So 49ers fan said he was going to invasion dublin this weekend. I was disappointed with the number of stalls when i went 2 years ago. was wondering if they have improved in that area. When i went there was like 5 and only 1 was selling star wars action fig. I was going to see if i could do a stall myself but at 660 for the weekend it was just out of my league.
As for myself i collect all sorts of action figs. But these day i tend to sell more then i collect. Really concentrating on robot and droids at mo. Have a nice r2d2 and c3po collection going as well as my old childhood favourite ZOIDS

i was at invasion dublin last year and there was about 8 stalls [including a guy from up north who took both euros and gpb] and ALL were selling starwars,wont be going this year but i imagine it would be the same....zoids,there is a real blast from the past,are they the original 1980s zoids or the recent versions?

A word of warning: Vintage Zoids can get expensive pretty quick. Quite a lot of international color,tooling, variations.

ESP the Japanese market.

Mint in Box or Display case

Title say it all really. I have recently started to buy the 3.75 inch Marvel Universe figures, I am getting the in the boxes (cards) But I would love to a case full of them.

Is it really worth keeping them in there packaging, I have no aims to sell them on. This would be great (http://www.joblo.com/newsimages1/com...isode-iv-4.jpg) but I do not have a full room to devote to the collection.

Oddly though I am going to collect the DC 52 Jim Lee figures and not take them out of the box.....yet.

Even if it doesn't involve increased monetary value...packaged, unopened, toys will usually move quicker than opened ones.

I collect the Marvel Universe ones myself and theres about 5 maybe 6 that go for mad money Vision, Warpath(black and Silver), Blade, Classic Havok , and Iron Patriot(osbourne variant) Rest of them have been rereleased multiple times so lost any value they had , I open all mine and display them comes down to personal preference really
