Much love and appreciation to Birdy, Bug and Nakanari for coming all the way to Chicago for the opening and putting on such an awesome show!

Props also go out to all of our friends (you know who you are) who helped out over the last week and more to pull off the event.

Tobias, you rocked the party, you're amazing!

And finally, huge thanks to everyone who came to the opening for making it a great time.

Here are the photos...more photos of the show pieces to come in a few days....

Thanks for another awesome opening. Not only do you guys host custom figure shows like this and supply goodly amounts of high-life, you proudly invite local artists and designers to participate and show off their stuff. And that is beyond dope. kudos and thanks.

love,

This show is great, my favorite Rotofugi show yet. To anyone who missed the opening party, be sure to at least get in there and see the show before it ends.

The party was a great time, and I'm glad we got there early. Thank you Whitney and Kirby for being awesome hosts and having a killer store.

thanx for sharing, XKach!........ive been dying to see shots of the works on display, and you have quenched thine thirst..........
there are so many shots of ones i have not seen yet, and they all are just kick booty.......very inspirational...............so thanx again for sharing.
kirby.......this is gonna sound anal, but here goes.......in looking at the shot of the Rotofugi Orange piece, it looks like Rotofugi Droog Alex is taking a pretty big lean forward (the one holding up the glass of Milk Plus)..........he should be standing upright......
he might have come a lil' loose in shipping or something, and it might require your skillfull surgical hands to alter to proper stance..........much like the successful operation you did on my Conjoined Monkey Twin Soup piece.
just thought you should know, but it is yours, you can do whatcha want with it, of course!.........
miQ

thanx again X!
