Review: 10th Christmas Toys & Collectibles Fair 2015 (December 13, 2015)

Clockwise: Comic haul’s include: Batman #508; Batman: Shadow of the Bat #29; Exiles 74 (New Universe World Tour); The Nam #3-#4, #6-#7, #9, & #12; The Mighty Thor #390; Spider-Man 2099 #25; Web of Spider-Man #40-#41, #43; The West Coast Avengers #3, #6, #11, #17, and #42; and Avengers West Coast #62 and #72. | Assorted Marvel Cards | Heroclix (Left to Right) Hydra Agent H, Hydra Annhil-Agent, and Beastboy (Dolphin). Not pictured are the Upper Deck Marvel Slingers Ant-Man and Giant-Man.

This year’s Christmas Toys & Collectibles Fair 2015 at the SM Megatrade Hall 2 ended up being a simple pick up run[i] unlike in year’s past.  The lines on the last day were sparse–the likely result of rolling in a little past 10 am–and I wasn’t complaining.  If you’ve had any experience in these types of events, you know the odds of being a sardine (you!) canned into a tin can are pretty high.

The Megatrade Hall eventually filled up, but by that time, I had made my rounds and was pretty much done.  Highlights included a used Batman: Arkham Origins PlayStation 3 Collector’s Edition Joker statue (2013), a MIB Troop Car from Hasbro’s Indiana Jones’ Raiders of the Lost Ark line (2008), AND a vintage The Real Ghostbusters Fire House Headquarters play set (1987)!

All very nice and overpriced.

I didn’t go home empty handed as I managed to pick up 4 West Coast Avengers comic books at P30 each, three Heroclix game pieces (e.g., Hydra Agent H, Hydra Annhil-Agent, and Beastboy [Dolphin]), several old Marvel Comics trading cards (e.g., Famous Battles: Evolutionary War, US Agent, Blood Ties: US Agent, and the Cosmic Cube schematics card from the Iron Man 2 trading card line.), and a couple of 2011 Upper Deck Marvel Slingers (e.g., Ant-Man & Giant-Man).

[i] Pick up and run – Bought 17 issues of old Marvel and DC Comics from a local online site prior to the convention.  Great way to get comics at a really good price!  Practical too!
