I went to my first Comic-Con this year and had a really good time. Comic-Con is HUGE…over 140,000 people this year. Getting a ticket is tough. All passes were sold out in November 2009 (9 months before the show!). Luckily, I’m considered a “professional” and got a free pass just 2 months before Comic-Con.
I am not into comic books, so I was not sure how much there would be that interested me.
And look what I happen to walk past on the way to the convention center…
I asked the people in line what was happening. “Press event.” Dang! I really wanted to see what was inside.
I continued to the convention center and saw the “Black Beauty” from the upcoming movie “The Green Hornet.”
They were giving away a light cycle toy if you waited in line. I decided to pass on that one due to line length.
There are going to be a TON of product tie-ins with this movie. Some of the products were on display. I may have to get the Xbox 360 controller.
They also had the Lightcycle from last year’s Comic-Con on display.
I asked about access to Flynn’s Arcade. I was told Flynn’s Arcade would be open to the public after lunch. You could get tickets later in the day at the booth, or just go to the Flynn’s Arcade directly.
Some neat new Star Wars Lego kits coming out.
Slave 1 with frozen Han Solo
I stopped by the Xbox 360 setup at the Hard Rock Hotel so I could try out Kinect.
I tried out “Dance Central” in front of a group of people. It was fun, but you can’t help but feel like a big dork…especially as you learn the moves. I’m definitely getting this when it comes out.
Here is a clip I took of a guy playing Dance Central. There is a kid that is running around and it doesn’t mess up the tracking.
Next up: Heading to Flynn’s Arcade.
