NYC Comic Convention 2007





DAY 1 - Friday


I was a bit excited about the Con .. so I took an even earlier LIRR train in.
The poop about the Friday's entry time was 4pm for the pre-ticket holders.
I knew there would be massive lines though ..



So anyway .. these are not my pix from on line .. because I never got in any line .. ..
I wanted to get in at 12:00 take a slow walk up to the Javits Center ..
and get there about 12:30 .. but with the earlier train I got to the Javits Center about 11:15am ..

I found out they weren't letting peeps inside yet to even form a line to get in ..
after I checked my coat . Then was told to get in I would have to get on that massive line ..
they don't know me very well .. do dey ..

So .. I scoped out the place to see where I could sneak in ..
by 12 I decided to hang out with a few other peeps that started to
form a line inside by the entrance .. until they started to get nasty.

I happened to have my Toy Fair badge from 10 days ago in my bag ..
so I proceeded to find a sales manager .. and talk my way in .. since
trade peeps are gaining entry at 1pm. So ... BAMMMMM !!!! I'm in ..
as long as I don't come back out of the show floor until after 4pm ..
when the little people get in ..


I raced over to the Flopadoodle booth .. to enter the lottery for the Tim Biskup's Hand-Painted Big Pollards ..

Sket won one on Saturday .. too cool ..

Then over to the Toy Qube booth to get the Billy Bananas stuff .. where I got to meet Keith Poon ..


Then back over to the Toy2R booth next to Flopadoodle .. for BHF's stuff ..
see Wendy hanging out with Tim Biskup next door ..

Then back over to Toy Tokyo to get my GLOW Kubrick Cereal Monster .. and talk to Liev ..

Man are these Bags getting heavy ..
Then I can't pass up on the Monkey Boy though later in the day ..
and get Frank Cho to sign and doodle on him .. I got the red/white/blue one a NY exclusive ..


I haven't gotten to talk to Jim yet .. but did get him to do a doodle in the doodle book ..

Then I finally got to pick-up the Billy Bananas and Print for a buddy .. Adam ..
and pre-order the XRAY Version of Billy .. which looks AWESOME !!!



Then .. they let all the peeps in .. even some peeps I knew ..
I talked to the big guy in the middle .. Bernie ... just a few
minutes before they let them all in to get him a set of Kubrick's GLOWS ..






Chris scored bigtime at the Toy Tokyo Booth .. SHAG BABY !!!




We all roamed around together checking out all the cool stuff ..
