I'm a convention vet - been going for decades. But this time is the first time I'm going to be attending the entire show W-Sun with my nephew, who's 11 years old.

I'd appreciate any ideas or tips from folks who've gone with kids in tow, as well as any panels that might be more kid-friendly.

Thanks in advance!


Sunday was always my children's favorite day for panels when they were younger, and they liked spending a whole day in the Nintendo room.

These sets are KILLING ME every year. Definitely going to get this.

I'm a big time turtles collector but had to pass up on the NECA collections the last couple of years. I did get the Arcade edition turtles/shredder sets previously through preorder.

Had no clue the NECA booth was CASH ONLY. Thanks for the heads up! :-[

My whole issue with the "lottery vs the commitment to actually standing in line" is that now it allows more people to participate in other lines and panels that they previously wouldn't have been interested in. This just causes even more crowds in areas that could've been walk-up/walk-in.

That being said, the lottery is a blessing and a curse. My friend and I did end up getting the Deadpool and Star Wars Lego sets last year through the lottery system even though we didn't necessarily care for them, which is an entirely separate issue right there. :P

Also, not to derail the thread, over the last couple of years I've been noticing vendors using the term "exclusives" as more of a marketing tool.

I can attest to this.  I got a lottery draw to buy Lego on Sunday...and the line was stupid long.  Yet when I finally got to buy mine, they asked me how many I wanted.  I said just the one.  Isn't it limited to just one?  And the guy said nope you now can buy up to six apiece.  :-P

I can vouch for this absurd line. The cool thing was, my friend and I had two separate times for pickup but we took a gamble and got in the line for one of those times. They ended up letting us through. It was overall a smooth process.
