Re: Monstermania new authentication service and mail ins

Did anyone at the Hunt Valley MM put this to use? I saw a table where I guess they're were issuing COAs but I didn't see a single person stop there. Seemed like a total waste of time and space, at least on Friday eve.

Re: A Much More Manageable MonsterMania

Looks like a lot of fun. I'm curious with Ashley Lawrence, did they allow people to use flash for pics? For years she wouldn't allow pics because she supposedly had an eye condition and camera flashes bothered her. I even got scolded by her handler once for using flash to take a pic of someone (with...

Woof. That's a bad guest list so far.

Re: MonsterMania parking

I haven't even tried to park at MM in years. I stay at a hotel in the area and take an Uber/Lyft. The parking at the hotel is terrible.

Quick Steel City Con report

While I wasn't impressed with the overall guest list, SCC had a couple people I wanted to meet. Notably Danny Lloyd and Bruce Dern. Both were very friendly, although Lloyd was very overpriced at $50 a sig. Dern was $30 which I thought was a huge bargain. While there, I also got sigs from Barbara Ede...

Re: Monster Mania 39 Mess: "The Altamont of Horror Conventions"

To a lot of the people on here, no need to debate, MORE is MORE, I get it. For me, less is definitely more. This stuff was fun in the 90s' and 00's when it was niche. It's becoming a racket and too mainstream for me. I'm with you, Mikey. I go these shows to meet people I loved/admired growing up. I...

Re: Monster Mania 39 Mess: "The Altamont of Horror Conventions"

If he did this, I'd be freaking ecstatic! There ya have it...the horror people want horror names and they are happy with it being an all horror show even if no "Big" names are booked. I am not about trying to fill up cast posters with minor characters and all, but this seems very big in the horror ...

Re: Monster Mania 39 Mess: "The Altamont of Horror Conventions"

go back to how it all was when it started and make this a simple horror show with no major guests other than maybe Robert Englund type names of the horror world.....not good for people on here, but the horror peeps and his loyal followers will be there for sure. I expect Englund at the next show wi...

Re: Monster-Mania 39- March 9-11, 2018- Cherry Hill, NJ

Some of these prices are crazy. I can't believe Ted White is $40. And Dreyfuss was $40/$60 at Steel City in Dec.

heelorton79 - I paid for autographs from all of the celebs pictured. Only Kimmy/& Harry's manager charged me extra ($20) for a snapshot of them solo.

Steel City Report

I don't think I've ever written a report here. I started going to Cons in 2009 and went crazy at horror themed conventions. Life stuff came up in 2012 and I dropped from 5-10 shows a year to 1 and sometimes none. This year I'm getting back into things and decided to hit the Steel City Con since it's...

Re: Now Biff, don't (Steel City) Con me!

Thanks. I was just curious. I saw several people walk away when they heard the price. I think he'd have made much more money with a combo discount.

Re: Now Biff, don't (Steel City) Con me!

Did he charge you $50 for the selfie too? His manager tried to get a buddy of mine to drop another $50 for a selfie after paying $50 for a sig. He passed. I wondered if they changed the policy later considering his line was pretty dead.
