Okay, so it may not have been the (anime) industry favorite of the weekend, but Wonder-con, a San Francisco based convention had quite a bit going on. Granted, most of it had to do with destroying my wallet. Less generic anime merc, but plenty of fun/quirky/high end work. Apparently, one shop was even selling Perfect Grade Gundam kits (which are huge!) for about 40 dollars under normal prices. Granted, they still cost more than $200, but good for those guys.
Stuff I wished I had bought/did buy:
Several things caught my eye, but what I really fell in love with was, of course, the shojo Scarlett Wtich, and this one Hayate the Combat Butler model. I stopped watching the show awhile back, but remember finding the cat-girl episode(s?) the most hilarious. So, yes, as I saw the figure, i was in love.
