PROS:
- Meetings tons of cool people
- Putting faces to usernames (even tho i didnt meet enuff as i couldve)
- KR grab bag
- seeing fellow board members get the possessed (even tho i was unable to)
- Alot of sweet rump panels, freebies, movie posters.
- The patient/stress-free ppl in line for munkyking

theres a couple ppl i talked to in line for munkyking that i know were on the boards but i never found out usernames. So if you ever talked to a dude in a cubs hat, that was me! lol.


and i know this only about the posi, but we should point out the negs, so ppl can expect certain things, and wont be as angered about it.
CONS:
- Full-grown adults being immature over possessed. whether it was the raffle or exhibitors in-line first. "its a toy, get over it"
- whoever stole the KR display Smokey on sunday, deserves to get jumped and beaten badly.
- there's gonna be long lines, alot of improv organization, deal with it, dont whine or stress out, just go with the flow.

yeah some1 stole it in the last hour be4 closing. it was sooooo lame. joemm and one of members manning the booth tried to chase after him after a kind on-looker pointed out to us that we just got robbed. It woulda been nice to beat that punkass if we caught him...

aww rain you missed the coolest thing at subtext. i believe your son was crying so apina's daughter ran up to him and was checking to see what was wrong...he continued to cry so apina's daughter ran back up to us and grabbed a mini gwin and ran back to your son. as soon as she gave it to him he stopped. they ended up just playing with each other for a while. tooooooo awesome.

Spending quality time with each other. When we have long drives the time goes by fast because of the conversation. In depth disccusion of SDCC, the toys and the people we met made the drive home enjoyable.

LOL, that was so much fun. Duke is so handsome! AP was so tired when we got to the room, she left skid mark on the pillow from her face. lol I hope it was okay for her to give him that. Plus rain, I intruded her to the Little Rascals when you mentioned that at the Con, she love them. :)

I was hanging out at Neth's booth a lot (they were so hospitable and offered me a seat), and I saw some kid nab one of J's pieces off the table and take off. Someone at the booth next door saw the kid and grabbed him, but J made like Superman and leapt over his entire table. He said that last year it happened three times, and only one got away.

Highlights for me were...

- wtfunks. Man, you helped out MAJOR! Along with Hase and eckotyper's crew. Thanks a million, guys! =D>

- Meeting everyone and finally putting faces and personalities to all you cats! I'll be posting ndividual shout outs in my sdcc thread. :)

- Getting everything I wanted cuz everyone else was after other stuff.

- Helping RustedHalo get the gold HotChaCha.

- All of the kind words and mutual respect from the artists. I couldn't believe the rock star treatment I got! :prayer:

- Being asked to do sketches. I'm truly flattered to grace so many of your sketchbooks!

- Irina for such an incredible hook up. You know the one! And to those of you who weren't introduced, she was the one with the incredible cosmic eyes :heart:

- Rain's dinner! :rock:

- The sisters, ToyQube, J Neth and his beautiful wife, Mary at Wheaty Wheat with Luke Feldman, Joemm at VTN, and Juliana/Colorblok for being so, SO incredibly hospitable!

- I'm gonna second Elizabeth and say that I'm glad I didn't deal with the Possessed madness. I feel sorry for a lot of you guys, but it sure saved me a lot of grief!

- Watching ecko open my beer with his teeth when my lighter failed me. You are SAVAGE, my man! :lol:

- Cramming 6 of us in a single bed hotel room along with all of our stuff. Okay, so maybe not a highlight, but a personal record! Those floors were nasty! :lol:

- Chris and Nelson from MINDstyle for everything. You guys rule!

- Drinking with Tara, JLed, Buff, Hernandez, Marka, Aaron (Angry Woebots), Han, and Jester. That was dope!

- Seeing so many aMAZing protos. Next year is gonna be huge!

I'm sure there's more, but you know how it is... :)

what a nice thread this is!

Ok, good times: (in no particular order and I know I'm forgetting a lot))

hanging out with Mad and Barry from ATP Festival and seeing my toy for the first time
Meeting Jeff Soto at the Murphy booth
Discovering Super 7 and Brian Flynn's amazing prototypes/ my expensive new addiction
Meeting Dacosta and Jesse Hernandez, who both made me laugh so hard I started crying
having my first ever toy signing-- although there weren't any toys left to sign:(
Meeting lots of great people from the KR boards at Subtext
Also met Paul Chatem finally
almost breaking my tooth on a really frozen ice cream bar
hanging out with Irsk (shakes fist at MK)
Seeing a mob of like 100+ zombies on the street
Mark Murphy's party Saturday night-- where I got to meet and hang out with more cool people-- Esther Pearl Watson, Mark Todd, Soto,
and finally got to meet Joe Ledbetter in person (and his lovely gf)
getting every toy I wanted with less effort than I expected (the possessed was suppose to be a gift for Sas-- so that doesn't count)

Oh, Kathie, I forgot you and Brandt were at the Love Hate show. I saw you breifly while going for a beer.

Not sure if you would remember me or not, but I was the one at the table on the porch in the fedora sketching most of the night. That show would have been the perfect place to have met you!

Another highlight comes to mind, and that is Eoin3 making Hase and I laugh CONstantly. You are one funny dude, my friend! Take care of that ukelele (sp?)
