I was just wondering if anybody had any plans on going to the toy show and sale on the 9th of February. I've never been. Has anybody ever found anything decent or even gone for that matter?

This is all I could find. Being only 4 dollars to get in I figured I'd go just for the heck of it. Toy Show

I've never heard of that show before. I normally go to the comic show at the coliseum. Lots of toys there.

I didn't end up going. So it was a total waste of time. Was there any vintage stuff at all? Maybe I will just stick with the show at the expo center on the first. I have free tickets

Yeah, it did blow, They had about 15 vintage figures but all were very expensive. Plus I was afraid to even talk to the dealer. When he wasnt in conversation with someone he just talked to himself. Another guy selling some concepts actually tried to haggle with me to pay less! He gave me money back.

Sounds like the guy that was at the show back in October at the expo center. He was trying to sell trashed carded figures for like 300 dollars each. His loose stuff was like 50 bucks a figure. I just had to shake my head and walk away.

So is anybody going to the Collectible show this weekend at the Expo Center. I went back in November when they last had it and thought it was worth it.

Well I ended up going to the Expo Center over the weekend. There were a few dealers that had some nice stuff. Most of it was a little over priced but not to bad. One guy was flat out crazy though. He wanted 300 dollars for a recarded 77 back Ben Kenobi. I ended up getting an Indiana Jones Lunchbox with thermos for 5 bucks. But nothing else.

Re: Another Portland Comic Book Show

i don't collect vintage stuffs, so i'm not sure exactly what such collectors are looking for, but i do know that in past years, there has been more than one table at the comic-con with a fair number of loose vintage figs... i think i maybe even remember scattered buckets of miscellaneous vintage ships, parts, etc. like any of these things, i'm sure it all varies year to year and is hit or miss.

i'll be there on sunday trying to find all the dang current/recent figs that the scalpers horde from retail... and hopefully be buying them from people who mailorder whole cases, rather than these scalping skumbags...
