One of the best parts of any show is the swag. I mostly obtained reference material but I’ve been to shows where I’ve walked out with t-shirts, pens and the like. Other than a free tote bag and some reading material, I guess I didn’t stumble upon anyone giving away free candy or toys. Some dealers were even selling toys. I bring this up because I had specific mission orders from Charles Moran to get him a sticker by Gaming Heads because they make Team Fortress 2 figures and support Valve and blah blah blah. After leaving Underground Toys’ booth, I made a 180 and walked straight into Gaming Heads booth. They had some glass display cabinets and a card table with 4 chairs in the middle. Very sparse considering what most vendors had on display (sorry Charles, no stickers). Quite frankly, it didn’t matter. Their Team Fortress 2 statues and figures looked amazing.
