    Why aren't these things set up on the west coast? Vancouver should be able to support something like this... shouldn't it?

    The people who organize the shows live in the Toronto area, so I'm pretty sure that's why both TFcon and the Action Figure Expo are held here.

    A black & white Cyclonus Sketch it's sick. Milne added the red eyes and created a stormy background with rain & lightning.

    If I knew who some good contacts were I'd start asking around for sponsors.
    I wonder if Spencer at 3&Up would be interested?

    I just can't think of other people that would be willing to put one on...
