Dealers Room

Does anyone have an idea what the price of a Anime DVD boxset in the dealers room?

White Cross Gluhen is only avalible on HK dvd or Fansub dvd.

Fruits basket doesn't have a box set but is approx$35-$45 per volume.

As for SailorMoon, If your talking live action it also is only availible on HK or Fansub, as for the Anime series.. the 1st and 2nd season have a box which is about $140-160CND (it has 8 disc).

No. Counterfeit/bootlegs were banned from AN. If you want that kind of thing, go to Pacific Mall.

Either go to Pacific Mall for that stuff or wait until CN Anime in August. I don't believe they have any sort of ban on bootlegs there, as I always seem to find bootleg soundtracks there for much cheeper than the legit cd's at Anime North.

If bootleg stuff is getting through they should have someone in charges of the dealers room who not only can contact the companies to come in but also knows the difference between legit and non legit.. or at least have someone in the exhibitions staff that does and can do a routine check during the con.

To be honest if someone wants to be cheap then thats fine cause they probably won't fork out the cash for legit.. but don't be ignorant, it kills me when they think that the 3 disc .hack dvd box set they got for $20 with chinese/english subs is some limited edition version..
*gah*
Got in an little debate with someone when they were bragging about it to 15th floor store last Anime north.. I politely pointed out that it wasn't the legit release and he proceeded to call me a liar... well I don't take kindly to being called a liar :P Not that I freaked out on him, but lets just say I was firm.

I remember a few boxsets of reasonable size being from 60-80 dollars.
The larger ones were more expensive then that..
The starter-set DVD's in a box with T-shirts were around 20-30.

CN is bootleg central.
I remember them seeing me in my Ryoma costume and trying to sell me bootleg PoT DVD's for 15$ each.
Just from looking at them it was easy to tell they were bootleg,and that the translation was probably horrible.

Plus, I have all the available seasons in boxset I got from Vancouver xD
Legit and not HORRIBLY expensive.
80$ a Season.. 5 DVD's a season.

Most conventions don't allow the selling of bootleg merchandise anymore. One thing about Sailor Moon though, if you're going to buy that, make sure you get it soon as Sailor Moon is no longer in production in North America anymore.

Like what Lafiel said, "Steeles and Kennedy." ^_^ But if you're taking the ttc, go to Finch Station and take the Steeles bus (I'm not sure if it's west or east, I can't remember) til it reaches Kennedy. I think you can get off at the Petro-Canada gas station and just walk across the street to get to Pacific's *small* parking lot. =P Aiya, I hate going to Pacific during the weekend, finding a parking spot is a pain in the ass.

*tip* Never make the left turn on Kennedy's traffic light, as it takes forever.... Not to mention, the people who parks their cars underground and the massive car lineup is annoying. ;_;
