Is anybody going that would want to snag me one of the Superman Blue pops? More than happy to work out shipping and something for your time. 

Funko offerings are lottery-only, if they have anything left at the end of each show day they open it up to the public. Chances are any "exclusives" will all get sold to those who win a lottery ticket allowing them to purchase one of each Funko offered.

Less than a week to go. I’m assuming this will be sparsely attended. Hopefully there will be some good deals. 

For those coming into town, while the weather lately has been unseasonably warmer than usual, the temps are expected come show time to be in the low to mid 40's. as a high. No snow to worry about, possibly rain though. While the show won't be as attended as if it was held in March (during a non-pandemic time), I think the show will see a good amount of fans attending, I have seen the show floor and it's just as large as it has been in the past with regards to exhibitor space. Exhibitor set-up started today I will be there Tuesday-Wednesday before the official start date his Thursday. Enjoy the show everyone!

Looking forward to the show, I've got a 4-day pass and the time off despite the reschedule.  (They announced the new dates very shortly after my vacation bid for 2021.)  But I may not attend all four days; depending on my budget and how busy it is and how I feel about the larger crowds after the first couple days.

My buddy is driving down from BC, Canada for 2 night ECCC stay. He says he will not need a PCR test to re-enter Canada, as he will be across the USA border for less than 72 hours.

It's amazing the number of totally random, not-based-on-science, Covid regulations you read about.

Yes, per Canada's Dr. T. Tam, starting today, Canucks can drive or fly to USA and:

Effective November 30, 2021, fully vaccinated individuals with right of entry to Canada who depart and re-enter the country within 72 hours of leaving Canada will not have to present a pre-entry molecular test.

It doesn't look like CGC has a presence this year at ECCC, I saw CBCS will be there. Also, no Image Comics or Dark Horse Comics, or Boom Studios either. However, the expedition hall will be the same size as it was during pre-Pandemic years. For those coming for Funko, their booth is now right inside the main entrance, instead of their usually spot in the main exhibition hall. Have fun those who are coming to the show here, except possible rain (shocking) and temps in the upper 40's. If you don't make it this year, there is always next year....

Will the show accept our BC vaccination passport as proof of immunization?

Probably. Warning that at the last big Langley Event Ctr. collectibles 2.5 day con, they would only scan one's digital (not paper) BC Covid QR code as proof of immunization. Reminder that one needs the federal (not provincial/territorial) Covid vax QR code to cross the USA border. In BC, this fed code is simply applied for online from the same BC vax QR :Rocket: website.

i gotta say the lack of same day testing options anywhere in seattle is incredibly frustrating. i have a ticket for my 7 year old, but am unable to book a test for him on thursday anywhere that we would have a result by friday morning when i plan to attend the show. all online pharmacy appointments are not available until friday at the soonest, and some private non-pharmacy places can do it thursday but not send results until up to midnight the follwing day. same goes for here in portland. guess he ain't coming with me. sucks.

Update: my BC buddy just bought gas across on the USA side of border. USA Border Patrol just checked his passport and asked, "Why u want to go to USA?" Just say to buy gas or go to casino. Did not check his federal vax QR code at all, as I doubt they have the equipment yet to scan for a legit Canadian Covid QR code.

SeaTac Airport has an on-site walk-up testing location in the baggage claim area.  The problem is the fastest test runs $250 and there’s a line at times

I thought ECCC set up a location in a neighboring hotel for Covid testing but don't know how fast the turnaround time is for the result?

Biden seems to be setting new Omicron Covid rules today for collectors/travellers entering USA border even if we plan to return to Canada within 72 hours.

where did you get that? their website says nothing of the kind. everywhere i called or saw websites here in seattle had too slow a turnaround for us.

great show, lots of marvelous dealers here! here are a few pics. not crowded today either as it’s a weekday and the strict vax/testing rules too. some dealers are not thrilled about the tight testing rules for kids. but all in the name of safety i suppose…
