Pushead's Skeletal Carnival 3 @ SDCC 2008 Feat. Usugrow and Mike Sutfin!!!

IMG_0375 400x533

The most anticipated and I would argue one of the best events at SDCC this year was Pushead's Skeletal Carnival 3 featuring Japanese artist Usugrow and local artist Mike Sutfin at the Super 7 booth. It began with the hardcore Pushead fans in a dark corner waiting for our passes to see what place in line we would get. In an interesting twist, 1st, 2nd and 3rd place were drawn by lottery so one had 2 chances to get a good spot up front.

I apologize in advance for the crappy toy pics. It was crowded, I was sweating, nervous, anxious and impatient.

Although Carl was really ill, he looks very healthy in this picture showing off his Pushead "Grail Bag". For a $1,000 blind bag, he got at least $4,000 worth of un-painted toys. Truly the stuff of legends.

Those of us that spent over a certain amount were given this HP Sandas which are awesome in their own regard, but they were really tickets for another surprise event later that evening. So we all came back and gathered at 6:39 pm with our HP Sandas...

So what was the surprise event? In an amazing display of generosity unheard of in the toy industry, Pushead gave everyone that had an HP Sanda a GID Skull Captain with three stumps to signify Skeletal Carnival 3....!!! OMG!!! What a great gift to his fan. It came with a pre-release of the new Mountain Dew drinks featuring labels by both Pushead and Mike Sutfin. Undoubtably an event we will not forget!! THANK YOU Pushead, JT, Usugrow, Mike, David, Chris!!!
