Question Dealers at the TV21 convention

I am in the process of creating the registration form for Dealers at the convention i.e. the people who will take a table and sell merchandise. The next step will be to send it out to potential dealers.

This is where you can help...

What type of dealers would you like to see at the con?

What type of merchandise do you buy?

Do you have any suggestions of which dealers you would like to see there? If you let me have their names and / or contact details, I send them a form when it is ready.

Any suggestions would be welcome. Either post your views here or email me at katie@fanderson.org.uk

Many thanks for any help.

Katie

For me the most important thing I'd like to see in the Dealer's room is classic collectible material associated with the Anderson shows (emphasis on classic).

Far too often when I go to events the only things available are more recent items that I can buy at any local store.

I'm pleased that Anderson shows are popular and that I can walk into HMV and buy (for example) Thunderbirds etc. on DVD. But personally I don't want to see that kind of thing at a convention. Not because I don't want to get it, but because I can get it easily at any DVD store.

What I'd like to see are the old annuals, action figures, crafts etc. from the 60's, 70's and 80's.

So, for me at least, the more old collectibles the better. New stuff is fine but I know that's available so I'd save my money for stuff I can't see elsewhere.

I agree - I always buy classic stuff at conventions. I also like seeing the expensive models, both characters and craft - although to be fair to the dealers, I only like seeing - the prices are usually out of my range.

Yeah cheap would be good too but some items are so fantastic its great to just see them closeup even if I can't afford them.

In a bi of a contrast, seeing as New Captain Scarlet stuff is so hard to get noadays more so than the classic stuff it seems.

Sure is there any sort of list of dealers available.

Considering the reaction to them on the Eagle transporter website i take it Product Enterprise may not be on the list?

We agree with the others - we'd like to see classic stuff, rather than everyday items that have been overpriced because they can! Anyone selling anything along the lines of Japanese rare books (ie Town Mook) and Aoshima models would be fantastic.

Many thanks for your comments and please keep them coming

If anyone has particular dealers in minds, please drop me a line. The forms will be available soon.

When we have dealers signed up, we plan to post a list of them onto the con website. We are working on the con website at the moment and plan to launch it in the next few weeks.

That's an interesting idea. I'll investigate.
