    What treasures are you hoping to pick up this year?

    A thread to connect folks wanting to buy things with folks wanting to sell things at the show!

    What are your wish-lists? Anyone out there able to fulfill them! Win-win.

    I'm generally a sucker for anything Gatchaman/Battle of the Planets related, oddball vintage Spider-Man stuff, and Vintage Mexican and Japanese Star Wars stuff has now become a passion. If you have Japanese Spider-Man stuff, I would likely tear off your arm to own it. With that said.. the US exchange rate is tough on us Canucks, and I have a wife muling stuff in from Japan on a monthly basis, so my budget is much more limited this year, so I've got to be selective. 8)

    Then you can't go wrong with a Motorized God Phoenix Model Kit. I bring it every year to the meet. Never assembled and the box is in nice shape

    I'm 3 boxed Heros away from having at least 1 of every WGSH, but the last 3 are heavy hitters and hard to come by for a good price... SuperGirl, Isis and Conan.
    Looking to get a boxed Will Scarlet and some boxed pirates

    By the skin of my teeth looks like my budget will close to last year if not the same.

    Vintage

    Boxed: Conan or Isis. Depending out what I find I would consider an ASM Spidey box since I am a huge Spidey fan and I realize every year it will be tougher to get stuff I need

    Carded: I would absolutely LOVE to get a carded Catwoman, US carded Thing or Thor. Right below them Kresge Wonder Woman, Falcon or Conan. Finally on the off chance I'd be willing to spend my my whole/near my whole budget on one item, a carded Riddler.

    Non-vintage: Assuming I haven't bought them by them, FTC Harley Quinn, Scarecrow or Black Vulcan

    Shogun warriors stuff, Popy black kamen rider and battle fever.
    I almost had a psychic girlfriend but she dumped me before we met.

    If anyone here believes in psychokinesis, please raise my hand.

    Ironically I'm looking for the last 5 I need to complete my set - but I need Batman, Batgirl, Invisible Girl, Green Goblin & Conan. Also looking for some carded WGSH I don't have yet and the FTC/EMCE figures I've missed so far this past year.
    WANTED: Boxed, Carded and Kresge Carded WGSH

    I hope to at least have a baggie of shavings Lee can use during a flocking demo.
