    Attending is no big deal at all. Line up outside a little before start time, pay the admission and enter. Standard shows are usually dealers displaying their merchadise on long buffet style tables. This show is going to be a mixed bag of dealers so you are going to see anything from antique toys all the way up to modern action figures and everything in between. They are lots of fun, because it is just toys toys toys. There is absolutely nothing to worry about, be intimidated by or fearful of. My name is Jerry and I will be set up with my girlfriend Maria. We bring lots of vintage Transformers, 80s G.I. Joe and lots and lots of other 80s toys. We love meeting other collectors of toys and I think you will find that pretty much all of the other attendees and dealers are also toy fanatics. It is a great way to spend the day. Hope to see you there.

    Yeah dude, toy shows kick ass. You'll find deals there that you can't get find on eBay. Also practically everybody haggles there; or you can bring toys with you and trade them. I recommend carrying around a manifesto of your inventory to present to people, because a piece of paper fits in your pocket easier than a crate of minicons would.

    Hm, I might have to come down for this one. It'll be nice since Last Century hasn't had a show in a while.

    Hmmm...well, it's only an hour away from where I live so I might show up just one thing....do people sell/trade Marvel Legends there because I have a bunch that I feel like getting rid of?

    This blows, figures that there'd be a toy convention when I have a limited amount of spending money, stupid economy

    I'm planning on making the trip too. We should put a list together of people going and a TFW meeting place. I've never met another collector from this board so I would be interested in meeting some peeps.

    Is it true that I can bring some figs/parts to this show and try to sell them to those displaying?

    The only thing I'm absolutely looking to purchase is Armada Megatron (just got Tidal Wave), and possibly G1 Ravage so I can put his rockets on the new Ravage that comes with hound.

    Nothing other than it is listed on their site. I plan on attending that one due to it being only 20 minutes from my house.
