    SDCC Badge Question

    Thanks for the replies! That is what I thought. I went to Wondercon a couple years ago and that's when I first saw the scanning in and out of the convention hall with the RFID badges. Just wanted to make sure it wasn't a big deal so I can make arrangements to go without worry that I wouldn't be...

    SDCC Badge Question

    So, I haven't been to SDCC for a couple of years, and in the past, you needed to pick up your badge at the convention center. Now they mail out badges to attendees. So, my brother has a badge but won't be going, so I thought I would head on back down to SD with his badge. I'm pretty sure it...

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi (Post-release)

    I actually enjoyed the movie. I also enjoyed The Force Awakens, but I thought Rogue One was a big disappointment (I felt like walking out). Whereas I had no intention of watching Rogue One a second time, I, no doubt, will go back and watch The Last Jedi again.

    San Diego Comic Con 2017

    I started going to SDCC in 2005 and went straight to 2013, skipped 2014 and went again 2015 and 2016. My brother gets a professional badge and used to be able to get me one too for free, but not anymore. I've said it before; I think I have a nice solution to the limited space in SD. Here's what...

    San Diego CC ticket prices

    I used to get in on a Pro badge thanks to my brother. While he still gets a Pro badge, guest badges for Pro's are now done in a lottery style. Either you are chosen in the lottery and don't have to pay for the guest badge, or you are not so lucky and have to pay the full price, although I guess...

    Star Trek TOS Communicator from The Wand Company

    This may not be a defect. I find that mine shuts off by itself after a certain period of time when it has been disconnected from my phone. In other words, it is on and working, then I leave home with my phone but not the communicator. Once I return home, I find the communicator has turned itself...

    Whos going SDCC 2016??

    Will be there. Missed the last two years (began going in 2005). We'll see what it's like this year; truth be told, when I last went in 2013 I was pretty much done with it (getting tickets, hotel, the crowds, the lines, etc.). I went to WonderCon this year and had a great time. So, depending on...

    Star Trek TOS Communicator from The Wand Company

    I bought some velcro and tried every configuration possible: full piece on back, half piece on back, only thin strips on the back around the perimeter (thinking it would not block the charging cell), and nothing worked as far as the communicator taking a full charge and the light turning to the...

    Star Trek TOS Communicator from The Wand Company

    Any updates on the velcro situation. Have you tried cutting a bit from the bottom area? I don't like the idea of a holster for it and hoping to find a fix to attach it to my belt.

    Star Trek TOS Communicator from The Wand Company

    I like the idea of putting velcro on the back of mine in order to attach it to my belt, but I worry about the charging situation. Has anyone tried adding a piece of metal/earth magnet to loop a belt through and have the magnet hold it (seeing as that is how it stays on the charger)? Not sure if...

    Star Trek Beyond

    And it is also the name of the effects company (Kelvin Optical) under the Bad Robot umbrella and housed in the same building in Santa Monica. You will see it in the end credits of Star Trek, as you will in the end credits of The Force Awakens. Again, named after his grandfather.

    SDCC 2016 Hotels - How did it go for you?

    Received the waitlist email today. Luckily, I was able to get a hotel at the Hotel Circle/Mission Valley area. While I would have liked to have been downtown, it's still better than nothing. It also helps that the shuttles now run nonstop throughout the day and night. Hope the rest of you that...

    SDCC 2016 Hotels - How did it go for you?

    The waitlist email for June 1st said to check your email for the next 10 days. As of today, I haven't received an email. Still crossing my fingers for a room. Anyone else that was on the waitlist get an email in the last few days securing a room?

    Received that email, as well. Crossing my fingers for a room.

    SDCC 2016 Hotels - How did it go for you?

    Received an email today and did not get a hotel. I am on the waiting list, though.
