SHould i bring the kids, can i expect discounts, should i bring stuff to trade or is that "taboo", whats the attire, etc.? just trying to be a little prepared and we really want to have a good time, there's just not alot of info on it (probably cuz it's the first one) so i figured i'd ask the pros. Thanks in advance!
Calm down, young grasshopper. xD
First, relax. Think of it as a theme park, if you will. I'm sure the kids will be fine (I'm assuming their older than "screaming infant").
Discounts, I'm not so sure about, but you will find dealers aplenty of toys both old and new!
Trade? Yes! One of the dealers is having a "parts-night" in their hotel room the Friday before the convention proper. Check their website for details.
Attire? Be comfy. I'll be wearing a Darth Vader getup for some of it, so comfy is thrown right out the window for me!
Again, I'd highly recommend you check out their website. It'll tell you about all the events going on, the special guests, and what kinda dealers you can expect to find!www.savcon.net/
Hope to see you there!
