NYCC 2012 Review

All is Quiet, The Costumes are put away (for some), The Celebrities back to their private lives and the Fan’s Dispersed….

Im talking about NYCC Oct 13, 2012 as we Paid for our membership today after erroneously being Denied press access by the convention for no reason (that’s another story soon to be on Public News so we can’t discuss it yet..YET)
But I digress and this is about my 1 Day Experience at NYCC Jacob Javits Center and its a No holds barred Review with comments from myself as well as Overheard from a few hundred people…

We arrived at 8:30Am at Jacob Javits, Entered the green Doors and were put down in the basement warehouse for the Queue where we waited from 8:30am to 9:45am and then they allowed us up into the show floor which we reached at 10am. Now I myself understand about how new york has Union Rules but for the life Of me And 30 others we can’t understand why they can not open the show floor say 1 hour earlier, say 9am and then have their panels at 10am, this would give vendor’s and extra hour of sales, it would also make the fans happier cause now they can shop and then hit all their panels. It seemed to be alot of what people were talking about in the Queue and on the selling floor. We even spoke to 8 vendors and 2 artists from Artist alley who were all for it.

Time for First Panel of day : Lost Girl Which was scheduled 10:45-12:00 I believe but werent let in until 11am same time as the Guests but it was a fantastic Panel with Zoe, Rick and of Course the awesome Ksenia Solo. I left when they announced they were cutting the panel short and went to buy the Season 1 Dvd and Autograph ticket.
Then Off to buy a $70 ticket for Autograph and Photo of the Amazing G4 Star and Playmate Sara Underwood, Ran to Another Panel which was closed after 30 mins of starting (something New?) Back up to show Floor To wait online for Sara and were Pleased at how great she was. I felt a little bad for her publicist Jared tho as Javits Security Had started bugging him to either disperse the crowd in Aisle or else..(my words). In years past it was Javits security Job to keep aisle clear so people can walk and not stop in middle of aisle but, guess they did not have anymore than 3 security members working the con. Then Ran to Get a Wrist Band for Jessica Chobot, Ran to Cosplay Contest we ran and only 2 people Showed up…, Visited the “I Never Rest” Friend of ours Alexia Anastasio and Mina, Bill Plympton, Kevin Sean Michaels and then back to the Lost girl line to hang around for the autographs. For those who do not know it is a 2 hour wait online for autographs…I felt bad for the cast because they were late due to security again being MIA and squeezed into a tiny booth to sign for their fans…I wonder if Ksenia Bought any shoes and what video Game Zoe was thinking of playing or if Rick was contemplating a new song…But anyway after Lost girl I Ran to Jessica Chobot Line and saw how long it was so went to dinner downstairs in food court for a Hour. Came back Line didn’t budge and was second to last one. Once getting to Jessica She was such a sweetheart chatting and posing with me for a photo and autograph (only seems G4 stars do that)…Then I decided to walk around a bit and talk to people of their thoughts and take pictures…also we noticed the only press around were tv camera crews. Now we will be posting ours shortly but first we want to Show off one of our Special Correspondent’s of NYCC 2012 Jessica Fisher and here is her link to her photo’s with her permission…

Repost: NYCC Review Oct 15-16 2011

Posted  on Sunday, October 16, 2011

Well We went and covered NY ComicCon Oct 14-15 and Let me tell you what a fun filled exciting day it was. I can not stress enough that this is a Convention in NY that is not only here to stay but Also One Fans Will Love. Nobody should Miss this at all. We saw a variety of panels that were thrilling and exciting and saw some great Stars and Celebrities alike, Including Eliza Dusku (Go Celtics!) Who Signed an autograph for me, Lloyd Kaufman the Genius behind Troma also was present signing Autographs, Blair Herter From G4 Tv was there signing and happy to see His fans and G4 Fans and also Showed that the East Coast isnt forgotten by the West. We also Received great artwork from Chris Burnham over at DC Comics. But we also Ran around like a nut because we couldnt bring our cameraman and other reporter along, so it was a bit stressful.
We were treated to A preview of Once upon a Time coming Oct 23rd which I suggest everyone should watch. Also Coming Nov 11, 2011 is premiere of Green Lantern animated Series which every fan will want to see, I wont tell you what happens but Don’t Miss it. Then After waiting online for almost 4 hours and missing Ghost Rider 2 and Walking Dead we made it into The Avengers. OMG what an exciting Panel that was with 4 castmembers present and G4tv’s Own Chris Hardwick (from the Nerdist Podcast) Moderating. Totally Fun, Exciting and makes you WANT to see The Avengers Now.
All in All Comic-con is a must for any pop culture Fan, Did I mention Batman:Arkham City Panel? Get that Game even if your not a gamer you’ll love it.
My only problems where behind the Curtain so to speak. I spoke with 500 angry upset Fans at 3:30pm-6:30 who like myself were stuck waiting on one line for IGN Theater with no communication as to what was going on. Some fans who came to See Ghost rider 2 or walking dead or avengers were all mixed on same like so many missed out on them due to lack of communication and putting everyone into a cattle pit. One Young lady drove 3 hrs from albany,ny to come to the convention to spend her entire day sitting online for a panel (walking dead) that she wanted to see and missed it only to leave and start heading back to albany, claiming she won’t be back. People If you have suggestions or constructive criticism write to the Con and tell them nicely, maybe they can fix these issues. I know 400 people who were ready to riot due to VIP’s Getting to bypass the line soon as they entered at 5pm over those waiting since 2pm.But watch for our full review on This next weeks Show. No negativity just an honest Fan’s review. We Will be back next year..Visit our Facebook.com/mysteryradio for the photo’s and find if your one of em. If so Contact us
