    The AZ Joeheads will be there in full force. We plan on doing another dio for the show and hopefully get some folks to come out and support this hobby. The Pomona fairgrounds is a nice place to hold it as we did the AMA show in Nov. and was pleased with the set up. I know that John made it out for that show and we pestered him into having another WOH show as I am sure allot of folks do. I also know that Monkey Rabbit Studio's will have a display of tanks there so that folks can see what neat stuff they are doing. War Toys and Echo base just to name a few of the vendors. Looking forward to having another 1/6 show to go to and get excited about the hobby.

    Man, does this show bring back memories...I recall WOH 2005 when I lived in California. This show pulled me into the hobby!
    I recall the exclusive FJ and Soviet twin pack from DiD, Replica Tiger tank with Zimmer at the parking lot, and Gunther the German vet (did he pass away?)...

    All we are missing now is a Dragon EXPO!!

    Awesome news, now bring it to the east cost!
    Regards.

    It's been nearly a decade since the last one, so some on this board may not know what we're talking about.

    A Weekend of Heroes was a once a year gathering of the biggest dealers in the country. Collectors, customizers, kitbashers, manufacturers, dealers big and small, 12", 4", new and old. I once bought so much, when I was leaving people thought I was a dealer that packed up.

    I highly recommend attending this show. Ask your favorite dealer if they'll be there.

    By the way, it's my understanding that OSW will be offered a table as was done at past shows.

    Re: A weekend of heroes 2020!!!!

    Yes the dates are Fri and Sat. The conversation has always been how dead allot of the shows were on Sunday and to alleviate that problem they just made Friday a set up day with the afternoon being the start of the show. It makes it hard for the groups that travel and set up but it can be done. The AMA show in Nov. was Friday set up and afternoon show and we did ok with that schedule. Sat. will be show and than clean up so that means a nice travel day back home on Sunday.

    It's also because one of the biggest swap meets in the country, the Rose Bowl, is that Sunday. This is not the only show to avoid that Sunday.

    Monkey Depot is not scheduled to do the show, Monkey Rabbit Studios is tho and they do some really neat tanks. War Toys and Echo will be there as far as I have heard as well as the vendors that have mentioned it on this thread. Should be allot of 1/6 goodies to sooth the sweet tooth of the plastic crack addicts. Look forward to doing the show.

    Hopefully I can go. Finally got a 3d Printer to do some builds now. Maybe!! Hopefully I'll have my FV 423 and VBL-L builds finished.

    I'm keywording the Maybe.

    Would be great to see all of you out-of-towners again. Been years...
    Heck, it'd be great to see the locals again. Most don't come to other shows, maybe this one will bring out the old guard.

    Sounds like we need some special OSW swag for the occasion.
