FIGZ 2023

Posted by MABO on 05 Jun 2023, 21:05

Hello folks,

FIGZ 2023 is history. It was really great and here you can see some pics from the show.

Image

Like every year Arnhem was the heart of the figures world on the first Sunday in June!

Image

Like every year Remco did a great job and calling the collectors from near and far, even from Bonn.

Image

550 more or less Romans were attracting the visitors on the FIGZ tables.

Image

Maybe some new members comitted themself to the forum.

And we had a special presentation. Jaques from Rio de Janeiro has send some of his figures to me, just before covid. So it took me some time to present them, but finally they got a cool place near the entrance.

Image

Image

All the visitors got a lot to see.

Image

For example the traders:

Like every year Martin - the second member in the forum - was there with his shop

Image

Image

Image

Not even Old Wolfs could resist...

Image

Tabletopper
Jan Frankema

Image

Image

CCG Winkel
Omnibelli

And once more Hagen Miniatures:

Image

Image

Image

And of course the delicious and healthy Dutch food.

Image

Fortunately most of the visitors are over 18 years old.

Image

Image

The Bring and Show section was worth a visit like every year

In the end he needed some tactical hints from Remco

Image

It was nice to talk to people interested in the cool and easy to learn tabletop game.

Image

On the stage, Dirk gives a workshop on how to build a simple brick wall with a gate.

Image

Image

In the end Martin celebrated his annual Competition. Thanks for that!

Image

Image

Peter was not sure, if he should take part...
but he did in the end.

Image

And he was the great winner with one first and one second price. Applause!!

Image

Image

Image

Image

And there was also this great entry, winning the other gold medall! Sorry, I did not know your name, but you are a real artist!

Image

Image

The other silver medal was for this single figure.

Image

After the ceremony, Peter offers vlaai like every year. Thanks again, it was delicious

Image

What else?
Benno will produce the ultimate FIGZ movie!

Image

And the cool photos will be presented by other people. Stay tuned! ;-)

It was great again and we are looking forward to next year. Thanks to all who made it possible.
Mr.Andrea mentioned a FIGZ every three months

Yes, it was once again the highlight of the year for all members of the forum.
Actually, everything has already been said and I can only agree, it was a very nice day with friends.
For those who live far away and can't come, let me tell you that we thought of you.
