I'll do some begging here...  ;)

The only exclusives I really can't live without are the Gree and Idol Mighty Muggs.

So i have a question for you guys who have gone to SDCC before. I am really considering a trip out there for the con this year since work is forcing me to take my vacation. What hotels do you suggest, walking distance would be ideal. Is anyone planning on going? Any help would be much appreciated.

I would imagine that most of the hotels within walking distance of the convention center are sold out by now.

they have free shuttle service around downtown for the week. so you just need to stay around the two bus routs and you will be fine, they run every ten to fifteen minutes.

Hoping the SW Emperor Head Thingie is available online as well, but looking to pick up at least one of these if not two.

If anyone is able to nab me a Kazar set, I would love to get one of those.  Any idea on how much they'll charge?

I'll join the list of beggars....

I want to get 2 Each the GI Joe exclusives, the Cobra Commander (in Politician Disquise) and the Combat/Galactic Hero Snake Eyes with Timber.

Please Please.  I'll sweeten the deal...starbucks cards, Itunes cards (for listening while you wait in line), Hooter's gift cards. 

With the new baby boy, there is ZERO chance I can go.  But he is gonna need that Snake Eyes.
