I thought the wider gaps between stalls were a welcome addition.
There didn't seem to be many big dealers there but saying that I was pleased with what I got.
Managed to get all the figures I needed to finish POTJ for 5 or less, most for 3-4.
Picked up the three anniversary 2 packs for 8 pound each.
Also found a replacement Darth Vader lightsaber, worth every one of the 3000 pennies I paid for it.

As general interest R2Dtoys had the gunship for 49 and had the new xmas R2/3PO set for 20, which I thought was pretty reasonable.

Best price on Star Toys stuff was 12 a figure. Don't think I'm gonna bother with them though.

Thanks for the report - glad to know you found some bargains. I love the whole thing of going round spotting what you want and then checking prices all around. At Expo this year I was looking for Watto but he was, like, 8! Two stalls later i got him, Ric Olie, Flashback Artoo and Leia - bundled in a bag for a fiver. Laugh!

Me and my girlfriend went. It was brill, we'd never been before.
I wasn't really looking for SW stuff yesterday, we were hunting down some of the wants on our Simpsons list and we did great - got some real bargains.
It was great to see the people in costumes, and have a close look at some props and replicas (including Master Replicas). There realy was some great stuff on offer, and some of it pretty cheap too.
I'm glad R2Dtoys had a gunship set up, I hadn't seen one in person before. I though it looked crap, but it was nice to see it in person. The new landspeeder looks great.

All in all, a fab day. And i'd recommend the Early Bird tickets to anyone - we got nearly all of our stuff within the first hour.

I went on Saturday and was very pleased. I didn't really know what I wanted this time round but I soon snapped up some bargains. I finally got a Bo'marr Monk for a reasonable price and put my haggling skills into good effect. R2Dtoys had a good stall and the bloke was very helpful.

I spoke to the lady from redpumkin who told me that they will be revamping their website in the new year to concentrate on selling that way. Their prices were good so they will certainly be one to watch.

The funniest thing was the American wrestlers that are now just fat, mulleted old men : )

Already started a fund for April - Just after my birthday so I'll have to really treat myself.
