There has never been a more wretched hive of comic book, figurine and toy collectors than this year's San Diego Comic Con. With over one hundred thousand people expected (a jump of thirteen thousand from last year's attendance figures) there are plenty of fans enjoying the awesome weather that San Diego has to offer. The Star Wars Pavilion is as incredible as ever and the event exclusives are already proving to be popular. This year Gentle Giant, Master Replicas and StarWarsShop.com are the booths to line up queue up in, and with the convention only hours old the lines are already long.
Of course the big news this year was the announcement that Sideshow Collectibles has managed to acquire the Star Wars 12" license, which is terrific news considering the stellar work they are capable of in the 12" scale. Complete details on the announcement right here.
Rebelscum has sent a detachment of crack reporters to photograph, interview and ask as many questions as possible to bring you the coverage you want. So sit back and enjoy the show. We thought we'd kick things off with a rundown of the news reports that were turned in during the big event.
