Gonna try to check this out. Anyone here ever been to it?

I went in 2007. It is amazing. You will get lost and having the schedule and map glued to you is a plus. There are a lot of opportunities and free-bees!! The preview night is a very good way to get familiar with what you would consider the hot spots.

@Jhun Bug - Post pictures of it later!!

Was going to go but sadly costing of travel and everything made it hard to make the trip. Even had a family friend who had helped us and was going to help us out there.

Still contemplating this. My Mom hasn’t stopped mentioning since finding out about it. She’s never been to a con…

I really want to go to this ,but sadly being on the West Coast makes it cost way to much. Especially since half of the reason I want to go is for the exclusives. Heck I could probably spend over $300.00 at just the Hasbro and Mattel booths. Also they are premiering the Toysrus exclusive NA Masterpiece Grimlock at the Entertainment Earth booth there. True I can find it at Toysrus later ,but love to be able to pick it up right there. I also wanted to get the Molar and Skeletor set from Mattel. It will be online but with how fast Mattel’s online store sells out of stuff I’ve not been able to get one of the new Masters of the Universe figures from them.

I could go and take pictures of the stuff for ya. :stuck_out_tongue:
