    I am personally gunning for a few Bwana blanks, namely Randall and (please god) a pink peanut killer. It'll be the first Summer Slime I'll attend, haha.

    Super, super saddened by circumstances of a pandemic where Paul, Mel and Gunnzo are unable to host the taco/beer(water for me)/sofubi hangout of the year. The laid back, backyard hangs PK and co put on for us sofubebe’s is one of *the* getaway highlights of my year. I’ll be missin’ you all and your faces/voices of excitement over the offerings presented to us by way of awesome vinyl, great food, and the best company.

    That being said, huge congratulations to Paul for the still continued debut of Draco and Asbestora! The Draco Jackelope looks incredible. All three do, but that Jackelope looks like fire illuminating the inside of volcanic caverns. I unfortunately won’t be able to pick anything, but I’m always rootin’ for SB’ers!

    these same sprays on milky white or gid vinyl is my favorite of PK's bag of tricks. BUT this new vinyl combination makes it look like internal pink sprays almost imo

    It may be sad that we can't all eat tacos together, but on the brighter side, it does give those who can't travel, a chance at some really nice toys! :razz:

    The light seasoning of blue flakes in the “spicy cod” vinyl make it look out of this world. And the metallic green and gold, the purple eye of Asbestora, I can’t stop oogling...

    This year would’ve been my first trip to Summer Slime, and at first I was bummed, but NOW I’m just thankful it’s able to happen in ANY dimension. 8)

    Ugh! Hubbie my cat had a small emergency, so no Peanuts for us! Man those bears are delish! Congrats to all those who nabbed goodies! :razz: There were so many marvelous candies listed. Completely bowled over by Bwana's colors! :shock: Hoping that misters Brandon, Jon, and Paul will begin a new tradition of making some of Summer Slime picnicable by out-of-towners, even when live taco and beer guzzling continues! :D

    That was insane. I had some serious multitasking that I had to do including a work-related zoom call that started at 6:00. I didn't even see the Randalls come up before they were sold out. That said, I'm stoked on what I managed to get. Looking forward to getting my hands on a one off Randall in the not-too-distant future.

    Congrats to those that scored, that Red boss is quite the stunner

    Insane drops all around. I usually strike out hard on these, but got lucky with Bwana this time (and went a little crazy with second and third orders, as a result). A successful evening for the irresponsible doll collector :)

    I managed to score a one-off Randall and a couple peanuts. Very nerve wracking getting those orders in and paid. I don't think I could have done it without having all my information stored in my web browser. Excited to see what I get!

    Congrats to all of you who scored a one off Randall, the jealousy meter is at 11. Hopefully there will be many more to come.

    I have been unable to make the trek down for Summer Slime in previous years, so I appreciated the virtual hangout with @JMRampage live painting in his studio yesterday. It is always enjoyable and interesting to see live art being created, especially some soft vinyl monsters being painted up! As for the overall offerings, a wealth of sofubi gems everywhere you looked, and many of them gone before you could say "refresh browser". The competition was fierce, but I made a sacrifice to the Internet gods, cached my info in the browser, pre-logged into Paypal, and managed to score the Revenge-X one-off: :shock:



    So many cool toys, but all the Alien Hunters were just off the charts. From the vintage Garamon and Giant Goji tribute microruns, along with those beautiful high-contrast one-offs, Jon's paintwork is quite mesmerizing (flip through all these on the IG link below):



    Long live Summer Slime!

    I was worried I'd be asleep by the drop time but toy karma has blessed me lately and was able to grab a one-off Randall.

    Will be sure to share loads of pics of the lil fella and I hope to see much more of him in SB'ers hands in the future!

    I snagged some peanuts and a blank Randall and I couldn't be happier (tho the one off randalls and puppy killer def made me reconsider my strategy)

    Congrats to those who got what they wanted! I had two peanut killers in my cart and while I was checking out, everything was fine until I hit the button to submit the payment, then the system said that there weren't anymore peanuts left... Oh well, maybe next time. Those pink ones look fantastic!
