Just got back late last night from Comic Con. Didn't get to see much of the con overall since I worked 13-15 hour shifts at Hall H. So what kind of neat swag other than the figures did Hasbro sell?
0 · July 22, 2013
Hall H, huh? Were you there by any chance when they showed the trailer for the new Godzilla movie?
Yeah I was right in front of the stage that day
Awesome! I'd love to hear what you remember seeing. Supposedly it not only showed Godzilla himself but also one of the other monsters Godzilla would fight, and it's supposed to look like a centipede with praying-mantis-like grabbing forearms.
Just so we don't clutter this meetup page with our corespondence, you can e-mail me at [masked]
Oh well this conversation really isn't active anyway.
0 · July 23, 2013
Oh woops, accidentally hit enter. The other monster reminded me of the monster from Cloverfield, but black and with more arms.
Someone secretly took video in the Godzilla Encounter of Godzilla himself...it's all over YouTube and the net now. He looks (to quote Rainbow Dash) awesome!
I really wish people wouldn't tape that stuff and upload it online. It's things like that which makes some companies reluctant to have anymore exclusives.
Oh wait, my eyes skipped over the 'Encounter' lol >.<
I agree with that, but I also understand the fans' frustration...
Three years ago ComicCon goers got t-shirts with that poster pic on them.
The fans waited two years for the next big promotional event.
Last year ComicCon goers saw a concept trailer with Robert Oppenheimer's speech.
It hasn't see the light of day since.
Now ComicCom goers see preliminary footage and a simulated close encounter.
The rest of us still get nothing.
The fans are like "We've waited three years! The movie's premiere is 10 months away! Throw us a bone, already"!
And that's what makes being among the handful of people at Hall H so kickass!
I'll be there Thursday and Saturday, dressed as a mailman Derpy. Hoping to snag that Vinyl Scratch exclusive, but I have doubts.

If not, ya can try for Alicorn twi
yes but you need some I.D. cause alicorn Twi is for adult collectors *deal with it*

If you snag a Vinyl, can I touch it? XD I wish I could afford her, but I can't. I'm getting other less expensive exclusives at the con, though.
same here, plus that Vinyl doesn't really turn my interest on, plus I'm in the ebay business so I have to stay and spend a safe budget, sowwy :C
Apparently the tickets to buy stuff from the hasbro booth ran out by the time I got here. People were lined up overnight. Oh well :p
0 · July 18, 2013
Yeah it's going to be tough getting Vinyl. I experienced it last year when I got Derpy. It was about a 4 hour wait in line. Unfortunately little did I know that line was for the ticket to get in line to buy stuff at the Hasbro booth. The second line took about 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
0 · July 19, 2013
I didn't get a badge and waiting 6 hours in hope for a toy seems too much for me. Its why I had to pay $90 for my Vinyl figure.
0 · July 20, 2013
I lined up overnight with a friend to get mine.
Vinyl's gone y'all! Sold out for the show.
Are you sure? I thought that they divided their stock so it would last all four days.
0 · July 21, 2013
Who will be attending on Sunday?
I will be there.
Its kinda funny I'm vpcamping at a koa in San Diego and it took me to the point where I saw people in cosplay to figure out y it was so crowded
Uh, I don't have a badge.Can we still meet up somewhere Friday and Saturday?For fun?Downtown?*coughGodzillaWalkthroughcough*
I don't got the golden ticket either but I'm gonna walk around outside Saturday.
Can everyone please check out my pancake breakfast meetup in suggested
Is anyone gonna attempt to get the HasbroToyShop tickets tomorrow morning or any other comic con day? If anyone doesn't want theirs, I will gladly take the free huge bag you get with purchase. :3
Is there a specific place Bronies will meet, because I'm going to be there Sat/Sun dressed as Discord and I'd like to know where to go
I vote for meeting some time on the back stairs overlooking the harbor. This is a fairly quiet location, and the Steampunks have met successfully there for several years in a row now. We should pick a day other than Saturday, since that's the day the Steampunks do their thing at that spot.
Is that where they have the medieval fights?
Yep, that's where I was thinking.
