Megacon 2005,Orlando Information
Being disapointed with Chris Darling's explination on
Megacon 2005, I would like to explain the event as well. I
attended Megacon on Saturday, seeing both Flaming Eternity
sneak peeks and a ton of the booths.
Before you entered, a few feet from the check-in area (Which
there was quite a LONG line to), you saw an enlarged Mystic
Swordsman lv. 6 (RDS edition), standing in front of quite a
few tables (I took a picture in front of the Swordsman, with
my card of him ).
On the other side of the check-in, there was the Anime
Costume contest. Some of the highlights were a band of
home-made Final Fantasy characters, and a character (from
Ruroni Kinshin?) with a 6-foot long sword. Wow. Probably the
most common costume was Rikku (Final Fantasy 10), of who I
counted over 20 girls dressed as her.
In the actual Megacon, the whole place was jammed with
people. The first thing I slowly (Got shot by a Scout
Trooper on the way, shaking his hand afterwards) crept to
was the Upper Deck booth. There was a help desk announcing
Upper Deck events, and on either side were tons of packs,
including all of the 2005 and select 2004 items of all UDE
cards. Behind the desk was a playing area, equiped with 5
tables. Aroud the small area (About 20 square feet?), there
were tons of rare singles hanging from a curtain holder, but
the singles were all enclosed in glass. Yugioh and other
card games hung, and all the Ultra, Secret, and Promos it
seemed were up there. My wish, Black Luster Soldier Envoy,
was at the very bottom. I want it so bad...
The Help Desk attendant at the booth told me the directions
to Unity Entertainment's area, who was holding all the Yu-Gi-Oh
events. I played in 2 Sealed open flights of Flaming
Eternity, being late for the swiss tournaments of
constructed and Flaming Eternity. Just about everyone would
play a duel or match with you if they had the time, and I
got a lot of trades.
About 10% of the booths sold Yu-Gi-Oh products. A lot of
free table top games were being played, and I joined into a
Starwars RPG. Numerous stores were buying Singles, and I got
my hands on a Jinzo, but didn't have enough for that Black
Luster Soldier. I sold my Mystic Swordsman lvl 6 to a booth
right next to the Gaming area, and earned myself $30 bucks.
Other events held were numerous signers of comic book
creators, voice actors, and many others. Every step you took
brought you to another booth you wanted to see, and the
whole event was extremely worth my money.
Seeya at Megacon 2006!
