Nationale Figurendag (NL) 08.09.2018

Posted by Dad's Army on 09 Sep 2018, 18:22

Benno and I did join the first "national Figures day" in a old fortress near Utrecht (NL)
Of course our goal was promoting our hobby and FIGZ.
The fortress is a museum, and it was on national open monuments day.
The visitors where members of the Dutch Figures association, but also regulair museum visitors.
There where shops, for buying figures and books.
A plezant day it was.
I didn't make much photo's, but on the bottom of the site from this day, you can get a impressum.
From our forum there where also Pieter displaying his figures, and Martin with his shop.

Now to see some pics, look here: http://www.figurendag.nl/

Looks like an interesting event.
Is this every year?
Next time I would like to be there.

I would agree with Konrad. Looks like an interesting Event. This weekend I had to work so there was no chance. But maybe next year. Please keep us informed.

I liked to see so many kids at the event. The future of our hobby is in their hands.

I agree with you.
It is always nice to see young people doing our hobby.
I have two sons myself but unfortunately I lost the fight against the Playstation and X-Box.
And at the events there are also too few young people.
Only older ones.
And gray-haired grandpas.
Like me.
But I hope the youth will eventually find their way back from the shit phones to true creativity.

It will not be every year, he told me.
So I guess every 2 years, let you know for sure

Yeah that was nice, but it was open monuments day, so a lot of visitors don't do our hobby.
I hope my words did good on our young visitors, and bringing my Asterix figures did help a bit :mrgreen:

I could tell the Asterix figs were especially beloved by the younger set. Well done.

It seems like nice place to be. But next year you should treat figures in more humane way:

If figures should be caged, we require some better standards (more cage surface, food, water etc.). Otherwise we'll send you PETA for figures next year :mrgreen:
