    At table one, The "ASYLUM ESCAPE" diorama was featured. This depicted a scene where four of Gotham's most notorious psychotics have escaped from their cells and gathered in the Shock Therapy Chamber at Arkham Asylum as they set off a massive explosion to cover their daring breakout!





    I was SO rushed and pressed for time trying to get this display ready in time for the meet that I was still finishing these figures on the day of the show!!! I did not even have time to paint pupils into the eyes of all the characters!! I will be doing that n the coming days!








    THE JOKER creeped out quite a few people at the meet.







    THE PENGUIN made it clear that he was NOT a villain to be trifled with, armed with his two deadly "bumbershoot" umbrellas!









    TWO-FACE spent the day casually flipping his two-headed silver dollar, letting fate decide if he would do good or evil to the visitors of MEGO MEET!








    With his flamboyant flair for theatricality, THE RIDDLER threatened many with his solid-brass walking cane while baffling visitors with his endless conundrums.

    "SUMMONING THE HEROES"

    With the terrible prison break at Arkham Asylum threatening the city, POLICE COMMISSIONER JAMES GORDON flashes the BATSIGNAL from the roof of police headquarters, soliciting the help of the Caped Crusaders!






    NOTE: Sadly, the DC Direct Batsignal Prop featured in this weekend's display was STOLEN from under my display table at some point between Saturday night's wrap-up, and the following morning at 10 AM. The prop was brand new in its original box and now it is gone. While disappointed, I remain philosophical and ultimately am not too upset about this theft: I brought this Batsignal only as a "place-holder" prop to display my custom Commissioner Gordon figure. I left a duplicate of this prop at home AND ultimately i am planning on custom-building my own (much more accurate and detailed) Batsignal prop anyway. It is somewhat annoying, however, that an item which is now valued at upwards of $250 (minimum on eBay) just walked away. Grrr!

    "GOTHAM NIGHT WATCH"

    Never ones to shirk responsibility, THE BATMAN & ROBIN THE BOY WONDER respond promptly to the Commissioner's call for help!! From the rooftop of Gotham Warehouse & Storage, they survey the chaos at distant Arkham Asylum and prepare to confront the oncoming threat!

    Stolen bat signal!?
    How's this happen?
    The hotel should have video of everyone coming out of that area.
    Do they know there was a theft?

    That is so messed up that someone stole it!
    I hope you have been talking to the hotel about it because that is not an easy piece to obtain.
    Maybe it's best that we won't be there for MM next year.

    I promptly looked into that on Sunday afternoon when I discovered the bat signal was missing. The hotel staff reviewed the video surveillance footage shot by the camera immediately outside that room between the hours of 11 PM on Saturday and 10 AM on Sunday morning. All they could see were the other vendor individuals leaving that room with large plain brown boxes. I am afraid I'm going to have to chalk this up to a learning experience: NEVER leave anything behind that is small enough to walk away. It could have been a lot worse, I suppose. One of my custom action figures could have been stolen. In that way, I was lucky.
