Shortly after our Gamescom 2019 appearance in Cologne, Germany was another convention over at Seattle, Washington, USA that we were also participating in, and the term "hectic" doesn't even begin to describe how busy we were. Nevertheless, our first-ever PAX West appearance was an undeniable success, and we are back to tell you all about it.

First off, we have to talk about the crowd. Just by looking at the sea of people lining up during the opening day, you can immediately tell that the convention center was packed. It was exciting to be able to introduce our brand to all these passersby that may or may not have heard of us in the past. Even if most of them weren't collectors of any sort, their reception towards our products was still very positive. After interacting with Chockles and Peggy, they now have a newfound understanding and appreciation for this hobby. We look forward to accepting them all with open arms into our Official Collectors Club, where they can interact and mingle with other like-minded individuals.

Second, PVC Nation was a hit. With the right demographic, PVCs are, indeed, the key to success for our convention appearances. We also held a giveaway spree during the convention wherein attendees would scan their PAX West badge for a chance to take home one (1) PVC figure of their choice. Throughout the four days of the event, there were 31 lucky winners, each one a satisfied camper with their prize. It was a great way to not only expose the quality of our products to newcomers but also show them that collectibles don't have to cost a fortune to look good.

It wasn't only in our booth that we were able to showcase our resin statues. Our good friends over at Yacht Club Games also had all three color variations of our 1/4 scale resin Shovel Knight statue on display. Fans had a chance to see these for themselves while waiting in line to try out their new entry in the Shovel Knight franchise, Shovel Knight Dig.

 

Overall, PAX West 2019 was an absolute blast, and this won't be the last time you'll hear from us on the PAX West floor. Thank you to all our Official Collectors Club members who passed by and said hello, and a special thanks to JASON GEE for assisting us with the setup of our booth. Indeed, F4F is love, F4F is life! Stay tuned for more First 4 Figures news and updates through our First 4 Figures Official Collectors Club. Who knows, maybe our next adventure might be at a convention near you.
