Thats not far from me. I'll be there. I'm going to the one tomorrow too.
Here's my pickup from today's show in Burlington! Spent all my money within the first ten minutes there.
I helped Ed spend his money.
Good on you for getting a Super Shogun Stormtrooper! Brian Flynn, the principle of Super 7 has been a friend for about 15 years, and this was one of the things we spoke of on day one. To see it (I got my hands on one April of last year I think?) was Christmas '78 all over again. I really want these to do well enough to warrant two more which in told are waiting in the wings...
The price was too good to pass up, plus a couple of Venture Brothers for ten bucks a pop!
Missed the Twilight Zone figures for ten bucks, but that was probably a good thing that I didn't go to a bank machine.
I tend to just buy a lot of odds and sods at these shows, and I think it was better that I got one big piece that I REALLY wanted rather than lots of small clutter that just gather's dust. (at least that was my justification when I got home )
I ended up with a carded Super Powers Joker and a Pocket Heroes Robin (with straight legs not bent). I found a DCUC Zatanna but the guy wouldn't sell her to me without the rest of her wave of figures so I had to put her back.
It was one of the better toy shows I had been to in years. There was a nice mix of things and I saw several Mego's. Even a removable mask Robin. Though I couldn't afford him right now, it was the first time I had seen one up close.
I wish I had come early enough for the $10 Twilight Zone figures, by the time I got there, they were on a dealer's table for $25 each.
My son spent his Christmas money pretty methodically but I didn't part with any. It was fun to see those Boxed Shoguns, Knickerbocker LOTR and Black Hole sets (that humanoid was fake tho) but the prices were kind of attrocious.

I was purposely avoiding looking at that $50 vintage Deathstar you were talking about.
If I hadn't bought the Jumbo Stormtrooper, I might have made that Riddler Super Amigos my ridiculous impulse purchase.
