I'd like to get that group op, but I imagine the price is going to be more than my level of interest can warrant. I already have the individual ops with all of them, so I'm probably not going to overpay for the ridiculous price they'll be asking.

FanExpo Dallas from the same company is this weekend.

The BTTF cast op is $384.
Lloyd, Thompson, Wilson trio w/DeLorean is $255
Fox & Lloyd is $244
Fox is $149
Thompson is $60 ($75 w/DeLorean)
Lloyd is $90 ($105 w/DeLorean)
Wilson is $70 ($85 w/DeLorean)

Fox with DeLorean is not listed.
Although it doesn't say the full cast is with the Delorean, when you add up the individual prices its $15 less than the group op which seems to be the price of including the DeLorean.

Of course, when the prices are posted for FXC, they will be listed in Canadian dollars.

:maybe:

Not as outrageous as I thought - IIRC, the Fox solo ops in Philly were $200 or more, and I think the trio ops there required one of those upper-tier VIPs. $384 is still borderline for my want level, but not entirely out of the picture.

Of course, they'd still have to get me there with a want - I'm not driving to Toronto JUST for a group op with them.

I've been heading up to Toronto and spending a ton of money at this con for the past 3 years and was going to skip this year but when the pre-sale for VIPs to renew their VIP pass (line-cutting for everything and only 300 sold) came up in December, I bit the bullet and committed. I was thrilled when they announced Jeff Goldblum. Evangeline Lilly took me totally by surprise. I'm so glad I decided on going this year.

There's a special ticketed panel with prices from $20 to $189 CAD or $1099 CAD for the "backstage pass" package that includes group photo op and autographs.
