ANd I have to warn you that he can be a bit of a dick in person.

Thanks for the warning Joe,but i don't care either way anyways.I love his work,not want to spoon with him or anything lol.
Last year at Chicago Con my mate over there queued up to get an Autograph from him.He told me that a lot of people in the line in front of him were just plopping stuff down in front of him,saying"hi"[sometimes]and then just scooping their stuff up and walking away.That's gotta get to you.
When my friend got to him he started to chat to Ross about Superman and the JLA and Ross was so thrilled for someone that just wanted to actually have a friendly talk that he kept my mate there for ages.My Mate also got me an autograph and he said they spent about 5 minutes just working out what message to write me.I guess like anything it all depends on the mood at the time.

From what I've gathered (never having had the chance to go to a con) I think alot of fans behave pretty selfishly in those queues. It has to get to you, I would imagine.

Never met any celebs before. Never really had any desire to do so.  Undecided

As for my 'Holy Grails'...let's see...

Stuff that exists that I'd love to get my mitts on:

1/4 scale Christopher Reeve Superman
Eric So vinyl Hellboy
Bowen Hellboy Statue
Harley Quinn & Joker neon sign

Stuff that doesn't exist (but really should Smiley):

Christopher Reeve Superman action figure (preferably 1/6 scale from Hot Toys)
1/6 scale line of comic based DC figures from Hot Toys
DC based Premium Format statues and comiquettes from Sideshow Toys
Harley Quinn Mighty Mugg

got a pic of that Joker & Harley neon sign? Didn't know of it.

Very nice. I don't have a good neon sign place, but if they make an Aquaman or Legion one (I can dream), I WILL be buying it.

Hmmm I have 3, 2 will never ever be made and 1 has an outside chance...


1) Captain Carrot and The Amazing Zoo Crew..could be done as 2 packs...

2) Inferior 5

3) Doom Patrol (might one day be made...I hope)

Holy Grails? Okay here goes....

I'm a Marvel boy at heart and since the end of the 6" Marvel Legends is nigh, I'm struggling because there's just so many I still want including:

Shiar Imperial Guard (I'd settle for Gladiator)
Wrecking Crew (I'd settle for The Wrecker)
Cosmic series (I'd settle for Terrax or Jack of Hearts or The Collector)
Bring on the Bad Guys 2 (I'd settle for Controller, Grim Reaper or Stilt Man)
Street Fighters (I'd settle for Shang Chi or White Tiger or Misty Knight)
Alpha Flight (I'd settle for Puck)

.....and there's so many others such as 'Serpent Society', 'Soviet Super Soldiers', 'Thunderbolts', 'New Mutants', etc, etc. Not to mention armies of AIM, HAND and SHIELD figs.

As for others, I know I'm stretching here but in the DCU 13" figures my #1 choice would be Deathstroke the Terminator (best costume ever!).

I think you have a pretty good chance of getting Doom Patrol from DCUC - are you collecting those? In one of the other sites I go to they said in a Q&A that a character like The Chief wasn't too obscure. And I'd say Elasti-Girl is a lock as a C&C down the road.
