San Jose Super Toy, Comic and Collectible Show!
It was so crowded this time that one could barely peruse the toys on offer! We walked the whole thing but had to pass over the majority of booths due to the sheer overwhelming numbers of people in front of them. In fact, even though I and my Dad are huge toy fans, he bought nothing and I only bought one toy! Maybe it's the economy, maybe our tastes are getting more refined, but I think it had more to do with the overwhelming effort it would have taken to actually stop and look closely at any particular booth or toy. Of course it is always tough when you attend these things with other people too; when I am alone I can zig and zag and dart in and out of the throngs to my heart's content.
Whatever...the real reason we attended was so my daughter (who celebrates her 10th birthday today!) could meet the one and only Batgirl, Yvonne Craig! Yvonne was so super nice to us and everyone who came up to say 'hi' or get an autograph or a picture.
I'll post more about this one soon: Same Toyriffic time, same Toyriffic channel!
