Mainly to talk about Monster Scenes, but I am hoping to get some info on PS stuff. Really stoked to finally be able to meet Andy Yanchus. Hoping their table will be in dealer room B also. That would be even more reason for me to spend most of my day hanging out in there.

Yes! I think it would be great to get some info on the PS. It'll be interesting to find out what other future demented deals he's worked out for the MS?! Also if you can, Trevor, ask Andy what he thinks about the PS add-ons. I was told through another source that he didn't like any of the add-ons and I just would like to hear it from him. I tried to gain audience with him when I started years ago to pick his brain but it never came to pass. Now that he is with Dennis, I highly doubt that he'll change his opinion. Just curious!
I'll see what I can find out. If nothing else, I think my Giant Bird prototype might lure him to the display. And if they are in Dealer B, and setting up Friday night, while I am setting up , , ,
Getting ahead of myself here. Brain has been racing since reading the news. The endless possibilities.
Anyway, the AroarA kits will be fairly well represented. I'm planning on bringing the Iggy, Mossy, Proto, and Raptor as well as the most recent base layout. You can't fully appreciate the kits until you see them in person. The colors, the way they seem like natural extensions of the line.
While I didn't get the opportunity to set up my add-on kits due to space constraints. I did show some of the parts to Andy. I was talking about how you 'got' the concept. Color, look, etc. He was surprised that so many of them were hollow cast. And he did like the colors. I didn't get a vibe one way or the other on how he felt about them, but he didn't say he hated them or anything.
Honestly, I was too busy geeking out, and suffering from Wonderfest brain to think about asking too many direct questions. I just let him tell things as he felt like it. He seemed to want to talk more, when he wasn't pressed on things.
And there was a lot of cool stuff in the slide show he did in the theater upstairs. There was also a bunch of stuff that didn't interest me about cars and planes, though it was cool to learn that he actually carved the masters for some of the car bodies.
From the pics I saw it looked like there was still a bunch of room on the tables for more kits. Probably time restraints to set up were a factor? Anyway, looked like a great display again. Nice and neat! way to go guys!!!!!
Not so much time, as space. Yeah, I could have crowded things more, but I thought it looked better with a bit of room. Gave each kit a chance to stand on it's own. Though, your Mosschops (Rob's) and Protoceratops (mine) were displayed painted. And Andy did like how the proto was posable. I showed him how the legs and head moved.
Yeah. That was very popular. And many thank to Steve for bringing and setting up his kits. I only had 3 of my unpainted ones there, all the rest were Steve's. He was at it for quite a while snapping them all together and setting them up Friday night.
Sounds like you had a most excellent time,any pictures? Andy
Yeah. About 90 of them. Including some my daughter took while we were setting up Friday night, with Andy observing and pointing things out as we went.
