The lights are on
Over the years, San Diego Comic Con has taken on a larger, more
festival-like atmosphere. Take a visual tour with us through the sights
and sounds of this year's show (sounds not pictured).
PopCap's booth features a series of giant Munny figures designed by various artists. The company will be auctioning them off for charity on Monday
Once we removed the trenchcoat, we discovered that the the really tall man standing in line behind us was really four turtles
This adorable display over at the Pikman booth says, "come take a picture with me." But the eyes of the yellow pikmin say, "take off your shirt."
Just outside the convention center a group of medieval knights hone their skills in combat
The green knight killed a man, but everyone thought it was just a show. This is what our society has become!
The local rickshaws even dress up for comic con. This one is a throne fit for a king. Also you can see one of those ladies totally checking me out as I take the picture
The Ghostbusters stopped by to trash the local hotels
Sonic is a lot bigger in person
This crazy woman in a Hello Kitty truck kept driving past the convention center, making fun of everyone's outfit...presumably. She was also speaking Japanese
As you can see, the local police are on hand to make sure things don't get out of hand
Game Informer's own Dan Ryckert and Joe Juba got into the spirit of the show
Local businesses and shops get redressed with ads for games, television shows, and movies
The Godzilla Experience gives showgoers a chance to look a old Godzilla memorabilia and get a taste of the upcoming film
There he is, the King himself...Elvis Presley stuffed into a Godzilla costume
This couple looks like a perfect fit
Zen Studios built an actual pinball cabinet to showcase its downloadable Star Wars Pinball game
Oh Ryse. Kinda a humdrum way to end this thing, huh? Sorry about that. We'll find a better picture next time
Check out previous year's Seen at Comic Con's here and here.

Love comic-con even though I've never went. Just seeing all the wacky costumes is fun in itself.
Ryse doesn't seem to be getting much attention. I hope it's a sleeper hit and not just "a sleeper".
Oh my goodness, I want to go so bad. Thanks for the pictures! Hopefully you guys can get some more footage of Arkham Origins..
Nice look at Day One of the San Diego Comic Con, Ben!
Thanks for the pics and the laughs. Great descriptions.
Ryse does look pretty boring.
The Game Of Thrones chair was awesome.
I always wonder how people in tetris costumes get through doors...
Halfway through this I knew Ben was behind it. Street Comedy!
Oh snap! Ghostbusters! I love that movie!
OMG, I want that Zen Pinball table.
