    im sure someone has the map in its entirety. judging from what i've seen glimpses of.. splurrt, death cat toys, comet debris, sunguts, griz, black drove, rampagetoys/grumble toy, super7, ko-re ko-re, punk drunkers/ skulltoys, and the MVH Traveling Vault.

    How would people say the line-up is compared to last year? I was kind of hoping for more Japanese artists

    Did Mori say after last year's DCon that he would be taking a break from US shows for 2019? . . . maybe others are following his lead.

    Possibly China is becoming a more lucrative alternative or even contributing enough not to have to bother?

    No, Mori said hes done with DCon, and will do a popup.

    And this year we lost Instinctoy, Milkboy, and Synapse. But Synapse brought 0 toys and Milkboy only 1 run, so not huge losses relatively. I hoped it would grow if anything.

    I was holding hope for Ishi and Mori in particular. Didn't know Synapse didn't even have any toys last year. Was he even selling anything?

    Did Mori ever say why he wasn't going back to DCON?

    Ishi was supposed to sell a run of karma dokuro, but they were allegedly seized by customs.

    I believe Mori said he didn't want to go to dcon because of flippers and similar BS.

    this seems like a very valid point. like, im sure they care about american collectors but maybe its just cheaper and less stressful to do more in china/thailand and still make their money

    Size is right. The purple are 10’x10’ and the blue are 8’x8’. The yellow is artist ally and are 6’ tables. And so on.

    I don't see Hakaba Gallery on that list. So no Japanese retailers or sofubi makers?

    Well Sunguts will be there it looks like. His Japanese mini sofubi toys are pretty damn awesome and Cometdebris as mentioned before. So its not completely devoid of anything.

    I’m definitely getting anxious. This’ll be my first convention not workin’ the Lulu booth, and on the East Coast. I loved New York the couple times I’ve been, so I’m very, very excited to see everyone I can!

    Super envious of you guys going to 5points. I went last year and had a great time (dunno if I spoke to any of you - I would have been the excitable Scotsman) hopefully I can swing it and make it next year.

    Have a good time and I look forward to the pics!!
