If you are looking for a cheap $3 admission to a toy show, go to the Scottish Cultural Center, Pop Culture Show which happens 4 times a year. R&R no longer exists. The closest thing to it is the Scottish Cultural Center Show which has seen drastic improvement since 2017 after a lot of the previous R&R vendors are vending there now. The tables are now selling out 2 months before the show instead of not even close to selling out at shows before 2017. Ages 3 and up are vending there everytime now as well.

I was a helper at one of the tables there, and this show is now over 200 tables of comics, toys, collectibles. Around 40% of the tables are comics, and the rest are toys and collectibles. Big toy shops like Toy Traders, Big Petes, Ages 3 and up, and Cherry Bomb Collectibles were all vending there. They did raise the admission from $8 to $12 and tables price are now $90, due to moving to PNE which is a much more expensive venue. I would recommend going next time if you have a big multiple toyline or comics want list, then for sure the $12 is still worth it.
If you only collect one particular toyline, and very few things on your want list, you might not be able to find something you want there and I would just get a friend who is going to help to see if your wanted item is there.

Re: BC Community Thread For Non-Sightings Chat

Hmm, I already have Greenlight on preorder but I'm debating just cancelling. I still have an unopened Novastar just sitting around. It's not a great mold, the only reason I can think to actually keep them is for a fembot combiner, but Hasbro isn't even making the full set. Anyone have any other good reasons to get all these figures?

Nope, I'm going to pass. But I'm also becoming quite a bit pickier as I get older and funds become less available haha

Chromia doesn't count. She was re tooled amd combiner port was removed. Stupid on Hasbro's part. IIRC the 5th member is supposed to be Lancer but no reveals as far as I know. Since they are using these "codes" maybe it will be revealed under Greenligjt

Same about getting picky/not having funds. Plus I just don't have the space.

I suppose it might be smart to wait and see if they do in fact announce the 5th one. But I really think these fembots would be a lot more interesting if they weren't all the same mold.

Re: BC Community Thread For Non-Sightings Chat

So now they're doing Astrotrain again after they just did one in Titans Return... Now what? All these new figures are awesome but I don't have room for multiples of every character. I'm gonna have to start making some decisions about if and how to get out...
