[Comic Con] The Best & Worst Of The Free Swag At Comic Con 2011

Most Times I Got Asked “Where Did You Get That?”:
Discovery Channel’s Shark Week Bag

Mmmm, Shark Week. Jawesome.

On Friday morning, I was walking to the Convention Center when I saw someone carrying one of these bags, still folded up. I scanned the crowd and saw a few others carrying them as well. I stood on my tip-toes, looked over the crowd and followed them back to the source: a single Discovery Channel street-teamer with a box of them, just handing them out all willy-nilly. I raced to her and snagged the last one.

For the rest of the weekend, I felt like a rock star. People needed this bag. They had to know where I got it. Because it’s Shark Week. And really, look at it. One look at this bag, and you know you need it in your life.

I’m going to pin it up on my wall like it’s a Teen Beat cover.

    You wanna hear about an awesome piece of swag? After the Legendary Pictures panel, the tickets they handed out were redeemable for a collector’s edition Legendary Pictures Hot Wheels van and a copy of Mass Effect 2 for either the Xbox 360 or PS3. The PS3 version is still selling in stores for about $40, making this the most expensive thing I picked up for free. On top of that, the two people sitting in front of my friend and I didn’t want their tickets, meaning we got 2 copies each.
