    Well, we'd sure like some folks to come to the party, so we're trying.

    any thoughts on a rotating venue like the Star Wars convention does? Find sites that tie into Mego stuff. Metropolis, Ill has all the Superman stuff. Tampa has CTVT. and I'm sure there are more places like that. You'd get more variety in attendees and still get the hardcore MM people to follow it around.

    Hey now, no reason for folks to get nasty is there?

    I mean, I thought this was a suggestion thread.

    We have suggestion threads in the EMCE forums, Castaway, Zica and Figures Toy forums, where we folks all voice our dislikes, and likes, our wants, our disappointments on toylines we have NO hand in actually producing.

    It's part of fandom.

    This is no different.

    So, we're talking about a convention instead of a toy line. Same dif.

    The Doc gave his opinion, I gave mine, B-lister gave his, T-Bolt gave his...

    No need to take anything personally.

    The solution might be to start a new show; New York High Quality China Made Reproduction Meet, anyone ?

    would love to have a show closer to the west coast. maybe somewhere in the middle like chicago? maybe around the same time as the kane county show? just a suggestion.

    I am serious. Why is it time to move the meet out of Wheeling? I never got an explanation for that other than spite and bias.

    Move it out of the basement? Sure, but what's wrong with the city of Wheeling other than 'it isn't New York.'?

    I won't hold my breath for an answer Paul, since you were so dismissive of where I live in the title and your reply.

    It's not the idea I find horrible, so much as the attitude and demeanor of the person presenting it. YOU don't like the venue. What's wrong with a bigger venue in Wheeling? Nothing. But in order for your idea to hold any weight, you can't criticize the venue without criticizing the city, as if they are not separate.

    The fact is, there's nothing wrong with the city of Wheeling, it is simply the cramped basement. You're just using that as a springboard for a change of location without checking to see if there was another suitable venue in the same city. If you were really trying to help, logic would dictate that would be the place to start.

    But you can't move it closer to New York without dismissing Wheeling.

    So in effect it is not about MEGO, or MEGO Meet at all. It is about the comfort of Doctor Mego.

    I would also love to see the meet moved out of WV. As someone who makes the 7hr drive, the distance is not the issue either. The event has outgrown the venue. The "Meet" has become a "Show" and needs to be treated as such. The 10th anniversary is the perfect time to upgrade this event. The 8" format is no longer a secret, with nearly 200 or more new 8" figures made over the last several years. I have long believed that this event, not to mention THIS ENTIRE FORMAT, would benefit from a venue that is more family oriented.
    Most of us get to take 1 vacation a year(if we are lucky). Most of us don't have the luxury of personal getaway AND a family vacation. If a location for the meet which would allow folks to combine the 2 could be found, the vent would benefit. If you are one of those who can afford several vacations and prefer to leave your family home, just don't bring them.

    Moving it might attract new people to the event and to the hobby. Me, for example.
