    Re: Great Texas G.I. Joe Show VI is a Go!!!

    Show was great. Good variety of 12" (and 3&3/4") stuff. I came home happy. Scored some cheap G.I. Joe stuff for my 7 year old and a boxed BBI Raider and boxed BBI Trident for next to nothing on the first day. Was surprised that there wasn't as big an attendance this year since we moved it to June. Am guessing that we were competing with vacations and such. Next year's show will be in April, though, so it should give everyone time to get ready again.

    The show will be at the same venue as this year - the Arlington Convention Center. However, we're looking to add two things - bring back the custom figure and vehicle contests and allocate more space to military vehicles to display. This year's involvement with the Texas Military Historical Society was a real crowd pleaser this year so next year, we want try and bring in jeeps, trucks and maybe even some tanks to the showroom. Looking at April 2011 this time, so start marking it down on your calendars.

    LMK on the date for 2011, I'm thinking of getting a booth this year. I may start producing limited med supplies soon for this. You said fall ? That would work.

    Well, we're hoping this one will keep the southern collector market happy for a while 6000 square feet of the show will be nothing but dealer space, custom figures contest entries, and new item previews. The other 6000 square feet will be for the re-enactors, their gear, tents, and vehicles.

    Well we thank you sir. Personally last year I came away very happy I spent some money went back the next day and spent some more. Great prices from vendors that I could not get anywhere else. I will start stowing cash now to spend that weekend.

    Thanks Greg

    That's news I like to hear. Also, if you're a customizer, start working. We'll have the custom figure rules up within the week...

    I have some I think already ready to go. By the way Greg we met many years ago I was good friends with Barry Vedros when I lived in Louisiana, when we built the D-Day museum diorama for the museum. You probably dont remember me but you probably remember the Diorama. I live in Fort Worth now.

    We had always extended an invite to the local Cobra group here, Cobra Cares, but never got a response. :-(

    Maybe they'll change their mind and show up for the DFW GI Joe and Action Figure Show II

    Hi Greg, would you happen to know where to find a vendor listing for the DFW show? This might be my first show so I wanted to see who was going to be there.

    To my knowledge, they haven't listed them yet. I'm working to get a booth's worth of stuff and sell as Cotswold. If not, then I plan to sell vintage G.I. Joe stuff...