Any bronies staying at the Hampton Inn? Would love to meet up to chat, hang out, and get some dinner in a while
Pony Pony Pony
Is there a formal meetup planned for the comic con goers? I some suggestions have been made but it would be to have a consensus
It is sad this year there was not any Hub focused restaurant or building. But sitll we could have outside comic con meet ups!
I'll be there Thursday and Saturday. Dressed normally on Thursday but as Photo Finish on Saturday. It will be time for me to make...the magics!
Well I am going to be at the convention center earlySo if ya are down there and want to find me, i'll be wearing a white fur hat with brown spots and an mlp shirt =x
Ya can give me a call on my cell if ya want to meet up and can't find me.
My number is (858) 531 - 8612Just be sure to tell me that you are from this meet up group.
Hope to see ya there
I'll be leaving soon as of 6:20am
I just arrived hope to see ya
so is there any places we can confirm for meet-ups? If not then can I suggest the following places to meet-up:The Hub BoothHasbro BoothIDW BoothShout! Factory boothWelovefine.com BoothMega64 BoothGaslampML King Promanade Park
I'm surprized no one is going to Permier Night on Wensday.
0 · July 13, 2013
Not everyone has 4 day passes with preview night. I work that night as well
Ya, same here. Not sure what to expect for Preview night.
I can't go to it this year, but next year I should be able to having worked this year.
0 · July 14, 2013
I'll be there all 5 days :D
I'll be there thurs and sun

I'm going to the convention only, not really the meetup since im going to be busy vollentering.
Anyone wanna do anything on the 17th? I'll be out there around noon and, if my company allows me to, I can probably meet up with some people and do some stuff.
0 · July 11, 2013
That's preview night right? If so, then ya sure. I got to pick up my assignment for Friday.
Just tell me where to meet ja or give me something like a cell number and I'll c ya there.
0 · July 12, 2013
I'll be picking up my badge on that day, so I could meet up with you guys afterwards.
I will be updating the meetups for each day Later tonight! Also let me know if there are any pony related panels!
Anypony going to the party Saturday night under the sails?
I would like to go. I'll first have to see exactly how far away from all the action I'll be staying at, as well as when I get off shift.
Let me know what exclusive pony items Hasbro has at SDCC this year and see if you can snag something for me (posters, dolls, figurines, Derpy's recipe for muffins).
I'm thinking this year they might have something from "Equestria Girls"...like mayde the soundtrack CD! :D
0 · July 7, 2013
Well this year I know they have DJ as the exclusive, but I bet getting it will be like last year, with people getting more than one and selling it on Ebay or w/e for ridicules prices
To my knowledge, there are a couple exclusive figures, one of them being a $50 Vinyl Scratch from Hasbro. The others are from Funko. Marvel also has an interesting exclusive comic variant of Deadpool with a cover of him surrounded by a bunch of other Marvel characters, the latter in pony form. They'll be sold for $10 each, with only 1,500 being printed.
If nopony can't snag any of that pony swag for me, see if there is anything about the new Godzilla movie coming out next year...it's supposed to be AWESOME!!
I heard that the Vinyl figure will be mass produced later on; just not all decked out with jewels and a talking(?) stage. Those rumors had better be true. I can't afford the $50 one right now, which I don't mind as long as I can get a Vinyl figure later on. There are also 2 exclusives from Funko: clear Derpy and RD. I'm only getting Derpy. There's also a really awesome Vinyl cover for the upcoming comic, which will also contain a backstory for Sunset Shimmer. Idk how much it'll cost, but I want it!
Heather, i'll give you the $50 if you'll get me one of those high-end Vinyl Scratch figures. Which meetups are you going to before Comic Con?
0 · July 8, 2013
Bob, if I was getting one myself, I'd gladly get you one, too. But I don't have that kind of money to spend on her. Hell, I'm trying to raise a little money so I can buy the other exclusives. Also, I'd have to, literally, get in line at 4AM to even have a chance of buying DJ. Even then, there's no guarantee. I can only imagine the line-up being crazy like last year. I heard that TONS of people couldn't buy Derpy, even though they'd stood in line for hours to get her, because she sold out so quickly.
0 · July 9, 2013
However, if there are other exclusives you want, let me know.
