They will have toys... Shhhhh
If you're brave enough to zoom in and try and tell what the hell is going on here
psssst... your link didn't work...
ok, my dudes... Who's going this year?
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.
Loose lips sink ships!
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.
ill be sure to harass the shit out of em and take lots of vids.
Please do not harass the asian in the skeletor+ghostbusters shirt.
that guy is a Korean asian stuck between the asian flippers. I know because he is me.
no I will give you comics, and we can drink beers. Are there beers at dcon?
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 ?
The badges are so cheap so why not invite your whole family and even extended family too!
@debparis MMMM.... Harassment.
just be like, REAL LOUD.
When I was in japan, They couldn't get away fast enough.
Real head booth was terrible last year!! I was like what the hell line is this and looked and just noped out.
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.
That's cute, you already have your outfit picked out.
I wore this shirt to dcon last year and some of the artists liked it. so I decided to wear it again this year hoping they will recognize me as a returning fan. honestly when I look on instagram all asian sofubi collecting dudes look the same.... asian dude, short black hair with glasses... just like me LOL
We should all wear hammer pants. We can start a gang and control the streets.
Right? I barely know what I'm eating for lunch!
I might try to head out this year but it all depends.
Lemme kno, we can drink beers
I don't drink and i don't smoke.
