Trying but with new baby #2 hard to get away. Looks amazing and afraid last chance to get there before it gets too crazy & commercial as SDCC. Since allowing Funko collaboration and Mondo in a lot more talking about it.

and not 100% sure but I think maybe a hyperstoic event?

That looks damn impressive. We went last year for the first time and am almost wishing we had waited for this year instead.

I'll be going. VIP ticket access sounds like a good deal, if I get bored I can just head over to Disneyland/CA Adventure anyways.

Got my VIP ticket. Lineup looks fantastic. I've never been to Mondo Con, but this seems like it could be a similar vibe with who's going to be there.

This is going to be a great time and hopefully not the fudge show that Comic Con is.

Lies are a funny thing. They slip through your fingertips because they never happened to you. Time wounds all the heals as we fade out of view

lol - it used to not be a sh!tshow, this year it will be a full blown sh!tshow due to all the new people coming from Austin and other parts who think they are gunna make small fortune - I'll be honest most of you people coming thinking the offerings are gunna be like mondocon or SDCC are probably gunna be bummed. dCon revolves around vinyl figures and design, not really focused around pop culture movie posters, but hope all you newcomers enjoy. :wink:

Hey, don't listen to those guys above, go, buy everything you can... ..then let me know I'd be happy to take it off your hands :)

But they are right, maybe the Funko Cereal boxes, Mondo pieces but the rest you are taking a gamble on. I've been able to get pieces under retail because too many flippers.

I will gladly pay a markup if I can't get the Alex Solis piece maybe others such as Colus online before or after the show might help pay for your time.
