Well, the next Pixar windup teapot is the one I'm most looking forward to. Probably going to be WALL-E inspired.

Semi-rarity. The Pixar booth does give out aton of schwag, though usually it's posters from their latest film. At least they got organized las year. Two years ago I was almost trampled like the running of the bulls in Barcelona. They hand out 1 per person, but since they give them several times a day during the exhibition, you may end up with several. Here's a look at them:

Swag Attack: RenderMan Walking Teapots
Pixar Teapots

The only one not mentioned is the 2007, the Ratatouille one (it has a chef hat on top). Maybe after SIGGRAPH I can see if anyone has some extra old ones for swapping.

Apart from the teapot, I'm still looking for a t-shirt that fits women. Everybody seems to give away free shirts for men that look like a tent on me. Last year's light blue Siggraph lady shirt, otoh, was awesome.

We plan to give out really nice t-shirts at our booth 1437 this year (Trinity3D.COM) that are vray themed. I'll save the design as a surprise for the show. But stop by and mention you are from CGTalk to grab one! And we definitely got a lot of them in size M so that it can fit women. If it still is not small enough, a good hot wash and dry ought to shrink these cotton Tees another 20%

Question Schwag times?

Anyone know of any official times for the schwag giveaways? I know Pixar had certain times for the posters and teapots, and Google had specific times for their shirts.

The only giveaway times I know are from Animation Mentor and that is Tuesday and Wednesday at 1:00, they aren't saying what they are giving out, just that it's LE.

I know last year some of this info leaked early, thanks ahead of time!

I have this problem too. However, if you are feeling particularly creative, do a google search for "t-shirt surgery" or "re-crafting". There are tons of sites that tell you how to "mod" a t-shirt. Here's one as an example. Just the tip of the iceburg.
