No sir. That's 1998 Playmate of the Year and frequent SDCC booth babe Tiffany Taylor:

The new Bionic Woman is British actress Michelle Ryan:

Wow. They do look a lot alike, don't they?

Mike
(If Michelle comes to SDCC this year, we'll have to get her and Tiffany together for a photo op) :wink:

Mike,

While my initial reaction was "its too soon for this", it was quickly replaced by regret for being there last summer and not meeting you. (I did get to meet Dan and host of other cool folks). It was a blast.

Oh, a shout out. I bought two T-shirts from those guys with the huge shirt booth in one of the photos above. Stylin On Line. One Flash emblem and one GL emblem. They had 5 booths set up across the floor. The best part of it? The unexpected 'features of the shirts. When I put on the Flash shirt, my kids noticed that it said "The Flash" across the back. Back home, I was wearing the GL shirt and shut off the lights to head for bed. There was a weird light that seemed to keep following me. The GL logo glows in the dark!

So....if I'm going to SDCC, how much money should I bring? Do they take credit cards at the booths? What's the best/cheapest hotel?

Peace,

Chip

Usually only the really big ones like Golden Apple and Diamond. There are a few ATMs on site if you run out of $

At this point what ever you can get! Stuff starts filling up fast! Check the comic con wewbsite for hotels on the shuttle route, cuz parking blows!

Chip,
the family & I went for a week long vacation to San Diego corresponding with the show last year. Buy your plane tickets early. We didn't. Wife is still convinced we would have saved money. Our hotel was not far from the airport, and seemed ok priced. Parking was not an issue, cause they dropped me off and did something else for the day I went.
