    This was the first year I didn't do any parts trading, but that's probably because I didn't bother to bring any. I thought the bulletin board is a great idea however.

    yes

    you should have stopped thru anyway, just to meet people or to find something, not in the dealer room. that's how i got my binaltech 03 streak, and lots of fort max parts (right megamus!!!) plus we had free beer.---battlestarbase

    Beer? There was free beer? How come I didn't see any of that floating around Friday night? Had I known that, I'd have simply given you that silver-painted Prime you wanted for parts :)

    prime

    sorry about that. i'll be a better host next year. funny story about that prime.i got him from you for 4 bucks. had him on display on my table next to the computer. not a half hour later, the guy in the pin-stripe suit, with the big autobot symbol on the back , begs me to sell it to him for 20.00. so i did.

    Geez. Just goes to show that I need to sell my parts and junkers for more money. :) 

    I was hoping to get $3 or $4 for figures like that "junker" Prime, and I couldn't sell but that one and a couple others.

    better

    i kind of like this way better. first of all i don't have to haul all my stuff to another location. i can watch tv and drink beer and trade parts at the same time. i can shut down whenever i want. or i can stay open all night. sure you'll miss the casual lookers. but for me anyways, 95% of the people who came to my room were serious parts traders. who needs sleep, this is a transformers convention. ---battlestarbase
