    Thanks so much @treblekicker I always need to ask when I see something I haven't seen before. Great score!

    Don't know how I missed this thread till now, but I did. Thanks so much for posting all these pics.
    that first larger descrpition of Bunyan the ox sounds about right. Arne sculpted and did hand rotocasting of this, and did a stellar job.

    I've got this original painting that I bought at a show in NYC in 2008 from Bwana. It features Edward asleep (and drunk?).
    https://imgur.com/a/wCqQ8Wm
    I like how you can see Steven in Edward's dream.

    I guess it shows the end of a day like the one he spent trying to catch butterflies shown in this one from the "Welcome to Forest Island" book https://images.vinylpulse.com/vp_pics/maxtoyco/edward/unknown_b.jpg

    And also a similar theme as the one on the inside of one of the Steven toy boxes: https://imgur.com/a/YUf5zuh

    Some questions for the forum:
    1. Do you have any original paintings that feature Steven & Edward together? And would you be interested in selling?
    2. Do you think Bwana would be open to doing commission work that includes the two of them?
    3. I could swear that the image in the vinylpulse.com link above is cropped and that the full image includes Steven trying to escape Edward's net. Anyone have a link to the full image?

    Thanks!

    They don't get much friendlier than Bwana Spoons. He would most likely be interested painting up a commission with Steven & Edward taking on some adventures for ya :)

    why don't you ask?

    I grabbed a blind bag at Dcon this year, and got a Quiller. While I was hoping for an Aqualox, I love the Quiller figure. When Bwana offered the remaining blind bags online, I went for it and managed to grab another Quiller. Haha.

    @amc3 Google tells me that image from vinylpulse is from the "Welcome to Forest Island" book from Top Shelf. I can look at my copy tonight and see if there is a larger image inside, but based on the dimensions I think it's the full image. BTW, if you don't have a copy, even though Top Shelf says sold out, it's pretty easy to find.

    I got a few bags after the Con and was really happy with my pulls. Super stoked on the Golden Lonny ticket! The Palo Don is gorgeous and a VERY welcome surprise. The Quiller was my first choice of figures, the purple lame vinyl is awesome. Speaking of, I love the Aqualox but if anyone got a Hooligan they either want to sell or trade for Aqualox, I'm your guy.

    Oh thanks. But I already have the book and know that the image is on the cover. I have this memory of seeing it with more of the background and hills somewhere else though....

    Wow! You win. Haha.
    If anyone would rather have a Quiller than the Aqualox for their Hooligan, give a shout and we can get a three way trade going.

    Here are my guys from DCon. I pulled an Ugly Stardust and won a Golden Lonny on the Friday. I was Winner No.1 apparently. YES!! WOOHOO!

    Anyway, these dudes are fun. Ugly stands like a giant among the other Suns.
    (I also learned I was incorrectly tagging pics with "sonsofbrodarr" instead of "sunsofbrodarr". Whoops.)

    ^ I was surprised more people weren't coming forward with a win. There is still 1 unclaimed Lonny!

    The Lonny is so good. The gold accents on the ears(?) and hands are a nice touch.

    How many sold/won at the show?

    Now I bought another. Ugh.

    I'll be trading my second Ugly Stardust for anyone else, preferably Hooligan, if I get a dupe.

    You've got better odds of getting the Aualox via trade as well if you get a Hooligan. You know where to find me. :)

    I got a golden ticket today! It came with this guy...
    [​IMG]

    Take a wild guess what the second figure I got today was...

    Go ahead.

    Guess.

    You'll never figure it out.

    Who wants to trade an Aqualox for a Quiller?!
