I'm going on sunday. Can't wait. It'll be my 3th signing event. I went to David Pacheco in 1999, to Kent Melton in 2004 and now Ruben.

Hi Koen-Have a great time at the Signing Event. You'll enjoy meeting Ruben. Be sure to give us an update when you return!

Wish these posters/postcards were available to everyone. What a nice job WDCC did on this promo.

I went to collectors company this sunday. it was great. I didn't win any prize, but still a great event :-).
I gave Ruben a list of pieces i wanted to see and especially asked about a John Smith and a Matchmaker piece. He told there would be a meeting when he returned and he would bring my list to it, so they can discuss my ideas. Hopefully one will be made. I asked Ruben if he would be doing a complete scene, since up till now there weren't any complete scenes from him. He told me to be patient, cause there will be a 3-piece scene comming done by him. He wouldn't give anymore hints though. I brought my Genie to sign and bought Ursula VS allthough i wasn't getting it at first. In the end Ruben made a great drawing of Sebastian for me. Great event and i hope there will be more events like this.

Hi Koen! Thanks for sharing your experience from the Signing Event with Ruben you attended this past weekend.

Glad you had the opportunity to talk with him and share some ideas/suggestions for future releases. I'm guessing they're starting to work on the 2009 line-up.

Look forward to seeing his scene release for 2008. Until your posting, tend to forget his releases thus far have been stand-alones or add-ons to existing scenes (The Incredibles).

Congrats on your purchase of Ursula!

I have met Ruben in Rotterdam at the Collectors Company. After trying to draw Mickey Mouse I have won a drawing of Ruben himself. I am so pleased to have an original drawing of Ruben!
