NYCC Attracts More People Than San Diego

Via Comicbookresources.com:

New York Comic Con is now the largest pop-culture convention in North America, with producer ReedPOP reporting it sold tickets for this weekend’s event to 151,000 unique individuals.

Comic-Con International has been forced to cap attendance at about 130,000 due to the capacity San Diego Convention Center, leading organizers to turn to nearby hotels and Petco Park for additional space. New York Comic Con last year strained the limits of the Javitz Center with 133,000 attendees. However, ReedPOP Global Senior Vice President Lance Fensterman told ICv2.com that by expanding Thursday to a full day this year, organizers were able to sell another day’s worth of tickets.

This year’s figure doesn’t include the inaugural New York Super Week, the weeklong series of 110 events held at 25 venues across New York City, Fensterman said.

NYCC 14: Cosplayers

We always like to post images of the great cosplayers we see at conventions and NYCC gave SDCC a run for its money this year as there was triple the amount of what was there last year. A big thanks to JC from Razor’s Edge Collectibles who was kind enough to shoot just some of the great cosplayers at NYCC the last 3 days. Enjoy almost 200 awesome images below (be sure to check out all 5 pages)

NYCC 14: Hasbro ‘Twas The Night Party Video and Ezra Saber Demo

It was a party, so the lighting, awesome DJ and party lights made it very hard to get a good video (as well as all the camera flashes from other media members) but we still wanted to share the experience of the best party at NYCC, The Hasbro ‘Twas the Night Before Party with our readers. See a quick demo of the REBELS EZRA BRIDGER LIGHTSABER BLASTER from Joe N. at Hasbro.  Joe was awesome to talk to all night and will be a welcome addition to the team!  Also a quick look  at the THE BLACK SERIES 6-Inch and 3.75 inch Action Figures,  REBELS Action Figures and more.  Please note the video is just for fun, to see the all the great figures and items, see our gallery here.
