Biggest celebrity of Joecon 2012: Marauder John.
I had a blast at Joecon, met alot of cool people, but by far the biggest thrill for me was Marauder John.
For those of you guys who didnt make it to the convention, the Marauder Gun Runners guys had an awsome booth set up. They had samples of all the weapons and gear they offer very neatly displayed. They had a ton of figures showcasing all those awsome weapons and gear. They encouraged people to pick up the figures and to play with them, get a feel for thier product and if you wanted to buy some stuff all you had to do was fill out a sheet of what you wanted and the guys would put your order together while you walked around and enjoyed the convention.
I think its awsome how with guys like Niel Ross, Kirk Bozigian and the Hasbro team, more people where crowding around the Marauderinc booth for a chance to say hi to John. It speaks volumes of how awsome thier product is, how friendly the guys are and how committed to our community they have become.
John even recognized my name when I handed him my order. He was busy as all heck, people lined up to ask questions and what not and the man still took the time out to tell me he recognized my name from when I've ordered on his site and that it was cool to meet me in person. I'm blown away by how cool that was.
John, Im a fan for life brother! Keep up the great work and thank you and your team for all the awsome guns and gear you've made for us over the years.
