    I Hated The Meet

    I hated having to see tons of awesome figures and stuff just laying there on the dealers tables rather than in my collection. I hated being reminded of my talentless-ness by all those AMAZING customs, not to mention the oh-so-talented customizers. I hated spending waaay too much money filling holes in my collection (Yeah, I'm talking to you, Berto, and your deliciously skinny-booted Batman!). And I especially hated being reminded that I can no longer just take my "guys" and go a few doors down to play Megos whenever I want. Now I have to travel to Wheeling to hang out with a bunch of really cool people and talk dolls, pop culture and other cool stuff AND I only get to do it once a year.


    Man, I hate that.

    I hated it too because I couldn't be there!! But...lots of wonderful stories and photos from everyone!!! I live vicariously through you the members here. I would never be able to unshackle myself from the fetters of marriage to get to the Megomeet. Usually it's the guys who are geeks. In my case it's me...

        Man, I hate that.

        Amen! Thankfully the "hanging with cool people" part is the true highlight.

            wish I could have gone. I was planning on it in fact but then life got in the way. Maybe next year

              I hate that its only like a day and a half. Oh well. I was broke half way thru Sat. My big regret was missing out on Dave Lee's Rayder Figure. (Implied and misspelled on porpose.)

                Wee, I hate being reminded of my own inadequacy at these events as well. I sympathize.

                  I hated the fact that I wasn't there, and you were.
                  That makes me soooo mad.....
