NYCC 2012: Views From The Floor

By Mike — Monday, October 15, 2012

The big show is over and we've uploaded over an additional 100 photos for your viewing pleasure of the NYCC exhibit floor. I love browsing the dealer booths in hopes of finding a good deal on a few older or vintage pieces that I need in my collection, and while I don't have $60,000 in spare change to bid on a copy of Avengers #1, the looking and picking are always fun from t-shirts to posters, and of course, plastic.

NYCC: Droids, Banks, And Other Galactic Tidbits That's Not Hasbro

By Mike — Thursday, October 11, 2012

Autumn in New York is a beautiful thing. For fans of pop culture, the season brings their own east coast Comic Con.  It's Preview Day, and because it's in Mid-Town Manhattan on a Wednesday, the foot traffic was not the critical mass that San Diego normally is. For this website, not having to cover Hasbro on a show of this magnitude is a little weird, but Hasbro's absence are DC and Mattel's gain, particularly if you're a Batman fan and collector where new figures from DC Direct and Arkham City were prominent. There were some Star Wars reveals from other licensors like Kotobukiya and Diamond Select, and they're not bad at all. But Gentle Giant and Sideshow were also absent and there was  clearly less Star Wars than the show last year.

NYCC: The HASBRO Star Wars Report - Partying Like It's 1999

By Mike — Sunday, October 16, 2011

(NEW YORK, NY) Are collectors ready to party like it's 1999? The Phantom Menace arrived with much hoopla and high, even unrealistic, expectations when it was released over 12 years ago and for many ushered in the era of CGI and Jar Jar hate. Will time and 3D be more forgiving towards Episode I?
