VIP tickets were not available when the tickets went on sale...it seems they were somehow grabbed up beforehand. Too bad, we were considering getting them.

Not true. Picture this.....there are only 200 vip badges available, and probably thousands of people online gunning for them. That means they will be snagged up literally in fractions of a second by the lucky 200 who clicked first.

It might seem to you that they weren't available, because you clicked as soon as they were up, but 200 allocations are gone in no time.

As you might have guessed, yes, i was one of the lucky ones. Bring on CEIII, YEAH!

I understand that many people did the same thing-but we were in the queue immediately-among the first people trying to get them...I have been to MANY conventions since the the early 80's but I was still very surprised to see these pricey tickets go so fast.

Congrats BTW for getting some!

When we purchased our tickets it stated that these were non-transferable or refundable and they would not send them to us, we have to pick them up at the convention with ID. I don't think people can sell tickets for this one.

They always say they are nontransferable yet you can get them officially transferred. At worst you can hand off in person at the event.

Thought about that, but a lot of people are traveling to Europe and they aren't going to go there just to hand someone their ticket after they pick it up. We only got 2 of the three day badges ourselves but when we bought them we considered what if at the last minute we couldn't go, we would just be out the cost of the tickets...but we haven't actually called to ask if we could officially transfer them to someone else s name. Figured rules are rules but for that much money they may actually bend if you called them and spoke to someone. Good call Ross_C.

I was able to snag 2 tickets the day after anaheim. I was boarding my flight home when tickets went on sale. thank god GOGO in-flight was working! 31 secs was the number i heard from the ticket folks I know how fast they were "queued" up for the buying process once live. It took my 6min to buy mine as my wells fargo card would not allow me to purchase in euros and had to find my other CC in my carry on. i was freaking out.

anyway, you can transfer just by contacting the ticket company. I had to change my plans a month ago and was worried they 2 i had would be wasted. All you have to do is let them know the actual name of the person picking up tickets at Will Call and thats it. little too simple imo. i'll assume there will be some people changing their minds and marking up tickets just like they were for SWCA.

good luck to those looking. ill keep my ears peeled for folks bailing and point them to this forum.

After you find someone to purchase them.. You must email reedpop and let them know your situation and that you have the names of the person/persons you are transferring them to. They will make note of it and tell you to have them bring your original receipt to will call with their id's where they will be able to pick them up. Good luck👍

If any VIPs are interested in selling their badge and a large shirt (pretty sure it will be the Luke art same as the badge) after the show then please PM me.

Now that the event is over, does anyone have a VIP or other badge/pass they don't want anymore? I've got a Friday and Saturday already and might consider picking up some others if they're reasonable prices! PM me and hopefully we can work something out!
