This is it – the post you've been waiting for. After four days of wandering the show floor, sitting in on movie studio panels, and epic line waiting, we've come out of Comic-Con 2009 with the mother load: 600 (yes, SIX HUNDRED) photos of the most intricate, sexy, and spellbinding cosplay that showed up this year. Star Wars and Superheroes were well represented, but we also snapped up shots of PC gaming icons, including several Team Fortress 2 teams and an amazing Left 4 Dead group. Legions of slave Leias weren't afraid to bare their skin and the forces of Cobra proudly showed off their guns. We even saw a bunch of familiar faces from last year's pictorial. Grab and seat, put your day on hold, and enjoy the best cosplay gallery from the best year of Comic-Con ever!

I'm, Will Smith, the editor of Maximum PC and the guy in the video below. We shot this video demonstration to show people how to build a killer PC, one step at a time. It's a great reference for beginners and experts alike. This video was created for viewing by attendees of Comic-Con 2009.
The first full day of Comic-Con is over, and we've returned to our hotel room shocked and amazed by the unbelievably cool movie panels and cosplay on display today. Once again, we've narrowed down our top ten sights from today's events for you to enjoy. James Cameron's Avatar, amazing Bioshock cosplay, and a hardcore Street Fighter fan are just a few of the sights that made the list. Just click the "Read More" link below this photo of Supergirl for the full story and more pics.
The first night of Comic-Con 2009 is finally over, and despite only being a quarter of a day (Wednesday's preview night lasted from 5:30 to 9PM), we're still wiped out from all the frenzy. Here are our favorite things we saw at the show today, easily digestible in 10 pictures and descriptions. Wish you were all here to share in the chaotic crowds, overbearing San Diego heat, and overall sweaty nerdiness. More updates from Thursday's panel events coming soon!
The doors have officially opened and the madness has begun. Comic-Con 2009 is in full swing, and we've made the rounds in the main convention halls to catch the geek out in action. Tonight, we're bringing you a gallery of the sweetest, sexiest, and coolest toys we've seen so far. Many of these are from Sideshow Collectibles, but we also have shots of figures from DC direct, Hasbro, and other manufacturers. This is just a small sampling of what's on display behind glass shelves here, and we'll continue grabbing photos of any other toys that catch our eyes. Enjoy!

As the setup for tonight's Comic-Con 2009 opening continues, we've managed to sneak inside yet again to see how the show floor looks one day later. Vendors and studios are putting the final touches to their booths, some even shielding big props with curtains to hide big reveals from curious eyes. This afternoon's gallery has highlights from Sideshow Collectible's famous booth, Hasbro's GI Joe presence, and Warner Bros.'s giant tumble weed. We're just as confused as you. Confirmed, though, is the presence of the Black Hornet's car and an Iron Man 2 armory with at least 4 full-size suits on display. Check back tonight as we'll post coverage from tonight's Preview Night events.
Every attendee of Comic-Con revcieves a complimentary gift bag, which they can use to fill with posters, pins, and other freebies that will be given out on the show floor. We snagged a bag when we picked up our attendee badges, which you can check out below. We'll probaby be giving away our Comic-Con swag to in a contest after the event, so keep tabs on our official Twitter and Comic-Con landing page for updates.
Woohoo! We've arrived in sunny San Diego for this week's Comic-Con 2009 festivities, and can't wait for the show to start! In fact, we were so impatient that we sneaked our way onto the show floor to grab a portfolio of spy shots of the show's setup. Inside the cavernous exhibition hall, comic book vendors, toy companies, and movie studios are assembling their booths, revealing details about the surprises they're planning on revealing when doors open tomorrow night.
So far, we've been able to spot new movie posters, movie props, and a full-size Transformers Bumblebee Camero on display. Over at the Marvel booth, signs reading "Stark Enterprises" and "Stark Expo" indicate that this will be where the highly anticipated Iron Man 2 will be showcased (armor gallery, maybe?). Other highlights include a mech from Avatar, Lego Stormtroopers, and a Stargate. There are already rumblings that Seth Rogan will be on hand tomorrow for the unveiling of Green Hornet's Black Beauty car.
Check out the photos to see what you can pick out. Come back tomorrow when I'll post more photos of the floor before 100,000 sweaty nerds make their way in.
