Rules To Register for Comic Con 2012
February 27, 2012

Previous attendees for San Diego Comic Con received an email this week urging them to download and read the new rules to purchase tickets for Comic Con 2012.  For the past several years the con has sold out every day and there are now more people that want to attend than the hall can accommodate.  Below is a copy of the email with the link for the new information.  If you are planning to attend SDCC 2012 make sure you check out the information below.

Because of limited space at the San Diego Convention Center, we are required to limit attendance and do not have enough badges for everyone who would like to attend the show. Unfortunately, the high demand and limited availability can make buying a badge challenging and time-consuming. Although we are working hard on our registration system to make buying your badge a better experience, we want you to know what to expect during badge sales and have provided you with a very detailed document “Comic-Con 2012 Helpful Hints and Tips for Online Badge Registration” available for download now at
Reading this downloadable PDF may help you complete your badge purchase more efficiently and could give you an advantage over people who do not choose to read it.
If you have already purchased a badge for Comic-Con 2012, or if you are a professional, exhibitor, or member of the press who do not plan on purchasing a badge during open online registration, please disregard this e-mail notice. You are receiving this courtesy notice because you have signed up for a Comic-Con Member ID.
Thank you,
Attendee Registration

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on,,, Boing-Boing,, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
