    Anyone know of any Orlando-area toy shows happening this summer? I'm thinking I'd like to get a table and unload a large portion of my toy collection that's been gathering dust in the garage. I see TOYLANDO is coming up June 6.

    My partner has been laid up with some rather severe back problems for the past few days, which means I have missed out on local hunting! Thank goodness I've got the Bring On the Bad Guys Marvel Legends pre-ordered or else it'd be a tense week. Which is to say, let's add my name to those knuckleheads hoping to find Major Bludd! If anybody in Orlando scores an extra, please let me know :)

    I think there's at least 2 main groups that promote and put on toy and comic shows locally, and they cross-promote one another, which is a nice gesture. Here's more for the year from the Toylando group, I think.

    You're welcome!
    I try and hit up every local show I can. And when I tell friends about them they always seem surprised that there are smaller local shows.

    So far this year I've hit up shows in Cocoa, Ocala, Jax, Kissimmee, and Deland. There's also shows in Daytona, etc.

    Sorry, this is a rant because after a year into this line, Hasbro has done nothing to fix this and Target neither.. So far Major Bludd has hit every target it seems in Central FL either Sunday or Monday, and so far every one of them was bought up by a scalper it seems. I talked to my friends at Target and they show that their PG is supposed to be set on the 30th for Major Bludd, hope a restock happens. Let's beat these scummy scalpers before Target discontinues this figure in a month(ish).

    I wanted to get a Maj. Bludd because he looks awesome, but this entire line is turning into you can't buy it so I'm starting to not care anymore.

    Also, haven't seen anything on the shelves so nothing to report in JAX.

    Got a ML Modok from Daytona Best Buy... Never thought I'd find one.

    Remember to give your local Best Buy some occasional love. Might surprise you.

    Not that I live close but I wouldve paid you for one to be shipped to me here in Ormond. Hopefully we get restock, glad to see that someone is finding them in the afternoon, maybe there is hope!

    Daytona target has 1x Kingdom UM, only thing of note.
