i never got a Con no Baka ticket because i was planning to go on the Sunday and i was told that it ended around 6pm on Saturday night when my friend and i arrived. Though i have to say that what DTAC is doing by accepting Con no Baka badges is very nice. i wouldn't have even expected it. even though i don't have a ticket, i gotta say thanks anyway ^___^ That's so nice!!!♥♥♥

I don't know if you know or not Dawn, but does this apply to ALL passes? Meaning including artist alley and dealer passes?

I'm not so sure about panelist/dealer badges myself. But likely. Either way if Dawn doesn't post back I'd bring it and $10 anyway just incase.

Thats a pretty spiffy deal.

Not trying to be greedy or anything, but what about "Con No Baka Bucks"? I mean... I've got fake money and no way to spend it! lol.

Major points to Hobby Star for doing this... I wasn't really planning on going before, but now I'm heavily reconsidering it.

I might even break out the Hohenheim costume again just for kicks ^_^

Wow, that is an amazing move by Hobbystar. I'm really glad that somebody made that decision. Hobbystar has definitely risen a helluva lot in my eyes as a result.

I raise a toast to you.

I agree. Very smart move to score points with the fanbase. I can't go to DTAC since I'll be working, but I hope those that do have a great time! :dance:

I agree, HobbyStar is really scoring points with con-goers (and lets face it...they kind of need it). It makes them look like they really do care more about the fans then their bottom line.

:jjacks: To answer questions posed previously, Hobbystar will be accepting ALL Con No Baka passes for the December Anime Event (http://www.hobbystar.com/hobbystar/ConventionsPoster_051204.html).
