An unusually overcast and drizzly morning in America's Finest City for the warm up to the big event. A brave and dedicated few have been sitting in their lawn chairs since the wee hours of the morning as exhibitors set up inside the cavernous convention center floor. We took a few random shots of some marketing marquees and banners draped across the buildings, hotels, and lamp posts as the run up to Comic-Con begins!
Justin Hauner and his friend, Ben Fucik, were in a hurry. Their flight home from San Diego, California, to Appleton, Wisconsin, was taking off soon, and they had to get to the airport in time.
However, Hauner had a change in plans that had them in a race against the clock: He had to ship the collectibles he had purchased on his trip back to Wisconsin.
"I had so much stuff that I bought that I didn't have enough room to get into my luggage," he said.
If you haven't heard, there's this little shindig in a lush seaside town featuring a mass convergence of fans of the pop culture over the next 5 days. Galactic Hunter will be there with new armor, new paint, and we hope a better engine beginning this evening for Preview Night.

eBay seller Tunghori strikes again with another first-look, this time an animated Senate Commando figure named Captain Jayfon. He's blue, has a cool helmet, and will probably be officially announced in the next 72 hours. Unpackaged samples are selling for $6.99 if waiting is not your bag. Check it out.
It's one of the best animated Anakin Skywalker figures money can buy. It has a STAP, knee joints, and a cloth bit so he can actually sit down. Why wouldn't you buy two? Read on!
Kul Teska is a Toys "R" Us exclusive figure which, surprisingly, just showed up. We found a sample at Toys "R" Us in Phoenix, AZ for $14.99 and snapped some quick and ugly photos.
Notice something different? Yeah, we did, too. It seems that not even the venerable GalacticHunter.com can escape the changing times, and it's suddenly all bright and shiny and stuff!
