More than Ready!!! The Bronx will be there!!!

2011 was our first year and started a consecutive year streak, for myself 7 years running counting this year.

West Virginia and the first 4 years were a blast, as were the past 2 in Chicago. This last year in Chicago will no doubt as great as the rest.

Looking forward to seeing the extended family, Berto and Tomasso, The Paul's Clarke and Wasson, the Scott's, The Gordy's, Brian Leitner, Austin, Toyman Chris, Steve and Brian and any new acquaintances weather from the Museum or Facebook.
The Auction, The Customs, THE FOOD!!!
THE MEGOS!!!

See you all SOON!!!

OMG I FORGOT ED!!! See you soon Sam!!! Lol

I'll be there on Saturday. This will be my first Mego Meet.

I've been a member of the board for a fairly long time, but I've been living in Belize, Afghanistan and the U.S. Virgin Islands, so Wheeling and Skokie haven't been that convenient for me...

I'm looking forward to it!

This is the third year for my son and I to attend.
Excited to have a table this year and maybe get rid of some of the things I have packed into storage.
Cip says he is looking forward to building a custom.
one month to go; uh oh.... where did I put those boxes?

Hope to be there all three/two days. Sadly this is probably my last, as I cant afford to go as it is not local and I have too many cons in the summer to attend.

May 16, '17, 2:55 PM
Sad to say , again I will not be able to go. 😩 One day I really hope to be able to make it. Maybe next years will be in the NY NJ or PA area then I would be able to make it. Have a blast my Mego friends!!

"Who's comin'...?"

:grin:

"Is this Your First Time? "

quoting the wisdom of Foriegner "it feels like the first time", but actually, no

"---If Not, How Many Years/Times have you attended?"

Counting Megocon04 in NY? I can't remember. Not counting that, I can't remember. Several, but it's been a minute.

"What are you most looking forward to?"

Complaining to Paul Clarke about the effects of the reproduction market on the price value of vintage original. :wink_y:

"Are you 'Ready' yet?"

In preparation I have left sticky notes all over the house to remember to pack underwear, so I am getting there.

Who's comin'...? Me and both boys

Is this Your First Time? Nope

---If Not, How Many Years/Times have you attended? This will be 10 years straight

What are you most looking forward to? Seeing everyone and meeting the newbies. And I'd really like to score a carded WGSH I don't currently have.

Are you 'Ready' yet? Not even close

Who's comin'...?

Yeah, me...

Is this Your First Time?

Fifth time, I think.

---If Not, How Many Years/Times have you attended?

3 in WV (one of which had major car drama), 2015 in Skokie

What are you most looking forward to?

Seeing everyones creative efforts.

Are you 'Ready' yet? :

No, and I still won't be ready a week after it's over.

Who's comin'...?

me and The Boy

Is this Your First Time?

nope.

---If Not, How Many Years/Times have you attended?

since 2008

What are you most looking forward to?

Seeing everyones creative efforts. ditto ditto ditto (and some $10 FTC figures lol)

Are you 'Ready' yet? :

Mentally, yes. Financially, yes. Did I build anything for the event this year, no and that bums me out. Life, work, stress...if it could get in the way, it sure as heck did. I will probably bring the printer again - my tables will probably be a repeat of last year where I just build me something on Saturday or paint heads for the kids or whatever. Trying to see if I can muster something up for the customs auction without waiting till the last minute...but that time is running out of course.

And for the record - it was DaveMC who held my hand and got me to my first meet. Glad he's coming back. Been a long time dude.

Me

Is this Your First Time?

No

---If Not, How Many Years/Times have you attended?

9 years. My first year was 2007, missed 2008, have attended every year since.

What are you most looking forward to?

Catching up with everyone. The people I see at this show every year are great friends and it's shame I only see them once a year.

Are you 'Ready' yet?

Sort of. Don't have quite the money saved I want and it's hard to gear up for anything right now as I've been really sick this week (sorry for the downer).

I've intended to go every year since the start...

What are you most looking forward to?

Finally making it to one, maybe score something off my dusty old want-list.

Are you 'Ready' yet? :wink:

Not at all. Was so used to not being able to make it that I spaced on pulling the trigger on a room for Saturday night (let alone Friday). The plan now is to hit the road balls-early on Saturday and see where the day takes me. Maybe I'll make a friend who'll take $50 for me to crash on the floor.
