I was just using the concert/teen thing as an example. I agree that most people buying VIP are adults/parents LOL

I understood that, but still applies, you know tickets are on sale you make funds available. If your parents are a bank, that you have to give funds to then you have to do what you have to do.

I get sold out of a lot of things, sometimes you get that ticket someimes you don't. Last year there were only 800 Special Access tickets andn 200 UL tickets, that is not a lot. Even if they expanded that amount a bit you have to luck out just like anything else

I think I'm going to get a couple of 4day badges I case I decide to go. At least I can resell them since they don't do refunds

It's funny cause tyickets are available for months and months then all of a sudden they all sell out over a weekend and individual day tickets sell for more than 4 days. I even know people who go like 2 days then sell the ticket to someone for sunday and break even

Did not know you can resell the NYCC badges. Can you sell those on like eBay or Craigslist?

Was thinking of waiting to see if I can get SDCC badge.

a couple of years ago i sold a couple of passes on ebay.  I sold them at or below cost since i didn't want to get stuck with them. i don't remember ever seeing any language abt not selling/transferring  the badges. there is no refunds or exchanges.

By 5 PM Saturday and like after Noon on Sunday the Javitts center staff isn't even looking at your badge. They just let wave you in

Hey Alyssa,

I was looking though the 2012 NYCC thread and noticed you mentioned you were going after the walking dead signing tix, did you get them by any chance.

I saw some people were not that big of fans of that show, but this will bbe my 5th year and I have been happier and happier as each year goes on. Though I will admit the Javitts center construction was problematic last year, but this year they plan on being done so I think that will be better.


hope these images link through

NYCC announced new guests this week:

Comics:

Marc Silverstri
Scott Snyder

Entertainment:

Josh Gates (Sunday Only)

Also I was NY Auto Show last week. The construction site that was outside and inside the Javits is gone. There's still alot of construction going on 1-2 blocks away though. The whole area surrounding the Javits is being redeveloped. And is going to look much different, in few years:

I think it all depends on how you do it. If you only do a day, it's not bad. I've done a weekend was able to use hotel points. I wouldn't do 5 nights in NYC for NYCC. Plus NYC hotels are expensive all the time, it's hard to find deals in general.
