(Queuing up for autograph session circa 2013. Who was signing? I had zero idea :p)
- "STGCC Guests can sign the STGCC Event Guide, as well as any officially licensed and properly accredited products".
- For pete's sake, don't give STGCC Guests bootleg(s) or unlicensed merchandise to sign, can?
- "You are limited to maximum of TWO ITEMS PER PERSON per guest." Not "2 BOXES" filled with multiple items, hor!
- Want to have more items signed by the guest? "Re-queue", or come back at a later signing session.
- "Unless the guests agree, please note that there will be no photo opportunities". Don't anyhowly do selfies without asking, or use flash.
- "Do not jump queues or attempt to do so. Do not shove. Do not monopolize the guest’s time if there are others waiting." - Don't be kiasu, kiasee, or kancheong spider, and you'll be fine.
- "Assume that whatever you have to say must be said in 30 seconds or less, while the guest is signing your item."
- Election was the Friday before, so leave your grievances (if any) at the balotting boxes, and enjoy your geeklife! :)

If you've followed my blog for some time now, you'd recognize the TEQ63 character from The Philippines' based urban artist QUICCS. From resin figurines to Dunny editions, this mecha-helmed character has taken on numerous forms and guises, and for the coming #STGCC2015, he will debut in a brand new form: [The Real] TEQ63 1:18th Scale collectible figure!
"A few months back, I built prototypes for my (The Real) TEQ63 concept which features my character in a more realistically proportioned design, both in the 1/12th and the 1/6th scale. While we are still researching for the proper production process for those (since that will be my first attempt at the mixed media format and still considering suppliers especially for the clothing), I decided to build one in the 1:18th 3 3/4 category in full resin format.
The 1/18th scale stands at about 3.75 inches, with no articulation, and comes in a carded blister pack. More colorways and new figures (TEQ63's posse) are planned for this scale as well, so stay tuned for those!" - shared QUICCS.
(Above artwork for blister card backing by Vincent Aseo / IG @vincentaseo)

Tokidoki continues their "controversial" collaboration with Mattel, makers of Barbie with a follow up to their 2011 Tattooed Barbie, with not one, but TWO Barbies! Both of whom as well celebrates the 10th Anniversary of the Tokidoki brand.
To be made available September 1st on www.thebarbiecollection.com (and select retailers), two editions are to be had: the (general release?) PINK haired Barbie (with the Donutella hairband / in-box pic via Luisa La Greca), and the limited edition neko/cat-ear headband PURPLE haired Barbie - of which only 999pcs are available (*GASP*)
To my limited knowledge, I do not see mass tattoos being on Barbie at all regularly, so this is a real treat, methinks!
Will update more if I find pricing on either … meanwhile, more snaps courtesy of IG @simonelegno and @tokidokibrand!
Since my earlier announcement post about Threezero's collaboration with Bethesda Studio, images has since been unveiled (via the Fallout Facebook) of the POWER ARMOR from "Fallout 4" video game to be made an articulated collectible!
