Another interesting thing to note is that the show charges more for photo-ops than for autographs. For example, Jeremy Renner is $125 for photo op and $100 for autograph. I wonder why that is...

With that said, I'm attending the con on that Saturday for Jeremy Renner and Ray Park signatures. I haven't decided if I want to come back on Sunday yet for Karen Gillan. So if you guys want something signed from those 2 (maybe 3), I can certainly help out.
Definitely would need a Renner if you don't mind helping out.

Also, anyone else going for charisma carpenter.

The number of people you can probably do in an hour for photos is probably less than autos so, they charge more.

Sure, just PM me. I don't mind getting Charisma either, I just can't guarantee it. VIP passes are sold out (and expensive at $500!). I figure I will be stuck in the Renner line for a long time and hoping to have time left over for Ray Park.

Most dont, but some do. Typically it's just two options though.

Scenario 1: $X for an 8x10 photo and $Y for anything else
Scenario 2: $X for whatever is on the table or $Y if you brought your own item

Typically the difference is like $5 - $20

Last show I went to was $10-15 more for a "premium item", basically anything other than a photo. At a couple shows I went to, they were charging $5 for the photos on the table, something I wasn't prepared for in my budget.

I've wondered that as well. It must be something to do with paying the photographer, because the photo-op line moves 10x the speed of the autograph line does.

Usually the photo ops are all through a single supplier. They are much more limited than the autographs despite the line moving faster. The photo op sessions are much shorter.

Just noticed that AWESOME CON in DC is the same weekend as WIZARD WORLD PHILLY CON.........doesn't make much sense to have both shows relatively that close to each other on the same days.

I would have paid if they had an individual auto option. Thanks for checking though and offering the others! Post pics when you get back, thanks again.

Official pix.com sent out an email this morning stating that they would be offering a send in and pre order service soon for Silicon Valley Con. MJF is listed as one of the opportunities so it looks like there will be a way to acquire without a photo-op. Hope this helps.

I was so bummed when they announced Breckenridge would be Friday only. The one day I can't attend. I've already got her auto, but I would've paid for another for the chance to meet her and tell her how much I've enjoyed her arc on TWD.

Category Archive for "Celebrities" | 2016 Spring Super Megafest Comic-con

I want to go as their are a TON of people i'd like to meet.

Mainly James Marsters and the cast of The Warrors.
Any one have any idea how much these guys charge? I hate how they don't post prices at most of these in advance soyou can make sure you have the funds for this stuff.

I wish Yvonne Strahovski would start attending these things...Haven's seen her on any lists. Her and Zachary Levi would be awesome.

I agree about the Warriors cast. That's a sweet opportunity. I wouldn't think any of the Warriors would be that expensive honestly.

Marsters runs about $40 at a Wizard World Con so "should" be around there for that one. You never know though, could be cheaper.
