make a GOOD lasting impression.
No TV playing a trailer, no actors, no characters, no line/audience involvement noting. The truck its self was kinda cool, but no Annabelle doll just an illusion of her. Because of the disappointment of most of the audience, you may get people not wanting to see the movie or boycott it. People time is valuable, and stealing it from them is wrong, and being dishonest and misleading is wrong and hurtful. I hope you all can learn from this and grow. Thanks to me and my silliness and being my own entertainer I was able to have fun, but my friend and hearing others around me they were not having fun and getting upset. Annabelle being as big as she is, and getting the long lines means something, and you all
messed it up, and even hurt people. Not cool!

the 'Annabelle Comes Home' event in Phoenix

Guests showed up to the "Annabelle Comes Home" truck tour expecting to see the horror-movie doll in real life.
Well, they didn't. Instead, a projection of the doll was featured, which left some people feeling, well, horribly disappointed.
Warner Brothers listened. Now, there will be two chances to see a replica of the creepy "Conjuring" franchise's iconic doll.
"We are going to offer a solution for people who want to see the doll," says senior account executive Patrick Brogan of Allied Global Marketing.
Brogan says guests can get another chance to see Annabelle at the horror-themed convention Mad Monster Party from Friday, June 28 to Sunday, June 30. Guests will have to pay $30-$70 for weekend convention admission to see the doll at We-Ko-Pa Resort.

Fans can also see Annabelle for free late at night at Harkins Tempe Marketplace. From Saturday, June 29, from 8 p.m. to close and Sunday, June 30, from 6 p.m. to close, guests can take selfies with the doll as she sits behind a protective glass case guarded by security.
"People are welcome to come to Harkins Tempe Marketplace to see the doll, take photos," Brogan says. "They just can't touch the doll."
To be transparent, The Arizona Republic reported information from a press release that the event would be at Cityscape, and the doll would be at the event to celebrate the premiere of "Annabelle Comes Home," in theaters June 26.

Even though it was confirmed before publishing the original story that the real prop would be there, only a projection of the creepy artifact made a ghoulish appearance.
In the truck, azcentral.com reporter Kerry Lengel says that there were "various old and spooky-looking objects line the shelves, and some of them come to life as you walk past. Several artifacts, including an old wedding dress and a suit of samurai armor, figure prominently in the new film."
Aren Dullas from Tempe says it took five hours for her and her friends to get into the truck.
"I know people were kind of mad because they thought something was supposed to happen when they saw Annabelle," she says. "So it was like, 'What the heck did we actually wait for?' Personally, I wouldn't have waited in line. I'm not mad because I know news articles can be falsely reported."
"Annabelle Comes Home" follows the story of a babysitter who unknowingly finds herself in a night of terror as Annabelle and other demonic artifacts target Ed and Lorraine Warren's daughter.
