    I thought the VIP pass was worthwhile, but I was seriously disappointed by the "VIP Lounge." I've been to other cons with a VIP Lounge and some had snacks or at least a bag/coat check, both of which would have been nice at RICC. As I mentioned before, I was also disappointed that after getting in through the VIP entrance, I still had to suffer the push of bodies going where I didn't want to go. They should have had a VIP entrance at the convention center too.

    Thank you for letting me know that you got it!
    I don't know anything about Mr. Monaghan (beyond what they told me), but I was surprised to hear it... I'm sure he'd do very well at a convention, having been in 'LOTR', one of the 'X-Men' films, & 'Lost'

    I wasn't VIP, but I didn't hear from anyone that there even was a 'VIP Lounge'...
    I completely agree about the second entrance into the Convention Center, though!

    It was a room with four or five small round tables, each with four or five chairs. I went there first thing Friday to drop off our coats, only to realize there was no coat/bag check, or anything else. I went back once on Saturday to eat the overpriced turkey wrap I had bought to avoid leaving the convention center, and every seat was taken, so I ended up sitting on the floor in the hall with maybe 30-40 other people. Really poorly done.

    You guys are really helping me to realize I made the right call retiring from the convention scene.
    No matter where you go...there you are!
    There can be only One!

    oh man you ain't kidding, I barely go for my own acquisitions let alone pick ups... thankfully there are some fellow collectors that help w/ the sickness LOL. It's gonna take a signer (s) like one's never seen to get me back in RICC. I didn't even attempt the Serkis day, wish I had him on a Snoke,(hint hint) but someday.....
