    I was trying to find that info lol.

    But yeah only the elitest of the elite could afford to get the Golden ticket. you get to flash your pretty pin around and absorb all the tears of haters all around.

    It's beautiful.

    A lot of rage last year was going around the boards because of it.

    I figured posting an updated thread about it we could see how it all went down. :)

    75 people are hardly going to cause drama and I can't even remember if they sold them all.

    If I had the money I'd probably buy one myself just to avoid lines, get good seats and have a chance to meet the guests one on one.

    Honestly I loved it. Lines were short. Seatin for panel is guaranteed and I was able to hook some people up on the boards as well who wanted figures while still able to keep some for myself. Also got one on one time with the special guests and pre autographe prints from everyone that was there.

    Even though it was intended to benefit only ticket holders, does it make the convention better overall? With that extra money FunPub could use it for a better overall convention with better line management, panel organization, etc.

    FunPub is going to use the money for themselves. They didn't do it for us.

    WOW...THREE large to get a pre preprinted litho and a signed bot shot...and some accelerated pickup time....

    you could probably ebay the bot shot for maybe $100 if you are lucky.

    then you are just short TWO large...
