Patrick Lam, you are the man. The real-deal toy dudes gather annually at Basic Bar in the Gaslamp  District for pizza, booze & toy talk courtesy of Lam’s rad toy store, Munky King.

Basic bar / Munky King Party in full swing

This year, Jim Crawford of ClutterMag presented the nominees for the Designer Toy Awards (DTA) on behalf of Josh, Miranda, Pixie and the rest of ‘em to kick off the evening.

Woebotz live painting at Munky King Party is always a treat.

A great addition to the event was MakerBot 3D printing Ron English toys (and more!) live in the bar.

I’d be totally lying if if I said merriment wasn’t had by all, because it was a super joyous occasion. The Munky King party at San Diego Comic Con is a social highlight of the weekend and sets the mood for the rest of the madness. Check all the goofball photos Dan took below & we’ll hit you back here tomorrow.
