I'm just getting a chance to read some of the comments here and the show was absolutely amazing.... I would sy the best that I've ever attended. I have read a lot of negative comments as well and I'm pretty sure no one traveled further to be at is event than me. Did we have a lot of items to get done... Absolutely. I don't feel bad about that for a second, when I attend a show I do what everyone else does... I wait in line to get my stuff done whether it's two items or 80. I'm a hardcore collector and there's no way I'm going to miss someone or not get all my pieces done because people are behind me. I make no apologies for any of it. I wont allow the negative stuff to ruin my great memories of that day. And I've asked Jason before how to handle the large quantities and he just says have at it and that's what we do. I would highly recommend to not get behind me at any future shows. Btw I like to chat and meet new people as I've met a lot of great people at Jason's shows but I am there on a mission and I'm sure everyone else would be as well if they had just traveled 5000+ miles one way to be there.


It's not hardcore collectors that we're referring to, it's people that have multiples of the same item, or (and I'm not saying this was you, Starwarsgrapher) people who cut in line with an item that they'd conveniently "forgotten about". It happens a lot at cons, and yes it is rude and annoying!


i understand the cutting part, that would bother me too, but you are a show where you are paying for someone's signature. it is no one business how many you have, how many of a particular shot or how many items you have. if you are paying, you get them signed. it's that simple. that's what the celebrity is there for. they are there to sign autographs. i have been going to shows of all sorts since 1981, and that's the way it's always been. if i attend a show here in the states or in england the guest is there being paid to sign. i am the attendee and there should be no qualms in paying that person to sign. i have had to wait behind many people in my life who have gotten 1, 2, 3 or 50 things signed. i just waited my turn. it happens. at this show, i stood behind another collector who asked question after question after question to a few of the camera crew guys. each time, i waited my turn. i was fine with it. it happens. i realize there are 1 and done people that attend the shows, i'm just not that guy nor are my friends. i was there to accomplish getting my items signed by these guys and i'll always do that at every show i attend.

Looked like a great day and one I would have definately gone to - had I not moved to the bottom of the world a few years back!
Would love to see some photos of the event, and also I can't see anywhere the names of the "secret" guests who were scheduled to appear.
