NYCC already doing damage control

"Hey, everyone. This is a separately ticketed NYCC Presents event & does not take away from any panels he may be doing at NYCC"

operative word 'may'

but this is the second booboo NYCC has made with Hamill

I hope to god that NYCC doesn't go the way of paid panels. And wow did those front seats sell out fast, did anyone see how much they costed?

I'm considering some of those balcony seats, $14 looks like the lowest price and that seems somewhat reasonable (although free, like most panels, would be nice).

Honestly, I'd love him to do a free panel too, but that would probably cause just as much backlash (from people who bought tickets to this one).

I think NYCC is playing a bit to coy with their wording.

"...any panels he may be doing at NYCC"

come out and say either he is or he isn't. cause you are going to face backlash no matter what the answer is

i got the first row of the $49.  They're on the floor, but I doubt I'll be able to see much.

I"m watching those front row seats appear and disappear and appear again as people think about it then realize they should not be dumb.

I can't believe they are charging for any seat in this panel. My opinion of ReedPop continues to plummet.

I bought one of the first balcony.  It's actually comparable to how much I paid when the Bolshoi was in town.

To be fair they have been doing NYCC Presents (Formerly called NY Super Week) for a few years now. I think the difference is A. at first they did not do a good job as presenting this as a 'NYCC Presents' item. Yes the graphic has that at the top but the email subject doesn't. B. He is autographing at the show so I think people have a semi fair expectation that he will also have a panel like in other years as well and that is part of the ticket.

Considering that Hammerstein is a big hall and they are charging for the ticket my bet is the 'any panels he may be doing' is as of right now none.

At this point they are damned if they do damned if they don't

I just want to see if people are complaining to Hamill on twitter and what his response is

RE: The first row. I was watching those seats become available and unavailable. I think people just wanted to click on it.

I don't really consider this a paid panel at NYCC, since you don't have to have NYCC badges to attend. But it would suck for those that did buy NYCC badges, if this was the biggest or only panel he did during NYCC.

Anyway, Mark tweeted this out:

Even if he does do a panel as part of the con too, there's something to be said for having a set seat and not having to stand in the inevitable hours long line to try to get in to see him on a con panel.
