Hey All, just got back from Chicago. It was an awesome trip. I snapped a few pictures, but not many. I was too busy diggin' through buckets, and browsing the new stuff. You can probably read full reports on other sites, but let me tell ya, this was one of the best shows I have been to. Barzso's new items were Above and Beyond!! The Fort, Daniel Boone Playset, and the Abbey were amazing. I came home with the playset, and told Santa to put me down for the rest.
TSSD was there with their fine products, including a preview of their new Civil War arty set. Plus they sold me several houses and bunker pieces, all of which my wife wants to paint up (my wife is awesome). I got to talk to Steve Weston as well. I've wanted to buy the adobe Church from him for awhile, but he didn't have one last year. He remembered me and brought one this year, which I snatched right up. It's just a stellar piece that will fit in well with all the Barzso adobe pieces.
And of course, I had to cruise by the Hobby Bunker booth... several times. They were really hoppin'. They had some great new foam pieces which were calling to me. You can see pictures of one of them here.
Meh, it's late, and I'd rather be playing with my stuff that typing. So more tomorrow.