Also on Thursday, I vote for meeting outside by the Omni Hotel lobby. Specific, easy and accessible.
I'll be attending LATE Saturday evening, kinda derping around the Gaslamp. May or may not be able to bum a badge off a friend, but I WILL be making a very special cosplay for Saturday.
Well we know that MLP will be showing there Saturday 10 AM
We should meet up before the con so we can plan out everything instead of going in blind.
0 · July 6, 2013
I do not think that everyone is going to be arriving at the same time... I am currently trying to think of places each day where we can meet up!
Most people will want to get their swag asap, since limited edition items always sell out really fast. That's what I'll be doing. If we have time, we can meet up at the IDW panel.
I'll be there as a volunteer
0 · July 3, 2013
I'll be there all 5 days. I'm getting an exhibitors badge from a friend of mine. So I'll be able to go in before they open and I can check out all the pony stuff and also will try to find out where they might be giving out the promo card from Enterplay.
0 · July 2, 2013
So Excited For This! I'm Cosplaying As Discord And Trust I Will Be In Character!
0 · June 30, 2013
I'm only going on Thursday, because exclusives!
0 · June 25, 2013
EXCLUSIVES!!!!!!! *spams you with hi fives*
0 · June 29, 2013
We need a specific location to meet, not JUST the convention center. And somewhere for those who aren't attending the con?
The ESPN restaurant in the Hilton(I think its the Hilton, BIG hotel off to the left near the Marina and ped-bridge) is nice... think there's a starbucks over there too.
0 · June 26, 2013
I knooow this is my first meetup posting but ill see about an exact place
There should be different meet up places throughout the day. In case somepony gets lost or they can't come to the first meet spot.
I suggest we meet up around hasbro group or in front of gaslamp sign to recreate the mlp sdcc cover but this time with.......BRONIES!!!!! :3
For anyone going, I'll pay well if you get me whatever MLP exclusive is being offered this year (assuming there is one). I'd prefer not to have to wait on Ebay shipping, and they usually let you buy two of them per person. My Skype is in my profile, you can message me there if you're interested.
There are a 3 (as far as I know) exclusives this year, all by Funko. Clear Derpy and RD (which will be $20 each to my knowledge) and a sparkly DJ Pon-3 with jewels embedded in her horn and glasses. Her stage apparently makes noise, too. She's gonna be a whopping $50. She's probably gonna be the Derpy of this year where there will be a very limited quantity that you'd have to get in line at 4 AM to nab. :/ I'm still on the fence about getting her. I heard that a normal version of her will be mass produced later on. *shrug*
1 · June 25, 2013
I'll set my alarm for 2AM, I don't wanna miss out on them!
Oh man, I want the exclusives, too. ;w; Three of my favorite characters right there. Shame I can't go, either.
Derpy and RD were (and my still be) purchasable online through Funko. A lot of people took advantage of that. I'm not sure what the quantities will be on those two at the con, though I wouldn't put it past the hoards of bronies to make them sell out fast. Even though Zecora would later be sold in TRUs, that didn't stop people from making her sell out within an hour of her being put on sale at the con. I'm hoping that Hasbro learned from last year and will bring higher quantities and stricter buying rules this year.
*may still be
I wish I could go so badly. >_<Anybody willing to get the MLP exclusives for me, too? I can't pay up front, nor can I pay right away. I would have to set up a payment plan type of method to whoever helps me out here. ;w;
Please leave a message at the email address listed on my profile, if you can help. Thanks much~!
Celestia on Thursday!
1 · June 26, 2013
I'll be attending comic con including preview night. Hope I can wake up early >.<
I'll skip this year. After what happened last year, I don't feel up to the task of even going to the stuff outside the con.
Sorry to hear you had a rough time last year...
Hope to see everypony there.
lol I wish. Don't have money and I think they're sold out last time I checked. I: Have fun though! Would've loved to come for the Dashie andDerpy SDCC exclusive though. :x
This is a huge maybe. I went last year and ended up spending several thousand dollars. If theres a specific group of people going I might scalp a ticket. I didn't get a chance to buy one.
I'm going on Thursday and Sunday, hope to see you there and also hope David Tennant comes so he can sign my Dr. Whooves vinyl figure
