Re: nWo Reunion - Only top 100 bidders will receive photo op

It does say "general tickets coming soon", but if the ONLY way to get the group op is this bidding bullshit, than they're leaving money on the table. If they just named a (high) price for the group op and sold it on its own, they'd sell more than 100 of them, and you wouldn't scare fans off with car...

The Midnights are great adds, but I wish somebody would book Condrey to come with them.

Yes, you should definitely buy a plane ticket to a startup con that has a huge name booked - what could possibly go wrong?

Re: Alamo City Comic Con - Oct 26th-28th 2018 - San Antonio, TX

Maybe they decided that he was only doing photos for the VIP package and pulled the individual photo op tickets? If that's the case, it looks like you have to pay the full $800 in order to get anything at all from the guy.

Re: Will we see a crash in pricing?

Personally I think Chiller already tested what AJLe says. Their guest list isn't exactly the greatest, yet they seem to draw people no matter. Yeah, and NYCC sells out before announcing a single paid autograph guest, and would still sell out if they announced ahead of time that there would be zero ...

SummerSlam going to Toronto in 2019

Even though it was local, as a fan I'm not really big on major PPVs always being in the same location like they were with Barclays, and LA before that. I'd rather see it in different cities from year to year, and Toronto is still driveable if I really wanted to go. Odd they went with the smaller are...

Re: Debating Kane, RF, Pedo's, and more

That was my whole point - if there was no pedo incident and RF still owned it, then "business as usual" likely does NOT involve Sinclair Broadcasting, it just involves Rob, Gabe, and whoever else was involved in the front office at the time. Without Silkin and Sinclair's money, ROH was just a region...

Re: Will we see a crash in pricing?

I understand and agree with what you're saying about the different types of combos Vs different gas, but my analogy is meant to address the "need" aspect of it. Everyone needs gas so if gas prices go up people will still buy gas. Some people's desires for combos is so great that they also "need" co...

Re: Debating Kane, RF, Pedo's, and more

Well, if RF still owned it (and never tried to pick up a 14 year old) that would mean that Cary Silkin and later Sinclair Broadcasting did NOT ever own it, which would mean that they would likely not have the TV distribution deal they have now, nor the financial backing, which also likely means no N...

Re: Will we see a crash in pricing?

Terrible analogy - people need gasoline, but there's not a million different types of gasoline that people either love, hate, or are indifferent to, they just want gas from any convenient source. In this hobby, each and every guest has their own individual market, and some of the fans might flock to...

Re: Will we see a crash in pricing?

AJLe, I agree. Arnold I wasn’t surprised walkthrough his pricing as I assumed it would have been close or more than Stallone from a few years ago. Moranis I’ll be curious as I was expecting him to be in the $100-$150 range. I had a similar gonwith horror guests with over pricing. We had a horror co...

Re: Will we see a crash in pricing?

Well, there's not just one "market" for prices - for example, when I first got Robert Englund 10 years ago, he was $25/graph and doing free photos at the table. Now, I hear he's $100/graph and pro photo only, yet his lines aren't any shorter. So that "market" doesn't so any signs of going down, let ...

Re: Monster Mania 41- September 28-30, 2018- Hunt Valley, MD

RF got INSANELY lucky that the group that popped him did the sting without working with the police. A year later, the same group created To Catch A Predator. At this point, the RF stuff is ancient history that won’t be held against him to the masses. It is an event that happened 15 years ago where ...

Re: Monster Mania 41- September 28-30, 2018- Hunt Valley, MD

If he was running as a major congressional or Presidential candidate, his political opposition would pick up on the Feinstein story and being associated with him would be a problem. He could explain away a photo by saying RF was one of many fans who paid to be in his line, but if stuff came out that...

Re: Monstermania new authentication service and mail ins

How many people actually roll up with more than a few items? I mean, Henry Thomas on Friday had one crew with like 18 pieces, though they let me ahead of them. It's very rare. It could possible be an issue with guests who are in multiple franchise movies, like Englund, or fresh/rare names who are c...
