I know I usually report on toy shows after the fact, but I thought I’d try something new this time. I’m actually letting you know about a show early, so we can compete for the hidden treasures.
This weekend, there’s a toy show at the Metrolina Tradeshow Expo in Charlotte. I’m gonna go on Sunday I think. Hopefully there will be good stuff leftover for me.
7100 Statesville Road
Charlotte, NC 28269
Saturday: 9 AM – 4 PM
Sunday: 10 AM – 4 PM
Children under 15: FREE
Weekend Pass: $7.00
If there are any local Weirdo Toys readers in the area, I’d love to meet you (It may be awkward or it may be fun. I dunno).
By the way, I’m not gonna start doing a national toy show report or anything (at least not yet). I’ll just occasionally list some shows I’m going to, and I’ll hopefully show you the results of my regular toy treks. If there are toy shows you all are interested in, I can blog about those too.
The Charlotte show is hit and miss. Sometimes, I don’t find anything worthwhile, and other times, I come across gems like these:
I hope to see you there.
Oh yeah. I need to warn you. It seems like half the show is usually NASCAR and other sports memorabilia. Good luck 😀
I live in Atlanta so I’m about 250 miles away.
I get out of church around 12 noon so if I left
right then, then I would get there almost right
when the show closes 🙁
Whats the latest on Batman? And hope you find some great items
@krakit – I guess you’ll have to skip church. I’m sure God will understand 😉 Seriously though, it may not be worth the trip from Atlanta. It’s sometimes barely worth the trip from Greenville.
@Oldman – No word on that Batman bootleg yet. I’ll let you know what’s happening with it and if I find any cool stuff in Charlotte.
Whats the word on that awesome Inspector Gadget toy?
@ Tommy Day – Just click the image to find out 😉
Someone mail me that Inspector Gadget figure NOW! Seriously, that’s just freakin’ awesome.
Inspector Gadget was one of my favorite shows when I was a kid!
I used to have that Gadget figure. It’s like all our father’s and their baseball cards…I wish I still had it!
Holy crap! I had that skeleton guy in the knight’s helmet when I was little! I totally forgot that guy!
I saw that on timewarp toys website for sale, and they have infomation.
that wolf thing I saw on timewarp toys, don’t be confused.
@ zehn – I was confused. Thanks for clarifying 😉
Do you think there will be any Lego sellers there???
