I'm looking forward to seeing all the Japanese Toy and Kaiju fans at this event ! I've seen some incredible customs and one-offs being created for this show only, so be sure and check Rotofugi and the ToyKarma site for more updates leading up to the show ;-) More surprises, too !

I'm pretty excited to see some RxH and Cronic release in the US, Chicago no less! Also to see Spoons and some other great talent crawl away from the West Coast is cool too.

FYI...there will be a preview list for show pieces (pre-sales):

Send an email to toykarma@rotofugi.com to get on it!

Show exclusive toy releases, however, will not be available for pre-sales. First shot will be at the opening, and then if there are any left, we'll offer them through the online store in the week or so following the opening.

I've never been to one of these, it'll be my first one.

Will it cost anything to get in?

thanks :o

Anyone who lives between Atlanta and Chicago wanna ride/carpool? I can always use gas money and don't mind helping out (I'm not a weird rapist, seriously!) plus it's cheaper than a plane for me to drive my Saturn up.

I'm super excited. I'll be up in a week for the Wizard World, than back just a few weeks after that!
