Fan Event Attendance - 002

Yes, I was there the 20th of January at the Royal Botanical Gardens and I had a great time looking around for some cool stuff with the best deal and reasonable price! I got a Transformers Masterpiece by Takara and I can't wait to show this as soon as I make that transition from Marvel. The overall ToyCon experience was like TFCon! Though there was a whole row of Masters of the Universe and Star Wars in there but the whole place was dominated by tables of Transformers toys. Hopefully the March ToyCon will be a little different. Hopefully we see some collectible statues and we need some Figma and Figuarts toys. There should be someone out there selling these Japanese toys that can bring to these kind of events. Anyways, here are some photos.

Spot the Difference

This is more like a "spot the defect" game than the spot the difference type that some folks play, but this here is a real story of just how toy companies are not immune to big errors when it comes to creating and packaging their toys. So it is really important to keep those receipts. By looking at these two Leonardos, it shouldn't take you 5 seconds to spot the difference.

(camera distance, picture quality- not part of the game)

Both these Leonardos are brand new and still inside these packages. Their heads and their feet may be angled slightly different from one another but that is not the answer I'm looking for. If you still can't find it you might as well check out my Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles review at:

...think it through, and come back here.
