I'm going, but i'm not expecting a great showing of toys. This con has diversified itself so much that toys are the last thing people are selling. You'de have more luck finding a bootlegged copy of some 80s' tv series than you would any vintage toys. @grumpy@

Went to the show today. Major dissapointment. It was in a new, bigger hall yet it felt way more crowded than in the past. Took a ten minute walk through the maze that is the toronto convention centre, 2 hours in line to buy tickets, and 45 minutes in line to get in, comic book area, 2 isles, toys and assorted stuff about 1-2 isles, manga 3 isles, horror con about a third of the freakin hall, video game areas scattered everywhere, one entire room the size of a movie theatre dedicated solely to those freakin card games kids play, famous people all along the outside perimeter of the hall, lines for autographs for these people twisted all throughout the isle, which were tight enough to begin with, just utter chaos. Most of the dealers were selling overpriced garbage. To top it off i had to go back through the ten minute maze just to have a quick smoke, then i was told that i had to re-lineup for another 45 minutes to get back in the hall even though they were handstamping everyone. What a waste.......and it only cost me a $20 admission. ARGHHHH!!!!!

Sal;

 

Gotta agree with you man on a lot of points. I didn't get that bad of line ups cause I got there about 10 but they need to stop this ridiculous line up to get in. It literally went from the main entrance, around the escalator, and then THREE LANES in that big football sized empty area (you probably saw it...back from the main entrance. The completely empty one that wasn't being used. FOR NOTHING. Nice use of space.) It did seem more crowded, and I liked the old spot too. The light was nice and I knew it a lot better. Plus it seemed way bigger up there but I suppose more and more people keep finding out about it.

 

And yes, the horror convention took up A LOT of room and so did the stupid video games. What a total waste of space that was. They should have each of the 3 in seperate rooms. Or atleast anime/comics together and then have horror/sci-fi/games and all the G4 lounges together.

Well, between me and my brother we didn't get a thing that we actually went for. He's trying to polish off a marvel comics gijoe run with no luck, and the comics i was looking for to finish my silver age jla run were all there....but i refuse to pay double or triple guide value for fair to good comics. He ended up with a few robin comics and a few other miscelaneous books. As for me, i almost bought the gijoe Rhino vehicle but siver snail had it overpriced too. I ended buying some foreign porn from a dealer @firedevil@ , and i got my girlfriend a PILLOW FIGHT LEAGUE t-shirt...those girls were hot man. lol. What did you guys end up getting?

No luck here synch. I was considering it, but after watching the guy open up a fresh box of kirks and start pulling out mangled and bent cards i refused to spend a dime on them. This is a con for collectors run by supposed proffesionals, wouldn't you think they of all people would try and keep a limited edition collectors item like that from getting ruined? I'm waiting for the skyway show in a month or two, now that's a true toycon.
