iMech News 6.5.2014

So much going on! SO MUCH!!!! It’s been a crazy couple of months with preparing for Wonderfest and failing to complete 2 out of 4 of the planned new releases in time for the show. BUT… these releases are still coming and soon. So let’s get to the good stuff….

WonderFest USA 2014 Wrap-Up »

2014wfbooth

Wonderfest was a few days ago and it was a total blast… what I got to see of it anyway as most of my time was spent behind the table. But I got to see a lot of you that I met last year and meet a bunch of you for the first time. I’ve already purchased my table for next year (moving from #7 to #80) so will get to see everyone again. There was only one iMech product in the show which was pretty disappointing (discussing it with everyone here) so I’m looking into doing a Best iMech award if only in an unofficial fashion. Stay tuned for that!

JerseyFest Aug 1-3 2014 »

I didn’t make it to Jerseyfest last year for a variety of reasons, but this year it’s going to happen. I already booked the hotel and table so it’s on! The Best iMech award is going to happen at that show for sure so get your build-ups done and on the tables in the contest! I’m not sure what the award will be yet… at least a trophy… probably a gift cert for the shop too, but it should be fun regardless to see a bunch of our build-ups in one place! Hope to see you there!

Online iMech Contest? »

And to not leave our VERY large international contingent in the lurch, we’ll be doing an online contest soon as well. This will likely be an end of the year contest, something like a Best iMech build-up of 2014 and will happen in early January. Start your build-ups now, take GOOD photos of the entire process (because that’s awesome for everyone), and details will come.
