The Badge Shipping Juxtaposition
People of WonderConopolis, this is your mayor. Follow me: We will avoid lines in the badge pick-up area by buying our badges before the shipping deadline!
I have isolated the algorithm for buying badges! If you purchase a WonderCon Anaheim 2018 attendee badge prior to February 20, 2018, your badge will be mailed to you in advance. Your badge will be shipped to the address on file in your Comic-Con Member ID account as of February 20, 2018. Upon further evaluation, I have discovered that Comic-Con is unable to accept address changes after this date. They encourage you to purchase your badge early to take advantage of advance shipping, and I agree. Don't you think if I were wrong, I'd know it?
Badges for those who purchased in advance will begin shipping 3 - 4 weeks prior to March 22, 2018. Badges will be shipped in batches, so a friend or family member may receive their badge before/after you! Badges not delivered for any reason (lost in dark matter/stolen/destroyed) must be picked up onsite at the Registration Area in Hall D.
If you choose to purchase your badge after February 20, 2018, you must pick up your badge onsite at the Registration Area in Hall D, and I won't say anything. I'll merely offer you a facial expression that suggests you've gone insane. Please click here for more information about badge pick-up.
If you need help deciding when to purchase your badge, remember this: Scissors cut paper, paper covers rock, rock crushes lizard, lizard poisons Spock, Spock smashes scissors, scissors decapitate lizard, lizard eats paper, paper disproves Spock, Spock vaporizes rock, and as it always has, advance shipping beats onsite pick-up. It's simple.
