So.... anything good come out of this? I don't think I saw anything good Mondo-related but maybe some other things that I don't pay attention to.

I think the Alien facehugger replica was there which looked legit for a good price.

It's only a matter of time before pretty much everything that's flippable becomes lottery only, which is fine by me. Too many undeserving get rewarded. Obviously those that make their living off of flipping will do whatever they can to ensure they eat/sleep etc where as the more polite people tend to do it because they generally want. No one should be rewarded/punished because of their intention.

Wait how do we decide who "deserves" what? Will there be a TruFan registration?

Damn, if people are making their living off of flipping then they are probably barely scraping by.

Good luck making a living off SDCC. You'd have to flip a ton just to break even with the event.

people who butt in line, people who pay others to wait in line to pick up multiples to sell on eBay. Those types.

I have no issues with people waiting in line to get what they want to sell, but there is a line... somewhere.

Seriously. I'm still sour about the whole experience, just from that one abysmall Mitchell line. There were people that got the print that were there an hour after me. My brother and I were behind the very first Mo cap in a group of about 5 before everyone spilled over to the cafe tables. Don't get me wrong, Mo had an impossible job, but the people that were patient, polite, and waited for the line to reopen, while Mo said "I promise we will get you guys in" got completely screwed. The people that edged toward the front as the capped line moved, and basically just shoved their way into it after it "opened" were rewarded. Took a picture of about 100 people in line ahead of me, that were certainly not there at 8:45 a.m. It was frustrating enough to see 100+ exhibitor badges lined up when we got there (though expected) but for fortune to favor the shovers and cutters is just crap. I hope they go to a lottery number system, or find a better way. Love Mondo the brand and they have enormously patient people dealing with the hordes, but hate most people. /Rant.

Yeah that Mitchell line was brutal. Was especially bad when the security guy started picking random people to allow into the line.
