and there you have it. Super Gaffiti Kid will be turned into a really real 10-Doh! figure later this year. i wanted thank all of the artists that took the time to participate in our little contest. hopefully, we'll be making plenty more 10-Doh! figures for many years, so i'd like to do another contest down the road. we should have some figures for sale at SDCC this year, so keep checking back for more updates.


it was our second year exhibiting at Wonder Con and setup took us a while. we arrived at 1 and move in went smoothly. but, we didn't get out of there until 7. i think we were just tired and we were movin really slow.

tons of people showed up all 3 days. friday was the slowest day, saturday was crazy busy, and sunday was short but steady.

we had our standard booth again, and had our new So Analog resin figures for sale. we also brought some of the customs from our Dcon custom show.

i love me some Captain America, i sure hope the movie is good. i tried the new game and it seemed decent. the other image of the Tshirt tower of terror. our booth was suck behind this monster. it made the show feel claustrophobic for us. we still got plenty of traffic, but that doesn't mean i didn't want to burn that ugly mess down.

we didn't get to see all of the costumes out there. they always get stuck up front taking photos for hours. these were some of my favorites. you gotta love Ax Cop, Adventure Time, and Bat Wolfman was pretty funny.

this M.O.D.O.K. was awesome. Galactus was pretty good too.

we always eat good up in SF. our friend Daisy made us fancy individual bread puddings with fakin bacon. we actually had ice cream for dinner one night. then we always end our trip with breakfast at the Millbrae Pancake house before we head home.

no convention blog update would be complete without some sleepy time photos. it's hard to see Jerome cuz of the glare, but he was snoozin away in there.

overall, Wonder Con was a great show. sales weren't quite as good as last year, but still ok. we had lots of repeat buyers which was encouraging, and hopefully we made some new fans. we plan on being back next year and hopefully in a better location away from the Tshirt tower.
