Another fun toy show...
I probably spent the least ever, at this show, but that doesn't mean the selection was bad. Just that prices were too high for me.
There were tons of new figures though... I saw all the latest Clone Wars and Vintage there, and the prices... hoo boy.
Way out of what I think they'll get for the most part, especially with 90% of those figures returning in 2012 and a movie focus/vintage continuing.
The Clone Wars ones I think are more likely to hold value.
The WHite Boba Fett was the talk of the show... If you want one perfect, I think it's a perfectly viable option to just plunk down the $40 and get it that way. Guys that are getting solid cases of him are getting him minty mint, plus they're having you avoid the form/upc hastle.
If all you want is that proto fett, that makes a lot of sense, ultimately.
I picked up a few loose army builders and a show without me buying ASP7 is like a day without sunshine!
James hooked me up with a sweet WM Rebel Pilot set for cheap.
I think my deal of the day though, was getting Lego mini Bossk for my Bossk collection, and getting him basically for free. That made me happy all weekend long.
By the way... Henry Winkler... INSANELY nice. Guy was late Friday, came out and was shaking hands, and chatting up with everyone who was in line to see him. Sunday he was being just as chatty and friendly with his fans. Maybe the nicest celeb I've ever seen at the show.
The Star Wars celebs seemed really friendly and happy to talk about their experiences as well...
Dominic always puts on a good show, so I was happy to be there again. Looking forward to the next one!
BWW dinner was better this time by the way. Our first experience there, Diane and I weren't impressed, but Friday was pretty good. It was great that James came out too... We really should drag his ass to Primanti's though, at some point.
Though it's not like he's far and doesn't really know about it anyway I suppose, haha.
