AELAIDE 2011 ANNUAL TOY COLLECTABLE FAIR

Post by The Iceman on Sun May 15, 2011 3:38 pm

The annual Adelaide Showgrounds Toy Collectable Fair is on again this year at the Wayville Showgrounds on Saturday June 4th and Sunday June 5th. It normally would be held the long weekend but due to other bookings is a week earlier this year.
I will be there with a couple of tables of Marvel, DC, Star Wars & Hot Wheels stuff. For any of the Adelaide Ozfigurama guys drop in and say good day mention this site and get a discount, cheers. Smile Smile

I will be going there again this year. I know someone who knows one of the sellers and unfortunately, some of the sellers buy the good stuff before the doors even open.

DBF, it is a long way to come if you are not from Adelaide and, in my opinion, not really worth it to make the trek. There are a lot of overpriced items but I guess that is to be expected.

DBF, probably depends on what you are after. Some years there are an abundance of old Transformers (couldn't tell you prices as I am not into them) and usually a few sellers there with old Masters of the Universe (prices average), always heaps of Star Wars (and yes some sellers still think they are worth an arm and a leg), a lot of tin toys, die-cast and models on every second or third table, usually some Barbie dolls for the ladies. Sellers of action figures in general pretty good with a lot more people selling off their Toybiz Marvel Legend figures the last couple of years. Usually a comic seller or two (local dealers and interstate). Always interstate toy dealers present from NSW and Victoria. Crowds over the two days are in the thousands and my sales for the last 10 years (being doing it 14 years altogether) are always between $1000 and $1500 with basically Marvel Legends, DC Universe, Star Wars and Hot Wheels being 95% of my 2 tables. Never had the pleasure of attending an interstate show but for little old Adelaide we do OK. I think you would enjoy yourself. Smile Smile

Hi, just a snap of one of my two tables at the Toy Fair.
Once again a great weekend, good crowds, good sales, caught up with some friends both from interstate and local. Kept the missus happy by clearing some space at home plus sold some of her Beanie Kid doubles. Very Happy Very Happy
The only thing I actually bought for myself was a Destroyer light up figure from a Melbourne dealer Very Happy Can't wait til the next Fair.
Now I have worked out how to load photos (thanks to Anthony) I will put up some photos of my collection and some diorama scenes I have mucked around with. Smile

Frost Giant with Loki has just arrived along with the Goliath/Thor clone (which I just opened and added to my street scene).
I'll PM you for your postage details. Smile
