New York Comic-Con 2013
« on: September 25, 2013, 01:09 PM »
So, NY Comic Con is coming up in a bit over 2 weeks.  And Hasbro has made a point of exhibiting at the show as it has quickly grown into one of the biggest pop culture events of the year.  And the last time I went, Hasbro had some new figures to show off.  Will they again this year?  I'm certainly hoping so, since there wasn't that much revealed at the summer conventions.  Could we see wave 4 of the Black Series?  Maybe a hardcopy of Merumeru?  I'm hoping so.

Hasbro isn't attending NYCC this year. No Star Wars. No Marvel. No Joe. Nothing. They are doing a VIP party on the Wednesday before but no official presence at the con. I got the invite, but I suspect it will be a masturbatory exercise in all things Angry Birds Telepods.

WTF?  They're not even showing up?  **** Angry Birds.

Really?  Glad I didn't get a ticket in that case.  A Hasbro exhibit would've been my primary motivation for checking out NYCC this year.  But this makes not going okay by me.
