Thanks Paddy! (vinreaper)

So... about a month ago a lot of us folks from the Statue Forum attended the New York Comic Con. It was a great convention made even better by the gathering of so many forum friends. It was great meeting a bunch of folks that I chat with online almost daily. One of the highlights of the trip for me, and I'm sure for many others was the Saturday dinner at Pasta Lovers. A great time was had by all and it was made possible through the efforts of our own VinReaper (Pat). He set up the dinner, lined up the drawing prizes from Chris Uminga, Matt Fletcher and Billy Fowler and just made sure we all had a good time. Thanks Paddy! Here's to hoping we can do it again next year!

As a gesture of our appreciation, a group of forum members got together to get a nice original art commission for you. I did a little research of past posts and found out that your favorite characters are Deadpool and the Silver Surfer. With that info, Gene Gonzales was commissioned to put this cool piece together for you. I hope you like it!



Thanks to the following members for helping out with this:

Bill F.(67WM)
Mike G. (bat_collector)
Lou (Alex655321)
Rod (rocket)
Bill V. (Underdog07)
Drew (Galactus)
Eric (vaultman)
Dave (jadegiant)
Ken (blink90210)
John F. (vince-vell)
Omar (primal)
Sebrina (DC_universe_grl)
Ant (J Storm)
Charlie (SVD)
John (Tattoo-X)
Shauna (Tattoo-S)
Tony (High Lord Apocolypse)



Oh yeah, As a bonus, I dropped some colors on the piece too.



Thanks Paddy for all your efforts during the con and for just being a cool dude.

OMFG!



You guys are crazy and I love all of you for it!

It was truly not necessary! But I am so appreciative of it! You guys are the best. And its because you guys are that I did organize the dinner! This is just another testament of how much all of you are just that!

I am choked up and truly undeserving! Your friendships are more then enough by far!

I don't know what else to say, but thank you everyone! It will be a centerpiece to my entire collection!

Love you guys! You guys are the greatest!

I am truly touched!

Oh yeah, it was Dave's idea to include the NYCC 2011 or bust sign. I think it's a great sentiment! I know I'm gonna try for next year.
