MEGA TOY FAIR 2014 WAYVILLE SHOWGROUNDS

Post by The Iceman on Sun May 25, 2014 9:50 am

It's that time of the year again at the Wayville Showgrounds this coming Saturday 31st May and Sunday 1st June.
The 21st Mega Toy Fair with approx. 245 tables of collectable toys and fun. I will be there for my 18th consecutive year with tables of action figures consisting of Marvel Legends, Marvel Universe, DC Universe, Hot Wheels, Star Wars figures and vehicles + Marvel Silverage comic books, all Fine+ to VF/NM. Also for the first time my lovely wife will also have a table of Barbie dolls and Beanie Bears. My long time buddy Ian and his wife will be set up right next door with his Tin Toys, Dinky and Matchbox cars for sale. Special appearances are usually made by Stormtroopers and Jedi Knights over the course of the weekend.
Set up is Friday night and doors open to the public from 10:00am to 5:00pm Saturday and 10:00am to 3:00pm Sunday. Enty is $7.50 per adult, kids 12 to 17 $2.00 and under 12 free.

Extremely well.......best ever. My overall total was increased greatly by my Silver Age Marvel comics that I sold and the wife was happy that there wasn't a great deal that I bought for myself. Smile

That's great to hear. Did you have a stall? Or you just sell them while walking around?

I'd be interested if Melbourne had one.

Started with 1 table 17 years ago and haven't missed a year since except I have 3 tables now......have a great time and meet and help fellow collectors from all over the place. It is a hugely popular event here in Adelaide with a lot of interstate sellers making the trip over each year. I am surprised a city like Melbourne doesn't have something on par with ours? If I get around to it I'll try and post some pics on here Smile

Yeah I plan to have a table at the October Nexus. Not sure if I'll make the one up in Craigie - August right?

I believe the Aladdin's events are still happening at Windsor - maybe monthly?
