    Anyone get to go? My wife went to the cop's funeral in Modesto and then I got some weird, horrible flu and couldn't make this show? Hopefully it goes down again in October!

      You didn't miss much so don't worry. There were only about 25-30 dealers at the show and the majority of them wanted too much for what they had. I did manage to get a really good deal on a loose Steel figure and some animated DVD's, but that was about it. Out of all the dealers, there were maybe 4 that offered good deals.

      I regret not buying a sealed Batman Inc. Robin figure for $5. It sells online for at least 30. I saw it several times and when I finally went to get it, it was gone. Same with a GL Bobblehead.

        How was the crowd? Where there a lot of folks or was it pretty quiet?

        BTW Sylent, what city in the Bay Area do you actually live in? I'm not stalking, it's just that between you, Darth, nevermore, me and even a few others there is a lot of NorCal/Bay Area representing but this is a pretty large area.

        I put Bay Area, but I actually live on the Peninsula. San Mateo.

            There wasn't much of a crowd. Because this show wasn't well-advertised, it kind of suffered in that regard, but there were a fair amount of people that showed up. If more comic shops in the Bay and the Valley advertised this show, it would have had a much better turnout.

            I actually live on the outskirts of Lathrop, but I put "the No-Cal Valley." It's all pretty much the same since there's nothing out there but tumbleweeds and cows. Stalker!!!

            I don't. I too used to live in Fremont, but the only thing I miss is the cool weather. The Bay is too crowded for me, especially San Jose. I hate that city.

              Lathrop? Never heard of it! Had to Google Map it (Stalker NOT!). It's by Manteca which I have been to on multiple occasions. There is a huge very nice soccer complex park there that my daughter has played on. Woodward Park. Beyond that, don't have a clue!

                Yuba City? You got to update your profile and put Sac Town vs Nor Cal. Never been there but I do have a Yuba City story. Do you recall about a year or so ago that big murder/manslaughter of that doctor by that construction worker guy with that "professional" girl at the heart of it all? Wasn't that absolutely crazy? Anyways, that doctor was my friends uncle.

                  Thanks for supporting the show, much appreciated!!! We had exactly 38 dealers. Alot of the comic shops don't like to advertise shows because it takes away from their own business, one comic shop is Flying Colors in Concord. We had a much better turnout than expected. So we will keep on doing shows, next one will be Oct 13th 2012

                    I found some pretty good bargains at the toy show. I think that's what most people look for when coming to the show.

                    I hope there are more "garage sale" type of seller's at the next show, as they're usually the one's more open to pricing negotiation, while Comic Book Store owners are less likely to do so.

                    Hopefully, word will get out that vendor tables are only $30 and we'll get more seller's. I mean, the Toy Show in San Jose had a wait to list for a vending table.

                    At any rate, I'll most likely attend the show again in October.
