  • The 20th century Fox booth usually gives out poster tubes while WB has their big bags.

      Oh, thanks for telling me.

      That's cheaper than I thought.

        Usually, the smaller vendors sell them. They're all over the place though. Check the prices before you buy them because some cost more than others and you're essentially getting the same thing.

        I have to buy another one because my buddy lost the top last year.
        Some booths give them away, I remember that I got a cardboard one from fox a couple of years back. And the WB bags have a poster slot that comes in handy, I'll take a pic of one when I get home.

        Was SWAG originally an acronym, or did someone make it into one after the word was created?
        I have no clue, I always knew it as the acronym.

        And SY's pricing is pretty accurate if you have to buy one. And how the hell did you miss the WB booth? Oh I know it was because it was surrounded by hundreds of people....

            Yeah, I couldn't squeeze my way through the wall of people. So I figured, whatever was their wasn't worth getting trampled, pick pocketed, or getting my Comic Con badge stolen, but I was wrong, I would have climbed over people to see the Green Lantern movie stuff.

                I never knew that. I'm going to check when I get home. I'm pretty sure those Brightest Day bags didn't have any poster slots.



                I usually miss out on that stuff for one reason or another.

                    Yeah, one bag had a poster slot, but the straps ripped off easily.

                      A couple of years ago, I either got pickpocketed or lost my badge and got kicked out of the convention. A friend (Jay Burg) gave me an extra badge to get back in, but they caught us and kicked us both out.

                      There's a lot more to the story, but I can look back and laugh about it now.

                          Yeah looking at the bag right now (I use as a laundry bag and I'm doing laundry now). there is a poster slot to the right of the BD pic. Seems like the posters would easily be crushed in them though.

                            What do you mean they caught you? If you had a badge how did they kick you out?

                                Oh, I like that hotel. Plus, they have no bed bugs either, so that makes them better.

                                Ew, I'm watching Watchmen, and they sawed off a guys arms! This was kind of off topic, but I thought I would share it with you all anyways.
