Designer Con 2014

After a number of years without a proper visit, we're headed back out to the West Coast, this time to attend the legendary Designer Con which happens this weekend, November 8th and 9th (Booth #401).

Located in Pasadena, California at the Pasadena Convention Center, Designer Con is loaded with tons of incredible artists that cover many different aspects of the independent toy world- from all around the globe! We are extra excited that our extended family from Tokyo will be in attendance, with RealxHead, Uamou and Skull Toys all rolling out fresh selections of sofubi magic.

This particular Designer Con will also mark the gathering of multiple members of the Glyos family of full production figure makers, with Marty "Full Throttle" Hansen (Kabuto Mushi), Spy Monkey Creations (Weaponeers of Monkaa), Jon Karis of LRG and Plastic Imagination (Rise of the Beasts) and new addition Mark Vasquez (Mystical Warriors of the Ring) all in attendance.

Hand casting machine Pj Bartlett of Spaced Out Design will also be there, debuting his brand new (and resin heavy) creation, Quarzenic!

Nemo Campisi from Nemo's Factory (who currently has a figure in the tooling process over at our factory) plans on showing his fantastic Robot prototype (produced by the masters at True Cast Studio, creators of the Glyos compatible Walking Dud figure) as well as some incredibly innovative hand made felt creations that need to be seen and handled to be believed.

The elusive Jesse Moore will be at the show in spirit only, as he continues to build his Screen Printing Death Star up in Beverly. Even though he's had to take an extended hiatus from production for most of this year, Skullface's daddy still has a few tricks up his sleeve. We'll miss you on this mission, Gimli, and will eat multiple In-N-Out Burgers in your honor.

The rollcall of talent lined up for this show is pretty intense. Here is a list of this year's vendors.

We want to send out a gigantic thank you to our great friends George and Ayleen of October Toys and Ben Goretsky of 3DRetro for putting such a powerhouse event together. Marc, Megan and I are very excited to be part of the action this year. Michelle and the girls will hopefully make it out for the next one!

Thanks for reading through this link bomb of a post!

Please come by Booth #401 and say hi, and we hope to see some of you real soon!
