Robert, from Kung Fu Toys, has sent us photos of the Vinyl Toy Network show.  It took place on May 6th at the Pasadena Convention Center, and from most accounts, felt like a mini San Diego Comic Con.  There were a number of toy companies, retailers and artists, so vinyl collectors could spend lots of time and money.
