  1. I saw that Joe page at a convention this summer and almost bought it myself. Nice pickup.
  2. Thanks to everyone who has posted pics! Does anyone know if Saul has an online presence? I don't recall ever seeing him at a Midwest show that I would attend.
  3. Anyone following tonight's Hakes auctions? They always have an nice assortment of collectibles. The artwork that stood out to me was the Marvel Star Wars #3 page by Chaykin. It sold for $26,000 + 18% buyers premium.
  4. I remember Comiclink sold a He-man magazine cover by Norem maybe 4 or 5 years ago. It had He-man battling Skeletor in outer space. I think it sold for around $2000 if I remember right.
  5. I have similar thoughts on the modern Transformers. I bought a few to hopefully get my young son involved in transforming them. So, we bought one called Transformers Unite Devastator (I think) for ages 8+. It was way too time consuming to transform it. He has no interest or patience to spend more than 2 minutes on it. The 1980s stuff, I could play and transform them back and forth. It may take 10-15 seconds to transform car to robot for example. When the transformations are so complex &/or time consuming it really can't be part of the play value. So, while I do like the look of the Masterpiece line for example, it would end up being a display piece on the shelf as I would find transforming it to be a chore.
  6. Anyone know what kind of comic dealer presence will be at this show? Dealer websites like High Grade Comics, Metropolis, etc don't mention they will be setting up here. Trying to gauge if it's worth checking this one out. Thanks.
  7. And, never has Spider-man faced such a devastating foe as "Fancy Dan"!
  8. Yeah, lots of the art accumulating on CAF is just nonsense. If there was a separate published and unpublished section, I think that could help make CAF more enjoyable to search.
  9. Man, still no floor plan. I look forward to checking it out prior to the show to remember the booths I'd like to check out.
  10. Pretty cool idea. Must be challenging, but rewarding when you find one.
  11. I think the Sal Sub-mariner cover is a really nice example. Will be interesting to see what it goes for.
  12. Auction is in Chicago, so I'm tempted to attend the live bidding for the first time. Does anyone know if you win an item with a floor bid (say a $2,000 item), can you pay for it right there and take it home with you?
  13. Wow lots of great pics. They are very clear too, so you can see everything in detail. Thanks for posting them.
  14. Albert did have the cover to 37, but he must have sold it, as it is in someone's CAF gallery as of last year.
  15. Both pieces are really great! I like Turner's use of bright colors on his Daleks work.
  16. Interesting, thanks for sharing what you know comiconxion. Certainly appreciated.
  17. You are right. I didn't give good examples of "semi" keys, as 14 is certainly a major key. .
  18. Some really nice books posted in this thread recently. I used to collect Silver Age Spidey, and sold most of my books probably 8-10 years ago. Now that I check out some recent auction prices, I'm surprised on how much prices have gone up for issues 1-40 especially for the semi-keys like 9,13,14, etc. Even low grade books are selling for much higher than I remember. I'd like to pick up a couple of my favorite issues again, but I see it's going to cost me.
  19. Wow, now that's a strong price! I guess I don't know that market, as I would have estimated under 12K.
  20. Williamson/Stevens/Garzon Return of the Jedi panel page up to $15,600 with auction later today ...
  21. Exhibitor list is up on the c2e2 website. Looks to be a good show as always.
  22. Wow, thank you for the info on the #10 cover! I'll contact Bechara to see if he still has it. Even if nothing comes of it, it is still great news to hear that the cover exists.
  23. Not sure on #2, but I know going back around 8 years i remember seeing Bechara with the cover to #3 (giant robot cover). Though #3 is now in someone's CAF gallery. Would be nice to see #2 if Bechara has it.
  24. I am the same way on the Joe vehicles. A loose example with a nice box is all I need. The boxes for the Joe line were almost as cool as the vehicle itself with the great artwork and file card / vehicle specs on the back.
