Yes it is offsite. I love the panels there and the best part is that you do not have to invest a lot of time online as long as you have a ticket you have a seat.

There is a whole thread on Nerd HQ.

Ooh, that sounds much less chaotic! I'm definitely going to have to take a look at that thread - thank you!  :)

Does anyone have experience with the Marvel Autographs drawings?

Those are worse. It's at the Marvel booth the morning of and like the Funko line, already capped when the first person in line reaches the floor. SDCC has a BAD vendor problem and they don't seem to care.

Thanks for the info.

Shame, I was hoping exhibitors would line up for the Marvel exclusives but not so much for the autographs...

Those autographs are worth more than the exclusives!

This is getting off topic but the Marvel booth lineup was confusing because there are multiple lines for different things. When I figured out which line it actually was it was already capped.

Overall drawings at the booth can be a mad dash but if you pre-plan by asking people in the booth the day before it may help.

Last year Kerry Dixon camped and wa first person in line for exhibit hall, just to try for Marvel autographs and she didn't even get there in time. So.

Does this mean that the vendors let in friends/family/etc first, and then the "general" public follows? I think I saw that somewhere, and I remember thinking that it was a bit outrageous!

I absolutely think that vendors let in friends and family. This is how they even skirt the "no selling to vendor badges" they go outside with their vendor badges, give them to people with regular badges to wear to get in early, then once in they swap them back out with their attendee badges.

If SDCC wanted to fix this, security would bein place to prevent queuing before floor doors are open to attendees.

i know first hand of a few people who used their vendor hook to get on the floor before attendees. These were people who camped outside near me so I had a chance to speak with them and when they missed out on WB they called their friend so they could get onto the floor for with the intentions of getting on the line for autographs at the Marvel booth.

That's not right. CCI should enforce a policy against that (though even if they did, a lot of people probably wouldn't follow it).
