Crossing my fingers
Is it just me, or are a lot of us irked at the unusual delay it is taking to open up general registration for SDCC '11?
Being an overseas-based collector, until I attended the Con for the first time in 2009, SDCC had always been part of my bucket list for as long as I can remember. Extremely happy to have gone 2 years ago (and crossed this one out of my list, though that visit did ramp up my interest in CGC collecting, thereby creating new items in the list). Made a few key purchases for my collection (e.g. Four Color Comics #596, a 9.8 graded Secret Wars no. 8), met with a number of retailers I still deal with on a regular basis (Worldwide, Milehigh), and had a chance to meet and have casual discussions with some of my favorite personalities too (e.g. Francis Manapul).
Am looking forward to attending this year's event, so is my wife (who really isnt into the hobby, but who had a great time attending the '09 con nevertheless) and my kids for that matter (who couldnt come with me the 1st time).
Hopefully they fix the registration problems soon. Latest info from the website says they'll open for registration this Saturday/ Feb 5, hopefully things are smooth...
