    Anybody got any close up pics from the "History of MVH" cabinet with original sculpts, etc?

    Show looked amazing. Wish I could've made it up there.
    Are those sludgies hanging vertically on the left side?
    I cant seem to find a good shot of that area.

    Show was awesome. Didn't think there'd be much left for round 2, but seeing that people got Ollies and Sams second round makes me wish I'd stayed. What was the surprise for the last pick?

    Rich changed the game with this show! Superb turnout, food, drinks, and great people. Plus the fact that everybody in attendance got a chance to buy something... just incredible. Not to mention a handful of MVH tattoos. Everything was displayed and planned immaculately. Thanks for an unbelievable time, and for finally putting CT on the map for vinyl toy events!!

    That's the best way to go about it. I got a picture but there's tons of glare.

    What an awesome looking show. Planning to attend next year.

    Another thing worth mentioning is the show lineup for 2017. Pretty great if you ask me. Excited to see Rich open things up to artists he likes in the field.

    Picture of the bumblebee six eyed ghoul DX!

    So so so grateful I was able to pick it up, it was my number one at the show for sure! The black dripping from various areas and the copper and silver sprays are nuts! Such a good time, met a lot of you guys in person and that was great! Thank you Rich! Still can't get over how much of a good time it all was

    Was hoping to see you there...
    Those were indeed Sludgies hanging on the wall in the corner. A handful of this version from last summer.

    Show was a blast. Great to see many familiar faces and match some new ones to screen names.
    Much thanks to Rich and everyone who helped make the event such a success.

    @smurph thanks. that's cool.
    Yea I would have loved to go, but a 5hr. drive in one direction would've sucked for me, after driving a bunch for NYCC the day before.. Someone grabbed me one of the glitter bomb sludgies so I atleast managed alittle something.:)
    more bummed about not being able to see everyone than anything though..

    Rich really did a great job setting up his studio and gallery space, also creating an amazing array of MVH offerings, annnd just generally putting together a great event. I'm glad he has that big area in the hallway because without that space it wouldn't have worked! HUGE turnout. I counted at least 70 people during the first round of raffle, but there was likely more people. The first things to go were the painted Berserkers, Leviathans, and DXs (the flying freak DX was my favorite of the show). A lot of people left after the first round, so the second round was a bit smaller but there was still a lot of great toys left. Surprisingly, there was still painted Zugs, Sludge Fighters, and DC 13s left at the start of the second round. People started really clearing out during the second round. The last things to go were the Bernies and Sludgies. Also surprisingly, the second round was completed fully. So anyone that wanted two pieces and stuck around was able to score, which was awesome. I actually think you were allowed two picks the second round but I'm not sure. There were about 7 bernies/sludgies leftoever after the second round, not sure what happened with those exactly, but the show essentially sold out. I myself scored a Red Berserker and mixed Sam, my two favorite MVH toys! Also my first MVH additions to my collection. It was so awesome seeing that much of Rich's work in one place. It was even more awesome meeting so many collectors that I've only known from IG or SB. I'll definitely return to Death's Vault again soon.

    EDIT: I said painted Ollies but meant Leviathans.

    @evom Glad you were able to score a lil' piece of the show. Was a solid turnout, sure you would've had fun... but hey, plenty more events on the horizon for 2017. Will def be back in September (if not before)!

    So Ill with pneumonia this weekend had to take off work and still missed this show. I met Rich over 10 years ago at some plastic party downtown, super cool dude and so happy to see he's made this kind of statement and had success in the toy world. CONGRATS and will be at another show in 2017.
    Would of definitely snagged some gear and an Ollie but I so Need a custom Usir DX one day!!!!

    This was actually my first real show to attend and I can't say enough good things about it. Everybody was real cool. I usually stay in the back, this might be my first real post on here actually, but we were able to make it last minute and the wife and I were super happy we made it. She knew how much it meant to me and she's super supportive. But I got to meet a few collectors and made some new friends. And got some great toys. Can't wait to make more shows and hang out some more in the future. Thanks to all.

    So glad to see this show went off without any real bullshit. Makes me super excited for next year's show. Gonna be there with bells on. It looks like @Rich really went out of his way to make sure people were happy. I've never even seen a Feral Boy out in the wild (*ba dum BSSSST*) and it looks like Berserker might be the most popular sculpt so he made sure he had a lot available. I'd say my favorites so far would be the Leviathan, then the Sludge Fighter. That Alien Hunter X is just so on point. As much as I love Rich's work, his colabs are perfect matches stylistically. Krawluss, Alien Hunter X, Sludge Fighter....hope to see more sculpt colabs in the future!

    ^ Yep, everything looked great, that video is just awesome, seeing all of the old and new sculpts, and the stuff on hand was unreal. Leviathan, then 6 eyed demon are were what caught my eye the most. Oh and that berserker of course. Goood lawdddd!!!!! Were the orange ollies blanks or Skullbrain versions? Definitely saving for next year. I went to a bachelor party at a resort instead and two of my friends had serious health issues, and I got word that my cousin died back home. What a blast. The REAL Death's vault. I'd much rather have been here!!!! :x
