    Post SDCC Blues

    Anyone else get these now that the SDCC is over?

    Its like Christmas. We wait all year for this event and it's over so quickly. But unlike Christmas, we don't know if we'll get the 2014 sub, and if we do, if we'll get 2015. Will we get another Mattypalooza, my favorite part of the SDCC?

    I'll only get the blues if 2014 doesn't go through as the news would be 1 day before my birthday. What a buzzkill.

    Loved SDCC, super excited about everything. Can't wait until next year!

    I understand perfectly the "blues" part. Now that the good news and reveals got us drooling all over the place, we know it's time for the coercive sub push, then maybe delays, cost-cutting measures etc.

    But let's be positive and say that all will be allright...

    I am still on a high from the awesome SDCC reveals; however, in a few more days I will probably get the blues also.
    In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
    Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
    Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
    In the bleak midwinter, long ago...
    ...a stable place sufficed.

    What can I give Him, poor as I am?
    If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
    If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
    Yet what can I give Him?....[I can] give my heart.

    I do get the post Con blues on occasion, but not this year thankfully. The end of SDCC '13 felt just about right to me and I definitely got to do everything I wanted the show this year so zero complaints. In fact if the show had extended a few more days I probably would have been uber broke- even more so! Anyway, I certainly get why some might not look forward to the end of another great show, but this year I was definitely ready to get home and back to the world.
    Harken the coming of Dragstor!!

    The real SDCC blues to me come from not being able to go.

    Just the opposite. I'm still on a high. Everything shown was really fantastic looking, the sub looks even better than before, I'm getting Horde Troopers and Sky Sleds, the castle was so cool to see in person, Huntara won...

    Yeah, the next 28 days are going to be excrutiating. I'm already concerned about the possibility of 2014 not going through. Just let it be August 20th already so we can know the fate, one way or the other, though hopefully it will be a surprise success like last year.

    Why worry?! Last year on the last day we saw a 55% increase!!! The resellers wait, it's that simple. I refuse to let the negativity bother me this year. Unless the resellers decided to quit the line we well be FINE.

    That is my opinion as well... The resellers have to make a $25 commitment PER subscription NOW that offers ZERO return until at least late January. That is a large capital investment for folks like BBTS and an even larger one for the average guy reselling on the side. It makes complete sense to wait until the last possible date to have those funds tied up.

    Even some of our fellow fans might be waiting until the last minute because they don't have that extra $25 or $50 today, but will be able to budget it in the next 30ish days.

    I'm always a little blue after returning form Comic Con. It was a great time, tiring, but lots of fun.

    Never really had the blues cause there's still stuff to be shown like Scorpia and Blade. To be honest it was the first year that I realized the end of the line is coming. It made me a little sad but also happy to finish a line (hopefully near complete).

    Not yet! We have so many toys we're actually getting in the next couple of months it's hard to feel blue. Plus, PowerCon and more reveals are coming up before too long!

    At least with so many figures being released so soon we don't have a huge wait to get our sticky hands on them, and then there is Power-Con!

    major blues here...

    my financial situation makes the 2014 sub uncertain at best. plus all the reveals reminds me of all the catching up i have to do, as that very same financial situation caused me to miss out on many figures from the main sub this year and every figure so far in the filmation sub, despite signing up for both.

    ...we're hoping all that turns around really soon.

    Well, I'm not saying there's any use in worrying. Just can't help it. So many comments here saying people are NOT going to sub, plus the overall traffic and # of posts during SDCC seemed way down this year, which indicates less overall interest. Just being realistic. But, I've done my part to keep the line going, so it's out of my hands at this point. It's not keeping me in bed-ridden or anything
