I'm not sure I understand all the details, but this made the news in China. There was a Toy Expo in Taiching China recently, and in it, a display of Japanese toys (Likely a Bandai-Asia display) featuring the Neo Jumbo Machinder Mazinger Z.

Despite the "do not touch" signs, some kid did and toppled the case over. Onlookers took pictures, posted it on the internet, and then, well, you know how that goes.

According to the report, when the parent was confronted with what the child had done, she responded with the chinese equivalent of "What's the big deal?"

Parenting at its finest.

Our local paper, the Lowell Sun, was onhand at the summit to give some exposure.

Also, check out the short video:

2008 was the year that I started taking CDX, and the summit, seriously. Egged on by Dan I decided to host the summit at my place that year, and attempted to make it a big event. I think some people bemoaned the idea of putting the event on Facebook and expanding our audience, but in the long run it worked out OK.

I ended up renting tables for the first time, and I rented too many, making the summit look a bit desolate, despite having our largest turnout yet. The specter of rain loomed ominously forcing us to move trade fodder into my already crowded garage.

Lots of new faces showed up that year, some would go on to be regular CDX contributors.

Highlights of that year:

- Numerous giveaways, which were totally not targeted to that crowd. Sponsors sent a lot of stuff, and the crowd reaction was "meh". I think this was the last time I did a raffle.
- Matt Doughty spending almost the entire summit in my garage, building a powered suit out of first generation Glyos figures.

I’ve been working with Josh on CollectionDX for eight years now. I published my first review for CollectionDX on August 6th, 2005. I’ve had the opportunity over those eight years to help grow the brand of CollectionDX, from handling advertising to juggling editorial duties, and a little bit of everything else along the way. It’s been an adventure, and I have had a lot of cool stuff happen thanks to the silly toy reviews and articles I have written for the site over the years.

The 2007 summit was held at Sanjeev's house in Braintree MA, and was the first one we had "sponsored" (meaning companies sent out toys to be raffled off). Turnout started to increase with some people I didn't know in person for the first time.

Things of note:

- Jason's 6' Gundam makes another appearance
- Matt from Onell Design makes his first appearance
- Bob Eggleton (Godzilla Artist) makes his first and only appearance
- Jason's custom Gekiganger III Jumbo makes it's first of many appearances. Remember when making custom Machinders was a thing?
- There are no tables, so everyone trades on the ground.
- Dave brought a box of mini-carnival machinders.
- Roger brought porn.
- Mazinger Ring Toss

The 2006 summit is where shit got real. Dave, Sanjeev, Mason and I all went down to King of Prussia, Pennsylvania to Mark’s house for the summit that year. It was one hell of a trip. There’s a pretty thorough write-up that year on the site, but I’ll go over what I remember as the highlights:

- Fat Acceptance Convention at the hotel we booked ourselves at
- Sanjeev’s irrational fear of little people
- Scrapple.
- Mark’s amazing home theatre
- Roller Derby girls crashing the summit
- Gamera breaking the speed limit

As we entered the video age, I captured the summit on video, including us doing a MST3K style riffing over the Japanese version of Spiderman.

The summit still stayed about the same size as previous years, not including roller derby girls.
