What do you plan on buying at ACEN this year? Or what do you usually tend to buy at conventions? I'm curious

I have an addiction to plushies. I have Link, Totoro, Catbus, Black Mokona... and that's it :(
If I were at Acen this year, I would be plushie queen :)

Figures that pass my critical eye muster. Not many do. I find I really best to see the actual figure "in hand" to judge. So many look pretty good in ads etc (where they are often prototypes), but are uninspiring when you actually see the final product.

Got nabbed by the two Anarchy Panty & Stocking figures at Kollision, as well as the small 3-piece sets of P&S w/Chuck, and Scanty & Kneesocks w/Fastener. The Anarchy figures did have a few rough spots on them though.

Like to find a GOOD Sailor Saturn and a GOOD Sailor Pluto figure. And I'm always hot for Sailor Mars. There are others on my list but I'm running out of room. Thinking of buying another, larger, house... (get them priorities right!)
:highfive:

Other than a tophat, if I find something nice I might just buy it. I've never bought anything from the dealer's room. Last year I did come across something I really wanted but I was broke. I regret it.

Ah, let's see...always been a bit of a cheapskate to be honest, so I never plan on purchasing things, although I do bring money just in case (I was really tempted to bid on some of that perler art last year, but realized I had no place to put it...disappointing, really). That said, if I were to see something GitS related that really caught my eye, or possibly some "build it yourself" model that I felt could occupy my down time adequately, I'd possibly buy it.

Of course, you never really know what you want to buy until you see it in front of you, mentally shout "dear god, I MUST HAVE THIS", and promptly dump the contents of your wallet on the dealer's table.

Same. I know vendors raise the price so high that I never buy anything from them at all when I know I can get it online for less. The only time I will buy something is if its rare and I cant find it online. Me being a gunpla builder, Ill be looking for some rare kits.

Honestly didn't see much I wanted this year. Got my copy of gunbuster that I was looking for, but I wasn't willing to spend $35 a disk for gunbuster 2. Nobody had Ceres. I got a wall scroll for my mom and then some prints and a cell. Other than that... most of my money was spent on food.

I wasn't sure where else to look but here it goes....>.>...anyone here see a print for like 20 bucks with "what does it mean" on it with like the nyan cat, rainbow dash, and rainicorn on it?..by the time i found it i was out of money and i know a friend who'd love it...x_x i know there was a ton of art work out but i was wondering if someone knew if the artist who did it maybe had a website or something?.....
