The annual San Diego Comic-Con has grown from just a small con to one of the largest spectacles of sci-fi and geekdom on Earth. So what are some of the coolest things to see this year?

From hit series like The Walking Dead to upcoming sci-fi blockbusters Total Recall and After Earth, there was no shortage of insanely large and awesome booths and props to find scattered around the convention center floor, plus ginormous outdoor signage as well.

The levels that studios will go to in an effort to generate some buzz coming out of Comic-Con is absolutely breathtaking, and this year we get to peek at some massive props and promo materials that have us even more excited for these shows and movies in the works.
