New York Comic Con 2011
« on: August 1, 2011, 02:46 PM »
So Hasbro said they will be at NYCC this year promoting SW.  They have been there in the past, but have not promoted anything SW.  That being said, I wonder if they will have an exclusive?

I will be there.  In fact, unless something business realted (at the Con) comes up, I will go to the Hasbro presentation and maybe even do a live blog or something.  I've gotta use my ipad for something other than skecthing!---Mike

I'll be there, but I seriously doubt I'll be doing anything but collecting comics all day, running to the car to empty the backpack, then collecting more comics. 

At least that's how it usually goes for me.

I should really make an effort to go to a con someday, especially this one since I live in the city. Plus, it'd be fun to meet some of the local JDers.

JD.com will be there.

If we get enough of us that are going to attend, I will host a little "Function" for us.

I'm thinking about going since I'm just 90 minutes away in NJ.

I'm kinda hoping that Hasbro is planning on having show exclusives. I know I should hit myself for thinking that, but it kinda goes hand-in-hand.

Would be cool to be able to get a sneak at some stuff early for a change.

I'm almost definitely attending.  Hasbro's Star Wars team being there sealed the deal for me.  I've passed on this show the past few years but that's been due much more to scheduling conflicts than anything else.  It's nice to have a show of this magnitude that's local.

And yes, the show begins on Thursday, October 13th, and runs through Sunday, October 16th.

Cool that JD will be there, too. I'll have to convince the wife to let me have some geek time (along with some spending priviledges). Any days that people will be going?

I already bought plane tickets for me and my wife.

She will be running around town while we do "geek" stuff.

But we are there from the 13th to 16th.

Passed it along to my wife and she said, "Sure, we can go." Hmm, not sure if she'd be able to withstand the sheer geekness of it all.

I will be there on and off all of the days.  My graphic novels are coming out in January, and I will be doing some unofficial promotion work.  However, I don't know what day Hasbro's panel will be but we should all try to get together for that.

Update.  I won't be there saturday.

I get professional credentials and will be there at least Saturday but, likely, all three days promoting. When the time is right, I'll let you all know what. Hopefully you'll all be interested.

Seems like a good sized group is going and alot of you guys have "Business" there.

If we can get a headcount (and feel free to bring  your "Plus 1"), I will have either a happy hour or dinner arranged if there is interest.

Heck even if JD.com buys the first Round, it would be worth it.

The wife and I will probably go on Saturday. But whatever day works for meeting up for everyone else, I'm sure I can swing downtown to meet up (since I'm only about 20min by metro).
