Whacha Looking For At The Con?

Oh yeah, one more thing, how do I not look like a tourist? Would my ADC shirt make me look like one? What about me in a Dragonball Z shirt? How would we fool them because they know we really are in essence tourists in the fact we are there for a special event and we do not originate there.

@loll@ everyone forcehunter here will be the guy in the DBZ T-shirt,bermuda shorts, panama hat black knee socks w/sandles and a camera around his neck picking up stuff off of the tables going "ahh COOL! i've wanted this for years i'd pay any price for this!!!" ;) ever heard the term "blend in" or "be cool" thats what im talkin about, if you go in thinkin you'll get screwed then you will Good Luck!!

 

btw- on the last day thats when the dealers who's prices were so freakin high on the first 3 days decide to deal, trust me there will be plenty left on that day! if ya have any money left after payin full price for everything!!

 

these were just a few tips i picked up going to flea markets, swap meets, garage sales and conventions over the last 30 odd years...and for me they worked well but for people who have no clue how to be cool they probably wont work??

 

or maybe im stupid and all this doesnt make sense to anyone?? oh well i aint going anyway! so no big deal just thought i would pass it on??

@loll@ how did you know I wear burmuda shorts? @smilepunch@

 

Nah I get your gig, I just wanted a reason to rant. Unfortunately though, I will not be able to wait til the last day as I will have to leave Saturday afternoon. Though I am cool with some of the dealers there and some have given me price breaks before, maybe I'll get lucky again despite it being a con.

 

Hey does anyone want to go toy hunting together? There are alot of figures that I am going to search for and wanted to know if we should form a pack to hunt the local KBs, Targets and TRUs

i figured you for the bermuda short type!! @smilepunch@

 

to bad you wont be there on the last day! at the KC con there was a guy there that had a ton of carded joes from 89-93/4 and on the last day sellin them 2 for $5 just so he didnt have to lug em' back home!! i scored hard that day! and another guy sold me a whole box of filecards for $10.00 i tellin ya the last day was when i really scored, plus i was able to find the swivel arm "orange pads" grand slam that had been eluding me for years for $15.00 as well!!!

 

man i wish i was going to this con!! :(

Spider, I might have a Terrordrome for you. However, I'll warn you, it's been in our sun room for the past couple of years, so it needs a cleaning, and some of the tabs on it have broken. I'll try and look at it on my next day off and review it for you if you like.
