    Generally this would be spamming but I'll leave it here since it's relevant to NYC. If someone wants it locked, let me know :)

    This "convention" is worth going if you want to meet the celebs and if you are interested in paying scalper rates for collectables and comic books.

    There are very few costumed people and next to no activities.

    The main reason it is worth it is because many MEPA members will be there and we will make it FUN :)

    The above is only my opinion :p

    Hello New Yorkers. I would like to make it known to you that two members of the New Haven county, Connecticut Fan Force will be at the show. Perhaps meeting up? We are still a fledgling FF so it'll just be me and my friend TJ who is known here as BlueMilkRunner.

    You and how many other people? :p


    I'll have my custom made Darth Vader black T-shirt that says, "You don't know the power of the darkside." I created it, and no one else should have one. My friend will be wearing a shirt with Chewbacca on it, also custom made, that reads, "Have you hugged your wookie today?" I will also be wearing a blue Star Wars hat.

    Heres a pic of me for further reference. I'm on the far right.

    Thankee! Chicks dig a guy who's not afraid of showing his feminine side. LOL!

    If I was "throwing the horns" in the pic, you wouldn't be able to handle yourself.

    See, because I'm cool yet I'm hot. I'm both. I'm....

    HOOL!

    Be careful of what you wish for Sam. T-minus 6 days and counting.

    Be scared. Be very scared. [face_devil]
