让我们来听一下这条新闻。1.63亿美元,这仅仅是估计的数据,这对该节日的影响的最新的数据。这次动漫节在圣地亚哥举行,仅仅持续几天的时间。实际上,圣地亚哥正在与洛杉矶的阿纳海姆以及其他几个城市竞争该盛会的举办权。即使仅仅是几个克林贡人围绕着你的城市跑一会

儿,谁不想要这样的经济效益呢?现在,我们的记者就在现场。我们有史以来最善于观察的记者Chris Morrow就在现场,通过Skype为我们报道。Chris,你就在现场吗?

我在现场,非常感谢与我连线。

太精彩了,非常感谢你到达现场。好的,为我们展示一下现场的景象。请告诉我们你周围都有什么,人们在做什么?人们对什么感到兴奋?

好的,我必须告诉你,我就在一群动漫人的中间,我为此感到非常高兴。他们都是我们的人民,非常有趣。在Comic Con大约有130,000人。活动将在今天早上开始,一直持续整个周末,你将看到各种各样的戏装,看到不同设计者的玩具。你还会看到导航玩具,你以前可能从来没有见过。你还会看到喜剧书,数码喜剧书,iPhone的应用软件。你还会看到其他东西,例如安吉丽娜·朱莉的电影,谁知道呢,或许布拉德·皮特也会出场。

我知道,人们为安吉丽娜将到场感到非常激动。Tina Fey,Sylvester Stallone和Harrison Ford也会去。你手里拿的是什么?我们看到的是什么?你手里面的,是什么东西?

这就是你所说的自己制作的玩具。你可以购买它。这个玩具来自Jermaine,叫做veil。你可以买回去自己涂颜色。所以叫做DIY玩具。非常有趣。我认为,大概200美元。

一个要自己涂色的玩具要200美元?

是200美元,要你自己涂颜色,五年之内可能会上涨到1000美元。这种DIY玩具就像热蛋糕。这里有一些全新的导航玩具,是Monkey King制作的。这里还有一些穿戴的东西,你可以将它放置在墙上。这里有一个小钉子,可以将不同的部件组合在一起,你知道。这似乎是非常有趣的事情。还有机器人小孩,很少有人用机器人小孩来做展览,这非常有趣。

这些玩具非常畅销,许多人在排队购买。实际上,让我们来看一下你发过来的视频,昨天晚上人们在排队。因为预期可能会有超过130,000人来,但是只有几千人符合所谓的Hall H身份,与VIP一起观看这些影片。所以你只能在外面,你看到所有的人在外面排队等候入内,对吗?跟我说

一下这一点。他们在那里排队多久了?他们正晚上都在做什么?

Well, listen to this. 163 million dollars. That's the estimate, right now the latest estimate for what kind of impact this one convention, this just lasts several days, has in San Diego. In fact, San Diego itself is now on a battle to hold on to this convention up against Anaheim in L.A. and some other cities that really want it cuz even if it means some Klingons running around your town for a while, who doesn't want that economic impact? We have someone inside right now, our most viewed iReporter ever, Chris Morrow who is here with us, joining us by Skype. Chris, are you there?

I'm right here. Thanks for having me.

There you are. Awesome. Thanks for being here. All right, set the scene for me. Tell me what's around you. What are people doing? What's everyone excited about?

Well, I have to tell you, I am in geek central, and I'm so happy about it, you know. These are my people. And this is a lot of fun. There are over 130,000 people here at Comic Con. It's just about to start this morning for the entire weekend, and you're going to see costumes and you're going to see different designer toys. You're going to see platform toys, things that you've never seen before, as well as, you know, comic books, digital comic books, apps for your iPhone. You're going to see a lot of other things, like movies of Angelina Jolie, who knows, maybe Brad Pitt will show up.

I know people are excited about Angelina being there. Tina Fey is going to be there, Sylvester Stallone and Harrison Ford. What are you holding? What are we looking at? What's in your hand, what is that?

This is what you call a do-it-yourself toy. You buy it. This is from Jermaine, it's called a veil. And you buy it and you paint it up yourself. So do-it-yourself toy. It's a lot of fun. I think it's about, I don't know, 200 dollars.

Two hundred dollars for something you have to paint yourself?

Two hundred dollars, something you paint yourself and you know in five years, this could be a thousand dollars. These are going like hot cakes, the do-it-yourself toy. There's a brand new platform toy out and this is from Monkey King. And this is something to wear, you can take it and you can put it on a wall. It's got a little peg right here, and you can put different ones together, you know. It's a kind of little fun thing. And then you've got the kid robots and, you know, you've got fun little toys exhibited with kid robots. So, uh, what?

And these sell big time. There are people lining up to get these. Actually, let's go to some of this video that you gave us, people lining up last night. Because the way it works is you have to get more than 130,000 people expected to come, but there is only a couple thousand that fit what's it called Hall H into where a lot of these VIPs are going to be with the movies, so you are outside, you saw all of these people already lining up to try to get in early, right? Talk to me about that. How long have they been there? What are they doing all night?
