I may seem like the unlikeliest member of the 6-Pack to go to Comic Con. I don’t read comics, I’m not as current with geek culture as I once was, my home isn’t adorned with the rich artistry of talents, like trophies in a hunter’s den. I’m just not that guy. It isn’t because I Read MoreNo Comments on Chris (Arguing With Myself) Goes to New York Comic Con
Another year another CT Horrorfest, and once again the Pint was a proud sponsor of the event. Taking place at the Naugatuck Event Center on September 14, 2019, the show can only be classified as an unmitigated success.

Another Year, and another Terrificon in the books!!! It’s no secret that we consider Terrificon our highlight show of the year.

On October 28th I ventured to the Best Western in North Haven, CT to search for collectibles at the Northeast Toy and Collectibles Show. While I primarily collect Hasbro’s G.I. Joe, I also look for select Transformers, M.A.S.K., and other properties that I had a connection to in my youth. It’s also a good excuse Read MoreNo Comments on G.I.

While yours truly enjoys the tabletop gaming scene, my heart has always belonged to video games. I received my original NES for Christmas 1986 and I’m quite certain that my parents couldn’t have imagined how much gaming would become a part of the fabric of who I am. Over the course of the past Read MoreNo Comments on THE PINT INVADES – RETRO WORLD EXPO No Comments on THE PINT INVADES – TERRIFICON 2018!!!
Con’s have certainly grown in the past decade. I remember a time when a “big show” was in a large hotel’s conference room (sometimes they actually rolled the room dividers back and used TWO conference rooms!!!!), and there were maybe a couple hundred sweaty nerds digging through longboxes looking for that one or Read MoreNo Comments on THE PINT INVADES – CONNECTICON / CT F.I.G.
