Wow, was I way off the mark on the last post. I griped about people making a big deal of a strong flu. Well, it turns out its 10 times more contagious and 10 times more deadly. Now, most restaurants and bars are closed. My county just issued a stay at home order. Lil Ms. McFavorite’s school is closed for at least a month. Craziest yet, 3.3 million people filed for unemployment in one week! Being a pro at it at this point, it’s not that different for me, but some people have never been unemployed. I’ll tell you what, I’ve never seen more people walking for recreation. No sports, no gyms, even at parks people should be staying 6 feet away from each other. Even playdates are canceled. We are in truly unprecedented territory.
Unfortunately, the would-be TFCon 3rd Party slides were in very precedented territory. With nothing really standing out, even a Unicron couldn’t save it. Something that seems par for the course, but is still super interesting, is a possible six-inch retro line for Joe. Now, this easily could be the current designs with just vintage cards. Maybe redecoes? Another status quo release, but that isn’t a bad thing when it comes to Hot Toys, is the Mando and Child. They’re absolutely gorgeous and one of those defining pieces for the show. Then Super7 releases yet another shipping delay email and it’s right back to the bad kind of normal. Isn’t that funny how it works that way.
Screw Calm, Stay Sane…Slick
