ToyFarce News: New York Comic Con - How The First Few Hours Are Crucial For Collectors!


Recommended Posts

NYCCTime.jpgThe first day of New York Comic Con is in the books, and toy collectors worldwide (who couldn't attend) have been glued to their phones/computer screens, refreshing every toy news websites and social media to catch a glimpse at their favorite brands' booths first. Indeed, it is very important to see the new reveals early, so that you know what to complain about for the rest of the weekend!

If you have seen someone that was refreshing the same page over and over again during the New York Comic Con opening hours yesterday, chances are they were looking for the latest updates and pictures from 'the floor' of the Jakob J. Javits convention center. We sat down with Joey, a toy collector, to talk about how that first day went: 

"The first thing I do when I wake up in the morning when a big comic con is ongoing, is to pretend that I'm not interested, and not look at my phone right away. I first have breakfast, take my time to get ready, and only then, I start to hit all the social media pages. That's how you get the juiciest infos!", he said. "You first have to get through a lot of blurry pictures (or pictures taken with a ham sandwich), or weird angles where you have no idea what you're looking at, before getting to the good stuff. Once you've seen most of it on Day 1, you can then have stress-free remaining comic con days."

"The best part is when the panels start, and people take photos of a projected picture on a white screen. Those pictures are never really clear, the colors are faded,... but you gotta get those pictures out on social media first, right? Those are my favorite. The thrill of deciphering what exactly was announced, what they could have said during the panel, why it shows something we already knew about and all that, instead of just waiting one or two hours before seeing clear official pictures everywhere, what a rush!"

We asked Joey if he ever attended one of those conventions, and he said that yes, but he spent most of the time refreshing the news on his phone in order to see the latest pics of toys and reveals...that were right next to him.

More news at 11:00... Who's excited for Day 2?
