Do you like collecting toys? I sure do!
Hosted by popular YouTubers Billy and Jay, a.k.a. The Game Chasers, the DFW Toy Expo is returning to Arlington, Texas, home of the Dallas Cowboys and Texas Rangers. The show, where I will be selling my books along with various other items, will feature a variety of vintage and modern toys for sale from a variety of vendors. Everything from action figures to video games to Hot Wheels to comic books to Funko Pop figures and Pokemon will be on sale, and many dealers will be happy to look at stuff you bring in for possible trade or purchase.
Are you a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan? Did you grow up watching such cartoons as He-Man, The Transformers, and Tiny Toon Adventures? Do you have fond memories of endless summers when you had plenty of time to play Nintendo, swap trading cards, obsess over Star Trek and Star Wars, and in general have fun? Then you’ll definitely want to check out the DFW Toy Expo, where an adult can be a kid. Speaking of kids, this is a family-friendly event where all ages are welcome. There will be something for every budget, so you can dig through bargain bins as well as check out old, rare, and highly sought after “Holy Grail” items. Plus, admission is just $5!
The show promoters had a nice turnout back in January for the Retropalooza Swap Meet, and everyone I spoke with after the event said they had a great time. Billy and Jay are working their hardest to make the DFW Toy Expo even more enjoyable, so come on out and fills some holes in your comic book collection, look for that elusive Happy Meal toy you had as a kid, buy that LEGO set or model kit you’ve always wanted, or simply hang out with other collectors and pop culture fans and gaze in awe at the awesome collectables on display. Just remember one thing: set phasers on fun!
The organizers of the DFW Toy Expo value their customers and collector friends, so your health and safety are extremely important to them. Masks covering the face and nose are required for vendors and attendees, and they will have hand sanitizer available and observe other Covid-19 safety protocols.
