    I didn't mean to put MPH on blast, they do a great job and I support them any chance that I get. I just saw certain things teased on Paul's Instagram and it was a bit jarring to not see them on display.

    Well its a pretty big deal to ppl going to the show to suddenly not see a good portion of the exhibit toys not on display during the opening. Especially when they are shown in advance by the creator in IG updates. So naturally ppl that want to purchase one are going to be questioning where they are even at. Lets not forget some ppl spend a lot of money to travel to these toy shows to.

    I do not think it is the person most of you believe it is. Only two items were purchased pre show from what I gathered.

    OK.....
    As a matter of fact, what might be worse is people going to those shows and seeing (or purchasing) a scratch or some sort of damage that occurred during shipping.
    I trust Brian to pull these pieces which he did.

    So keep digging for blame. I'm sure you will find it.

    Well that is a different matter entirely. I have nothing to blame them for i was just saying if any of that was true it would be very disheartening to the point of ppl not wanting to participate at all.

    Thank you for participating in the show with amazing pieces. Your pieces garnered the most attention and you were the only artist to sell all of their items on the first night. I hope the comments by others do not sway you from shows in the future.

    Thanks for the pictures @Patrickg2k
    The heavy lamé Fig Lab finger puppets look wow lined up like that. Anyone know if these we're painted up by Don @datadub?

    I just checked. Last year was early February, so pretty close.
    I thought I saw some #monstrosities on some of Guumon's posts, so hopefully there'll be a Round 4.

    I agree. I’m way closer but getting out of work and heading down there will be difficult on a Friday.

    Take great pics of opening night!!

    Glad I checked this thread. See one item I’d like to grab. I hope they do a mix of buy it now and raffle stuff like last year.

    Bring an umbrella and a really solid raincoat tomorrow. A plastic bag for any scores would probably go a long way too. Looks like we're going to get rained out in line

    Good news / Bad news?

    If the show plays out like it has for the past three years, whatever you buy, you won't be taking home since it will be on display for the duration of the show.....so no need for a plastic bag!

    And if it's still mostly lottery based sales, then no lines either! Just a crowd crowding into a crowded shop.

    Of course, that's based on past experience. It could be different this year, so maybe bring along a plastic bag just in case.
