Though this may be an irrelevant note since I didn’t mention I was going!
I visited King Canaan for his birthday extravaganza (courtesy of his majesty’s fair lady), saw the Badass Brooklyn Beast Pete Petrone and, much to my blustery chagrin, also spent some time with that rogue Pat Sanders.
One of the greatest discoveries, however, was Toy Zipangu. I’m a big fan of Toy Tokyo, yet the ratio of sentai toys to non-sentai toys in Zipangu was completely insane. It’s a tiny place, but they have a straight across row of shelves consisting entirely of robots (or “Zords,” if you like) from Changeman to Dairanger and so on.
Now you must stone me with red hot rocks, for I bought nothing!
