Like every single con is that weekend wtf. I guess this is on my map.

Looks like a $225 supeticket basically guaranteeing you a combo with each actor. And that's Saturday only.

Yeah that Saturday session is an hour and a half. It literally says you get only 20 seconds with the actor, limit of 1 item and you must supply your own item. Its not a bad deal for just the 3 real names there if you can accept those conditions.

What's the big hurry? Ha ha ha ha! They won't have 50 people for this thing, it's void of any of the main ones besides Gunton. No Robbins, no Freeman, no Brown or Bellows.

If they got Gill Bellows I’d be interested if I didn’t already have a con that weekend.

From the list I need those:

Frank Medrano ("Fat Ass")
Neil Giuntoli ("Jigger")
Alfonso Freeman (Morgan's son, "Fresh Fish Con")
Claire Slemmer ("Bank Teller")
Renee Blaine ("Linda Dufresnee")
Scott Mann ("Glenn Quentin, Golf Pro")

And half of those are barely valid (the last 3). So I think this fulls under "too much money for too little"
