San Diego Comic-Con 2012, Day 4 – Batmobiles, Iron Man 3, Epic Mickey 2, LEGO, collectibles, and wrap-up

in Conventions, Cosplay, Disney, Entertainment, Events, Video Games

The final day of San Diego Comic-Con is met with anticipation, anxiety, and a bit of sadness. Even after several highly-entertaining days packed with pop culture excitement, attendees are eager to cram as much into the final hours as possible, particularly with the show floor closing two hours earlier on this last day.

Sunday is the day to rapidly hop from booth to booth, exhibit to exhibit, seeing all the sights put off until “later.” There is no “later” and the commotion around the convention is noticeably higher as attendees try to fit it all in.

San Diego Comic-Con, Day 4 – Sunday, July 15, 2012

Our day began early, crowding around the not-yet-open convention halls with hundreds of others, including an Astromech droid roaming about. For some unknown reason, the doors to the show floor weren't going to open until close to 10 am, cutting a short day even shorter.

Since we arrived before 9am, expecting earlier entry, I killed some time by finally making it over to the nearby Hilton lawn to see the Batmobiles from across the years that were on display together for the first time. Here's the vehicle from "The Dark Knight."

This camouflage "tumbler" from "The Dark Knight Rises" was shown off for the first time as well.

But my favorite Batmobile will always be this one from Tim Burton's films. It's the one I grew up watching.

The later Joel Schumacher variations were cluttered with far too much bling.

Another Joel Schumacher monstrosity.

But you can't go wrong with the classic, from the much-beloved '60s TV show.

Finally making it onto the show floor, I found my way to the giant Marvel booth, which had somehow eluded me for three days.

The array of Iron Man costumes, including the debut of the new suit from "Iron Man 3," was impressive. Even Deadpool and Harley Quinn thought so. Or perhaps they were plotting something...

I continued down to the lower-numbered booths, as I hadn't sufficiently explored that area of the show floor yet. Much to my surprise, there stood a massive Power Ranger, at least 20-feet tall.

The Profiles in History booth was displaying instantly-recognizable pieces of movie history.
