    The show itself was awesome! A lot of great pieces up for grabs. The Moon Goon DXs were crazy! They stole the show in my opinion, but the Trolls were also hypnotizing. The painted glitter bats were a big focus as well. I was really only interested in the green glitter bat but I think all my luck ran out in 2015. Plenty of familiar faces and good conversations. I'll post some pictures in a few minutes.

    Also, a couple very cool pieces still available here.

    I posted most of these to Instagram last night but there's a few Skullbrain exclusive pics in this set ;)












    I somehow missed an entire shelf, I think the image got corrupted. It had the other 2 Trolls, the Miscreation custom Daigomi, and some other pieces. Maybe someone else got a full shot. Either way, it was an awesome show. Can't wait for next year!!

    Loved the show. So much to look at. A lot of people to catch up with. I got the cinema monster, very happy about that. We need more NY events.

    So for those of you in attendance, what is the likelihood of scoring a piece?

    The reason I ask is as I get into this hobby more, I'm considering flying into town for a show maybe once a year and seeing if it is worth doing. I'd love to go just to see the pieces, but I couldn't rationalize a trip JUST for a show.

    There is always something to score, depends on if you want what is there when your number is called.

    Last year I got called a little later into the lotto, and I passed on what was there. This year I got called first, so you never know.

    I'd save my money for DCON, unless you are also sightseeing in NY

    The photos don't do the show justice. It was great show. Wish I wasn't so shy and met more of you.

    Photos from shows always blow my mind because you really get a sense of scale and size of some of these pieces. The Iron Monster and Goboking are HUGE! :shock:

    That being said, I think the "dapper cadaver," the clear with neon pink mockbat, and bull-headed cinema monster have to be my favorites of the bunch. Cadaver for the humor, mockbat for the paint-app love, and cinema for great alternative head. :D

    What a great show!!
    I met a ton of folks from here and IG. It was good just talking with people, especially as the show wound down and got roomier.
    There were so many incredible pieces. All of the artists brought their A-game, as obviously expected. The Mockbats, Unchimen and Morning Men were beautiful with either the popping glitter vinyl style or the polka-dotted (right term?) blue and white vinyls. Guumon had a lot of great pieces too.

    Enough talk...here's my gallery of pics.

    And congrats on the amazing Mockbat win.

    Sweet, I'd kind of look like a photo negative of Don King.

    Does anyone have any details on a Monstrosities show for 2017?

    Brian/GUUMON posted a teaser pic on IG saying Feb 4.
    I guess run with that until there's an official announcement.

    Ask and ye shall receive I guess! Not a peep about this show until the day after I ask and now I see it being shared all over IG. This is as good as an official announcement as far as I'm concerned. Thanks for the heads up.

    Here's the flier for all to see...

    I'll be there for sure. Day before my birthday too, here's hoping for some cosmic luck that day...

    I will not be in the show guys, there was a mix up in communication.

    It's tomorrow night!

    So who's going? I plan to.

    It makes sense that it got cold again, just in time for us to hang outside of MPH. ;)

    I went by today and many pieces were up. There were many that sat unpacked on a table, while others were being removed from a suitcase. I was able to find out that the piece I really want is not a raffle item, but the price was about $120 more than I thought it would be. How crowded will the store be?

    I'll be there. Just look for the loud bearded guy with orange carhartt on may or may not have a Pabst in hand.

    Very. MPH is not the largest place.

    The more crowded the shows, the better. Tell people your name and make friends! Toys are always secondary for me at these types of events. Lots and lots of really good lookin' stuff.
