*RECAP* Designer Con 2010

Hello...

Rain! I love it, especially if you're a California driver.  We simply cannot drive in wet conditions.  On our way up to Pasadena for this year's Designer Con, we encountered several stops due to accidents.  We saw about 7 accidents!  Not your normal two car bumper to bumper incident, it was pile ups.   We saw some cars turned over, on its side, smashed, etc.   We also saw multiple car accident's where it involved 6 cars...crazy!  Luckily the "pile ups" were cleared to the side and our 2.5 hour drive wasn't as bad as it seemed (haha).

This was our first time attending and we weren't going to let a little rain ruin our time.  Not this guy (below) who already got some goodies.

We met some cool people, gave daps to the normal folks, and chopped it up a bit with some booth holders.  I was surprised to have met people who were just starting up on the toy game.  Seeing this just fuels my motivation!

Peekaboo and his “The Birds” figure.  I wanted to get me a second "The Birds" figure, but all 4 sold out.  This particular figure is considerably lighter than the first.  (I'll post that soon).
