I know it is still a bit early, but is anybody planning on going? I am seriously considering going this year and if I do would like to share some of the expenses (like hotel room, etc). I might even consider driving there since it seems to be much less expensive than flying.

I'm going, but taking my wife and kids. We're making a San Diego vacation out of it (Legoland, etc). I got my hotel and airfare free from frequent flyer/stay miles, so that leaves more cash to spend on exclusives!

I'm probably going. Hey JorusFett, another one of my friends that's coming might need a roommate. You met him the other night at the dinner...

I was going to go, but Pearl Jam is playing the Gorge that weekend as well. I was really looking forward to going to both, but d@mn same weekend scheduling prevented this.

Hi All,

Well, Comic-Con is about a week away. A couple of you (starwarsfreeksr, JoshEEE) have PM'd me with wish lists for stuff to pick up. If there's something others would like me to bring back (within reason http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/crazy.gif) let me know.

Some things I'm looking to get (appx. price):

Acme Sidious and Anakin Character Key $30
Hasbro Gold Titanium Darth Vader's X1 Tie Fighter $10?
Hasbro 501st Stormtrooper $15
And as much free stuff (posters, etc.) as I can get

Here's a link (http://starwars.com/collecting/news/misc/news20060621.html) to a list of SDCC exclusives to jog your memory (can't bring back anything big!)

Any chance if my plans fall thru on going you could try and pick up the Battlestar Exclusives for me?

I can try, although I'm not too hip on Battlestar (Galactica?). If you tell me exactly what you're looking for (manufacturer, price, item name/description) that will point me in the right direction. Web links are always helpful.

I did a quick search on battlestar con exclusives. Are you thinking of ActionFigureXpress' Cylon Premium Format Mini Bust? Link here (http://www.action-figure.com/index.php?name=News&file=article&sid=19646)

There is a bust and a 12 inch Cylon. The bust is by Art Asylum but is an Action Figure Express exclusive and here is a link: http://photos.figures.com/photo/1/showgallery.php?cat=3954

The 12 inch Cylon is by Majestic Studios. The link is: http://photos.figures.com/photo/1/showgallery.php?cat=3777

It is dependent on my plans falling thru but i just want a back up plan so I don't have to turn to eBay. I of course would pay you up front and could hook you up with a thank you gift.

If you are looking for the Battle Star Galactica exclusive, this website also has it up for sale. I am not sure the markup or the reliability but it is an option.

I might still be going to SDCC there is just something with work I am trying to get out of doing that just sprung up. That link has a big mark up on the 12 inch Cylon more then double the convention price. I was just wanting a back up plan in case I can't go. The other exclusives I was able to secure already and these were the last two I needed that back up plan on.
