Jan 26 OCC - your thoughts?

I wasn't able to come out to this one, and I missed October's (November's?) as well

Anyone who attended today's OCC (i know it's technically still going on), was/is it any good? Find anything sweet?

Con haul thread I guess - dealer's room & pre-arranges all count, sellers' experiences, go nuts!

Re: Jan 26 OCC - your thoughts?

My focus is was on Prime Wars and Siege figures so here goes...

October:
- Siege galore... and overpriced at that. I spent just $30 on basket toys for my two kids.
- Good attendance for both early and regular admissions.

January:
- This one seems to be Prime Wars clearance sales. Loose complete CW figures were selling for <$10 and voyagers (including red Prime and Sky Lynx) were <$15. MIB sets were <$100. Loads of TR and POTP loose complete/MIB leader figures selling for $30. Sellers were giving me 20%-50% off listed price as they "had trouble moving them". Brand new POTP P-CP and Siege Lancer were selling for $35. I used up all the cash I brought with me; good times!
- These discounts were all given to me during early admissions. I can't imagine what the discount would be had I waited until the end.
- Attendance was puny compared to October, which I was told was expected. My kids absolutely loved it.

How is the Star Wars stuff at these? I have some older Black Series I'm looking to get at some point and would rather not pay eBay prices.

I don't know much about Star Wars, but they have a very significant presence there from the 2 OCC I attended; almost all the cosplayers were Star Wars characters. However, it seems to me that OCC is a small convention, so what will be available at these quarterly OCC will vary greatly.

Ya it was a pretty good show. Didn't stay long but managed to pick up a couple things - MOTU Orko Funko Pop & Fat Bastard action figure. Thanks to the dealers & staff for putting on another great one.

Re: Jan 26 OCC - your thoughts?

We went fairly late in the day so it wasn't as busy but still a decent selection I found. I haven't been to OCC for a couple years and noticed this one had a bit more selection in TF's.

Had a pre arranged deal with a board member and when he saw it was for my youngest son he wouldn't take my $$ for it.

Bought a loose skids and when I walked by another table the person noticed we didn't have instructions for it and handed me an extra he had.
