Figures, figures and figures! If you want some of the LE goods, chances are you'll have to line up even earlier. In any case, the plan is to meet at 8AM so that some of the LE goods might still be around by the time we get in. The event lasts 7 hours, but if you stop to eat lunch, you can bet you will run out of time, I do every year. There are a lot of figures and dolls to take pictures of, commercial booths with advanced previews of many commercial figures, dolls, stage shows and cosplay. I tend to move very fast, so we may not stick together as a group the whole time, but don't worry...there is so much to see! Rally point will be outside the exhibition area around 5PM, since there are so many good places to eat nearby (unlike Tokyo Big Sight). Lunch is probably in the venue or right outside.
