As the tradition goes, every once in a while, various boys and girls from the East coast get together to combine two things… Japanese toys and Dim sum.
Coined Dimsummit, we have made it an unofficial get together in between official toy summits.
This time, we get together at Chau Chow City in Dorchester and commence to eat good food, talk shop and lament over lost auctions.
Toys are brought out and with bellies full, the nerd porn reaches full tilt when Sanjeev pulls out his six inch Gin Gin.
Wait … what?
Straight from the bowels of Brownnoize Productions Teh jerk brings the limited 1 of 10 “antiqued” diecast of Grendizer’s most famed enemy robot. Regans eyes light up and she buys one.
Dave, Mason and Ben all bring various awesomeness to the table and once again… including, Ben’s painted custom Glyos figures, and a gift for your truly from Josh Barton , of his kick ass yokai foot, complete with serene and creepy header card. Dave of course brings a bootleg carnival machinder and I bring him a variant of A King Kong blow molded figure he needs to complete his set.
We all snap photos and weird out the various wait staff in our own special ways. Ed and Ryan, Lisa and Regan all add their own geek cards to the mix, but in the end Dave amazes us by eating a PORK BUN!!! For those who know him well, know Dave is a “picky eater “… the guy downs burgers and Pepsi with abandon, with a occasional pizza for good measure, so this cultural shift was exciting to say the least.
So much so I had to document the event. Enjoy the photos.
