” who “have more fun.”
Spike TV’s booth.
Merlotte’s Bar, from True Blood. Can’t quite tell where it’s located.
Video games grow in importance every year.
LEGO Harry Potter.
Okay, so this isn’t exactly unique to Comic-Con. But come on, how incredible is that tat?
Glee has truly arrived now that it has its own video game.
Posters for the movie Priest.
Even more Scott Pilgrim…
Another True Blood banner.
Optimus Prime stands proudly outside the Convention Center.
Unlike his pal Optimus, Bumblebee gets to hang out inside where it’s nice and cool.
Syfy takes over this restaurant and uses it as its hub for Comic-Con. They used to have a booth in the exhibit hall, but now they do this instead. Yes, they serve real food and everything. The menu items are named after Syfy’s shows.
