[Fan Expo-total bullshit]
Fan Expo is Canada's largest comic convention. Hosted by the end of summer, fan expo is not the summer finale we been looking for, but rather the WORST CON I been to. The following are the sins of this convention. First thing first, the con LACK ANY ATTRACTION. In contrast to other conventions, major announcements are being announced in the convention, fans hype sky rocked. however there is nothing to this con rather than various merchandise stores which is just a ridiculous spending spreed. Secondly, the con is GUILTY OF MARKED UP PRICES. A dva funko pop was being sold in the high price of 60 dollars. Not to support gamestop but EB games (owned by gamestop) sold the same product for 35 dollars or less. It's ridiculous how the price marked even for collectors items. Damian' s death issue (Batman inc #8) was priced at 50 dollars which is ridiculous. Thirdly, the convention is has no guest. Hardly any of their gimmicks showed up. more than 3/4 of guest's seats are empty. Autograph signature last year with Mark Hamill went up to 300 dollars(sign and leave). there is not much of fan interactions. This is just pure awful. Forth, the con is nothing but reselling repetitive products and fan arts. Not much to buy when everything is the same. Not much to see when everything is the same. Finally, the con is guilty for high ticket price. I paid 30 dollars for the con entry however the following days of the con costs up to 70+ CAD just to enter the convention. It is ridiculous when you have to pay for theme park prices just for a trade show. As you guys can see from my stories, not much traffic in fan expo. It flopped hard and it flopped bad. I would recommend everyone NOT TO GO TO 2017 fan expo. It's a let down, a disgrace and a flop.
