San Diego Comic Con 2017 Day 1

Once again we are at San Diego Comic Con.  Up at 4:30am in the morning for a chance at autographs, exclusives and to get onto the showroom floor early. This year's Hilton Baymont building wrap is FX's Legion.  We wait until the sun begins to rise on all of the early morning con goers.  Nervous electricity is in the air as the line begins to move toward the convention center. We are probably 1000th in line and that's a good spot.  After a few hours we are finally in the convention center.  We are directed to lines for WB, Funko, FOX, Lego and Hasbro. 

We chose FOX so we can get Legion autographs.  We find out that FOX is notoriously late and we wait 2+ hours and end up with 2 Ghosted (new show) tickets because the Legion tickets have just ran out.  Mind you this is for a chance nothing is guaranteed no matter how long you are in line if you do not win your autograph tickets you can either get back in line and try again or just forget it.  But, in our case, the comic con gods showed favor when another autograph ticket winner wanted my Ghosted ticket in exchange for a Legion ticket.. HAPPY DAY HAPPY DAY... It is an autograph win for day 1.. We (my niece and I) went to our respective autograph sessions (and waited) for our autograph signing sessions.  We seen the cast of The Strain while waiting for our sessions
