    Bleh, I've been to the last three of these but wasn't planning on going since I don't have that much free money. But now I might go since you guys will be there, that'd be cool.

    Hmm, might have to do a quick sale of some things I was considering selling anyway and hope they go before the weekend...

    As was said before, we take trades. To anyone who has gone to this, how was it? Are we wasting our time? I hope we are not the only ones with Transformers, I plan on buying some stuff too....
    Pittsburg members give us a shout!!! Come by to buy, trade, or just laugh at us. Remember to tell us who you are. We love to give discounts to board members.

    I've been to the past three shows, and there have been at about...5 other booths that always have Transformers, but to me it seemed that the amount of TFs had been dwindling a bit, unfortunately. I mean, that didn't stop me from spending almost all my money last time, but still. Toywise there seemed to be more Star Wars than anything else, and there's also a ton of comics. It's certainly not a very big convention, but it's really all we have here for toy shows.

    What are you guys looking for it terms of trades? Anything specific or only G1 or rare stuff or anything? I don't really all the much to trade anyway, and now since I have a graduation party to go to this weekend I don't know if I can make it anyway, but I'll try.

    If you want to PM myself or Gen1Fan with your trade list that would give us an idea. Generally, we are both at that stage in collecting that we are looking for either Boxed stuff or rare stuff. Anything Japanese is a definate but if it's something someone has asked for we will trade to help others out.

    After a four hour setup. The room mainly consists of Star Wars, G.i.Joes, and Transformers all vintage and newer. A lot of good deals from what I could see. I know that we brought a lot of stuff and don't want to take anything home. Anyone in the area make sure you stop by we are in the middle with the Transformers's movie banner. Tell us who you are for a special deal.

    Well part of this community is informing bad things as well as good things. So here goes....

    Don't even bother going to this show. This was the worst show We've ever gone to. Aside from the stuff we brought, there was very little Transformer stuff unless you wanted to pay jacked up prices on the very sparce vintage stuff or if you wanted Movie stuff. It started out ok as we found a few things that sparked our interest but for the most part it was lame. I a trying to describe the dealer room from an attendee point of view. Not much to see. I was able to find some stuff at a small comic shop on the way home so I will have a few new things. The Pennsylvania show sucked major. Not even worth going unless you live VERY VERY close bye.
    Just my two cents

    Well as MegaMus said this was a very lame show. Also unless your going to be in the pittsburgh area for another reason I would not waste my time going to the show. The few other dealers that had transformers wanted top dollar for broken or not complete items. If your also into G.I.JOE, Starwars, card games/ card sets, old hotwheels cars, etc then you may have a some fun at this show. As I was able to pick up some parts for the joe collection very cheap. Like Ace helments 4 of them for $5.00 for the lot off 1 dealer another dealer had a bin of joe stuff 50 cent each, I pick thought it, put adie about 25 items or so and Got it all for $5.00 dollars.

    we pittsburgh area transformer fans looking for things should just set something up for ourselves so we don't have to deal with PISA parking and other ridiculousness that has come from the move of the steel city con
