      ATTENTION L.A. FAULTS AND FIBONACCI DIVISION!

      Could I have a head count of how many people are going to attend Comikaze at the end of this month? I’d like to organize a bit of street theater in front of the Convention Center and I’m wondering if anyone would be interested. How about a little bit of song and dance to the tune of Back and Forth recorded by our fearless leader, Doctor Steel?

      I live only three miles from Knott’s Scary Farm, and if anyone would like to carpool with me you you could leave your vehicles at my home in Anaheim. I live on a limited income, so if someone could throw a few dollars toward me for admission, I’d appreciate it.

      Have an interesting idea for Comikaze in Los Angeles: with all the media attention attracted by the convention, has anyone thought of staging an event in front of the convention center?

      What about having all the Toy Soldiers who can attend the convention showing up in front of the main hall on a Saturday afternoon and performing some improvised street theater to the tune of Back and Forth by Doctor Steel?

      We could perform other routines to his music as well as assorted bits of street theater, and while we have the attention of those in attendance we can hand out leaflets, badges, stickers, and anything else appropriate to the cause.

      What do you think of this idea?

      JUST A REMINDER: It’s been four weeks since I’ve applied to S.A.M. but have yet to receive confirmation of my membership. :(

      Ok S.A.M. Here is my challenge to you. Come up with a magic trick that can also Introduce T.S.U. Here one I already have in the workd but I wont count it to be honest. Its a simple colorchange bunt instead of one card turning into another card, the card changes into the Toy Soilder sticker =)Ill post a quick video soon to show it. Just the video might not have sound. My mics not working =) *Salutes*

      I was thinking of a gimmick playing card that would have the back of a standard Rider deck, but the face would be of their chosen card with the Toy Soldiers’ logo and web address.

      The magician would use a standard card force to make the spectator pick the right card, then while cutting the cards introduce the gimmick card into the deck. The gimmick card would be controlled through a series of false shuffles, then finally placed on top of the deck. The cool part of the trick is that after the presentation is over, the spectator gets to keep the special card as a souvenir.

      The gimmick playing card would be simple to make: one would simply go to Staples or another printer and have a hundred copies of the gimmick card printed for distribution.

      Greetings! I might very well be one of the older fans to join this division, as I recently turned 53 years old. I’m a dedicated fan of science fiction, fantasy, anime and horror, and have been involved with science fiction conventions since 1979. I may be a crusty old curmudgeon in the flesh, but I’ll always be young at heart.

      Hail Cthulhu!

      I offer my humble services as a toy soldier to the #1890 His Pedalogical Lovecraftians.

      My first exposure to the works of H.P. Lovecraft was at ten years old, which I believe has since warped and twisted my brain to the point where I can perceive non-euclidean dimensions of horror otherwise denied to ordinary men. I later became fascinated with H.P. Lovecraft and his fiction, and over the years have become something of a scholar in this rather peculiar field of expertise.

      On rare occasions this provides me with financial compensation: I have written a few articles for fan magazines and in 1990 published a scenario through Chaosium entitled “The Lurker in the Crypt” which was featured in their adventure book, Fatal Experiments.

      Later this year I will have a campaign book published by Chaosium entitled Dark Alliances which features a series of linked adventures taking place in California during the 1920’s. Let the madness begin!

      Greetings fellow Toy Soldiers!

      I offer myself for membership in the #462 S.A.M. as a steampunk magician, specializing in Victorian stage and platform magic. My preferred effects include the miser’s dream, the cups and balls, the Chinese linking rings (my favorite) and the production of various and sundry items from an otherwise empty hat.

      To quote from the late Cass Elliot: “Dream a little dream with me.”

      Greetings from the Wastelands of Orange County!

      Are there any plans for an event or invasion at Anime Expo this year? I’m planning to attend this convention as well as Comikaze Expo in November.
      As a new member of the 101st Division, I would like to offer my place of residence as a gathering place for members who would like to leave their cars in a central location and carpool to places like Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm, and other locations Behind the Orange Curtain.

      I live in a fairly quiet residential neighborhood with a very low crime rate, so you won’t have to worry about your vehicles.

      I was introduced to the music of the Good Doctor through Facebook, and upon watching the episodes of his show on YouTube decided to check out the Toy Soldiers online.

      Greetings, fellow soldiers!

      My name is Doctor Clockwork, and I’m probably the only Toy Soldier located behind the Orange Curtain–better known as Orange County, California.
      My interests include anime, obscure comic books, science fiction, fantasy, roleplaying games, and horror. I’m a professional stage magician, and having developed a recent interest in steampunk am going to combine the two by performing Victorian stage and platform magic.

      Be prepared for all manner of steampunk weirdness and missions from beyond the fringe!
