I probably won't be going this year (so I can go to WonderFest NEXT year).
Well, in reading Dave's note it isn't really clear WHO is selling the onezies at the Century Center later in the day. I would hope (although this doesn't really make sense to me) that PL is taking stock from the warehouse to the Century Center to sell directly to attendees. To me that seems like a lot of work moving stuff from one location to another, but I guess there've been more and more people lining up over the years that eventually the lineup is going to spill out into Grape Rd! If you think about it, how would buyers be able to get merchandise at the case sale and then immediately run it over to the Century Center for the event? At least I hope (for the sake of those that DO go) this is the way Playing Mantis is planning it.
If Playing Mantis is going to sell the discounted goods to a bunch of retailers who will turn it around and RESELL it to us, making a profit in the process it'll ruin the fun of the whole event. (I'm glad that I, too, was able to get to Mishiwaka a couple of years for the 5AM lineup into the little warehouse on Grape Rd and fill my trunk to overflowing with styrene!)
