This spring I'm going to a comic book store event near me where Billy West will be signing. I'm so excited!  big grin

Has anyone been to a signing of his and can tell me what to expect? I've heard he charges money and donates it to charity, which is cool with me. Any idea how much?

Do you think he would sign one (or two?) Toynami Fry action figures? I'd die of glee if I could have that on my shelf.  eek

Pro Tip: Don't go to his signing and save money to someone else's signing.

Better tip: Ignore homerjay. She's sore because of the restraining order he had to put on her.

I'm unaware of the politics and friendships of this forum. Can someone explain to me what just happened? tongue

Was I the only person who read the title as singing instead of signing?

Homerjay has had several cease-and-desist letters from Billy West's lawyers. She can explain it better than anybody else. Or would be able to if she wasn't legally forbidden to talk about it.

Also, she's probably got Down's Syndrome, and could be bested in a contest of wits by a rock. A really dumb rock.

Just ignore her, and go see Willy Best.

I am not sure how much of that is true, but I will take your word for it that I should ignore her.

You know, I still haven't gotten an answer to my question... Helloes?

It's a long going "argument" between regular posters (and there are many of them).  For your sake, I would just say to ignore it.  But if you were really, really bored, I would figure there might be some info on the PEEL wiki somewhere about such things.

You know, I'm going to just let it go. smile I have an eBay shop to man, at the very least, and Amazon MTurking to do. 10 cents per minute is better than 0 cents per minute if I'm *that* bored. wink

Thanks, Free Hot Meal. smile

It's actually not that at all.  And for the record, no one can explain it, the End.

Does anyone have an answer for my original question? Someone on this board must have been to a Billy West signing, right?

I'm sure if you're nice about it he'll sign one. I've not personally met Billy, but I've met stars before willing to sign pretty much what I threw at them. Just be sure to have a paint marker and not a Sharpie. The ink might rub off. And don't get too greedy about it. They're happy to sign things, but they don't want fifty things shoved at them. That's what the rest of the line is for.

Thank you! smile The last time I had something signed was in seventh grade at a convention. I'm 20 now, so, you know, it's been awhile. big grin What's a paint marker? That seems like a vital piece of information that you just told me. Thanks again!

EDIT: I suppose I mean what kind of paint marker is best? I can guess what they are, but there are different varieties of every sort of thing. smile Thanks!

I don't have an exact answer for "what paint marker is best", but I do know you want a marker that does not smear and is thick enough in order to get a good signature (but not too thick)...use your judgment when selecting one and then try it out on scratch paper (or something) before you set off to get things signed.  I had a basketball signed by the Purdue Men's basketball team last year and that is what I did...things turned out well.  I have seen it on eBay for hundreds of dollars...though I have no intention of selling it.

If you're getting something dark signed, silver marker pens are good. If it's light coloured, get an oldskool permenant marker (again, not a sharpie), a good thick black one. Not a "no xylene" one.

I'll message you to as not to publicize my state on the interwebz. :3

Cool! Thanks! I'm getting a Toynami Encore Fry signed. I'll probably pick the one I'm going to open and just test the marker right on that box. Then I'll know it'll work on the mint box. smile

It's going to be the front of a Toynami box. How do I tell if it's no xylene? Do they advertise this as a positive feature and I should avoid those?

Thanks for being so helpful, y'all. smile

They usually say "NO XYLENE" somewhere on them if they don't contain it. Since Xylene is a benzene derivative, it's considered a positive thing, but it also makes the permenent marker... less permenent.

No problem. I'm happy to answer any question that involves benzene derivatives, seeing as how they all tend to smell like rainbows, and happy.
