There is something for every fan at Calgary Expo.

Re: Calgary Expo This Weekend!

I checked it out today. The amount of Legends Hulkbuster BAF wave figs was awe inspiring. LOL. And at $20 each you know they aren't from Hasbro Canada.

That said I did buy a Thanos wave Cap'n Americhuk, because I know finding him in the wild will be nigh impossible with the amount of deviants about. At $20 it didn't sting as bad as it will on ebay in a month or two.

Damn, that's not too bad. I'm looking for one too, so if anyone else finds a spare for $20, I'd gladly appreciate it.

You rule Dan! - or if you can find the BAF piece- that will work too.

Thanks!

Re: Calgary Expo This Weekend!

Sorry but I didn't spot any more Caps, and I gave the Vendor floor a fairly thorough going over. A few Mk. 43 Iron Men and Batrocs, not so much for the rest. Saw a few Absorbing Man BAF figs in the $30-$40 range, no Gwens. It's scary how quickly stuff got picked through.
I have to admit though, I avoided stalls that had higher prices.
$30 for a Spider-Man legends Boomerang? Sorry, not going to bother looking.
BAF pieces where just Thanos' head is $15? And another $15 for the the left arm? Whatever.

martens, there may have been an Aquaman in there somewhere, but I didn't check the boards before I left home so I wasn't looking for him. Odds are if he's popular/hard to find, scalper prices would be what they're asking at the Expo.

$80 Ahsokas? They had several. Bastards.

Re: Calgary Expo This Weekend!

Awe that sucks, but thanks for checking, I really appreciate it. I'm sure one will come up eventually. I even thought about picking up another IronMan and give Thanos 2 of the same legs haha

Those prices are insane...

Re: Calgary Expo This Weekend!

There are deals to be had there, but mostly older stuff. Picked up a DST Star Trek 40th Anniversary Enterprise for $30! The first two waves of Aliens Minimates (16 figures) for $75, a Black series Darth Plagueis for $15, and Two LOTR Minimates 4 packs for $10. Also picked up a bunch of Marvel Essentials books for cheap. I would call that pretty good for a month, never mind two days.
