Hi all,

I'm not likely going to be able to make it to this year's convention (I was at San Francisco, but I can't make it one hour to get to Orlando.... go figure...)

So what I was thinking was this....I'm going to post all the items I was going to take to have at a table at the con here on the YoJoe web board for those of you who are not able to attend the con either can have first dibs on the stuff.

The dealer room opens at the con around 2 in the afternoon on Friday, so I was thinking I could post all my stuff up around that same time.

Any one else want to do the same with their stuff?

This way we can have some good stuff here, and leave the remains for those who are able to get into the con for when they get back from the dealer room.

Ill throw down. I got lots of MOC goodies and rarities to post. 1 rule, everyone should post item, conditions, and prices. I think everyone should price to negotiate, and be willing. just like a real show. Ill have pictures of everything i have up to offer.
count me in.

That's exactly what I'm doing. I've got a huge list going. I don't know about pictures, but I'll try.

I have tons of MOC stuff as well as international figures. I actually will be posting more than I would have been able to take to the convention with me too.

Oh, and I'll be open to trades too.... :)

06-27-2004, 11:17 PM
yep ill be down for good quality trades also. I want MOC's from 82-86 ANY CONDITION Deadmint to trashed!

06-27-2004, 11:22 PM
Wow cool of you guys!!!

06-27-2004, 11:29 PM
Hey John when are you posting this? I have bought from you before and would like to get some more moc things

This will start Friday at 2 PM Eastern for me. Approximately the same time as when everyone who is already registered with the Convention will be waiting in line to get into the dealer room.

This way, those of us who can't/don't want to go will be able to pick up some cool stuff too.

I'll keep an eye out to the message boards Friday since I won't be ANYWHERE near the Con (Madison, WI). I don't know how much cash I'll have on hand to buy(sropped $80 at Kane County and another $150 tonight on a Flagg). But I'll be looking and it sounds fun.


06-28-2004, 10:10 AM
doh! of course i will be at work

06-28-2004, 01:11 PM
So i just thought of this. what if we held, at certain times of the day(s) a meeting in gijoehq chat during the show, and treated as a swapmeet?? we can all talk about what we have for sale/trade at certain planed times just like our own "live online convention" that way we dont flood our pm and email box's. Put our list's on yojoe, and talk about the stuff in hqchat?
Just figured it would make this all that more fun.

Great idea guys. I have a growing sale list and it needs to be taken off my hands. I think we should do it like at a designated time every week or somthing. Sun Night for example. Shoot out some ideas...

Nope, no BUGG. I just ebayed it and it's gone. No one wanted it after repeated attempts to sell it here for over a year.

Count me in. I have a lot of MOCs that I would like to get off my hands.

06-28-2004, 07:39 PM
Now this is a GREAT idea. Count me in!

Awesome idea. If anyone has a moc 84 mutt and junkyard, I got money.

John Missal

I won't have an MOC 84 mutt, but I will have a European Mutt and Spirit loose set available :)

So far, I've pulled out and updated my for sale list with tons of stuff, including, but not limited to:

MOC US figures, MOC International figures, loose US and International figures. Boxed Funskool and US vehicles. Carded and loose Action Force figures, previous year's convention exclusive items, board games, and a couple of 12 inch items. I'm still dragging more out of the closets for this...

You cant honestly think you can post 2 nice UK fig's on here, and not expect someone to want to jump on them, even before they go on sale? lol

Yes :)

As for Rare stuff...I dunno about that. I'll also be updating all weekend, as I'm using this as a chance to clean out the shed.

Board move update!!!

"If there's any way to get it done by noon-ish we'll go that route. (once the problem is discovered, I've got the actual import routine down pat now - 45 min tops)"

So, it may be happening tomorrow morning, before the online convention booth is up and running! I let the tech guy know about that, so if it's going to be later we're going to push off the upgrade until Monday.

Heck..we definitely don't want the board down during the REAL convention let alone our little deal. We gotta be able to talk about the things going on there :)

Thanks for the heads up Jeff.

Yeah, when, and in what part of the forum? Here in buy/sell/tradeq&a, or another part?

John Missal

In a couple of minutes in the For Sale section. Anyone can post stuff, either in another thread, or directly into the Online Con thread I'll start. I'll update my list through out the weekend as well.

I'm running a little late because I had to wait on UPS at my store.

07-02-2004, 03:19 PM

I just finished my box of loose figures with accessories a little while ago. WOW&lt; I didn't realize my list was going to be so long when I started.

I have a box of figures I call the dollar box, that I will be posting tonight as well. This was the box I was looking forward most to selling at the con, since I usually get a lot of people going "you only want a dollar for this?" :) And I sell a ton.....

john M. &gt;shamelessly self promoting....

07-02-2004, 08:41 PM
I posted my items as well.
