I'm really glad Primus

I'm really glad Primus bowling was caught on tape. It looked like after enough rolls, the thing just started to warp on impact! The throw at the end really hit it. And man, that was a gorgeous G1 Jetfire... My jaw dropped when I saw them pull it out of the box!

I really am annoyed that I couldn't make it to this year's summit. Hopefully in the future I'll be able to make my way there though. We'll just have to see.

I liked every minute of the video (except the robo-bowling). Anyway, the piece which fascinated me is Sanjeev's GIN GIN - I never knew it ever existed! Did I see a Great Mazinger Jumbo Machinder in a bin at 07:53? A friend of mine was looking for spare fists!

If it's a diecast, anime-accurate and in anime-color I will pre-order one. Comanda Goman rules!

Right now I'm drooling to watch episode 7 again on DVD!

Nice to meet ya'll

Aye, this is Scott, one of the bro's who attended the ECSUMMIT 2010. Man that was fun/interesting. I thank you all for bringing back the memories. I will speak for myself and say I haven't thought much of our collection in the past 10 years. I knew it existed, I knew it was a good one, other than that I didn't know there were other huge fans that appreciated these as much as we did. The Summit reignited in me an appreciation for these fine relics and how big a part of my childhood they were.

Want to give a shout out and thank Mrs. Big in Waltham for giving us 8 year olds the "heads up" on the importance of preserving these toys. I can't believe we actually did! She was very CONVINCING, borderline stern about not losing missiles and such. Very nice lady though from what I remember.

We brought about 30% of our collection so at some point I can go through the rest, unpackage and take some nice pictures for you to view. We've got some sh*#!

John, thanks for giving me that "Serioustoyz" magazine. Umm, I hope you gave it to me and I didn't just walk off with 'er :) This thing is one of the coolest presentations of a historical toy archive I've ever seen. I pick it up once a day and browse. I will be purchasing the next mag when it comes out. Some of these toys absolutley blow my mind. Also, interesting to see what the starting bid is in the magazine, then what it sold for on the website.

Summit was great this year.

Summit was great this year. We almost need to make it a 2 day event now, as it's getting harder and harder to get to know everyone. My only regret is not being able to mingle more with some of the folks who showed up later in the day.

"You can't sell it until you get it from him, but you gotta sell it to pay him to get it to sell it".
---Jerilock, talking about me trying to raise the money I need to pay for the toys I already bought....

I certainly would have

I certainly would have showed up had the cost of travel not been so prohibitive.

Toy archives?

Glad to meet many, and glad it was a B-U-Tiful day for hanging outdoors. Bummer I got there later, and missed a few long-time-no-sees, like Dan, and Nadia!

MechaZone Dave, for sure keep us posted on your project.

And GoodGravies! Did anyone even think to bring out the Morphy Catalog for anyone new to browse through?
Scott, if you like the SeriousToyz catalog, your head'll explode with the Morphy's one(solid packed with Japanese vintage, and modern toys).
Maybe an "Past Auction House Catalog Archive" box, could be a fun feature, to have sitting out at these gatherings. They sure bring a smile, and are a nostalgic trip, right along with all the fantastic toys everyone brought.

As examples of how well the trading, and "insider" pricing on cool stuff goes, may as well post haul pics up if ya got 'em.

OK, this is one great part of the summit. Many cool deals to be made, many with just trading of toys, a few with cash, just seeing stuff you didn't even know you wanted until it shows up in someone's trade-pile.
Everyone has different collecting tastes, and it shows in the great variety of stuffs on the tables.
