About the genesis of the show - organizer Peter Morris aka artist/customizer Pocket Wookie shares with us: "I'm working with a couple of guys here in Lincoln, Nebraska for a DIY Qee show on October 2nd. Why Lincoln? Well, it's my home town, it's got a lot of great talent and finally (the biggest reason) Toy2R's CEO lives here! I know, it seems insane. I didn't believe it myself, but I tracked him down a few months ago and we started talking about toys. So we've been organizing the show featuring local talent, and he's sent special invitations to other artists for some pieces. It's going to have over 40 artists, a live DJ battle, tons of give-aways (production pieces and customs), food and drinks. We're hoping to have a huge show here in the midwest."
