Ferengi Invasion

exploitThis is the add from Wizard World Raleigh showing that ONLY the highest paying guests, not the peons, will be allowed to see arguably the most popular Doctor of the NuWho era live on stage. While this is capitalism at it’s finest because they will get their money and the actor will make a mint, I’m just not in favor of this much over-the-top Ferengi-ism (to borrow from another franchise).

The VIP is $375.00.

David Tennant Autograph (8″ x 10″ Photo) — $100.00
David Tennant Autograph (Premium Item; Everything Else) — $150.00

By comparison: William Shatner: $80

Actress Gillan, originally from Inverness but now living in Los Angeles, is charging around £110 for a VIP package at Wizard World’s Fan Fest in Chicago this weekend. ($175 for VIP). Autograph is $60.

I am not happy that the Ferengi have invaded my universe and I have been to two Wizard World Cons in New Orleans.

I think I’ll pass.
