    Five Points Festival - June 2019

    I've been meaning to post something about this for seriously two full weeks, but those weeks have been crazy. This year's Five Points was pretty amazing. I didn't have an endless budget, so there was plenty of stuff I wasn't able to get. But I am super happy with the amazing amount of toys I was able to get. I gotta say I think this year was even better than last year. Honestly, I think this year it would have been cool enough to go both days. Really pumped to have had as many good times as I did, with so many of my favorite friends and favorite artists. Way, way, way too many to name (however shoutouts to Amy and David from Lulubell Toys, y'all are a got dam treat!).

    As amazing as everything was I will also leave a list of complaints:
    -it was too hot, and also I got sunburned
    -I kinda wish drinks were more readily available (not just booze, but also water)
    -craft beer taste like trash juice (c'mon Brooklyn hipsters don't y'all have any Natty Boh or PBR for chrissakes?)
    -I missed the MVH release because I was eating a waffle (it was a delicious waffle tho)
    -Joe (Splurrt) had a whole grip of amazing stuff I missed (my fault, I can drive 3 and a half hours for a toy show, but I can't also be early!)

    I believe that concludes my list of complaints. Can't wait for next year!

    Great rundown and great gets. Waffles were great, no water was rough, and I also missed some stuff from being distracted.

    history lesson for the day :D (someone correct me if I'm wrong)
    bullmark did a number of releases with metallic blue on red vinyl: zanika, varan, garuban, gudon, takkong, shugaron... probably others, but that's all I can think of off the top of my head, but I'm pretty sure the first release in that style was minya (which was also produced by shimada toys, who for a short time helped fill the sofubi gap between marusan closing, and bullmark starting to release figures):

    In this interview with Saboru Ishizuki, he actually mentions how Minya's colors were inspired by Spiderman! :D

    Did not expect to see that email so soon. At the early bird prices, I figured I'd just get the two-day ticket for the sake of flexibility.

    So who all is going this year? Whose toys are you hunting for?

    I haven't been to Five Points Fest yet and DCON last year was my first ever toy show experience (besides the one I host, haha). Excited to re-create the magic, hopefully sans 24 hour long lines and getting line cut by Chinese flippers

    I'm going of course.

    MVH, Splurrt, and Skulltoys are highlights for me. And MVH.

    I'm going to get Mr. Mishka to sell me that greasy Gorosaurus, because I know he still has it.

    I hope Hakaba Gallery has some good stuff.

    Considering this is only the third year of FP’s, and you weren’t here last year, you haven’t been doing anything for years.
