The only two things I purchased this year at Fanime were a Rider nendo from the Dealer’s Hall and a Kidrobot Munny from the Charity Auction that was autographed/sketched on by the GAINAX staff in Japan.
So the story behind this Munny is that they took it to Japan and had it autographed by various people at GAINAX. Some of them drew sketches as well and wrote messages. Then they took it back to San Jose for the Charity Auction. The proceeds went to the American Red Cross.
The Kidrobot Munny also came with four random accessories. I like the Mari sketch on the lightning bolt the best.
Evangelion was the first anime series ever that I watched, so it is pretty cool to be able to own this.
The Charity Auction was the highlight of Fanime for me. There was a Fender Squier mini-acoustic guitar that was autographed by the MusicFest guests that went for $170 (I regret not bidding on it). Other items include a Noel and other Blazblu sketches that went way out of my budget range.
Good times, I’m looking forward to next year!
