Last Sunday was the Midwest Toy Soldier Show. Here is my review of the show. I did a post about the room trading last week. If you missed that you could check it out over here, Midwest Toy Soldier Show 2022 Review ~ Part one Room Trading.
The crowd for the show was good. It wasn’t the biggest crowd that I have seen. But it was one of my best for selling. From 10am to around 1pm the foot traffic was consent. After that it died out. I had fun talking to fellow collectors about my new products and the hobby.
We start the review with Atherton Scenics. John brought a bunch of his foam terrain pieces. I am using slide shows on some of my pictures. Some of them you can click on the arrows on the side to see another picture in case you didn’t know.
David Cook of MicShaun’s Closet had plenty of the TSSD bagged figure sets. He also had Russian plastic figures, LOD/Barzso toy soldiers and foam terrain pieces. Plenty to select from and at good prices.
Scott Canday had plenty of Vintage playsets and Willy Pickett had his custom painted play mats.
Scott Campbell brought some figures that he had painted to show me. I like the choice of colors he uses and the style also.
Here are some random pictures of the show.
Fellow collector named Curtis had a table next to me. He was selling a bunch of vintage toys.
There was a collector that had a diorama of Custer’s Last Stand in 1/72 scale.
Nate’s Garage Toy Soldiers has some amazing custom-made toys.
Rick always brings with him some amazing vintage playsets and plastic toys solders.
Rich also brings a lot of vintage playsets and toy soldiers. He usually has some Barzso or Conte products. He is a great person to deal with.
Doug Wood had this Conte Roman Galley for sale.
Here are more random pictures of the show.
Besides the main room there were vendors in the hall. This year there were more collectors and vendors room trading and selling at the show. Maybe next year they could expand upstairs!! Not everyone brought toy soldiers. There were some vendors with action figures, comics, historical books and die cast cars.
Rob Hornung also had some amazing custom creations. The knights that he had with looked awesome. He sculpts, casts and paints his figures. They are made out of metal. The cost of the mounted knights ranged from $95 to $125.
Mike still had some of the original Barzso products for the show. He almost sold everything the first two days prior with the room trading.
Morehouse Military Miniatures had some nice resin cast and wooden home made wood products.
Paul had the amazing Russian painted miniatures with him.
Rusty from Plastic Playset Magazine was at the show. You can read more about the magazine at their website, http://www.playsetmagazine.com/.
More pictures of the show.
Here are some great pictures that fellow collector Ricky Cowell took.
Julie from Treefrog Treasures had a bunch of metal painted figures.
Francis Turner had a bunch of Marx Playsets and vintage toy soldiers.
More random pictures.
I had two tables at the show. Besides my own line of miniatures, I had Barzso/LOD resin figures, LOD plastic toy soldiers, Warhansa & Publius figures and some foam terrain pieces. I set up a little display of my products and some prototypes.
That is it for the review of the show. Like I said before I had a good time and can’t wait to return next year.
There is a Toy Soldier Show in New Jersey on April 23rd. I never been to this show. I hear it is good.
Here is the first set of French Marines that I will be adding to my online catalog next weekend. I took some pictures of them primed. I hope to start painting these soon.
The miniatures are scaled about the same size as the Barzso figures. Each set will cost $42. I will take some pictures of the second set next week.
May 1st is the 14th Annual Gettysburg Toy Soldier Show. I will be there with my line of miniatures, Barzso figures, vintage toy soldiers and some foam products. You can read more about the Gettysburg show here The Gettysburg Toy Soldier Show 2022 or http://www.mwtoysoldier.com/.
Well, that is it for now. Thank you for reading.
