WonderCon 2012: 40 Pictures from the Convention Floor Including Replica Costumes, an Original KING KONG Poster, STAR TREK, AVENGERS, and More

     March 16, 2012


Since most Collider readers won’t have the opportunity to attend this years WonderCon in Anaheim, California, I decided to do the next best thing: take a ton of pictures from the convention floor.   While WonderCon is still a small convention when compared to its sibling Comic-Con, I love being able to walk the floor with ease and I also cherish the abundance of indie dealers that haven’t (yet) been pushed out by Hollywood and the huge corporations.  However, if you like getting all the free swag that’s in abundance in San Diego every summer, WonderCon is not for you.  But if you love geek culture and live near Disneyland, I definitely suggest attending tomorrow or Sunday.

Hit the jump for all the images including posters for Total Recall, The Amazing Spider-Man, Game of Thrones, Resident Evil 5, an original King Kong poster that’s being sold for ten thousand dollars, replica costumes from Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek and The Avengers, replicas lightsabers, Before Watchmen stuff, and a ton of random cool stuff. Also, if you missed the cosplay images or all the new Dark Knight Rises merchandise, just click the links.  Finally, check back all weekend for more WonderCon coverage from the panels and tons of interviews.

    Doesn’t look very busy was this before it opened?

      Yes, looks like early Friday morning when it wasn’t particularly busy. It did pick up through Friday and Saturday was quite busy, although not the madhouse that is San Diego Comicon. Wondercon really has the feeling of SDCC in the 90s, before it became a media circus. Of all the people and dealers I’ve talked to there this weekend, almost 100% preferred it to SDCC.
