Another NYCC is in the books.
It was another crazy round trip that left me happily exhausted, bookending my convention experience with no sleep and two of the busiest shifts I’ve ever had at work. But when I finally met up with Phil, Pat, Tony, Michael, Ed and the rest of the Standup Guys it was totally worth it. One of the fun things about any sort of collecting subculture is the people who share your passion and I’m pretty lucky to be surrounded by the nerds that I am. I was even able to bring Julia with me to share the day with me, get her first vinyl toy and introduce her to some of the best folks I know.
It was great catching up with Chris and Pus, meeting our overseas buddies, meeting Paulie from Septic Death (who I’ve been at APP with multiple times it seems, but never knew he was he!) and reveling in a few hours of geekiness. I picked up a few new toys, took pictures of a few others (Devilman Finkshit?) and still marveled at how much people seem to like the NAG.
I haven’t had a chance to take pictures of any of the toys I bought, but here are a few fun ones from the show. Glitter Nagball (didn’t buy) and SkullOrm (did buy). Pus, Julia and I. Mecha-ju thingie (didn’t buy)
I’ll update soon with the haul.
Thanks again Pus, Chris, and the Standup Guys for a hell of a year!
