Weekend of Horrors

WOH

I spend the last weekend on the Weekend of Horrors convention. That was a very nice and spooky weekend.

Today I wrote about it for the Amusio magazine.

And some lines for ACTION FIGURE DISTRICT as well.

Actionfigurado

Again it was time for a visit on the Actionfigurado in Duiven. It was a great day. I went there with Chris and we had a nice day many chats and a coffee with some guys from the AFD board.

Duiven 10/2011

Yesterday I went with Andre (McGee) to the Actionfigurado in Duiven. It was nice as always to meet the folks from blogs ‘n’ boards. And as always I spend more money than actually planed. Here’s what I brought home from Duiven: The DID Writing Table, a M4 Case from GoGoGo, (I’ll use this one as a stage case) The Bits & Pieces Set from Shrunken Head Studios and a Phicen Seamless Body.

Intermodellbau 2011

On Wednesday I visited the Intermodellbau in Dortmund. It was the same like the last years The same exhibitors showing the same exhibits. If you haven’t been there before, it’s really worth to visit the fair. It’s impressive to see all the dioramas and vehicles. But if you know the fair, it’s enough to visit it every couple of years.

And you won’t find a lot of 1:6 stuff there. There are only a few figure dealers around, but anyway I found some small props.

What I Bought in Duiven

I can’t show the props I bought for the figure competition, because the figures will be published anonymously and showing some props would be a bad spoiler.
So there are only two things left to show, the Triad Toys Alpha lady and the little piggy. Here they are:

Actionfigurado

Yesterday I went with Amithi to the Actionfigurado in Duiven. As always it was nice to meet the usual suspects, traders, friends, folks from the board and some new people. Thank you guys for many entertaining and interesting talks. The hours passed by so quickly. I didn’t spend much money this time. I bought only a few props for my figure competition project on the AFD Board, a Triad Toys Alpha Body and a little pig. I’ll take images later today. Here are a few pictures from the fair

Yummy

Last Sunday I went to the Fashion Doll Fair in Cologne. Due to the bad weather conditions a lot of expected visitors and dealers didn’t show up. I was looking for some new Chinese furniture, but the table of the guys from Holland remained unfilled as well. So I made Klaus happy where I bought another Hot Toys Caucasian and some Re-Ment food for my little fellows. Little Dunedin still has some problems using the chopsticks.

Back from Duiven

The visit of the Duiven toy fare was nice as always. Nice to meet the usual suspects and to meet some new people from the boards ‘n blogs. Thanks to Raven, I enjoyed our talk.
Here is what I brought home from Duiven.

3 beer crates, 1 head in a gas bottle, Eva, a dog a firefighter, a table, a coffee machine, 2 Re-Ment surprise packs and a fireplug

The cigar smoker head from Loading Toys and Eva from Triad Toys. I like the head sculpts.

The firefighter from 21st Century Toys

This figure came with some nice props. Look at the chainsaw!

Fireplug and dog. The fireplug will look great in my street diorama.

I had good luck with the Re-Ment surprise packs. I love the Jaguar-beer. Reminds me on my days in South-East Asia.

Duiven

As always it was nice, to meet some of the usual suspects and talk to some new people as well.
Here’s what I bought:

Duiven

The three Dragon bodies will loose their head some day and get a new custom head. The two DID guys would work well as some 60s style musicians. I think the Hot Toys muscle guy will make an excelent gladiator. With the “Legacy of Valor” girl I will try some artificial aging to turn her in an old Roman lady.
And I bought two wooden chairs and the Virtual Toys “Stone Cold Killer” Set. This is Bruce Willis as Hartigan in Sin City.
