IF YOU DIDN’T GET ALL THE DAYS YOU WANT: Last year, there were TONS of movie pre-screenings you could go to for FREE. If you don’t have days, that frees you up for that awesomeness. I haven’t hear anyone talking about it, but there’s also that.

SDCC Just sent out an email with registration codes! If you can’t login to the website to get a registration code GO CHECK YOUR EMAIL RIGHT NOW!!! Your code could be in there. Here’s the email text, ”

Your registration code for Open Online Registration can be found by logging in to your Member ID account and selecting the “Registration Info” tab.

We have noticed that a large number of attendees have waited until the last moment to access their registration code and it is causing temporary outages on our Member ID site.

For your convenience, please find the EPIC Landing Page Link and your registration code below.”

Thank you for your patience. You’ll be placed randomly in groups shortly after 9:00 AM Pacific Standard Time. Every member of the JLA has an equal chance of buying a badge, even Aquaman. #UNITETHESEVEN

Welcome to the EPIC waiting room! Open Online Registration will begin shortly after 9:00 AM Pacific Standard Time unless The Source decides to reboot the multiverse. Again.

Rory waited for Amy outside the Pandorica for 1,894 years. Waiting for registration to start at 9:00 AM Pacific Standard Time will not take that long, we promise! In the meantime, check out the helpful registration FAQ on Toucan, the official blog of Comic-Con and WonderCon Anaheim!

Here we go again! It’s Open Registration time and I already know of some difficulties that normally don’t happen. Trevor and Pekka are for certain going to SDCC this year and are going through normal Registration like everyone else. We attempted Pre-Registration several months ago, but only got two days. So now we’re back to go for the rest of the days.

Pekka was able to get into registration and the Epic waiting room just fine. Trevor tried to get his registration code this morning and the website would not load:

Registration Code Error


FINALLY after a half hour of trying, Trevor got his registration code and is currently in line waiting to get going. Also the email did go to the Spam folder, so if you’re not seeing the link to the epic landing page, it could be there.

Trevor began his forray into nerdom as a kid peddling his bike all the way to the local bookstore to purchase comic books. The boring superhero comics weren’t good enough for Trevor, he wanted the real ones. The ones with ducks. Now who's laughing while he’s on his way to cash in all those valuable Ducktales comics. Soon he’ll have his own money bin full to the brim. These days, to fill the time before the money bin construction completes (and begins), Trevor fills his time with photography, movies, television and comic book conventions. You can find his cosplay Meet & Greet mini-shoot and articles on this site as well as prints of his photographs being sold by cosplayers throughout the land.

P.S. Trevor converted to Marvel & DC comics and movies later on, so no heartburn on that one, right?
