We_made_our_guesses_now_make_yours-guess_who_will_win_designer_toy_awards_and_win_some_prizes-trampt-921m

So there's about 5 weeks until NYCC is upon us, and I'm looking forward to hanging out with some old friends and finally meeting some online friends in person at the Designer Toy Awards being hosted by the master of suck The Sucklord. The public voting has wrapped up and the DTA board are voting on their picks for the remaining categories. I thought I would make it interesting by making some guesses on who I think will win in each category. Like one of those oscar parties, except there will be prizes and no one will care what everyone is wearing.

So here are some prizes that the winner will be getting:

  • Gay Empire Overmaster Supreme - Leather Daddy by Sucklord (possibly signed header)
  • 7" Munny signed by as many artists as I can at the party
  • Trampt T-shirt
  • Trampt Hat (Special One-Off Color)
  • Trampt /Short Army Sticker Packs

So post your guesses below, and whoever guess the most categories correctly will win. There will probably be some other prizes for those that participate, and I'll definitely have some stuff to giveaway at the event.

Publicly Voted Categories

Board Voted Categories

My picks aren't necessarily who I think should win, but who I think will win ... but there is definitely some overlap. Good luck to everyone playing and those nominated ... guesses will close on October 10th. In the event of a tie whoever posted their guesses first will win.

Spankystokes-trampt-345f

spankystokes v This is honestly the first time I have heard this... and it's very concerning. How is my site convoluted and unapproachable? I obviously am not doing something right for you to think this way, and want to fix it, or at least address the issue. Thanks so much. ~ Spanky almost 5 years ago

Keegan-trampt-1698f

keegan a of course most peeps are going to be biased towards Trampt for Best Blog, but I have to say I don't think Spankystokes isn't unapproachable at all. Do you just think there is too much stuff in the sidebars? almost 5 years ago

Grimmshepard-trampt-1029f

GrimmShepard v I don't mean to be insulting, I actually feel the same way about Facebook and don't use it at all. I'm kind of an old soul when it comes to the internet, and I guess what I love about trampt so much is way I'm blasted with content from the site in the form of photos constantly. almost 5 years ago

Grimmshepard-trampt-1029f

GrimmShepard v while the side margins feel very small and light on advertising.also the free toy giveaways are awesome and still winnable with a relatively medium sized blog community almost 5 years ago

Spankystokes-trampt-345f

spankystokes v I was not insulted at all, and really take opportunities like this to figure out what I can do better to suite the community. The fellas over at Trampt have really done a fantastic job building their site from the ground up... and I wish I had the skills/knowhow to do so. I have done my best with the blogger platform, with what I know, and am limited to the capabilities that a site such as Trampt can do. almost 5 years ago

Spankystokes-trampt-345f

spankystokes v That is why SS.com is just a Blog, and that's it... not a marketplace, not a library, a place you can go on a daily basis (hourly basis actually) and get news about the designer toy world. I think That being said, I understand where you come from now, and maybe SS.com would be be suited by you to be read in an RSS feed... pictures galore :-) almost 5 years ago

Spankystokes-trampt-345f

spankystokes v Also, most people don't really use this function on SS.com, but in the top right column, under the header 'Find A Post Fast', click on it with your mouse once, and then start typing what you are looking for... most of the time it will pop up and show you all the posts that have that search term... very useful if you are looking for artists, events, materials, companies. almost 5 years ago

Spankystokes-trampt-345f

spankystokes v I did not mean to hijack this thread by any means, just wanted to see what I could do to help my situation and better yours. almost 5 years ago

Keegan-trampt-1698f

keegan a I never noticed that 'Find a post fast' feature until you posted this. It's a much easier way to find a specific post about an artist quickly since that google search can be hit or miss. :) almost 5 years ago

Keegan-trampt-1698f

keegan a I am very skeptical that we won best blog, though I did hear from many members that they voted for us everyday. So maybe a small group of people who voted everyday will beat the bigger blogs who had many people only vote a few times. :) almost 5 years ago

Keegan-trampt-1698f

keegan a I don't think we're a blog at all, which is why they should change the titled. Especially if it's supposed to cover podcasts & other stuff. I think 'Best Coverage' or something would be better suited. Also, I know I won't win collection ... though if i had a spare 2-3 million to spend on mine it would definitely rival Selim. :) almost 5 years ago

Easily_amused-trampt-2928f

Easily_Amused I think best Coverage is a great title. What sucks about the best collection is that they class all colectors together. Maybe have two categories, one for people who build awesome collections on a regular salaries, and another for the people with a few million to spare. When I saw his collection, it kind of struck me as cheating. almost 5 years ago

Grimmshepard-trampt-1029f

GrimmShepard v That Trampt "isn't really a blog" is one of the things that I love so much about it over some of the others in that voting category. Rather than being more opinion and news oriented, the focus on trampt leans more towards collection and community. While Trampt always keeps me up to date on the latest news, 90% of what I do on the site is look at old toys which I love to do. almost 5 years ago

Easily_amused-trampt-2928f

Easily_Amused LOL! I like to keep it up so I can check out my collection while dreaming about one day having it all properly displayed and framed. almost 5 years ago

Keegan-trampt-1698f

keegan a I honestly keep looking at my prints to figure out what i have still sitting around in tubes. :) almost 5 years ago

Mileszustand-trampt-200f

mileszustand m i'm still a little pissed how the finalists for best toy store have been chosen!
9 x US
1 x DE aka selim varol's store
there are so much good stores out there in the world which i am sure fulfill the criterias way more than most of the 9 US stores that where chosen! almost 5 years ago

Keegan-trampt-1698f

keegan a It did seem pretty random almost 5 years ago

Mileszustand-trampt-200f

mileszustand m This category honors a brick-and-mortar (physical store) retailer that specializes in Designer Toys and has distinguished itself with outstanding activity during the eligibility period. Nominees will be judged on how knowledgeability, the range and selection of products offered, the overall store appearance and presentation, and any special events and/or shows the location hosted. almost 5 years ago

Mileszustand-trampt-200f

mileszustand m i mean really!!! who checked those criterias for all contestants? to me the finalists list is pretty biased at the least! almost 5 years ago

Keegan-trampt-1698f

keegan a Honestly they probably were never nominated. The DTA's didn't go out and actively look for the best. They waited for submissions and then picked some from those submitted. Did you submit shops that we're included? almost 5 years ago

Mileszustand-trampt-200f

mileszustand m i know for a fact that the sixxa store vienna was nominated and also a bunch of other NON-US stores, but i don't remember which ones. i think i remember that artoyz (paris) and playlounge (london) has been nominated and i think i saw toitoy (cape town) also on the list. almost 5 years ago

Keegan-trampt-1698f

keegan a then that's a shame almost 5 years ago

Mileszustand-trampt-200f

mileszustand m also i think it should also be factored in that it's harder for NON-US stores to get artists like baseman, ledbetter, mcpherson to come to events outside of the US. lilo pulled it off anyways!
for all the above mentioned criterias i think i could name 2 examples each from the top of my head for the eligibility period where the sixxa store vienna exceeds all of the finalists. almost 5 years ago

keegan a You're preaching to the choir ... I know Lilo does a standup job at Sixxa. definitely should have made the cut. almost 5 years ago
