The VTN Show has become a bit of an annual thing for me. It just happens to land on the same sunday as our May visit to So Cal to celebrate my mom and daughter's birthdays. Very convenient for me. So in one weekend, I get to see my family, celebrate my mom and daughter's birthdays, hang out with LASK and check out VTN!! Win/Win for everyone! Woot!! VTN was fun. The room was bigger this year thank god, but it's really mainly a western toy show. I'm not completely opposed to that, but I wish there was more Japanese toys. Super 7 didn't make it due to a conflict with the Le Merde show. A couple of cool exclusives to be had, but nothing earth-shattering.

Cameron Tiede showed off his new resin figure. It's pretty big and heavy, but kinda cool....
