So Georgio, Denis, Mars and I went to the anime con in Moncton on Friday . The last 2 years by the time we got there the dealers kept telling us they had a lot of cool stuff but it had been pillaged already so we decided to go as soon as it opened this year.
The con was about the same level last year, but going at 1:00 worked out really well, I think we got some great scores.
5 twleve inch Lupin "Stylish figures", I almost missed these 'cause I thought they'd be like $70 a pop or something, but they were only 20. I bought the whole set! (they only had one Lupin and one Zenigata, AND THEY ARE MINE!)
I got two Sgt. Frog models I didn't won for $10 each.
I got 18 manga for $70. 5 Angelic Layers (accidentally got two copies of issue 2) and 13 Kara Kanos. I think I'm only missing like 3 issues of Kare Kano now.
Costumes were mostly lame. There were a couple of really good Eva costumes and big ups to one teenage girl dressed as Pris.

I realized that I never put in my 2 cents on this event last month.
We had some good laughs at the beginning at the expense of others
I scored some cool stuff:
Both Patlabor movies limited edition DVD sets Redhawk DVD - one of the crappiest things we've been wanting to watch Fujiko figure (like Dan's Jigen as seen above) A kick-ass 10 inch Yamato spaceship toy Some manga a Gunbuster figurine a cool book by Amano (the guy who did the Vampire Hunter D designs)
Realizes that I now have nothing to look forward to since Battlestar finished
