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

Post by AJLe » December 9th, 2017, 10:32 pm

Went over the Pittsburgh for Steel City Con, to finish up Tom "Biff" Wilson from Back to the Future. I had gotten my BTTF items done previously through send-ins, but had never met him to get a photo op. Made my way to the show, and got a Biff 8x10 (which I'll probably eventually add Crispin Glover onto, since I have to meet him again anyway someday) and got my photo op. He was very friendly, and at least somewhat into being there, so everything worked out well in the end.

LOL, no - the Phelps twins from Harry Potter were next to Biff, but from the angle the photo was taken, their line looks like it was leading to Biff's table.

The funny thing is, I was just talking to a buddy of mine about how my photo turned out, and the first thing I said was "Damn, that picture makes it look like that huge line behind me was for Biff!" :hahaaa:

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.

He was $50 for anything - sig or selfie. No combo discount, so he was $100 for a combo.

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.

I think his price definitely hampered his business. He did good, but looking around the room, IMO he should have came in at a lower price, and he would have done much better.

To put things in perspective, he was essentially the same price as Dreyfuss (who was actually LESS than Biff, since he did a combo discount), the Phelps twins and the Star Trek people, and all of those people had consistently much longer lines than Biff did.
