SDCC '12: Random Celebrity Sightings and Capcom Producers

There are lots celebrities that attend SDCC; many are there for panels, some do signings, and others might be there for a random reason, like just to hang out. You could just be enjoying the con then turn around and all of a sudden see a celebrity right behind you, which is even better when it's one that you're a fan of. Some celebrity autographs can be easily obtained, usually for a price, but some are super cool to do it for free, while others are limited to only a small amount of fans that were lucky enough to draw a winning ticket. Sometimes photos are easy to get and you might get an incredible picture. Other times you may be far away or there might be bodyguards moving the crowd along, so your photo might be far away or not so great. The photos here are just a very small number of the celebs that were at SDCC this year. I've included the videogame producers that signed at the Capcom booth here because they are just as awesome, if not more so sometimes, as the other celebrities. Fans love that Capcom has been bringing their Japanese producers to SDCC for the past couple years and I hope it's something they continue to do for the fans.

The BioWare/Mass Effect signing had Raphael Sbarge (Kaidan), Kimberly Brooks (Ashley), Courtney Taylor (Jack), along with writers Sylvia Feketekuty and Chris Helper, and Dragon Age head writer David Gaider.

Cindy Morgan and Bruce Boxleitner up in the autograph area.

Larry King interviewed Peter Cullen at the Optimus Prime: Up Close and Personal panel and it was fantastic. We had crappy seats, but I'm sure you can find a video or two of it online.

Phil LaMarr doing a signing at the Hasbro booth. I think it was for Monsuno, whatever the heck that is.

So, Michael Biehn was being really nice and talking with all the fans at his signing at the Starz booth. Then somebody told him something that made him super angry and he walked off. Jennifer Blanc-Biehn ran after him and eventually he came back but was noticeably angry and silent. It was awesome to meet him, but it was really awkward.

There was a Piranha 3DD piranha on display at the Starz booth so here's Michael Biehn being eaten by a piranha.
