After a year absence New York Comic Con once again returned to the Javits Center. I scoped out the show Thursday to once again find as much Muppet stuff scattered throughout the Con as could.
There where MUCH less attendees the day I was there then in the past which made the whole experience easier to get around and much more pleasant.
Let's start in Artists Ally:
But there was a fair amount of officially licensed merchandise as well including Diamond Select Toys, who had the new "Best of" The Muppets action figure line for sale:
The Sesame Street Funko Pop! pins:
There was also a few booth of Henson clothing, one had a ton of socks and shirts, both official and unofficial:
Stylin' Online had these official Kermit and Elmo hats:
Muppets shirts featuring Pigs in Space and Statler and Waldorf:
There weren't a whole lot of booths featuring vintage items this year but I did spot these Sesame Street animation cells. Not sure what they were from, but cool to see.
There was one booth however that had PLENTY of vintage Henson items run by my friend Mark who had these classic Big bird items including a Big Bird Beater signed by Carroll Spinney:
We also ran into fellow Muppet fan Matthew Soberman:
