Looks like the panels are free but you can pay for an online Meet and Greet and Autographs.

There are Doctor Who and Picard panels announced so far.

So this whole event confuses me... they only talk about buying meet & greets and photo ops. Where is the panel schedule? Is there any cost for badges?

Feels like they are putting the cart before the horse.

I'm not sure why they haven't put the panel schedule on this website (bad web design?), but they have been posting on the NYCC Facebook page some of the panels they have scheduled. Some of the postings said the panels are free, but some don't mention whether it costs anything. 

They're supposed to be streaming here: YouTube.com/NYCC

Here's what they have so far:

Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, and Arthur Darvill panel is at August 15 at 11:40 AM ET

Black Lightning Panel - Nafessa Williams (Anissa Pierce/Thunder) and Christine Adams (Dr. Lynn Pierce) is on August 13 at 12:30 PM ET

Q: Now it's for sure 9am pdt?

A: that’s the plan, and what we’ve been assured will happen

Q: Anymore snape being released?

A: not until New York Comic Con in October. More details to come on that as the event gets closer.


Hallmark will only be offering two of its convention exclusives at Metaverse on Thursday, Probe Droid and the Deapool itty bitty.

UPDATE: August 7, 2020
PopMinded by Hallmark will be participating in Reedpop’s Metaverse August 13-16 via an online exhibitor page that will feature links to core product shopping as well as two exclusives, the Deadpool itty bittys and The Star Wars Imperial Probe Droid. Due to the overwhelming demand of the Probe Droid Event Exclusive, additional inventory is available for sale on August 13, at 9AM PDT / 11AM CDT. Go here to purchase that directly. Item will be one per customer on a first come, first served basis while supplies last. In addition, to support this demand, we are doing a small second run to support events throughout the rest of the year, including New York Comic Con, Star Wars Celebration and our Keepsake Ornament Club members. The initial run quantities were 3,200, and we will be increasing the total run quantity to 4,700, still limiting the exclusivity of the item.

Managed to snag the probe droid. As a Hallmark crown rewards member, I also got free shipping and was able to apply this week’s $4 off coupon. 8)

I tried watching some of this, but found it depressing.

First, I don’t think ReedPop could figure out whether they wanted to associate this with ECCC, NYCC, or a completely new event. It was a week from when the rescheduled ECCC was supposed to be and some of the “guests” overlapped with the original ECCC March lineup. But they never specifically mentioned it as being a virtual ECCC. The panels were on the NYCC YouTube channel. Thy had the logos for NYCC, ECCC, C2E2, Keystone, FL Supercon, BookCon and London MCM at the top of the page. They heavily advertised the content on ECCC and NYCC Facebook pages; less so (but still some) on the pages for the other cons.

ReedPop’s websites have been one of their weakest points. They are ugly and hard to navigate. The Metaverse Website was no exception. They usually have good merch...but not for this event. Most of the t-shirt designs were sad and depressing. The only interesting thing for sale was the badge for $6. They also had merch on two different sites (there was merch on the ReedPop official webstore, and merch on the autograph/meet & greet site, some merch overlapped but not all and there was no rhyme or reason why they were split between two different sites.)

I generally avoid paid autographs/photographs completely, but noticed they had virtual meet and greets (most about 3 min.) This in itself is probably a good idea. But they were extremely expensive, even moreso than the usual price of photo ops or autographs. Most were in the low to mid $100s. Misha Collins was like $362. They also sell prerecorded messages which were a bit cheaper but still high. But as I don’t ever pay for these, I’ll defer opinions on whether they were overpriced to those who do.

Panels were free, so I can’t complain about the price but most of them were kind of depressing too...mostly Zoom meetings on an ugly background. ECCC panels are usually pretty bare bones to begin with, but with a fuzzy facecam with no audience energy they were even less enticing. The most interesting one was a live (or live recorded?) drawing by Junji Ito. For virtual cons, a screen is required, so they really need clips/previews, excellent production, or some other way to make the screen an advantage rather than an obstacle.

This may have just been a test run for their virtual NYCC.
