The fall season is upon us, which means it’s almost time for the biggest pop culture con on the East Coast! Here’s what Loot Crate is up to at New York Comic-Con 2017!
We’re incredibly excited to return to New York City for NYCC this year, and you can find us in Javits Center once more with more cool exclusives and events! Loot Crate will be celebrating our favorite films, shows, geek culture and more right alongside you, and if you can’t join us on the show floor we’ll be sharing daily updates on social media, too!…
This year you can find us on the Javits Center Exhibit Hall floor in the very same spot where we were last year, at Booth #536! (Click here to see the full map of exhibitors, courtesy of NYCC’S website).
