I'd just like to invite any and all members here to the Welsh Action Figure Show on Sunday 7th September in Chepstow South Wales. The best Show in Wales for getting your 1/6th Fix no matter what you like!
hi m8 .. glad your doing another one you be silly not to .. as you know you love em LOL
one thing about the change of dates ... many of the vam collectors have kids which is very close to the start of the school term (less funds ) but i guess its worth a try 100% better than not having it i guess ..
..VAME is the best an Action man can get .....there can only be one ....there is only one ..... VAME....
Sorry to drag this post up but will there be a show next year? I have been dying to go to a toy show which has boxes of VAM to dig through
I had a message off Alan a while back asking if I wanted a table for the next one which I think will be in October. It's definitely a show worth visiting but there isn't a massive amount of Action Man usually. It tends to cater more for the collector of modern, high detail figures and custom parts but Dave's stall always has some great vintage stuff.
I do get to the NEC toy fair reasonably often. It's a big one for sure, but the VAM is hit and miss. Like most general toy fairs it is dominated by trains and cars. There are usually a few of the regular big dealers there (Metropolis and Modellers Loft) and one or two small ones on a good day. Occasionally you'll find a stall with a cheapy VAM rummage box with a crowd around it! The best value by far are the dressed figures. There's often a stall with dressed figures in the white boxes with clear lids that are surprisngly good value if that's what you are looking for.
Next VAME meet will probably be in mid-June as usual, just outside Loughborough. Wall-to-wall VAM with bargains galore.
