    Hopefully not the same asian flipper syndicate that wiped out the Refreshment booth at CurioCon and MVH booth (and more) at Five Points.

    Yeah, Refreshment Toy is one of our main draws, so I hope they don't get wiped out either.

    I went to D-CON last year around 10am and tried standing in the long long long asian sofubi line. 99.99% was asian flippers buying one figure, and then getting in line again and buying another figure until nothing was left to buy. they were all looking at the same chinese website app that had a lot of chinese text with a photo of the punk drunkers and goccodo figures booth. I am not sure about refreshment toys.

    This pic is from Curio Con (not Dcon).
    Curio Con had ONE sofubi booth - Refreshment - and that asian flipper mob did exactly what you described above.

    Good luck to you @shincartoon. BTW that VIP "get in early" badge is no secret, Dcon has been promoting it on their social media and the flippers are aware.

    All we can do is harass them, right @3wing ?

    Was discussing the 5 Points incident with a couple newer collectors at the last DV show. One guy apparently saw members of that mob literally recruiting people off the street to hold spots in line and I don't doubt a word of his story.

    Considering the drastically cheaper entry price at Dcon, don't be surprised if there's similar shenanigans at play in Pasadena :?

    the VIP ticket is just an attempt to fleece the sofubi fans of some extra money. And sadly, we will all fall in line. There will be shitloads of flippers, but a motley crew of badass toy lovers too. Most of you, this is the only occasion I have to shake hands, nerd out together in person a couple minutes. and that is something no flipper crew can take away from me.

    Don't jinx it!

    But unrelated, can I borrow some money for a coke?

    I would agree, then pocket the toy.

    We should all wear hammer pants. We can start a gang and control the streets.
