San Diego Comic-Con: Panels Giving Out Swag!

Swag hunting, or searching for freebies, is not quite the SDCC pastime it used to be. But there are still plenty of panels that hand out free stuff to attendees, so we’ve compiled a list in case you want to fill that hole in your schedule with swag.

SDCC 2015.B20Back.100

Note that swag is technically short for “stuff we all get,” so we’ve used the following definitions of swag, giveaway, and prize:

  • Swag: “stuff we all get,” so all attendees at the panel will receive a free item
  • Giveaway: a limited number of free items will be given away, but all attendees have an equal chance of winning
  • Prize: attendees can get a freebie by participating, usually through a trivia or costume contest

You can sort below by date, swag vs. giveaways, or by room. Happy hunting!
