i think the forums ate my post, so let me try this again:

it's highly unlikely you left anime boston 2008 without picking up something from the dealer's room, artist's alley, or both. so, post your purchases here. you can share what you're into and see what others are digging as well.

i guess i'll go first:

anime: jubei-chan complete collection

manga: saikano, volumes 3-7

video games: railfan (ps3), taiko no tatsujin ds, kira kira rainbow pack, jump ultimate stars (all for the DS)

artwork: a chibi portrait of my girlfriend and i hugging, chibi artwork of gaara from naruto hugging his gourde

miscellaneous: mokona plushie, two t-shirts (one legend of zelda with funky artwork, and another that simply says "no. you can't has.")

all in all i'd say i easily spent almost 500 dollars (possibly more). thank goodness for tax refunds!

:thumbup: Good idea Nick,

I got an Anime Boston '08 shirt in the only size they had left Sunday, XXL.

And I *finally* found the two things that I have been looking for almost my entire fandom life;

Daisuke Jigen & Goemon Ishikawa XIII from Lupin III Figures. :D

I also got a 4th Hokage pin to go in my character pin collection.

The rest of the time I was busy selling my own buttons in the Artist Alley!

Unfortunately we didn't bring nearly enough cash this year and we had enough to feed ourselves and about $20 besides. *facepalm* Needless to say we didn't get much this year... heheh...

Anyway:
Iruka-sensei Plushie : birthday present for my friend
5 Mini-Slimes from Ragnarok Online : those things are so cute ^o^ They were $1.50 apiece and the size of a large marble. We got a bunch of them for our friends who couldn't come to AB this year. The little Slime plushie was cute, but it was overpriced like whoa :x

I had a really low budget (like, under $50 low). I'm so glad I have a hopefully set job for spring/summer/fall, so I can fix that next year. >>;

Anyway.
I bought;
- A papou fruit plushie,
a KH keyblade necklace,
a cute little Sora pin,
two artworks of Axel & Roxas,
and I didn't technically buy it, my friend's mom did for me; an Anime Boston shirt.

After reading these, I remember the one thing I didn't get. I wanted to get the AB shirt, but for some reason I couldn't find the AB Dealers Table anywhere :( Yeah, I could've asked someone... but I'm a guy. That would only show weakness :cool:
