    I live just outside of boston, and really would like to get a chance to meet a lot of you guys, but really didn't want to shell out a lot of cash for the different packages. then I saw there's a $10 general admission per day, which seemed like a good idea. is there anything that would be going on on saturday and sunday that I wouldn't be able to do?

    I saw that there's a $50 early bird on saturday, so I was wondering what the purpose of that extra $40 would be. if I just did the cheapo admission, would that still allow me to get any exclusive attendee figures? thanks for the help! maybe I'll see some of you there after all.

    Walk ins can't get the attendee figures from Fun Pub. Otherwise it's close to the same as the attendee packages, minus the dinner and guaranteed seating at panels.

    Well, not entirely true. They give priority to package holders to purchase any exclusive toys. Depending on the quantities made, it is likely that they will be sold out before any general admissions get a chance to buy them.

    Aside from that, $10 is a great deal to get into this con!

    (AK, we joined this board the same month, yet you have 46x as many posts as I. Damn that's a lot of posts....)

    It's just to give you first crack at the dealer room. If you looking for rare items you may want to get the early bird. Honestly, $10.00 is a steal. And to be in that dealer room it's so worth it. Stop by the TFW2005 table to say hello.

    Seriously, the early bird on Saturday is NOT worth it. By Saturday, the dealers have already had first crack at each other's ware and there's been the 3 hour "preview" for all pre-registrants.

    Well, there is that. However it didn't get released last year to whomever until Sunday or so.

    Postcounts got reset a yearish ago, and I got mine back, you likely didn't.

    And for a year or so I was the #2 poster after a pure spam poster.

    Haha Antagon ftw!

    In my opinion I'd rather sign up and have the lanyard and stuff just for kicks.
