Beanbags / ds lounge

So I really liked the beanbags in the ds lounge. I searched the forums and it appears they are Sumo brand. Anyone know which model was used?

Also if anyone has tried the other models I'd like some feedback. I've yet to find a good beanbag that I like and I thought the ones at PAX were pretty decent.

    After PAX East, my boyfriend bought the Omni beanbag, which I believe is what was used at the expo


    I haven't tried the other models but I'm sure they're just as comfortable

    I have 2 omnis, and they're awesome!! I love the versatility, and the fabric is pretty much cat-proof :D

    I haven't tried the other models, so I can't really say, but I've heard that they're more like a lovesac in terms of fabric and filling.

    I have 10 omnis. They work pretty well I suppose :P

    After like 4 years of heavy use (parties and such) the filling gets kind of mashed down. Im going to have to refill a couple.

    Thanks for the input!

    I'm inclined to try an Omni, because I liked those at the expo, but the gamer/sultan models look interesting too. I wish there was a storefront to go try them out.

    On a side note, their website sucks. Ohwell, at least they make comfy beanbags :-)

    I heard some rumors that PAX's arrangement with Sumo had ended, and that future cons might not have the iconic bean bag's presence. Any truth to this? I would hate to see it go away!

    Must have been a really recent rumor since they were at Prime.

    I heard they were offered up to the Con gods for prosperity on the PAX event.

    Either shipped back to sumo or put into storage until next PAX.
