Hey Folks,

Ok, not long now until NYCC opens up and we can all go nuts over the new and exciting stuff that is surely going to be there!  I've done my best to bring a load of goods to the table this year - most of which is en route to NYC via express mail as I write this.  Fingers crossed all arrives safe and sound!

I will be at booth #208 - sharing a spot with my good friend Niall Anderson (TRU:TEK and the casting mad scientist of The Disarticulators).  We are in the TENACIOUS TOYS Collective Space - all sorts of stuff in the space.  HUGE thanks to Benny, of Tenacious Toys, for the massive amount of legwork, and for getting this spot sorted for Niall and me!

So, yeah - I've gotten a lot of posts and emails asking about when and how much for the various releases I'll be doing.  Since I will only be able to accept cash, and I want interested collectors to know what they'll need to have on hand, please refer to the below list of releases (including dates and times where applicable), and please try to bring exact change if possible!  So - here's the final list (minus a few bits and bobs):

PLEASE NOTE!  As these items are all traveling to NYCC via mail or my suitcase, I cannot offer to hold items at the con for later shipping, etc.  Nor can I 'put aside' items for folks who might not be coming on a certain day for a certan release.  All purchases must be paid for and taken to their new homes.  Any online sales that follow will take place either immediately following the con or after I return home to Tokyo.  I will update this info in a "Post Con" blogpost.
