Conway:
A ridiculously fun, can't miss event. I'll be there!
Outbackk:
We'll be having plenty of preview images coming in the next few weeks. Here is you're first one!

Slaymaker:
JINX! Maybe I have shot at getting one!! Slaymakers will be there...
camper:
An' yo Scahlett will be theah as well, mah fre'ns!!

Seriously good show, looking forward to the Joe DeClassified goods, a couple other possibly(?) classified booths, and seeing all the Midwesterners that make fun of my Southern drawl. Had a blast last year, cannot wait to get yelled at by Goggles again this year at Zombie Burger!
WildWeaselZ06:
Gonna talk to the wife. Just moved to the KC area from FL. May have to check this out.

Totally worth it. Prizes were great last year, stellar this year. I rode on a ^*@# bus last year to join in, will be driving from AL this year. KC isn't a far trip, so DO IT!!



The guys that put this show on do it on their own dime just for the love of Joes and community. They put their own cash into it just for folks like us to join in on a whim. The speakers travel on their own dime as well. I GUARANTEE this will be a Midwestern Must for Joe fans in a year or two, and I am happy to be in on the onset. Got a tee, got a few Joes, got a few great stories from last year's show... dude, I LIVE IN ALABAMA and I am driving 800+ miles just to join in again. DO IT!!!!
camper:
Anyone else in?
Widowmaker:
Awee Hell I am one state away or about 2 or so hours I might try to go to this weather permitting etc
nova:
I really wanted to do this...but I don't think it's going to happen...

Whaa??? Come on, man! You'll have a blast.
The L.O.C.:

I have no doubt you'll walk away with something.
Widowmaker:
Hopefully gas doesn't go up anymore lol
Money-B:
What hotels are good to stay at for the event?

Is there anything going on after?

I'm trying to decide if I am going to stay 1 or 2 nights.

I don't doubt you... It's just a 12hr drive...even if gas drops to $3 ahead of the election, thats a lot of overhead to make up if I set up as a dealer... and more than I can really afford to drop on a trip just for my own fun.

This link should help. It has a couple links to some local hotels. There is also a cluster of hotels by the Des Moines International Airport which isn't too far from the meet up location.

Good thing those dealer tables are only $25! Seriously, I understand but we'd all love to see you there!
camper:
Loving the Joe Declassified teases I'm seeing on Twitter about goods that'll be shown at AR! Looking forward to it

Y'all!!
cmderinchief:
I will be attending.
jogunwarrior:
I will of course be there as well! Really looking forward to seeing everyone again, and meeting some cool new people!
WildWeaselZ06:
I'm talking to the wife. I'm probably gonna go. Heck, it's only 3.5 hours. Used to do that once or twice a year to go to Tampa or Orlando for the Mutt/Mami/Sirt meets in FL. I miss being able to meet up with my fellow collectors. The general public just doesn't get it.

Vintage Ninja Viper w/swords
Gold Pimp Daddy Destro
GIJCC Footloose, carded
MIB 2005 MARS Invades Convention Set
Loose Python Patrol II Figures

Lots of loose vintage figures
And more, come and see me there!
Outbackk:

WildWeaselZ06:
I have quite a few modern cobra army builders. Especially, 25th BATs, Cobra Divers, and PP CGs and Officers. Also have a couple extra Ross Twin Terror Guns and Flight Pods. Also, have s Renegades SS and ROC Kamakura set, send me an offer on the two. I'd rather not separate them, both are MOC. Also, a target exclusive PP conquest and sn extra of this years con helicopter.

Looking for a night attack chopper, either paint scheme, the crimson command chopper, storm eagle, ghoststriker, and liquidator.

Also, looking for a couple of Target ROC CLAWS, can be loose, but would like complete.
camper:
AR bound in about a week!

Bringing Southern charm, will trade for Midwestern shenanigans.

And will donate a moc 25th Stinger to the prize table.
Outbackk:

You should still enter something. All the customs last year were top notch and it was fun to see them all...

I might, my sons and I each had stuff in there last year. I may just bring some stuff to show...if Outbackk is cool with that since I will not be eligible to win.

yep.
Primedeus:
Is anyone in need of some sets of the Dollar General Joes? I was in a couple stores this week in my travels and saw a couple sets out there - I could head back and pick them up and bring them down for trade or sale.
