KID ROBOT had a toy signing at thier SoHo store. I keep asking everyone to confirm how BADASS these are. So let me set a few things straight…
- Yes, I went the Kid Robot at 6pm to buy a set of “dolls”
- No, I will not tell you how much I spent on them (it’s easy enough to figure out)
- Yes, I went back at 6:30 to GET ON LINE to get all four signed
- No, I will not sell them on e-bay (even though I could make a fortune)
So this toy signing was like nothing I’ve ever been to before. All of humanity came together for free Red Stripe, kickass music and of course, the chance to discuss the meaning of life.
One discussion that my line-mates and I had was regarding which cultural category we now belonged to. I felt that waiting on line to get some dolls signed might make me a bit of a dork. Another person in line said that she liked to think that we were hipsters. Yet another person liked the word “geek” because he also was a member of the masses that waited on line to see Star Wars. Whatever the label, we were all sweating our asses off to get these toys signed. I can’t explain what made me wait online to do this, but I (only partially joking) told everyone that this was our Woodstock. Are we all dorks because that made everyone laugh?
If anyone has any pictures of the signing or knows of all the film cameras that were there, let me know.
