They ticket sales are up:

It's pretty much the prices we've heard before

Stallone is $395 for an autograph and $445 for an photo op.
Moretz is $75 for an autograph and $95 for a photo op.

Both are only appearing on Sunday.  They are also doing mail orders.

Im not cheap or anything, I just think that almost $500 for a picture is a bit much

I can't fathom spending that much on JUST a photo or a signature.

Spending more on just a pic or autograph than you'd spend on tickets to go to the Con? No thanks.  :o

He's going to be very bored just sitting there when NO ONE shows up to buy an op from him. Only random people who do not follow info online that will turn right away when they find the price

He will have people. The tickets are being sold in advance, for autographs and photo ops. Someone on NYCC FB said already purchased photo ops tickets. Another forum a couple people posting about splitting photo ops.

Celebrity Authentics says Stallone tickets are already half sold out.

Btw this probably won't change your minds about charging high. But some of the money tickets is going to a charity. According to the website:

"A portion of the proceeds from each ticket is being donated to You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login, a non-profit organization that teaches horseback riding to children and adults with disabilities to improve specific medical conditions."

He's also not shaking any hands:

"Please note: Due to his filming schedule, in an effort not to catch cold or flue there will be no handshaking.  Thank you for your understanding.'

So if you pay $450 for the photoop is there a distance between the two of you. Do you actually get to stand in the same frame with him or is the photo op you telling him how to pose.

For $400, I would expect to be allowed to make out with Stallone.

I would still expect some meaningful glances or light petting or something.

would you settle for a wave ;)

I'm sorry but I can't help but LOL at the "cold/flu" thing. Every celeb (well I'd say 80%) at SDCC is filming something yet they have no issues shaking hands or giving hugs or whatever.

No that is bulls**t. Someone of that body type who works out should have a high immune system. It's the same reason I work out more before going to a con to avoid con plague. A person would have to have a serious disease to get him sick.

At least the tickets are being sold by a 3rd party website so people don't have more fingers to point at reedpop.

Stan Lee is a rock star with the number of shows he attends.  Particularly at his age.

I might have to try for a signing/photo op if he does one.
