Have the B-list celebrity signings been announced or listed? I haven't attended WonderCon in a few years, but they used to have celebrity signings for a few B-list movies and films from the 70's and 80's that you didn't need a wristband for; they would be in designated areas of the convention center. The last year I went, they had a Superman signing. I reviewed the list and didn't see anything like that this time around. Just wondering if I missed it somewhere, or if they don't do that anymore.

A few are listed in the Quick Guide, in the Dealer's area

I love that part of WonderCon! We call it "The Aisle of Washed Up Stars" :) I remember one year(I think it was when Wondercon was in LA) we saw Chaka from Land of the Lost, The Soup Nazi form Seinfeld, and Cissy from Family Affair. And some others, too. It was quite entertaining!

Think they would be able to do a Once Upon A Time In Hollywood panel or is it pushing it since the movie comes out the following week?

Loved the Hateful Eight panel they had. Would love for a Once Upon A Time In Hollywood panel. I imagine Margot will be around anyways for Birds of Prey.

I would love a Once upon a time in Hollywood panel, just saw the trailer and it look really good.

My previous review got lost in the 36 hour purge. :( But basically, I thought it was a disappointing ECCC (although like always, it had its high points.) Of the 8 years I've been I'd rank this one #6. It took a step back in just about every area from last year. But at least the two major changes, security and new HQ hotel, went (mostly) smoothly.

Guests: At the beginning the announcements were off to a good start with the full Critical Role and Boy Meets World Casts, but then it just kind of fell flat. The big name guests that they had been hinting at (i.e. Paul Rudd) never got announced.

Main Panel Room: Partial success. The new room itself was very nice, much nicer than the former one. No complaints from me about the distance. I saw Rainn Wilson, Sonequa Martin Green, and Boy Meets World, all of which were very good. I liked that there was a ~20 minute conversation before Q&A (rather than all Q&A). The hotel was spacious and did a great job at containing the crowds -- I stayed at the hotel and never had issues having to wait for an elevator, and barely even noticed the crowds except on the con floors. But the panel room was smaller (Maybe this was why they held off on getting too many really big name guests), and it did shift the energy away from the main con and what was left in the main con felt a bit uneven IMO. The main room schedule was really messy too, with lots of holes of various lengths that never got filled. (i.e. not a neat 15-30 minutes between each panel like years before.) But I'd still like to see them use this room in some capacity in the future, even if it's not for the main panel room.

Other panels: A mixed bag. Titmouse Animation was great. But the Man of Action panels weren't that exciting -- the second one was slightly better than the first. The Official Robotech Panel was horrible, it was mostly an advertisement for their upcoming products on a really badly put together slide show. :-/ Would have liked to see the Alien short films, but it was listed as "TBA" on the schedule and I didn't hear about it until I got a push notification after it had already started. I had good luck with the panels where individual animators talked about their work (Bob Camp of Ren & Stimpy and David Petersen of Mouse Guard.)

App: This year it seemed to be more buggy than usual. The separate panels section stopped working and wasn't fixed until a day or two before the con. (This was a different section than the combined Panels + Signings section, which worked.) At least the push notifications worked fine, which was the most useful feature of the app.

Exhibitors/Exclusives: Also felt a bit downgraded from last year. Funko didn't have a standout exclusive this year like last year's Emerald Chrome Batman. No Del Rey or Boom booths. Felt a bit unnecessarily spread out this year, probably due to moving the main hall out. The big Geico booth in the corner was just plain odd. The one thing that was better is that Tokidoki had a bigger booth, with a real exclusive (Emerald Unicorno.)

Artist Alley: Excellent, as usual.

Other observations:

While we got the screenings of AMC Badlands/NOS4A2 (and are probably better than nothing), they were just screenings. C2E2 (Badlands)/WonderCon (both) are getting full panels with cast members. It feels like ECCC got sloppy seconds.

My favorite section from last year, MusicAlley, was completely axed. I didn't even see any live music panels listed this year.

Other than the usual Burlesque and Kracklefest, their "After Hours" section was a joke. The other two were discussions about Star Trek and Battlestar Galactica which should have been panels inside the convention center and not a $20 paid event. Then some event listed in Port Orchard. Also it felt like the surrounding businesses didn't get much into it as much as last year.

I can't go on opening day, because of work/family obligations. Both Angel and I have plans to attempt a visit just before SDCC.
