I'll probably be going for this since I'm up for verification for press. I'd rather not assume I'm going to get it, not get it, and have no tickets. So always better to have a backup!

Is it too early to see about joining a buying group?

I was wondering the same thing so thank you for the answer! About when can we expect the groups for open registration to start forming? And how exactly does the group thing work?

Thanks in advance!

I'm going to jumping into this as well (assuming the pre-reg gods are kind to me)...my niece turns 16 and she's been hounding me for the past couple years that I've been going to take her as well...so I gotta try and help to get her a ticket...we'll see how that goes.  Be a cool birthday gift for her to take her to SDCC.

First, congrats to those who got badges today! Those that didn't or didn't get all the days, try for open reg!

Speaking of which, for me, after reading the above posts, just to be safe until the right thread is created, I would like to join a buying group for open reg, if that is still possible.  :)

i really want to join a buying group - have booked flights and hotel (coming from UK) - the flights are non refundable, so will be a long week hanging about if i dont get tickets again this year

Hello,  everyone, how are all of you? My name is Arielle and I am brand new to the group buying process but not so brand new to sdcc. I was wondering where in the site I should go to join a buying group for the first time?

Yeah one of my HS music students missed out on badges in Pre-Reg. and I'm going to be suggesting he and his folks check out the badge buying groups in Gen. Reg.

I am very pleased by the success our groups have had in the past, and I hope it continues for open registration next year!

So I had a dream last night that I was helping Karen Gillen and John Barrowman buy Comic-Con badges during open registration.

(emphasis mine)

Starting next Monday (Jan. 11), we’ll begin introducing our 2016 special guests, with four each week through March (and maybe a little beyond!). Stay tuned for other important info, too, such as hotel reservations and the complete program schedule (the latter about 2 weeks out from the July event).

Please tell me this does not mean a first of the month sale (in March)? That would be the 5th which is my kids opening day for little league baseball.

I wish they had included instructions on how to get an Ewok.  I really want one.
