I just wanted to check in with our readers to see if you got your San Diego Comic-Con 2012 passes because they're sold out!
Badges went on sale at 8am this morning Saturday March 3rd, and they were all sold out within minutes, which is insane! I remember the time when I could show up to the convention and buy my ticket at the freakin' door. We will never see those days again.
I understand there were a lot of people frustrated with the system this year and many people couldn't even get through to the page to buy tickets, which sucks. Twitter is full of pissed off Geeks.
So, were you one of the lucky few who will be attending Comic-Con on July 12th - 15th? If so we'd like to know, as we will once again be holding a GeekTyrant meetup. On top of that awesomeness, it's going to be an incredible year of movie panels, we'll most likely see some stuff from Man of Steel, The Hobbit, Star Trek 2, Oz, The Great and Powerful and maybe even The Dark Knight Rises which opens up in theaters the following weekend. Who knows, maybe there will be a special screening of the film up at the con!
For those of you who didn't get badges there will be a time closer to when the convention time where Comic-Con International will release a limited number of badges that you will have a chance to buy. Comic-Con released the following statement on their Facebook page...
Comic-Con 2012 badges are sold out. Although our site and EPIC’s registration site was able to handle the load of customers wishing to purchase a badge, the conduit between the link in the email and the registration site was overwhelmed and service was intermittent for a short period of time. However, the link was not incorrect and was not dead, and once the volume of hits decreased it worked as planned. There will be a chance to purchase refunded and returned badges at a later date. Thank you!
Hopefully we see you at Comic-Con!
