    Anyone going to Wizard World Chicago in August? I'm going by train from Massachusetts with a few friends for 5 days and was wondering if anyone else will be there?

    O and anything I should plan for / expect since this is my second convention (first one was Wizard World Boston)

    thinking of going to a convention next year in dallas :hsd:

    if anyone who is going to WWC, could you keep an eye out for a Nemesis Prime Alternator. i really want one but i cant go to a convention to get it. and hasbro's site is always sold out of them because people buy them and scalp them on ebay :(

    yeah it ended sunday, the kevin smith Q&A was great, tons of action figures (i picked up a beared sentry figure) turner was there even though he shouldnt have been because of his condition and quesada's cup of joe was cool.

    I just talked to my friend who was there. He said the figures and comics were marked up a little bit, but he didn't notice anything special. Actually, the only thing he noticed was the lighter tone of yellow on all the Sentry figures there compared to the ones at the Wal-Mart in Alaska.
