Ok, I got my press pass.

What that means for the guys in the NYC area or that are attending the show?  A JD.com get together of some sort with at the minimum the site buying the first round, maybe dinner.  I'll need one of our "locals" to give us ideas. 

What that means for the guys not in the NYC area wanting coverage?  Sadly it is me and not one of the other guys with some photography training....so grainy pictures of stuff I like or find funny.

We have plenty of time to teach you about the macro zoom, Paul!  :D

Depends on how pricey you want to get.  ;) I'll defer opinions as I'm new to the area and really don't know the area of the Con.

Should be fun.

I'm wondering what Paul's getting into at the show.  :-*  Watch out for Howard Stern's crew doing mock interviews, is my advice.  ;D

They need to watch out for us doing our own mock interviews.

Going by the SDCC schedule, Hasbro presented on Friday.  I'm hoping they do the same this year.  I will look around for some places close to the Javitz center, then send them around.  I really would like to meet some of you this year.---Mike

Would Hasbro have it stuff on Saturday, too, or is it a one day deal? I was thinking stuff might happen on Friday and maybe I'd be able to slip down then (since Mom-in-law will be in town to watch the kids) to see it.

Let me know when you guys are around. I'm not sure if I'll be attending the show this year, but I'm definitely interested in grabbing a drink or two.

If Hasbro has a display, then it's usually there the whole weekend.  But presentation/sildeshow/Q&A deal (if there is one) would most likely be Friday based on the past cons like a few others have said...

Thanks, Jeff.

I also remembered about this website my wife was recommended: www.menupages.com. Might be useful in finding something.

Has there been any official word on what those exclusives mentioned in their press release will be? I'm guessing they just made more of the SDCC stuff and are hesitant to say until the last possible moment.

Thanks for the email. Did you get my response?
