The Home for Odd, Ugly and Neglected Toys

Weirdo Toys at Heroes Con 2009

So for those who don't know, the Heroes Convention is a comic con that takes place every year in Charlotte, NC. It usually happens around Father's Day weekend. It's actually this weekend – June 19-21.

Heroes Con

Anyway, I try to make it there every year. I shop around some for random comics, toys and stuff, but I'm usually hanging around with my buddies from Wide Awake Press, Top Shelf or Dollar Bin. I'll be doing the same this year, but this time Weirdo Toys is representing a little bit. It's not much, but I've managed to design the very first Weirdo Toys t-shirt. Maybe you'll recognize the guy featured on the shirt?

Apple Devil Shirt

Apple Devil Shirt

The shirt is American Apparel brand, Asphalt-colored, 100% cotton, unisex tee. I'll have S, M, L and XL for sale. The shirt will be $20. If you guys like it, I can even put them up for sale here on blog.

Anyway, if any of you are in Charlotte this weekend, be sure to drop by and say hello, and while your at it, be sure to stop by and support the Wide Awake, Top Shelf and Dollar Bin crews:

    That’s just an awesome shirt. Apple Devil in the hizzay!

    Unfortunately, Wizard World Philadelphia is also this weekend, and that’s hella closer than the Heroes Convention (which I’ve heard nothing but good things about). I’m always on the lookout for Weirdo Toys no matter where I go!

  3. @ the pizza – Thanks. Good to know Apple Devil is badass ;) I’ll post the shirts here soon. I have to figure out how to create a purchasing system on the site.

    @ Ben – I’d love to go to Wizard World, but like you said about Heroes Con – It’s way too far away. Thanks for looking out for Weirdo Toys :D
