I regularly attend the scifi expo in Plano. I attended the last customer appreciation day about 3 months ago. They have the free show in their smaller conference hall, which holds approximately 20-25 vendors. It is not real big, but there will probably some good deals to be found. I would attend it if you are in the area, as you never know what you may find.
Sounds good.. I think I will go, it been far too long since i have
Welcome Dingodad -- In answer to your question -- I went to the Sci Fi Expo last month with Jango Fett and Darth Maul -- it was great. Read the tread under conventions and I tell a little about my experience there.
Others -- here are my updates from the weekend:
Target @ 635 and Centerville -- Nothing -- figures are $4.99.
Target on NW HWY near 75 Central -- Found ONE new NEXU -- he is cool, makes sounds on his tummy. You can open his jaws and press his tounge and he makes a battle sound then snaps his jaws shut (did not open -- that is just what it says).
TRU near Town East Mall -- Exclusive Mace Windu 12" figure.
Target across the street -- Nothing.
KBtoys near the Best Buy across from Town East Mall -- Found my Mace Windu on Sunday. Found out that they put out their shipments on Saturday morning -- They has put out the Chewbacca wave (heads up ADAM) but they were all out by Sunday 12:00. This might be a good location to work with. The Manager said that he put all the new figures tothe back of the pegs so SCALPERS wouldn't have a chance to hord them all.
The Walmart in Rockwall, Greenville, and the one off I-30 and Beltline dont have anything. The one in Rockwall is controlled by a Scalper -- I have delt with this little SOB before, JERK!!
Other than that -- I only made it home with a NEXU and a Mace -- so much for my weekend :(
Hope you all had a better weekend.
BTW -- Maybe we can get a group of us to meet at the Customer Appreciation Day in Plano on the 30th. This would be a great place to hang out for a bit -- any ideas ???
Hey, sounds like a good idea.
My wife and I are up for some sort of meeting at the June 30th scifi expo. It would be nice to put faces with all of the names.
Sweet -- we can set a time and a meeting place later in the week. ALSO -- I CALL FIRST DIBS ON ALL NEW TOYS !!! -- HAHAHA
My wife and I would absolutly be in for a meeting at the Plano show.
I think there will plenty to go around JB :crazed:
Very true Adam -- I think meeting would be a great idea. Lets set something up in a couple of weeks..
Is there any older merchandise that anyone is looking for so maybe we can set up some swaps there? I usually have a table at the shows but I didnt get one this time. Chances are that you guys have probably bought stuff from me in the past there.
