Hey folks, if your a fan of all things action figure and you live in or near the Dallas/Fort Worth area, you might want to swing by the Arlington Convention Center on September 3rd and 4th for the

Great Texas G.I. Joe & Action Figure Expo VII

That's right. This is our 7th show in Texas (our 5th in DFW). The show started out with just vendors selling vintage G.I. Joes, but through the years has expanded into 1:6 scale and 1:18 G.I. Joe in both vintage and new offerings, plus the likes of Transformers, Star Wars, Marx, Masters of The Universe, Dragon Models, DID, Hot Toys - you name it. If it's an action figure - it will most likely be at this show.

Also, if you're a fan of militaria and military re-enacting, bring your cameras, for we'll have military vehicles, weapons, equipment, and re-enactors themselves in full uniform from both WWI and WWII on display and walking around the showroom floor.

Science fiction more your thing? No problem. The Star Garrison of the 501st Legion and Clan Muraan of the Mandalorian Mercs will also be in attendance at the show in full gear loadout.

Finally, if you're a figure customizer - small or large scale - you might be interested in entering one or more of our four custom figure contest that we're hosting. Lots of prizes are to be won - some worth as much as $300!

See you there!!!

I might take my truck and table to the show that weekend and sell from the parking lot to avoid the fees.
