SDCC ’14: The Best of the Rest – Unique show floor exhibits and offsite sights fill Comic-Con with themed fun

in Conventions, Entertainment, Events, Merchandise

While we’ve already spotlighted Disney’s biggest hits at San Diego Comic-Con 2014 as well as many more exciting sights and experiences (all of which can be seen here), the huge convention featured so many more unique exhibits to see.

So this is a catch-all post to wrap up everything else from the event, something we’re calling the Best of the Rest, presented in no particular order. It’s an assortment of items and happenings we found interesting and worth sharing from throughout the 5 days of SDCC.

Show Floor / Exhibit Hall

Aside from the major booths we’ve already featured, the Comic-Con 2014 show floor was full of thousands more – far too many to include each and every one. So below are a few photo highlights from around the exhibit hall, from Transformers to Batman to Sideshow Toys (with a fantastic Iron Man display) to The Hunger Games and more.

Offsite Events

Outside of the convention center, San Diego Comic-Con always draws hugely entertaining offsite events in nearby fields and the Petco Park Interactive Zone. Themes this year included The Simpsons, Godzilla, Into The Storm, Hello Kitty, Sin City, The Leftovers, and more.
