What a disappointment. While it was a little better as far as lines it was not good.

No Mercy
No Lizzie's leader
No Cowboy
no Cropsy

While the Merch was much better there still could have been more. I was able to snag :
A custom Lego set subway car with Rembrandt
Original sketch of a Furies by the JAILBREAK artis
A ORPHANS t-shirt (thanks Tri)
A custom Rembrandt action Figure
4pc trading card set from Brian Kong

Only autographs was:
Guy Stevens and Andy Engel

Was awesome seeing 4NIK8 and meeting COCHESE & TRICENDER from the boards!!

Sounds like this festival is turning to shit faster than a post drinking session Saturday night curry.
"Half" the cast and "all" the punters! :cry:

LIER ONE wrote:Ok so the following has happened since the 1st announcement of the event.

1: Both Larry Gordan and Walter Hill cancel.
2: Change in venue to an MC's clubhouse. (The 1st venue was supposed to be ideal for the reunion)
3: James Remar cancels. (Guess he will make more at CHILLER)
4: Venue changes again to Coney Art Walls. (I foresee the same issues as last year which the 1st venue was supposed to alleviate. Long lines. Large un-used spaces etc)
5: One of the events of the 4 days the AMAZING (as the promoter put it) EVENING WITH THE WARRIORS is cancelled because they wanted him to pay for the event.

I know a lot of things come up but I go to a bunch of different CONS in the NY/NJ area and I have never experienced anything like this or any of the antics that the promoter has taken to FACEBOOK to post (yelling at people to buy tickets calling specific people out). He knew the chances he was taking and has to live with them. I have this feeling in my gut that after a low turnout on Friday he will either: cancel the reunion altogether, cancel Sunday and just make it Saturday (making it a mob scene again) or list other people who have to cancel. I was going to set up a booth and sell a specific item but could foresee working with the promoter would be a headache. I hope that nothing else changes. Especially for all the people from out of town.
Which specific item?
