Stallone Superfans

We Dropped $445

To Pose With Our Hero

Would you pay $445 to take a photo with Sly Stallone? These people did.

Sly was one of the attractions at NYC Comic Con this weekend ... where the going rate for a snapshot with the Italian Stallion ran just south of $500. Autographs were $395.

But the price didn't scare off legions of Stallone-aholics, who willingly shelled out the cash for a moment with their hero.

Stallone wasn't the only celeb charging for pics ... a photo with Stan Lee ran $400 bucks ... and people dropped $200 for a shot with Sigourney Weaver.

The moral of the story -- nerds got bank, yo.

Maybe it's me, but this looks like a bad North Korean photoshop exhibition. Are you sure these aren't cardboard cut-outs?

You know the reason that celebs charge for Autographs at these conventions is to prevent random people that aren't really fans from making it impossible for real fans to meet them. If it was free then everyone and anyone, doesn't matter if they even like the celebrity would get in line just bc they are famous!

In my opinion it doesn't seem right. I'm surprised at Sigourney.

Who would want they're picture taken with a Viet Nam draft dodger who comes back home and then gets filthy rich portraying a Viet Nam Vet? He's a big piece of sh!t in my book.

The worst waste of money ever, besides wiping your butt with it. Actually wiping your butt with $445.00 is something beneficial.

This sounds like a joke. I simply don't believe that.
If it was true, stallone and the others will be booed in public for the rest of their lives. Far more famous celebrities wouldn't even dare ask money for autographs or photos.

Hahaha, this is seriously the corniest thing I have seen in a long time. And what's with the cheesy Sears style photo back drop? Hahaha

$500 and that's the result??? An awkward, halfass pose and a Sears-Portrait-Studio quality backdrop?

Be Informed    

The stan lee photo ops were only $60.... Who provided TMZ with the drastically inaccurate information??
The price was right on the NY Comic Con photgraphers' website - http://froggysphotos.com/conventions/newyorkcomiccon13.php
