    They're apparently asking $500. Granted, this includes a bunch of swag (that itself promises a single item worth $125), but I'm not sure how that price is justified.

    I'm not really a fan of IDW but this sounds more interesting than anything Botcon has announced so far.

    As expensive as it is, I do think it would be worth it. But I'm not going to Botcon anyway so what do I know :p

    It'd be cheaper to get a job as an IDW janitor to get an invite.

    Too rich for my blood but I thought the same think about the Golden Package last year. The cost may be needed to pay for the CEO's time. .

    Isn't that elitism by definition? Or are we talking Elite elitism? :p

    If I was going I'd be tempted, as it is I'd rather give IDW that money towards an exclusive cover for the shop and maybe have an artist or two here :)  (I'm like the halfway point between Oregon and San Diego :)  )

    Strip out all the expensive merchandise/sketches and just give me the tour bits for around $200 and I'd be tempted, but $500 is just too much, which is a shame as it's by some distance the most interesting Botcon related offering so far this year.

    ....DAMN IT. The year I know there's no way I'm going. :-( it may be a bit pricey, but I would be all over this. Getting your name in a comic book is a special sort of thrill that can't be replicated.

    Its kind of telling that Roberts and Milne aren't on the list.

    At $500 a head, I am pretty sure they can afford to fly him over.
