    looks like theyre trying to stop scalping with some new steps you have to go through to buy your tickets, this year.

    You now have to fill out a Fan Verification form.

    Deadline is June 13th and you must do it to get an email link to purchase tickets. And everyone you buy a ticket for must have an ID for you to enter, if youre buying for multiple people.

    It makes sense to not sell at stores anymore, it was always a clusterfuck.

    More hoops to jump through to evade the scalpers.

    I filled out the form.

    There's not much to it. The standard name/address/email/phone, plus what you're looking forward to survey type questions. I figured it would've been longer based on the description.

    Who knows!

    Once again, I'm passing on it due to the fact that NYCC is HUUUUGE. ......and I hate large crowds so much.

    Still patiently waiting for someone to organize a toy show on the east coast.

    Hopefully, it will streamline the process Charlie. HOPEFULLY. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

    yea I saw that haha, I would bet that the sales of tickets will go pretty well for verified people, then they'll probably have a bunch of leftovers, and then will reopen verification, or drop it altogether for the remaining tickets.

    What are people doing for this- wondering if I really want all 4 days.

    Also, are the prices lower? Haven't been in a while, but I remember them being a bit more expensive.

    I'm hoping for Saturday. if I lived closer I'd do atleast 2 days, but I've always had enough after one day. prices are the same as past years I believe

    I really wish conventions would post their exhibitor list as it becomes available. I understand why they don't but it still bugs me...NYCC actually waited until a few days before the event to release the floor map last year. You have to just hope your favorite vendors will be there when you buy tickets. All they give you is a tease via email with a few moderately popular actors and a handful of artists.

    Yeah, I agree with @evom. I went for only Thursday last year and that was more than enough for me. I don't go to any sessions, signings, or screenings, etc. so I can hit every booth on my list and walk the whole floor in a single day without any issue.

    Tickets up in 10.

    I forgot to verify my lady, feel stupid. I don't know why they couldn't have left verification open until the tickets went up.

    even though the wait sucked, things went way smoother this year.
