    No Mego presence. You can thank NYCC bosses for that.

    Yeah...NYCC is not something I ever want to attend again. $50 just to get in the door. For basically SDCC lite. Way too much flash and not enough substance. My last one was 2 years ago. I enjoyed the hell out of Artist Alley...but the main floor was just a no go as far actually buying anything that I can't get cheaper anywhere else. I understand having to pay for the booths...but give me something that might be worth looking at and possibly buying...and they just don't have it at NYCC. East Coast Comic Con and Baltimore are the ways to go in my opinion.

    I went to NYCC Comic Con about 5 years ago. While it was ok, I wasn’t impressed. It was so jam packed with people that you were headed through each aisle like cattle. It was difficult to stop at any particular table on the main floor. If you dared to stop, you were so crowded and felt so rushed that you couldn’t even think, much less buy anything. It was an expensive day for a stampede.

    Wizard World does a good show in Philly, and a lot of guys come down from the NYC area because of the reasons cited above. It's much more manageable and still sizable enough to get some good artists and speakers. Of course there are still times when you wonder if they've ever done this before with some organizational issues, but I suppose that happens when you've got mostly volunteers working the show.

    That's how i feel at the FanExpo in Toronto, it's expensive to exhibit so you see $200 Captain Kirk dolls.

    My kids however, are in heaven.

    The Mezco 1:12 Dr. Strange NYCC exclusive for this year looks great, because it uses the design of his first appearance costume. I have one on order, but didn't bite on the Ronin Wolverine/Logan. It really does look great in the photos, hopefully I can still find one at an affordable price.

    same here, went 6 years ago and would never go back. they cram far too many people in there. if there was ever an emergency like a fire or terrorist attack, people would be trampled to death

    Yeah, you’re right. Awfully expensive price of admission for those poor conditions. My brother-in-law wanted to go, so we stayed for a few hours, but I was sure happy to get out of there.
