    My son was blown away by the size of the Little Bird. He didn't believe me when I told him that we have one in the basement that he walks by literally every day! (I actually had to point it out to him when we got home)
    He picked up an old GI Joe foot locker from one of the vendors and was quite the happy camper.

    You're welcome, fire03!

    We sure take a lot of inspiration from the shows that came before us in the first decade of the 21st century. Glad you saw that in our show.

    Thanks for the compliments!

    A lot of great stuff.
    Those trees you seeat the weddingscene, who made those? Or are they something that can be bought? I have had a little project of my own, making a tree, but that is nothing as good as the ones we see here.
    More info on the trees please...

    Kevlarhead - Mark K. (who did the happily ever after drive off scene) custom made them. In fact, he was answering questions about them all weekend. I'm sorry I can't point you to a link where you can buy them online. Thanks for the compliments!

    Andrew - thanks for the compliments on the show! We'd love to have you and the rest of your Toronto contingent down to the show - and it would be easily drivable!

    Thank you again for all the compliments! We very much appreciate them!

    This looks like the best show I've seen in a decade, very cool. I wish there were more like it everywhere. Some really great ideas and variety of displays. Thanks for posting pics.

    Thanks very much for the compliments, guys!

    We certainly try to channel some of the look of the big shows from the first decade of the 21st century - glad people are making the comparisons!

    Redleg - you guys in the AZ Joeheads have done some swell set ups for shows as well! We're big fans!

    Thanks again for the compliments! Glad everyone is enjoying the photos!
