These are the two what I am actually holding out for at the con:

Transformers Masterpiece Grimlock
Transformers Masterpiece Megatron

These are what I'll probably end up buying as well:
Gundam kits
DVDs and Blu Rays
Posters
Girlie figures
maybe manga?

Really? You buy DVDs at the convention? I always find better deals online...

Swap meet has netted me some great deals. 50 bucks for all of the original Pioneer Release DVDs of Trigun? Hell yes! Same for gundam wing. I know this forum pertains to the dealers room, but I tend to lump both swap meet and dealer's room shopping into one thing.

If I can find one for $20, I will buy the Kotobukiya figure of Asato from Lamento.
They had it at AX and the original price sticker said $20 but the darned dealer jacked up the price cuz it was selling well. (I got there after the price hike; I could see the original $20 price sticker under the new sticker.)

Yes, it's all part of the game.  Last year I asked the dealer how much he wanted for an Asuka figure.  His price was about $5 higher than what I expected.  I returned the next day and saw a sticker w/ my intended price.  I then bought it.  But it can work both ways.

Just don't piss them off.  Also last year some buyer went crazy all called the dealer something he shouldn't have for changing the price on an item.  The dealer got offended and threatened to kick the guy out of the Con. 

GokuMew2: those Lamento figures are really cool.  I bought my Rai figure last year w/o knowing what series (actually game) he came from.  It cost about $35 fyi.

Oooh, Rai~! He's the other figure I wouldn't mind having but Asato is really the only one I'd spend my money on. (And of course Asato is usually the one that's sold out.)

Lamento is a BL game by Nitro+chiral. Wonder if they'll come out with any figures for sweet pool, their latest game...

Yeah, that's usually why I do the majority of my shopping on Monday...dealers price stuff to sell more often on the last couple days. Only times I buy things on Friday or Saturday is if I really want to get my hands on something I know is going to sell fast.

But in this instance they were jacking up the price over the weekend. .^^;;
Maa... It was at AX, not Fanime. Wonder if they'll be at Fanime. I don't remember the booth name but they pretty much only sold figures and had a huge cage of a stall where all the merch hung off the shelves of the cage.

having recently really got into Gundam 00, I'm also going to be on the lookout for a Dynames model and the portrait series figures of Allelujah and Lockon.

There was die-cast metal Hyaku Shiki with a Mega Bazooka Launcher at Fanime last year it was a
bit pricey and I didn't buy it but during the last day of Fanime a guy I met bought it and it was really awesome. So I'm going buy it this year I just hope they will have it.

Go for 1/100 scale. The Added Detail is marvelous compared to the 1/144 scale. I also recommend getting an Over FLAG as well. That kit is so much win.

thanks for the tip - I'll be on the look out for that particular model in the dealer's room ^^. last gundam model I built was a Deathscythe Hell custom XD but I'm eager to get my hands on a Dynames model and have another go at it.
