SDCC 2014: Preview Night and Day 1

A few highlights to this years San Diego Comic-Con. Nothing has really changed. Same venue, almost the same vendors and the never ending same old lines.

Number of peeps also rose and navigating through the floors has somewhat more challenging every passing year.

The Hasbro booth

Hasbro booth at SDCC 2014

New rules, same lines

 It's the 1st official day of Comic-con. I came in at 6:30AM thinking that it would be no problem getting in. I was sadly mistaken. Low and behold, there's a line to get in the building. I have the badge already, but that doesnt help.

 I was then pointed to a direction heading at the back of the building thinking, maybe this was a Hall H line since it looks like people were camping out. 

 And this was freaking 6:30AM!!!! WTH!!!

I'm like half a mile away from the front doors. Geezzz....

Lines sucks

I've been going to SDCC for years and it never fails when it comes to lines. If i have to complain or rant about something, this would be it.

 Back in college when I would enroll for a semester, i had to wake up really early (2am), leave at 3. And be at school at 6am. Be inline for a good 3-5 hours, depending on the mood of whomever is at the registrar, and if im lucky, be done with at least 2 transactions that would consist of maybe 5 or 6. And do everything all over again the next day.

I've been sitting here for a good 2 hours now. This is just the first unofficial day. I have 4 more to go.

SDCC 2014

It's preview night, but I'm already gearing up as early as 3AM. I had to, since i ask a few favors and the only possible way for me to be able to get this is by going at the convention center at 6:30 in the morning (9 hours earlier before the official opening of the con).

I had to pull a few strings this year since I'm so desperate.

I was supposed to sell my tickets, but had a change of heart. One thing is, I'm not as excited that i used to be. Oh well, as long as i have fun.
