    I thought Mark meant the pugs!

    Yes, they were in the car, what choice did I have?

    Also made a startling discovery; I seem to have lost at least a couple of boxes during the big house move and extended storage saga. All my 12" suits not on figures, all but one DBM brains and who knows what else is nowhere to be found :( i assume, i hope, they are somewhere, but they aren't to hand. Ulp!

    I know you wouldn't do that to your actual babies. I don't think I could do it to the vinyl ones either :lol:

    Hope you find all your figures!!

    had a great time viewing carl's retrospective gallery. didn't end up with a goner dog i wanted, but it's ok.

    best thing at the show was the $30 bin of random mixed parts fight figures. some even had hand spraypainted heads?

    wasn't too many available, but i think carl and others might of been able to grab a few.

    Yeah it was. A healthy turn out, and all the OG SB heads turned up; HMS, Blashshyr, dukuroking, , secret space - folk who don't engage the boards as much but still love toys. Healthy showing from SDSK - sorry Michael ;) lots of of other locals made it too, and other folk drove from as far afield as Oklahoma! Plenty of folk I'd never seen before at a toy show just keen to check out the spectacle and Hiroshis awesome art.

    Got a ton of pics which I'll upload later today. It was a busy two days setting up just the collection stuff, and I took two days off work to do it. It was a trade off, 3 days off work for sdcc or 1 day for sdcc and 2 days for this. I went for the former. I love SB and I applaud the TAG guys for setting this up, so I wanted to do my best for both of them. While we can all shop by Internet, and in many cases that is the only option, for those of us lucky enough to have a local store (Louisville, Chicago, sf, ny etc...) it's great to support where you can. Nothing beats meeting folk in person and hanging out talking toys. It's the great equalizer.

    Last night I met some very passionate folks who aren't on the board, but love these toys, and have deep collections focussing on the henshin cyborg descendants. I met one guy from Scotland, who like me, discovered these guys through buying MUTON and Cyborg when he was a kid. These folk aren't interested in the hot new toy - jjust digging the form for what it is. And seeing Adam and Deb's suited up pics above gets me super stoked. I was so tempted to pick up those suits, as they were subtle variants - but already having them in one form or another - I hoped someone hardcore or a new discoverer would garb em, and that exactly what happened.

    The sheer breadth of toy brought for the show was stunning. Hiroshis new toy looks like an acquired taste, and I want sure until I saw it in person. It's so Japnese and traditional. Later I spke to a couple of folk who are Yokai aficionados, and they we blown away by it and the 3 foot version...which everyone I talked to agreed was stunning. Fabricated in fibre glass, but painted to look like porcelain; it's not a toy, so the toy folk weren't looking to close I think, but other folk were stoked on it.

    Add to that a great showing by SB pals Cure, a bunch of incredible Ganji dogs...usugrow skulls, prints by Hiroshi, a surprise showing of one off fight figs, hand pinstriped bottles, one off Miss Mysterious - just an incredible selection...and very much a surprise.

    I know of a few folk planning on making a trip out as part of their Sdcc plans, and I think you'll find it worth the trip.

    Sorry for the long piece, just wanted to convey what was there, which I don't think has come across yet. Pics hen I get a chance. I have to catch up with 2 days of missed work today ... Sigh...but worth it :)
