    I dont see what the problem is. I enjoy the Zolo shows; if you don't want to go, than don't. Why spend your time bashing the convention? If it's not for you than so be it. If it is, than awesome - I'll see you there.

    Hello again my friends,

    This is going to be a different event than any we have held before. The convention will be a complete Retro EXPO. This is a pay event, which means a larger budget and Ridiculous show raffles. If you collect retro 80's action figure toys, you want to be here. BTW. This is ONE of our new locations and dates. We are no longer doing conventions at the marketplace.

    I appreciate all the feedback good and bad so please let us know what makes an enjoyable experience for you. Our shows are constantly being tweaked and believe be, we are listening to your feedback. The only thing we ask is please keep it clean :) 

    Now with our finalized press release.

    What's with all the hate? I'm not familiar with any of this. It's right near me so I'd need a good reason not to go... other than it's the same weekend as Anime Next.

    I know this show is more for vintage 70's - 80's toys, but is anybody bringing with them transformer statues or busts to sell? Been looking for the Hard Hero, Diamond Select and Palisades ones if anybody has them.
