    Possibly if I have some extra cash since that's right before we go to Disney World for Botcon.

    I will be there at least one of those days. Most likely the 12th since that is the costume contest. Bought a fair number of Tformers there last year. But be careful, some dealers try to overcharge, so do not just jump on something the first time you see it, because another dealer might have a better deal somewhere else!

    Wish I could setup a table at Wizard World. But's it's too expensive. About a $1,000 just for a table. :(

    To be expected at the bigger Cons man, sucks to, because I would totally hit your table right away. Hope to catch you there anyway.

    I would like to set up at this but a single 10 X 10 spot is 895. I have several dealer friends who get multiple spots and have told me when they call they get the price bumped down quite a bit. So if anyone is thinking about setting up at this let us know because we might be able to get a reduced rate.

    How much are you looking at if we get multiple spots? I really don't want to set up at Wizard World just to break even. I'm sure we all don't. :lol

    Well we know a dealer that got 2 spots last year and he said he got them down to 1200 something last year. So if we were around 600 to 700 per man I think it would be doable, that would be $200 or so per day. He said he did over $6K last year and his prices are a little high. I guess it boils down to how much merch you have. I mean you have to think in order to do a few thousand, you probably have to have 3 times as much merchandise.

    I'd think about going for a day trip if the dealer room is worth hitting up.

    Too hang out with the Philly crew? Hell yeah!!!!! :rock  I went last year and had a good time. Sold some stuff, grabbed a Huntress figure and Revoltech Fraulein Pocco figure too. Just purchase your ticket online, at the door it's actually $5.00 more.

    I really don't have that much merchandise to make this worth my wild. Makes me kind of wish I had my own store. I would definitely do this if I was blowing out my entire collection.

    Totally understandable Lio, I can not afford those kind of set up costs either which is why I was looking for multiple people to try and get a discount.

    If any thing I hope to see you there. It's always a good time. Plus I plan go grab some cheesesteak at the Reading Terminal Market. :D  Here's a few pictures from last year.

    Last year I was MP Megatron...I bought a whole bunch of transformers there last year, found some good deals. Take your time looking around, you may see something cheaper at different booths.
