Dealer Profiles: James & Cindy “The Monster Guys”

Hey everyone!

We are less than a week away from the Fall NCTOYCON and we are going to continue the tradition of featuring dealers and what they’re going to bring this Saturday. We will be doing these posts all this week leading up to October 20th at the Crabtree Valley Hampton Inn and Suites  from 9am-5pm!

Our first profile features James and Cindy of “The Monster Guys”. They set up at our first show and have set up at various toy shows throughout the state for many years. They always have a great selection of monster and kaiju based figures from many different eras and they have been saving some of their best stuff for this show!

Below are some of the pictures of what they plan to bring:

BAF Parts Swap by Turbines to Speed

We are almost a week away from our fall NCTOYCON on October 20th! One new experience at this show is going to be a BAF Parts Swap led by James O’Briant from Turbines to Speed.

It will take place near the entrance to event at 2pm. Bring your spare BAF parts and trade with others to complete that Build A Figure thats been missing pieces for too long. Here are some of the pieces that James will be bringing to trade.

This should be a fun activity at the show and be a chance for different people in our toy collecting community to come together and complete their Build-A-Figures!

 

Dealer Profiles: One day left!

We’re only one day away from the first NCTOYCON, all in all we are looking to have over 25 toy dealers selling collectibles across the spectrum! Today we’re going to have a multi dealer profile post showcasing some of the different things dealers are bringing!

First up is The Collectors Caravan! They’re newer to the toy dealer scene, but they’re bringing some cool stuff!

Next up is Debbie Yeargan, she is new to toy dealing, but she’s bringing some really cool stuff! She is “clearing out the attic” with all of her daughters 80’s toys which includes She-Ra, My Little Pony, Cabbage Patch Kid, and more!

Last up is one of the co-founders of our show John Lebel. A well known toy dealer in the Triangle, John has been selling toys for over 20 years and is his full time job. He has a constantly rotating inventory and has something fresh and new for every show. He recently acquired a huge transformers collection and will be bringing it to NCTOYCON!

Dealer Profile: Keith Hilton

Our next dealer is known by just about every toy collector in the area, and has been selling toys whether at the flea market or different toy shows for over 20 years. Keith Hilton has a seemingly unlimited supply of amazing toys at every single show, and always has reasonable prices.

For many toy collectors, Keith’s booth was a destination trip every weekend of the flea market.  He has recently scaled back his flea market appearances, but he still does toy shows, and he will be at NCTOYCON. He’s bringing Vintage & Modern Star Wars, GI Joes, Transformers, Mego, Wrestlers, Lego and more!

Here are some pictures of the different things he’s bringing!

A sealed Fright Zone playset!

Sealed Star Wars Landspeeder.

USS Flagg Parts

Rare Funskool Super Cop Rescue Squad set

Modern Star Wars sets

Flavor Flav action figure.

Dealer Profile: Blake’s Toy Chest

Our next Dealer Profile features one of the youngest dealers around, but Blake Edwards has an old soul.  He’s got one of the widest range of genres/eras for toy collectors, selling toys from the 1800’s through today. Blake has been selling toys since he was 9 years old, set up at his first show at 12, and started his own toy show in Salisbury at 16. If there were categories for Toy Dealer Child Prodigy it would be him. He always has something for everyone, and always has fair prices. We’re so happy he’s setting up at our show, and be sure to check out his own show coming up later this month!

Here are some of the awesome things he’s bringing to NCTOYCON!

Some,  cardedTMNT, Super Powers, Visionaries, Power Rangers, and more!
