Two Years And Counting! Another Letter From the Webmaster
By Anthony Brucale
I know it's been a while. Long, perhaps too long. But a lot has been going
on lately, to put it lightly. So, what's been the cause of the delay?
Well, work, mainly. For those of you who don't know, I work freelance
in television, and working freelance sometimes means you have to get while
the gettin's good. It also means that you'll end up working a lot of double
shifts and 6-7 day work weeks. So, the delay? Life, really.
There's one other reason for the delay. To sum it up, it's
Glen Halitt's fault. OTFCC was a weekend of fun and frivolity, full of
good times, good friends, and the occasional drunken bridesmaid. It's
Glen's fault for having a good excuse to get my friends and I together
for a great weekend somewhere away from our homes each year. It's a shame
to see he and 3H depart from the Con.
So, if you didn't go, and you've been in a cave the past
month, check out our coverage of OTFCC. Lots of pics from the con are
in this month's mag, along with some great toy reviews courtesy of Daniel
Suh, and a new Knockoff Spotlight, penned by yours truly. Not bad for
the first update of our second year. (The site first went up on August
16th or so, though the offical launch was the following January.)
the con, I was also able to finally meet face-to-face with Bill from JRS
Toyword. He certainly runs a great site and is a top-notch dealer.
They've got a lot of excellent products in stock from around the world
(like the Reissue TM Hot Rod you see on the left) and they don't molest
you on the shipping, so be sure to check them out.
Also at the con, I had the pleasure of doing my first interview
with another fan-site. I haven't seen it posted yet, but be sure to check
out the Seacon Swamp;
it's a neat upstart site that I hope to see around for a long time to
Finally, I'd like to thank everyone who helped out with
this month's update, particularly M Sipher for contributing a lot of pics
that elsewhile would not have graced the pages of this site for many months
and my good friends from #WiiGii! for making the con unforgettable and
always helping remember things.
As always, questions and comments are welcomed. Enjoy!
