    So my wife an I are looking to head to New York to check out the Comicon and I was hopping those that have been could clue me in to how Transformer friendly the con is. Are there usually many dealers selling the delicious plastic crack?

    You might want to PM I Love Dinobot. I know that she's planning on going, and should be able to give you the information that you need.

    Oh thanks, throw me under the bus! :lol 

    I can't really answer this, but I will try as best I can. Comic Con isn't mainly transformers but you will find japanese transformers, probably newer stuff like Masterpeice, Henkei and Encore. Overpriced stuff that we have for retail in the states too. You'll probably find some old stuff like RID and maybe some Beast Wars.

    I've hosted a few NYC Transformers Meetup, through meetup.com, but the turnouts were so low, I stopped doing them. If any TF Fans wanna go to comic con, shoot me a txt @ galvatron1@tmomail.net. I wasn't planning on going, but who knows, if a large enuf group goes, I might be interested.

    I'll be decked out as a Ghostbuster...

    just look for the guy with a portable nuclear accelerator strapped to his back and the name tag "WYMBS"... what? I like to mix a little reality with my costume... bit me.

    my friend has a dealer booth. Heroes in Action

    best part of helping out is that i get to go to the Diamond Retailer Breakfast. Tons of free stuff. Went a few years back and got incentive covers of both JLA 1 and that Stephen King comic. Also the diamond Picard figure, a Ghost Rider figure, Batman Begins bust, the Hellboy animated DVD, and other junk. It was worth like $300.

    yea, it's a nice perk. But the coolest things are having dinner with the creators

    I'm going to guess and say you are looking for Ghostbusters. Am I right?
