There is no specific order to the display of these pictures, but since this is not strictlya Transformers show (like TFCon), I took a few shots of the overall hall and then any tables which had TF's on them.
As you go through these pics, see if you can notice the difference of what types (G1, 3rd party, etc) of Transformers are available.
|This was one of the outer hallways before entering the main showroom.|
|One end of the showroom|
|One dealer out in the hallway had this at their table.|
I would have grabbed the Seacons but it had been opened and the figures looked a little dirty.
The e-Hobby stuff was also opened.
I already have the carded Takara Combaticons at home MOSC.

|The next 5 pictures come from the table of one of the shows sponsors, B & K Collectables.|
|This dealer was one of the very few strictly Transformer dealers at this show.|
|My Cartoon Heroes|
Another one of the main, though not just strictly, Transformer dealer Spiros who is usally at most of the shows.
|Another fine selection to choose from.|
- $20 gas
- $20 admission
- $10 on two donation toys to get in 15 min early (ahead of the early-bird crowd)
- $10 on six carded figures (you'll have to wait for my next post)
There certainly was a common theme throughout the TF tables, and that was the increased amount of third-party products compared to the slim number of G1/G2 figures. My dealer friend "E" has mentioned it a few times that he has been slowly shifting his business to that end of the spectrum as well.
I don't think that it's a lack of interest from collectors, but rather more collectors are buying up and just sitting on their collections. It sure does make it harder to find good pieces other than trolling eBay and paying shipping prices.
In the end, more money saved for me, albeit temporarily, since TFCon is coming up quickly in a few months in July.
