Exclusive: Comic-Con 2009 Preview Night Showfloor Photos!

In the immortal words of Rhino the Hamster, "Let it begin!" Comic-Con 2009 kicked off tonight with the late Wednesday night "preview" of the showfloor and exhibit hall open to only a small percentage of all the attendees. Oddly enough though, it's packed, probably more crowded than normal. And if not, then I'm glad I'm not going to be in there the rest of the week. It only seems to get more and more crowded every year. As is my tradition, I busted through the doors to try and get a few shots of the coolest things I could find before I was tired of wading through the sea of geeks. Here's the best shots I could come up with in a few hours.
Every year I try to shoot some original photos that you probably won't see elsewhere. Whether it's cool little statues or toys or other geeky widgets or just more stylistic shots of the same things everyone else is trying to take photos of (like that AMP mech unit from Avatar). There wasn't that much cool stuff to see this year - most of the booths were just repeats of the past few years with a few minor additions. But then again, there are always a few hidden gems to be found. That Weta booth (where the Gollum figure was found) has some great figures and props. And that Where the Wild Things Are prop piece was pretty damn cool, too. Enjoy!
