    I have tried to research this but someone who has gone before can help me out. Just how much transformer stuff will be there. I am not talking about sweat shirts and other crap, I'm talking about G1 stuff and hopefully japanese stuff.

    The dealer room can be hit and miss. You may run across 1 or 2 figures, you may find a dozen. The past few years I have seen a handful of items here and there. It really is hard to say because it all pends on what dealers go, and what dealers bring. There was a Transformer dealer at a con called Screaming Tiki con last year that had all sorts of Takara Reissues, lots of Japanese figures, exclusesives and stuff like that. I would like to see him come to a show like this, then again I spent a lot at his table at Tiki hahaha! But seriously, I would say with a Transformer guest being there, the dealers would try to bring something transformer related.

    I have thought about bring some of my vintage Star Wars figures to get rid of. I know at Botcon, they do not care if you walk in with a box o stuff to unload. Do they care there or do you know? Is there anything vintage Star wars you are looking for?

    As far as selling at this place, are you aiming to sell in the dealer room? If so, I am sure you have to be in contact with them about getting a spot in there. Otherwise, um...I suppose you could sit against a random wall with a sign...I think...honestly I don't know what the policy is with selling outside the dealer room, unfortunately!

    As far as stuff I am looking for... I really haven't looked much into a lot of Vintage figures, and I don't know why. Probably because trying to attain them is just so freaking rediculous expensive to do! Vintage stuff, is worth more to me at this point, still packaged up, being most of the figures nowadays have more articulation and look a lil more like them. While I am a collector, I can be very selective with some stuff.

    I was not gonna setup, I was just curious if they looked down on me bringing some stuff to trade with the dealers. Give me a pm with what vintage stuff your looking for. I have a pretty good collection that I am looking to sell.

    Damn, I wanna go. Very little cash flow right now though, and I don't know anyone who currently lives there. Gonna have to talk it over with the misses. See if I can talk her into it.

    The Mrs. and I will be there Saturday afternoon, unless my job interview goes good that morning, and they want me to start that day.

    ATM, I'm planning on dressing as Spike Witwickey.

    I saw ya, but odds are, you didn't see/recognize me. I was wandering around as a Biker Scout and in my Ghostbuster with Slimer on the pack.
