Discussion in 'Transformers Conventions and Get Togethers' started by Revolution, Jun 22, 2008.
It was a Great Convention TFW2005.
I must get that Lil Formers lithograph.
Nice hauls so far. So just how big is the dealer room their. Lotsa people selling TF wares?
I hauled nothing but the Black and white program
I thought it was pretty big (nothing really to compare though). One whole wall of the room was dedicated to a G1 dealer who had 5 Fortmaxes, 6 trypticons, 5 shockwaves, 4 scorponoks etc ,etc. You had some online dealers (A3U, kooltoyz.ca, reprolabels.com) and comic artists Milne, Moylan, Espen. Anyways here is my haul:
Since I had a deal for Unicron and a Shockwave bust. I planned to go after Henkei. I had no success I was 4th in line for the dealer room and it seemed no one had any or had 1 or 2 and sold them by the time I got over there (I went straight the people in front of me went left). I did see a Henkei Bumblebee for $30 later but I figured I'd be better off going the pile of loot route via BBTS. So I decided to track down Alternators.
Enough babbling on to the haul!

Here's my TFcon 2008 haul minus a few RID and Armada stuff I got from soundwave.ca. My 'best overall haul item' award goes to the Kronoform Wargon/Terminators I got for $25 (!!) and my 'best item period' award actually goes to 3 items: The pre-tf Takara versions of the Omnibots...mint and unused in mint boxes! (I love pre-tfs!!).
I've been looking at everyones haul and for the most part I thought, not bad, great stuff but nothing that made me think "Man, I wish I would have gone" until now... Not 1 or 2 but all 3 Omnibots MIB!
Super sweet haul, I tip my hat to you!!!!
I was desperately looking for that in the dealer room. Turns out you had it. Gragh! Oh Well. Besides searching for Classics Megatron and Skywarp, I hauled a nice Telemocha Waspinator. And my brother got a Lil'formers print. I was also frantically searching for Waspinator, and the Kool Toyz store got one in like, a minute before I left. Hooray for restocking.
Yeah I was talking to chans formers (cybertron.ca) while in line and I mentioned that I was looking for it. One of the staff overheard me and said : "i've only seen one". I think I was 4th in line, I had my friend go left into the dealer room (as did the other 3 people in front of me) I went straight and there it was at the booth next to Ages Three & Up for $50 I snagged it . I know what you mean about Kooltoyz it looked like everybody was wiped out of Henkei by the time I got over there, so I decied to look for Alternators and when I swung by the table later there is a Henkei out after I spent my money .
Oh well BBTS still has them in stock so I'll get them in a few weeks. The bad news is I thought I was done collecting Alts and now only being 11 away from the set I think I'm going to try and finish it. I have most of the ones that are rare except for Decepticharge and Swerve so I'm in good shape.
I agree with Megamus on the purchase of the 3 Omnibots at the same time! A fantastic find and great addition to a collection- enjoy them!
Amazing haul man. Love the Star Convoy and the Omnibots.
