I've got a friend trying to get me to go. Is anyone here going? What's it like, if you've been there before?

I wish I could, but what really pisses me off about it is the fact that those rooms sell out months in advance, and you don't know who the guests and activities are until it's nearer to the con and it's already sold out by then. It just pisses me off, that's all.
EDIT-Now I'm not disappointed, as I've found out that Ray Park is going to be at the Chicago Comic-Con. And I will try my darndest to get there.
Of course, someone WILL have to warn security. ;)

Yeah, this is my 10th year in a row. It is hectic, wall-to-wall people, especially on Friday & Saturday (hell, every day) but I wouldn't miss it for the world.
Sunday's can be a blast... people generally mark down their merch because they don't want to haul it all back home with them.

My 10th year too!!
Preview night is a pain also, last year I had my father stand in line for Hasbro at 6pm and I did 80% of my shopping everywhere else, close to closing at 9pm, he was about 12th in line from the front.
IT is really a crazy crazy place, something like 150+ thousand people last year. I am hoping to be there this time only Wed and Thurs. Just takes too much out of me pulling those 5-day visits.
The cool thing is my dad lives about 30 min north of there, so that is where I stay, saves $150+ a night for hotels.

If you've never been, you owe it to yourself to go. It's seriously a blast.
I haven't been able to go for the last 2 or 3 years, but it used to be the best vacation for me and my friends. San Diego itself is a great town, throw in 4 days of comics and toys and parties and it's like Vegas for guys like us.

I went last year for the 1st time and this will be my 2nd. I had a blast going, so much to see, so much to buy! The lines are crazy but the people in cosplay are just fun to see!

I've been to some local conventions in FL but not SDCC. Hopefully next year??? The conventions I have been to are a blast...
The Cylons were created by man ...We rebelled...
We evolved...We look and feel human...
Some are programmed to think they are human...There are many copies...
