    Not that a show the size of Wizard World needs promotion but I just wanted to let everyone know we will be setting up at Wizard World next week so if you are attending stop on by and say hi.

    Just got done loading in. We will be right in the center of the room in the 800 row. Jesus what a massive place! Fridays secret handshake will be 5 up top, then low followed by a fist bump and then blow it up.

    Yeah, I WAS gonna totally ride on over tomorrow and hang out for the day UNTIL I saw that. They want $45 just to walk in. If it was still $25 I'd have gone. But since I'm not really looking for anything to buy or competing in any tourneys, I can't justify that. I'll see y'all at the next meetup. :)

    I am not saying this because we are set up, I honestly dont care if our board friends buy something from us or not but the price this time around is somewhat fair given the size and quality of the guests. If I was to complain about anything it would be the $8 turkey sandwich I had to choke down from concession. The Cosplay so far has blown our minds and everyone is telling us Saturday blows away anything we have seen so far. I would have paid $10 just to see the Black Manta costume I saw today, lol.

    OK I am coming out today. I will be wearing a black autobot shirt green shorts and a green Atari wrist band. So ... beware, mortals I shall be amoungst you. Muhahahaha!!!!

    But seriously, I hoping to find something to add to my collection. Or perhaps a reasonably priced toywiz ironman drill armor. I like drills.

    PS : if you think its me ask if I'm the Guy with the pee saber avatar. Then ill know its you guys and not act like a stalker is making contact with me. Wait ....

    Might be there around 11:00 am tomorrow with my daughter. Gotta see if the finances allow it given the hefty price tag this year.

    Yes, the cosplay this year has been... very memorable so far.

    And some other words of advice... if anyone passes the booth that is selling the japanese snacks and grab bags, do NOT buy a grab bag. For $15, you supposedly receive $25 in random snacks. Pics below...

    You'll make out better/cheaper buying everything separately from them, even with buying whole bags of the gummies and jelly cups. (Breaking the prices down from their website, the value of everything in the bag is exactly $8.96, not $25.)

    So if you walk pass that booth and eye the tempting Japanese Grab Bags, dooooon't do it! lol

    Don't hit the concession stands. Get food at Reading Terminal Market right across the street, the food is pricey but fantastic.
