    Many photos of new MVH bootlegs dropped this morning, including an imitation Clyde DX. That one really surprised me. The bootlegger would need to have an original to create a new mould from, no?

    Anyway, be careful.

    ^^ why does this surprise you? He was a collector before he went to his bootlegging ways. In a way, the greed and such of some of this community inevitably created this bootlegger. He was just like many of these Fresh Meat collectors now, only interested in the current hot shit, and paying stupid $ for the toys... many knew that, so when they were selling their MVH and other makers, they would try and go to him first, because they were getting 1500-2500US for a DX. mind you this is years back now when prices were'nt actually that bad... yet he was one of the first of this new wave of chinese have to have it now will overpay to have it. this kicked the prices up. He finally got pissed off over it and started up the bootleg sweatshop.

    I've always seen Clyde as especially hard to come by, that's all. Did not realise he had bought extensively in the past

    There's about 30 painted Clyde DX's out there, the majority coming from Candy Gore at Stranger Factory (15 full clyde dx, 12 Brandt, 3 by Rich. There's some mashups by Brandt too) Clydes releasing at SDCC, various Stranger Factory shows(i recall 2 other shows, but only like 2 pieces per show), as well as Circus Posterous booth 2 years in a row at DCON. Remember, Zheng already has the DX mold... so technically he could of just went after one of the blank heads from the blind bags Brandt sold of just the heads at dcon as well. there is also some heads only that are painted. so there is opportunities for him to grab one to bootleg.

    Since we haven't seen much by way of previews yet, What does everyone realistically hope to see?

    Sounds like a lot of painted runs and not so much by way of blanks (one marble run confirmed) and one offs (haven't heard anything).

    Personally, I'm hoping to see the first release of the fighters, and the second release of painted V3 Doji (which I remember Rich said last year would be on GID vinyl). My dream get would still be a giant (leviathan, ollie, berserker), but I'm trying to keep it realistic :lol:

    As it stands based on what was posted this morning, I'm gonna be a happy fella come this weekend no matter what! Can't wait to see you all on Saturday!

    Krampus and Doji love! Doji Ver.3 is my favorite toy Rich has made and while I won’t be there, I’d still love to gawk at the pictures of him later haha.

    Don't expect one-offs, or at the very least not a lot of them. There were a whopping 2 at DCON and that was an RSVP of almost double if not more.

    Yup i agree prob not many one offs but I guess we will see. However, the difference between BS3 and DCon was tiny compared to the time between then and now.

    This may be being made up for the fact that it seemed that most everything is going to be painted. Personally, I find that very exciting!
