According to a recent press release sent to The Joe Report from Michael Milstead of the DFW GIjOE Collector’s Club, plans for a second official DFW GIjOE and Action Figure Show have already been confirmed and the date and place have now been set. Here’s the intel so far…
“The DFW GI Joe and Action Figure Show is back for 2013! The members of the Dallas / Fort Worth GI Joe Collectors club are extremely pleased to announce our second official show. Both the attendance and the overwhelming positive response received from the 2012 show far exceeded the clubs expectations, so we figured we’d do it again.
So what’s changed? Well, we’re changing our venue and doubling our vendor space. Table cost will be $50 each before September 1st, and will then be $65 after that date. Booths will be $110 for a three table U shape sales area. The booth price will increase to $140 after September 1, 2013.
For those of you that are interested in reserving table space you might want to do that sooner rather than later as we’re already starting to receive requests from individuals who want multiple table space/booths and we sold out early for the 2012 show.
As the name of the show states, this show is just not solely about GI Joe in his various incarnations or size but about his action figure brethren as well. So, no matter what your taste in action figures you’ll be able to find it at the show.
The convention hall appears to be a definite jump up in size for the 2013 Show. This year’s event looks like it will be BIGGER and BETTER in every way. Hoo-EEE! Here are the show’s specifics as provided by the DFW Club:
When – Saturday, September 21, 2013
Where – The Grapevine Convention Center
1209 South Main Street
Grapevine, Texas 76051
Time – 10:00 – 4:00
If you have any questions please feel free to E-mail Michael Milstead at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to participate in this show as a vendor please contact Keith Holmes, the show organizer, at email@example.com.
All GI Joe and action figure collectors are welcome and admission is just $5.00 per person at the door. Family admission will be $10.00. Boy Scouts in uniform, Military, Police, Firemen and other Law Enforcement Personnel will be allowed in FREE with a current and valid ID. For all of the up-to-date information check out the DFW GI Joe and Action Figure Show Facebook page.
Bottom Line: This is a “Must See Show” for all GIjOE and action figure fans. And with a bigger hall, more dealers, and more collectors attending, it’s bound to be even MORE fun than last year’s event! So mark your calendar now—and don’t miss it!
