This week at the San Diego Comic Con, Is It Right For Kids.org’s Tore Hatlen is taking photos for Major Spoilers.. Tore got in for the Wednesday Preview Night, and sent along some pictures from the show floor.
Comic Con International, the group behind the San Diego Comic-Con has announced it will be limiting the number of people able to get into the Wednesday evening Preview Night event.
Because of the increasing number of attendees on Preview Night each year, we have decided to limit attendance for Preview Night in 2010.Â It is impossible to accommodate every person who registers for a four-day badge on Preview Night, so we made available four-day memberships with and without the Preview Night option.
Currently, there are no more Preview Night badges available, but there are still four-day memberships still available.

Mattel has two panels at this year’s San Diego Comic Con, and are offering up a bunch of exclusives to boot.Â If you can’t go to the sold out show to pick up these exclusives, rest assured you can find them on eBay for a very jacked up price after the show.
The good news is, those 6-inch figures are being done by the same group that is doing the DC Universe Classic line, which means high quality sculpts with multiple points of articulation.Â Bonus ghost figures are nice, but I really wantÂ the first wave to be a build-a-figure Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man.
Press Release follows

One of the best things about going to San Diego Comic-Con is the opportunity to get your hands on the exclusive toys and action figures, and even get them signed by creators, artists, or actors.Â Diamond Select Toys (booth #2607) has passed along its list of events and exlusives going on at the show.
Sigh… I guess I’m going to have to spend some time on eBay in the weeks following the convention.
