Comic-Con 2011: Preview Warner Bros.' 'Vampire Diaries' Bag (Exclusive)
Who's ready to walk around Comic-Con with Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder?
That's just what thousands of people flocking to Comic-Con for posters, comics and scores of exclusive swag distributed at the annual pop culture fest will be doing with this year's Warner Bros. bags.
This year's batch of double-sided swag bags feature images from 10 different Warner Bros. properties -- including The Vampire Diaries -- are multifunctional and can for the first time be turned into backpacks. More than 130,000 of the massive bags, which measure 24 inches by 28 inches, will be produced and distributed to all Con attendees upon checking in.
Last year marked the first year that the WB carry-alls were the official bags of Comic-Con; the Warner Bros. Worldwide TV Marketing-designed goodies were previously distributed at the WB booth on the convention floor, debuting in 2006.
