Anime Boston 2011: My Secret Shame: The Dealers’ Room


Anybody who knows me knows that I try to keep a level head and a professional air when I work a convention. However, when the dealers’ room opens up, I let loose and tend to, well… drunken sailors at happy hour have less self-control than I do. DVDs, figures, artbooks, and toys – I try to do all of the catching up on my pack-ratting and collecting. This year was no different, as the photos below show.

After all was said and done, I ended up with the following items:
