    @BleedingEdges Oh, you make Bearrito! I’ve yet to meet you in person, but Amy talks highly about you! I’ll have to stop by and introduce myself this year!

    @eckotyper and @jvles I’m gonna check out both those spots for coffee DCon weekend, too. Can never have too many solid coffee recommendations!

    Very happy that DCON has surpassed SDCC. Congrats to the true artists.

    Glad they put sour lemon and Paul kaiju next to each other. I'll likely be spending all day Saturday in that corner.

    Still enough artists that I'll grab the two day pass, but not enough to justify the vip.

    Picked up VIP passes for me and my girl, I was already planning on taking work off on Friday so I figured I might as well go to the preview night

    MVP status, is this a joke? I wish it was. Mark Hamill Pops for everyone!

    There have been a lot of little things that have pushed Dcon away from being the individual designers, toymakers, and artists con. I think this is just another 1 of those things. It's a cash grab and makes Dcon feel like every other convention that has become bloated and overcrowded. I can't really blame them and there will always be a place for individual/smaller artists at every con. It's just disheartening as Dcon was made successful by these type of individuals who seem to have been mostly forgotten and replaced by Medicom or Funko. The addition of an Artist Alley type area, with smaller and more affordable booths, only reinforces this idea. I still love Dcon, I'm just worried for its future and what exhibitors will stick around.

    Looking back to SDCC around 2009 is kinda where I see Dcon right now. Tons of vendors I collect. Almost everyone I know who collects toys is attending. Then jump to 2014-15 SDCC and there's a huge drop off. All the toys I collect are gone, or have offsite events. No one comes out anymore(myself included), except to those offsite events. I'm sure this has all been said before, and I know we're the minority. It's just tough to see something so good change into something I question going to. But when it all comes down to it, yes I'll be there as a vendor again.
