Photos from the 11th Annual SSCC FIGURECON




We had a great time this past weekend at the show! Tons of great displays put on by the club and a great selection of vendors with all of your 1:6th scale needs!

The club especially appreciates the following board members taking the time to get up from behind their computer desks and actually making the trip to see the show in person:

Andrew (crusader1xxx), Ben (original paintbrush), Bryan, (bjones), Chuck, (hansalbin), Mike (mickeyfin), Phil (granatwerfer)

We hope you enjoy the photos and be sure to check it out in person next year!

Re: Photos from the 11th Annual SSCC FIGURECON

I can only say it again, the pics don't do the show justice. I really enjoyed *every* 1/6th display I saw.


-Mike's War Correspondent display with the figures was impressive enough. But he had a whole nother 1:1 set-up with a veteran's lot he picked up. It included a field manual for an Engineer who helped cross the Bridge at Remagen and had amazing photos.


-Mike & Phil's Korea set-up was also fantastic. It caught my eye immediately when I walked in. The pics don't translate the size of this thing. And more 1:1 gear to boot to support it.


-Wes's figures were amazing. The Russians in Stalingrad (based on the well-known photos), the Monte Cassino FJ's, the SIG field piece - all amazing. And damn, he had some great deals on his stuff for sale. I picked up a recent Toys City German set for only $50. And my son picked up some weapons from him as well.


-Dick & Cory's 12th SS Recon was amazing as well. Took up practically the whole middle aisle. I didn't even bother to count all the motorcycles. And the DAK stuff was amazing as well.


-Fred's Airborne guys were top notch as well. It's hard to tell from the pics how much detail and what great gear he re-worked with them. And having a real Airborne patch and parachute swatch was top notch!


-Cindy's figures may have been my favorite. I talked to her for a few minutes about how much effort and detail she put into them. Every single figure pretty much had Battle Gear Toys items, like leather boots and brass bullets, etc. Some were head to toe BGT. She just loves the vintage Joe body. And man, she had a ton of WWII figures, WWI and Western figures.


And then the deals. Frank as always: carded sets for a steal, tons of loose gear and bashed figures (seriously - groups of DML insignia for just a $1!), boxed figures, etc. Cory also had tons of loose items in tubs, Toys City sets, tons of boxed figures (Buy one, get one 1/2 off) and he always has a ton of Newline stuff. He also had a ton of vehicle accessories and vehicle kits too. The dealer from Indy, AP Collectibles, had a ton of rarer WWII boxed figures, esp. from DID.

I could have spent more, easily. But I had too much fun watching my son buy more loose items than me.

Re: Photos from the 11th Annual SSCC FIGURECON

Thanks for the compliments - glad you guys enjoyed the photos!

Jamie - being in Spain, and our show being across the Atlantic in the United States, you are exempt from my rants about collectors online who do not actually get up from their computer desks (or more likely, out from behind their smartphone screens), and show up at an actual event.

HEHEHEHE...

Thanks for the compliments guys!

We had a great time!

Fred
