Dealer tables are $70 for a six foot table or $300 for 5 six foot tables.I sat up 1 table a couple shows back selling Joe stuff and made out quite well.I'll be at this one as well helping a friend sell his wares.It's a really good one day show with a little of everything for everyone.Admission is $3 bucks for adults and free for kids 8 and under.The Star Wars 501st and Star Trek Klingon groups are always there so kids can get some good pics.
If inquiring about dealer info you can contact Tim at timmymacs.com or Eddie at timetunnelcomics.com.

Thanks. I sent them a message and plan to get 2 tables. Should be fun. Will be bringing lots of vintage Joe stuff, and other odds and ends.

Well its confirmed. I'll be there with 2 tables of vintage GI Joe (lots of vehicles), figures. I have a dirty, incomplete Flagg i can drag along if there is any interest in it. Also have some Mattycollector items from Watchmen to DC Universe I'll have.

Post here if you are attending - always good to try and put a face to a name.

Thanks for giving the heads up on this one, I definitely would have missed it!

Looking forward to seeing any tankers who make it to this show.The convention center is located in a great spot with lots of food and shopping within a 1-2 mile radius.A Toys R Us,Super Walmart,Target,Ross,TJ Maxx,Valley Hills Mall,and Time Tunnel Comics(one of the show hosts) are all in this radius.If feeling adventurous you can head down I-40 about 25 miles from Hickory to Morganton and hit Timmy Macs Comics(the other show host).

I'm probably going to be there. That's a long drive from Clemson!

Have you guys heard of Charticon? It's a Transformers convention in Charlotte August 9-11. I didn't want to post a thread about it because it's not GI Joe related.

I'd say post away. You can always find other lines at shows...plus most likely folks here would be interested.

Its only about a 2 hour drive up to Hickory. Totally worth it if its a decent show. Plus I've got lots of vehicles I'd love to sell in person vs ship...even some rare stuff like Night Ray, Night Striker, etc.

Yeah, it's possible that there will be GI Joe stuff being sold at Charticon. We only require 50% of the items for sale be Transformers related. Maybe I'll create a post as it gets closer to the show.
