We're not talking about soda, folks. This forum is dedicated to Funko's stylish Pop! series of vinyl figures, with or without springs.

I may be going. I believe it is the same time the REVfest will be going on. 2 birds 1 stone. So I am trying to figure out how I can make it to NY.

Also, I believe the Toy Tokyo will have an exclusive or 2.

where are you coming from? its pretty simple to get to the javits center, if your driving in, it is litterally several block west from the lincoln tunnel, if you park in weehawken you can take a ferry there if im not mistaking

I live in the area and usually attend for work. (my company has a booth). I don't know if the 11th is professional day or if that's the first day of the con. I'm flying in from San Fran but I will be there on the 11th. Not sure if I can meet up the first day but like SDCC i recommend you get in line early. The line to get in is nuts. I'm fortunate to ave an exhibitor badge so I don't have to worry about the line.

Can't wait to see what, if any NYCC exclusive there is. I stupidly didn't get the flashpoint batman. I wasn't into pop then.

Brandon: where will you staying? More importantly is Nikki going to be with you? I am dying to meet her!
But if I know where you are staying I can try to advise on how bst to get to the con.

My company exhibits at all the big cons and we have a number of badges for staff. I usually am on a panel or attend panels on the professional day.

I'm sad about Nikki. One day she and I will meet.

B-I'll pm you some thoughts/options on where to stay in the am.

I am going to NY Comic Con. Ordered my tickets a while ago. Been getting weekly updates as to who is attending. Last one I saw that I recognized was Sean Astin. Here is the excerpt from the e-mail.

I told you to keep your ear to the ground! As promised I have another New York Comic Con Guest announcement for you. Our next Guest has seen his fair share of danger. As a Goonie, he survived the booby-trapped trail to One-Eyed-Willie's treasure and as a green-thumbed hobbit he made the tretcherous journey to Mount Doom and lived to tell the tale. His newest pursuits include fighting crime and the evil Shredder as the voice of Raphael in Nickelodeon's new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series. We're pumped to welcome Sean Astin to NYCC! Astin will be hanging at NYCC, hosting a panel and signing autographs for fans Friday to Sunday. Don't miss out on what this Guest has to say, make sure and buy your NYCC tickets before it's too late! Tickets are available online and single day tickets are now exclusively available at select retailers in the NY tri-state area.

And I would love to meet any and every board member who will be there. I have an itinerary already mapped out as I want to hit several comic book stores and the Kidrobot store in New York while I am there.

I have two four day passes (upgrading them to VIP passes this Thursday) so I am hopefully that I will be able to help a lot of board members get the exclusive piece/pieces, if they have them again this year. I plan to go and get as many pieces as I can each day and then once I am back and I have my pieces I will post how many of them I have and it will be first come first served. The price will be whatever I paid plus shipping.
Just call me Joe.

Most Wanted: Freddy Pop! 2011 -12 piece ones except Monkey

I'm going to try to go, but my wife's due date is about 2 weeks prior. I don't know if I can make it happen. If there are any exclusives and I don't end up making it, help would be greatly appreciated! :)

Think we are going to try to come up. Just depends on the budget. But I think we are going to try to make it to our first con and keep our fingers crossed for an exclusive. Probably would only be there for a day (maybe two) so if everyone that is going wanted to set up a dinner night out to meet each other. I'd be in.

JJmitMan thats a great idea everyone from the board should set up a place and time where we all can meet up and since lakebender is upgrading his pass I will also grab as many pop as I can to help out as many boardies as possible.
But I would to meet alot of you at the con to put a name to the face of alot of you awesome guy/girls on here but if we do happen to do a dinner I can make a list and we can set up the details

Ah not too far from me. About an hour drive. I'm very familiar with the area... my company used to do a lot of work in Hamilton/Trenton and I lived about 30 miles down Route 206. :)
