3 more artists have joined since that version of the flyer. Looks like a quite a big show!

If you're thinking of going, go!  I went last year, had a blast, got to meet
so many great people, made stronger bonds with friends who are now like family,
and had such a blast!  There was an impromptu Wacky panel, too, with all the greats,
and even more are going to be out there, so who knows? (hint, hint...)

I'll be there!

Why the heck aren't you on that flyer Paul?! You're one of the best writers in Topps arsenal - and way too modest! It should be on there. Period. Anyway, it should be a good show, especially with some of the other guests appearing. Vincenzo is coming all the way from the Netherlands, so it will be a rare opportunity for fans to meet him.

LOL, you're WAY too kind, Neil!  You will be missed, definitely.

My dear friend, Joe Grossberg, will be there, with his own table, and you must stop by and say hi and
check out all his great stuff!  Chad will be there, too!  All the greats!

And Linda Blair, too  >:D

Paul should be on the flyer, he can hang out at my table and I can tell everyone who he is. Linda Blair is going to be there??? The promotion for the show isn't very good. Not as many celebrity guests as last year.

Geez, I completely forgot about Wicked Packages and Creepy Containers!  Had planned to order the preview sets, but had so much going on last year that I forgot.  Gotta look into that.......

Hi Wacky fans, Just got home from a Great Toy Con in Sinny Las Vegas! Yes I have stickers and sets of stickers and mini prints and sketch cards... (custom Wackdoodles (my brand) and some older Topps ANS Wacky artist returns)... all available at show pricing (which is the same as my standard pricing... unless more titles have been added...etc.).

I am planning to update my product flyers as I have added some new stuff (including uncut sheets) to my line up... but will take me a few days to get sorted out after a blast of a weekend!

Lots of photos on FaceBook (courtesy of April Engstrom and her orchestra).

And these showing my show candy store set up... people wouldn't leave it alone... and my GPK artist buddy (Chenduz) helped me chase off some pesky paparazzi.

threw both an ANS1 and 2 set into my suitcase as a last minute 'ya never know' item for the con.

fortuitously came home with a dual auto Soggy Bottom card!

and the show, as always, was great!  It's a shame that Topps didn't want to participate, which makes it even more impressive that
these artists came and did what they did, and they are all top notch fantastic, both at what they do and how they interact with the fans.

All the greats, Dave, Brent, Joe Simko, Smokin' (with great stories, as always!), Jon Gregory, Mark Pingitore, Mike Barnard, James Warhola,
Layron, Jeff Z., Chenduz! (a big surprise, a truly great guy!), my friends Sir Chad and Joe Grossberg!  Joe was nice enough to let me sit as his table
for most of Saturday, the day I was there, and he had some great mockups of some Wacky products he's done, beautifully crafted, a true class act!

Got to meet Patrick and some of his buddies, awesome guys!  The Tosers were there, wonderful people!

Many wonderful die-hard GPK fans there, with great stories, met many of them while at Joe's table!  Clint was there
with his "wares," nice guy, too!

I didn't see him, but others met Tom Kenney, and he's a reported Wacky fan!  I heard he loved Dave's Soggybottom parody, and he was very gracious with his fans!

I know I sound like I'm blowing smoke, but it's the truth, it's just a fantastic time and a pleasure to meet and know
these people!  If you ever get a chance to attend one of these, you won't regret it!

That looks like it was a well-loaded show.  Very cool.
