Chicago RotoVisit next week...Stoked!!

Post  lostboyz on Wed Sep 18, 2013 12:58 am

Headin to Chicago for 1 night only to hit up Rotofugi next week. Really looking forward to filling an empty suitcase. Has anyone ever been? Any suggestions on what to pickup?
Apparently there is a release happening next week. Heading in blind.....S T O K E D santa

Definitely gonna try and kit out my Germ S004 a bit more but I am pretty noob. Might have to pick up a brotha for him although I don't want to blow the budget on just that. I suppose that is the draw back of being into multiple collections. Labor of love perhaps?
Just picked up two additional Detolfs so I need to fill these mothers up! I guess I'm in the thick of it now. Was showing my Dad my collection this last week and his words were "Hmm....if someone saw these toys they might thing you are weird".....bit of a dick Rolling Eyes

Yeah they don't have the assembly gear out but they will be more than happy to show you what they have in stock with the I pad mini and they go get it from the basement. As far as brotha for him they have Oilish and fort burnout jack that I know of
That place is fucking awesome

Heading in blind is the best way to go... it is serious toy mecca. You will find yourself circling the store over and over again, giggling like a schoolgirl... at least that's what I do when I go there...and I saw Anthony, Austin and Maz doing the same thing. Send Kirby and Whitney all our love!

Will be into that Oilish for sure! I saw a pic of a mini meltdown dunny on the "Green Pic" thread standing next to an Oilish. Where in the hell do I get that mini Meltdown Dunny??!?!?! I have the large one but that mini looks this shit!
Finally got the mini skeleton smorkin labbit to go with the 10inch . Having fun with this shit for sure!!
I have never had a hobby until these toys....unless you consider listenin to Slayer a hobby What a Face

Thanks! I appreciate it. Although I cannot say that my bank account will appreciate it. But what is it that Tom Waits said? "Money is just something you throw off the back of a train". I can dig that

Go to Ginos East Pizza across the street. Best pizza in Chitown, right across the street from Roto. I love you Oh, and get the special deep dish- has capricola, all sorts of stuff, it weighs like 10 pounds. I might be serious about that. Its close. Twisted Evil

Have fun! Chicago is cool...cant wait to go back and bring my bike with me for some urban shredding/exploring. Was only there for about 20hrs and then headed east. Shoulda stayed!!
Made it out with a pretty good take. The Kaiju cabinet had me trippin and the US Toys Ultraman has been in and out of my pocket ever since. Gonna take my time with that stuff for sure. So much cool Kaiju and I could have easily spent the whole lot right there.

Kirby kicked some good knowledge and helped me come to terms with Novice Collector enthusiasm....he even helped my GF come to terms with it. HAHA
The first thing I did when I was in the store was drop a Squadt which resulted in it being in 10 pieces on the floor....Kirby was cool and put it back together for what seemed like the hundredth time. Suckers are strong! an im an idiot Neutral 

Here is what I came home with:
Terror Boys OOZE
FortBurnout
2 Marshalls
4 Bearbricks
4 Misfortune Cats
US Toys Ultraman
Mini King Walder
Micro Owl #52

I want another one. I have developed a habit of grabbing a toy before leaving the house in the AM and always having one in my pocket...and of course his paint is wearing out a bit.

When my wife and I were just dating I used to take a toy with us to dinner and put it on the table. Then I started bringing 2. 1 was me and the other was her. I'd make 'em dance n crap all over the table while we waited for food. Surprisingly she thought it was funny.

going to Rotofugi this weekend What a Face

They probably wont have any Squadts, but they always have a good Coarse selection. If they have the new Omen Blinks, I'll get to see them in person.
