With over 100,000 people in attendance, Comic-Con 2009 promises to be one of the biggest shows ever. The event has grown considerably from it's more humble days, and now encompasses snippets of everything we care about - games, movies, comics, toys, and loads of stars. It's going to be big, it's going to be sweaty, and most of all - it's going to be stupidly fun. The show is completely sold out, and if you're hoping to catch a glimpse of the spectacle it promises to be, we should have plenty for you to gawk at.

Preview Night

The actual show doesn't start until Thursday, but the event organizers have what's called Preview Night on Wednesday. The event runs from 6 to 9 p.m., and basically gives a select few a sneak preview of what's to come. Photographer: Jan Heir View images »

Snazzy Toys and Collectibles

Comic-Con is really know for it's toys, as tons of manufacturers make limited edition runs specifically for the show. Some collectibles can cost hundreds of dollars, but there's plenty at the show that's affordable for everyone. And honestly, who doesn't like Jawas in a hand basket?

The Show Floor

With everything on display, the Comic-Con show floor transforms into a giant playground filled with games, movies, toys, gigantic statues, and costumed characters. Photographer: Brian Ekberg, Sophia Tong, Ricardo Torres View images »

The Never Ending Crowds

The show is big - super big. Outside, the sidewalks and streets are crowded, and the teeming masses shuffle as quickly as they can to get into the convention center. Some don't quite make it. Photographer: Brian Ekberg View images »

More Toys!

Yeah we did toys already! But there's so much cool stuff that it's impossible to stuff it into one set of images. Get a load of the Pac-Man, Futurama, and Lilo and Stitch collectibles. Photographer: Sophia Tong, Ricardo Torres View images »

Cosplay: It Starts

Comic-Con wouldn't be the same without cosplay. And this is only the beginning. Photographer: Lark Anderson, Brian Ekberg View images »

Collectibles and Stuff

South Park, Wall-E, and Street Figther goodness. Ricardo also tracked down a Lost Planet plushie of all things, I'm sure he'll be good friends with the office's resident headcrab. Photographer:Sophia Tong, Ricardo Torres View images »

The Costumed Peeps

It's truly amazing how much effort goes into these costumes. Of course, some of them are show floor pros, but most of the folks are there to have fun. The pack of soldiers from Halo with Cortana was particularly impressive. Photographer:Sophia Tong, Ricardo Torres View images »

Scenes from the Floor

Comic-Con has a ridiculous number of things in plain sight. A gigantic Bumblebee statue is pretty much impossible to miss, but a tiny figurine crime scene starring Darth Maul is something you could walk by a thousand times and never notice. Photographer: Lark Anderson, Sophia Tong View images »

In Full Effect

We have to hand it to the Transformers, the level of complexity in some of these Bumblebee outfits is remarkable. Not to be forgotten, Pedobear made an appearance with a few lollipops, and the slumbering Batman was far too good to resist. Photographer:Lark Anderson, Sophia Tong, Ricardo Torres View images »

@Phill - I think that snowman thing is Jack, the character for the Jack in the Box fast food chain. I think.... The actual Jack in the commercials is much less creepy than that....

@Titch-X: Why the hell do you give a crap about other people who cosplay? You're in no place to comment on what other people like doing. I guess you weren't much for Hallowe'en when you were young, loser. On another note, what's that snowman thing from?
