The votes are in and...

What's up Everyone,

Many of you remember my earlier post about my collection being nominated for "Best Collection" for the Designer Toy Awards.  The votes are in and...I didn't win, lol.  Congrats to Mutonisyourfriend for the win.  

It's all good though, on the real, I was SUPER humbled and honored to be nominated for this inaugural event.  Rest assure, the collecting won't stop anytime soon, lol.  Thanks to all of you who voted for me, I really appreciate the support and all of the kind words.  And the Pete Fowler award looked so SICK!

Congrats to all of the category winners!
