Battle for SD07 Photos

Just a few more…we’ve made it all the way to Saturday and we’re still alive! Here are two of the many Blade Runner characters running around the show. Apparently they were hired by WB home video to promote the new DVD set which we are getting the second it comes out.

Trina Robbins and Golden Age great Lily Renee Phillips.

At one point we somehow wandered in back of the Convention center and found out where all the real action was as limos lined up to deliver stars.

The new HIlton under construction, which will be the hot place to stay come ’09. (They say it is opening in ’08 but we’re guessing not in time for next year’s show.)

Some other mysterious place where people’s feet were visible under a curtain and paparrazzi were hanging around.

When we first took this photo, we thought this was a line for the porta-potty outside Hall H, but it was just part of the line itself. No line for porta-potty!

The 3D Beowulf display outside the Omni. You had to peep through spyglasses to get the entire effect.

The scene at the SciFi/EW party.

Cool building lighting effects via projection and Luna.

When you get right down to it, this is why San Diego is the new Cannes.

Mothership landing.

More “atmosphere.”

Floating pool decor.

Back at the Hyatt it was a free for all. Much of the cast of the Sarah Silverman show.

DC’s Brandon Montclare and Shane McCarthy.

Ed Brubaker, Pia Guerra and someone else.

Jah Furry…the rest I don’t remember. Not Pictured: Charlie Adlard, Zena Tsarfin, Ben McCool, Ian Boothby, etc etc etc.

    Seeing as how the new Hard Rock Hotel was supposed to be open by this past weekend (a longshot by the way things looked during con week), I’d say 2009 will be a safe bet for the Hilton making the Travel Planners list.

    Then again, if they get the crew that converted the Radisson to a Doubletree in a week’s time on the case, there may be a new option for those camping out in Hall H next year.
