"Attached are some of the items I’m going to stuff into a HTF bag for the charity auction. Many of these items will be signed (like the storyboards), and some of them are extremely rare or even one of a kind. I’m trying to get Kenn Navarro to draw an original sketch to include in the package, maybe a HTF character enjoying a dinosaur steak!"

Thanks to AOD2013 Guest of Honor Ken Pontac for donating these items for the AOD Charity Auction!

Sonic Fan Pack – Value: Rare (Normal Value - $30-60)
