Alternative Cafe. I should stress this is a *working* coffee shop, so folks who stop by to look at the figures (which line both walls) should be respectful of that. The staff are very friendly and understand there will be lots of toy nerds showing up to check out the toys. But while you're there, why not order a cup of jo, have a seat, and enjoy the free wifi.
The toys on the bottom shelf along the right wall are lined with the participating artists' custom sets. (Looks like a few of the custom sets haven't arrived yet. I'll get those up as they arrive at the show.)
The figures are now on sale at the Alternative Cafe. After the show ends, whatever's left will be sold online through fig-x.jp and fig-lab.com.

The show also features a massive retrospective of past releases of Ilanena's Dai Kaiju Card Monsters.
|There are only 2 of these (Ilanena keeps 1 example of every toy he makes). I actually won the set that was auctioned at the Taipei Toy Festival a couple years ago. Each figure has on-impact LED strobe light inside. ;-)|
