It's taken me more than a week to unwind from the Meet. Still have my stuff in tubs and display cases. And to all that have messaged me about stuff they saw in pics or on video...the post MegoMeet list will be coming soon...
First, I just want to say a big THANK YOU to all that stopped by my tables and said hello, bought something, or just admired the Mego goodness that was there. From WeatherWizard Corey to Vintage Mike to Trappy. Thanks. I love talking toys...wish I could do it for a living. That's how much I enjoy it.
Thanks to all the regulars:
Steve (Azrak)...Dude, you know I save that box of stuff just for you and Derek (Flynne) every year BTW...you have me to thank for Tom buying those 6 packs of Molson Ice. Made the switch years ago because Heinekin was just not as good as I remembered it. It's a shame that Sam Adams Octoberfest isn't sold year round....or you would have really gotten hammered. Keep up the good work in the Custom section...
Chuck (megocrazy) ... You drive like a man possessed "Is that a Minivan with a MegoMeet sticker in the back window??" Thanks for hosting the Megosuite this year...and those shirts ROCK. Hopefully the Trek thing pans out cause I wanna see that figure.
Derek (Flynne) ... I'm really glad you made it this year...even with all the bad things that happened...I hope everything for you was made a little better by being amongst "Family"...your Mego Family. You know the door is always open here in NY/NJ for you and the Mrs. And your also my good luck charm in finding Megos in the wild And a HUGE THANK YOU for the Custom Auction figure that soon will be in my collection...I can't say thanks enough.
Jim (megojim)...Ah, the elder statesman and all around great guy to hang with...AWESOME Jeckyl and Hyde figure. The amount of work that went into that figure was well worth what you were charging for it. Thanks for fixing Major Matt...and just thanks for being there. Between you and Scott A. I couldn't stop laughing the last night in the MegoSuite. BTW...I wanna see the original Custom you were working on for the contest. That would have taken first place IMHO...
Scott A. GODZILLA I have to catch my breath after that. I was literally in tears. BTW...you have Chuck to thank for finding those Pirate Pistols...I thought I was gonna completely lose it if he didn't find them. It was great seeing ya again.
Ron (stabilo) It's the same thing every year with you...didn't know if you were gonna make it...but as usual you made it. That was the most complete and best looking Mego Monster Collection I've ever seen...Absolutely incredible. One year I will actually make it to one of the sessions on Mego collecting. Thanks for the trade on the Batman Box...I'm glad that Brian didn't have to go home with it
Chad (noelani) Please tell your son to stop trying to sell me his custom Zelda figure It's a great piece...but I don't know anything about the character It's great to see a dad and his son share what you two share. BTW...Goblin cut me off...cheatin' son of a .....
Art (MegoMilk) ...Dude, you are one of the funniest people I know. Next time bring some customs to SELL!!! I want the Lion O and the Green Hornet that you made...those figures were freakin' cool. BTW...Jonah got his but WHOOPED!!! by Hutch. Horsepower is horsepower...Jonah used to ride one and Hutch drove one to kick Jonah's butt. I'll catch ya at the Javitz show this year...and if you have any original Tiny Titans pages...bring 'em along
Brian Leitner ...One of the most talented people here on the museum. I really wanted to buy some more of your customs...and plan to do in the near future. I'm so stoked about Hawkeye. It's probably the best piece you've done...well it's a tie...with the Galactus figure. Looking forward to future dealings Brian. Thanks again.
Dave McC...Thanks for putting this whole thing together again this year. You do it every year...but I don't think that people realize how much time and effort goes into this...for that I thank you.
Last but certainly not least...to my Big Bro Tom (Wannabemego) I love you man. Without you I probably don't go to the Meet. Every year you selflessly go to the show and make sure that everything and everyone is taken care of. You don't even collect Megos and still do this thing every year. I can't do this without you...so Thanks for everything.
I know there are so many more people to thank...but you all get the gist of what I am saying here. Everyone here on the Museum should attend this Meet at least once just to see the closeness that you can get from a Toy show that has people from all walks of life sharing one passion and that is Megos.
