I've been seriously considering going to this, but don't want to take time off from work. If I go, I would probably get a Hotel, fly out early Saturday morning and fly back Sunday evening just in case there's something I want to see the next day, or if I want to browse and walk the floor for a bit.

So, at a Toyshow in San Jose, Sylent and I spoke to one of the vendors who was handing out fliers to the 2012 SuperCon in San Jose. He said it will be the only Con in Northern Cali with WonderCon moving to Anaheim this year.

He said he knew some of the people that run WonderCon/SDCC and said they were thinking about having a WonderCon South (Anaheim) around April and a WonderCon North (San Francisco) around October. Saying that APE (Alternative Press Expo) that is in San Francisco in October would just become WonderCon North.

I don't like it. I rather have WonderCon in San Francisco in April.

I can hear all the APE fans complaining about this now.

... all 8 of them.

In the 2012 Comic-Con Annual it says that there is going to be an Amazing Spider-Man panel at Wondercon.

I think alot more people are going to go to Wondercon now. Since alot of people didn't get SDCC tickets, they'll probably just go Wondercon instead.

Are you attending all three days? If so, are you planning on driving back and forth or get a hotel room?

Are you going to mix in Disneyland as well?

I'm there on Friday. Planned to go the whole weekend but have a conflict on Saturday. If something was awesome I could go back early Sunday before I got to get to LAX and back up to Nor Cal. My whole family is down there so I'll be staying with them and driving their car.

I've been periodically searching for any news on WonderCon exclusives, but only found the Yoda statue.

Ridley Scott to Debut Full Trailer for PROMETHEUS at Downtown Disney Followed by Q&A [UPDATED: WonderCon Panel Confirmed]

http://collider.com/ridley-scott-pro...ler-qa/150663/

Quote:
We’ve only seen a teaser trailer and a handful of images from Ridley Scott’s sci-fi pic Prometheus thus far, but the film is rightfully one of the most anticipated of the year. As if Scott’s return to the sci-fi genre wasn’t enough, Prometheus is said to take place in the same universe as the director’s horror classic Alien. It was announced today that Scott himself will premiere the first full trailer for the film on March 17th at the AMC Downtown Disney in Anaheim, California, followed by a 30-minute Q&A with the director conducted by writer/producer Damon Lindelof. Hit the jump for more, including how you can stream the event live. [Update: 20th Century Fox has now confirmed that Scott and Lindelof will be onhand for a Prometheus panel at this year's WonderCon. Thanks to reader Steve for the heads up.]
It’s worth noting that Fox has a panel planned that Saturday at WonderCon (held in Anaheim, not far from Downtown Disney) that will include “some very special guests.” Given the just-announced trailer premiere, Prometheus will probably have some sort of presence at the convention though whether Scott, Lindelof, or both will show up is unknown. The panel takes place before the trailer event, so it’s possible they’ll be showing the trailer to the WonderCon audience.
For those of us unable to attend the AMC trailer event (which starts at 4pm PST/ 7pm EST), the whole thing will be available for live streaming through AMC, Facebook, and Twitter. The trailer will go online immediately following the event, and you can go over to AMC’s site right now to submit your questions for Scott.

That's cool, because they usually don't allow film footage presented at a Con to be viewed online. Doubtful, I'll be able to stream the event at the time as I'll be at 90th birthday party.
