Thanks for the props! Love your site BTW!
Working together with Chris Antista and the Laser Time gang on some promo items, they hit me back with this nice promo shot. Thanks!!
Be sure to check out their podcast and articles, super-funny wit regarding bad movies, 80's cartoons, comics, video games, game music... pretty much all the nerdly arts!
I didn't get out and shoot a lot of my own pics at the 2012 Chicago Adepticon, but fortunately this video by Chung Chow of Wargamers Consortium sums it up very well! My bit begins at the 19:45 mark. You can hear my sleep-deprived ramblings and see my extremely *ahem* humble table setup. But the show was great anyway, can't wait til next year!
Here's a video I just got from Steve Wiebe, whom you may know as the Donkey Kong champion from the film King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters. Being a big fan of both Donkey Kong and Steve Wiebe, I made him a trophy to commemorate his recent regaining of the Twin Galaxies record! So he made me a video to say thanks... but really it was my pleasure! I used my own Don Bomb Kongo figure, and built a custom girder platform with the scores and name plates. The ape was painted by kitbuilder extraordanaire, Robert S. Martin Jr.
Way to go on your record Steve!
Seems my nephew Brandon and I made it on the local news when we were at Comic-Con in San Diego! Lene from KUSI stopped us to talk about the convention, and even let me do a shout-out for Mr.Dandy! It aired almost immediately so I didn't get to see it, but it's out there somewhere. Maybe we'll see it one day. Thanks to those of you who made contact after seeing the segment.
Sorry if I contributed to the "explicit" rating for the show...listen if you dare!
Just got a mention on 40K Radio with Spencer, Chipley and Scott, in the Adepticon 2010 episode and also the "Why Oh Why?" episode. Thanks a lot guys! You've just made one more loyal Freebota!
This was the 1998 Mad Model Party in Pasadena.... probably the best show I ever had. I used to go by the name G-Zero, but this was before I knew how important it was to choose a business name that you can secure the dot-com domain for. At that time I only had a sub-page on my father-in-law's website, an afterthought which was ink-stamped on the back of my hurriedly designed biz cards. How the times have changed.
That weekend I only had 2 different figures for offer, but I sold a bunch of them. It was a real victory to get out there, meet the collectors, and sell my own stuff, especially after the crushing blow of having Streamline/Avatar fold up just after getting married. This show also would lead to the meeting that landed me a job at Mattel eventually.
Any guesses as to my age here? I know I look like I was about 13, but I was actually double that.
Another satisfied customer/shill/buddy.
Here's an old article I still had bookmarked... Thanks for the nice words, Fred! (formerly MoviePoopShoot.com)
