Wow, that was amazing. Really

Wow, that was amazing. Really appreciate the video. Ive never been to the Summit, but as you guys mentioned I felt like I was there. Good to see everyone hanging out and talking having a good time. I really thought those interviews were great too. Just to get peoples thoughts and opinions on the gathering and what brought them to this hobby.

You guys always do a great job and I for one really appreciate the effort put forth thru videos such as these and just the time put into the site itself.

As for what Im looking for as of recently, Ive pretty much been blown away by the announecment and pictures of Fewture Getter Robo G. Getter Dragon looks fantastic and I cant wait to see more of the G team and read any upcoming news you guys get regarding those releases. Keep up the good work and a thank you to everyone who contributes here.

Summit coverage is nice.

Summit coverage is nice. Focus shown on the characters that attend, balanced with shots of piles of toys!

Always a good time,and anyone can show up and have fun yapping.

It'll always be an overload of toys and conversation, you'll never get to everything you thought you would.
As some of the interviewees mentioned, some relatively hard to get toys show up, that you just won't find at any store, or flea market in the US.

If you ever felt like you missed the old days of walking into an actual toy store, like KMH, or wish you could travel to a Mandarake, this get-together /swap meet, is the closest you're likely to get.

Bring a Full Wallet is right!

Looks like ya'll have a blast every year. This is the.....second or third year of me trolling the site and any Summit coverage is always greatly appreciated.

Every year I intend to pack

Every year I intend to pack up and drive from Toronto, but something always happens RIGHT AT THE SAME TIME!
The video was nice to see, and I appreciate the interviews. Knowing how to pronounce Modcineaste is a particular kernel of knowledge that satiates my lurking inquisitive mind... I just have no idea what it means. I would love to know the meanings of various members' handles and how they came to chose them.
We have had some Toronto-based summits that included members of the old TBDX/Zinc Panic group and they are great memories of meeting great people. Kudos to you folks for building and maintaining a positive and inclusive community that stretches from the East coast and reaches around the world.

Wohoo! My interview came out

Wohoo! My interview came out more comprehensible than I remember. I was still a little buzzed from the Sapporo that Josh brought.

Thanks for the beer Josh !

Is that filter during the interviews supposed to help hide that some of us are pasty nerd boys :c

Very Cool...

Two short questions then the comments....

Whats the big centerpiece robot in the glass case thats mainly black with red and silver accents.

That grey tub with the huge amount of boxed gobots, whoever owns that can you
contact me if you reading this thx!!!

@Rainbot if you're reading this if you're making the trek down to the next summit
I'm also in Toronto lets do a roadtrip and I'll chip in the gas money.

This should be called CollectionDX Summit Unplugged. I really liked the interviews that
give peoples perspectives it makes it very personal.

I'm sure everyone is really nice but I really dig Sanjeev & Chachipowers interviews,
they seem like really chill dudes.. besides Josh & Adam of course.

I really liked the toy pan and scan, but not only that Chachipower also picked up some items and
gave us a better look, THX!!! That 2 foot vinyl voltron looks awesome and I'm not vinyl collector.

I like Josh Frasiers advice on the summit, and definition of toy karma - plus Chachipowers interview too.

very open and honest answers which I think summed it all up very nicely.

I really think that older toy collectors(basically that arent kids) are intelligent open minded
individuals that are also considerate for the most part. Cause when you think about it we'd have to
be open minded to be into the things were into. Plus intelligent to see the genius and amount of detail
that something deserves our attention.

I also think the basis of why we're into this hobby is that it takes us back to a time when life
wasn't as complicated as it is now and to a time that was really honestly joyful. And because we can
understand that feeling we are considerate of how other people feel

Great job to all, and I think its awesome to keep it in someones place... cause a venue would seem to formal.
Though just a suggetion maybe get some plastic shelving units on sale so you can work the vertical with toys
and give you a more room.

PS: I really think you should have a section that says what was your favorite top 5 when you were a kid
and what is your top 5 currently. Favorite toy of all time is too tough a question.

Great summit and great video. So cool seeing everyone interviewed. Thanks again for putting together such a cool event. I went intending to unload some toys but came home with more than I'd started with :)

Great Idea!

I'm so glad someone took the initiative to pick up a camera and film this. Both the on-the-fly stuff and interviews were interesting. (Thanks Chachipower, I'm sure it took some effort.)
If I were from the other end of PA, I think I'd make the trek.

While this was a great diversion, I'm looking forward to the next show proper. Nothing beats Josh and Adam one-on-one. (ex. "He's putting on a Batman costume.")

Looking forward to your thoughts on the new Miracle 'MA-01 Voltron' updates.
Wondering why new Ultra-Act figures are selling out so quick.
Enjoying the new TMNT figures!

Hellbot, if you don't mind me

Hellbot, if you don't mind me responding ;D

MA-01 looks like a beast and I'm salivating over it.

The new Ultra Acts sell out so quick because they're freaking amazing.

And I wholeheartedly agree about the new TMNT figures. The price point to playability match amazingly well and I'm super excited that Playmates finally got their act together. Leonardo is probably one of the coolest new figures on the American market. Even the Classic Collection is amazing.

I DON'T mind Jmann...

Everybody, comment away!

The thing about the Ultra-Acts is that I would wait until I could buy three or four at a time to save on shipping from Japan. But now, if you don't pre-order...
Also, you'd think Bandai would keep all of the Brothers in production. Maybe they will...

I've never had a problem with getting them. Which ones are you looking for?

Well, Zoffy like just about

Well, Zoffy like just about everyone else it seems.
Then the renewal Ultraman Hayata seemed kind of scarce. (I figured I 'might' replace my original if the price was right.)
Now I'm worried about Ace. (I guess I'd better face facts and pre-order him while I have a chance...)

After some browsing it seems Bluefin wasn't able to distribute these Ultra's in the US (and other territiories?) because of the Tsuburaya vs. Chaiyo lawsuits.(?)

But I see Max will supposedly be available through Bluefin...
