I bought tickets, still on the fence about going though. I'll be on the east coast at that time in November, not sure if I'll want to pay holiday airfare prices yet, will probably have to wait for some more previews to slip out that sell me.

opinions (remember student budget):

just Sat for  $20

add party for $35 OR
add Sun for $15 OR
no party or sunday OR
VIP

obviously- i'm not into the exclusives-

I can't speak for the party, but I've noticed that VIP badges have been up for the entire time that they have been on sale. I have a feeling there will be tons of VIP, so I'm not sure the "early access" is going to be worth the VIP charge if you aren't into exclusives.

I could have swore they said that ticket prices will raise at a certain point in November. They mentioned it on their Instagram feed, but I can't seem to find it anymore. They may have changed their mind, but just something to note in case it is still in effect.

I'm having the feeling I'll just buy a Sat tix. And leave early afternoon on Sunday-

unless a 'friend meetup' happens /always interested in all-u-can-eat BBQ ;) /

but haven't got tix yet

are folks interested in a meet up?

We did just Saturday, I felt like 1 day would be enough. We didn't do the party. We might be open to a meetup! Depends on when though since we are planning some other stuff while we're in town (Disneyland, etc).

I’ve got all 3 days so definitely interested in a meet up, maybe we can do dinner like we do at Wondercon? I skipped the party, but if anyone goes, let me know how it was.

 it's done-
i got a VIP so i'll be arriving Friday for vip nite & leaving on sunday

LOL the mondo booth may or may not have played a huge part in my decision.

I believe the Marriott hotel has a buffett, it's like $25 per person. to my mind it was worth it
I don't think they take reservations. You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login what happened during WC?

if we can't get reservations then, we'll all have to meet at a specific time & wait for a table - there might be some wiggle room but essentially I think that is the deal. the marriott is just so simple and good-

I set up a contract with the restaurant for WC and guaranteed a certain total dollar amount.

If you only have a few people, you should be able to just show up.

List of exhibitors to watch for the Mondo-inclined...

Galleries
Mondo, duh.
Cyclops
Static Medium
Spoke Art
Hero Complex
LandLand

Artists
Gary Pullin
Danger
Francavilla
Mike Saputo
Kevin Tong
Richey Beckett
Tim Doyle
NC Winters
Edmiston
Tobin
Sara Deck
Scott C
Alex Solis

I'll be honest, Mondo (and prints) are my main reason of wanting to go. Seems like a few DesignerCon veterans are in their feelings about the addition of so many non-designer-toy artists, but it seems like a perfect combination to me.

That being said, wouldn't it be crazy if Mondo pulled a fast one and only brought items for their toy lineup?! Haha!  :o

Mondo recently went to a Gaming Convention and only took their games +1 nongaming print.
I wouldn't think their booth focusing on the figures would be that out of the question.

Me either, but Danger keeps telling everyone to go to DesignerCon this year since Mondocon is on hold until next year. He says it jokingly of course, but with the number of Mondo artists in attendance, I'm hoping they bring a nice selection of prints. Maybe we'll get the S&V Jackie Brown that evaded us at Comic Con this year.

Speaking of their non-gaming print, I wish they would do a SDCC poster like they did for GenCon this year, gig-poster style.
