    I will be in New York that weekend too. Can't cover the $40.00 to get in. Will hang out with Matrix Soul in Chinatown instead.

    I would if I had one :( 

    Only person I'm bringing is my fairly geeky nephew who told me about this stuff last minute and convinced me to go by agreeing to drive us there and back all three days. Though I most certainly wouldn't mind a smoking hot wife, hell I'd be just fine with a cute girlfriend who has a good personality:confused2

    just curious,what does the guy paying $40 to enter the convention get? $40 seems like a lot just to gain rights to browse around on the dealers floor.

    are there live panels?

    any freebie stuff given away?

    any artist signing stuff?

    anything that has stuff to do with transformers?

    will hasbro,IDW,TCC club,activsion or TF Movie people be there?

    The impressions I'm getting are that this is akin to San Diego Comic Con, just not as big. There's a massive number of guests for ones, panels, etc. Any con in NYC will be huge; they're the only ones that can afford it.


    Oh, and I'll be going with my gf, likely on Saturday.

    ^ this. In addition, if you're actually interested in, say, industry connections or job hunting, there's a lot of stuff for that, things like panels, meetups, workshops, and so on. Two years ago there was a GREAT one on how to handle your finances and insurance as a freelance artist/writer

    You also get to go to a lot of free screenings of new TV shows/movies, there's stuff like videogame demos (two years ago I got to play Prototype and Ghostbusters before they came out; and I got free T-shirts and posters out of this), Dungeons and Dragons tournaments, entertainment... you actually get a lot of value for your money, no lie.


    Also, suffice to say I'm going. I plan to write up a formal report on the Hasbro/IDW panel, particularly since I'm actually there to do research for a nonfiction book.

    That's great, I was going to take notes in fear of little to nobody covering this like the SDCC panel(I still will take notes) but nice to know I'm not the only one & if I miss something it may be out there.

    Was browsing over the site some last night and found that they let you more or less keep track of all the panels, events and exhibits you're interested in. After giving the entire schedule a good once over, I ended up with a pretty full list of things to do. It's not as big as SDCC, but they managed to cram all the important things into this one.
