While one Facebook poster received the waiting room is full and it’s unlikely that badges are still available message within six minutes, others are reporting that they were getting the message even in less than one minute.
At 9:55 AM Pacific Time, Comic Con tweeted that all four day badges to San Diego Comic Con were sold out.
