How many dealers or tables do you plan to have?

Where and when will the event be held? How much is admission?

EVENT HELD AT ST-LAZARE SPORTSPLEX, 1850 RUE DES LOISIRS, ST-LAZARE, QC J7T 3B4. SUN., SEPT. 09, FROM 9AM TO 4PM. ADMISSION $8 (CHILDREN 12 & UNDER, FREE). 25% OF THAT WILL BE DONATED TO THE VETERANS HOSPITAL. WE HAVE SPENT A LOT OF MONEY PROMOTING AND ADVERTISING THE SHOW AND HOPEFULLY, IN THE FUTURE AS THE SHOW GETS POPULAR, WE WON’T HAVE TO SPEND AS MUCH SO THAT WE CAN DONATE MORE. OUR GOAL IS TO SUPPORT LOCAL CHARITIES WHERE FUNDS ARE NEEDED MOST TO HELP PEOPLE IN NEED.

Why did you decide to create such a show? How did this come about? And why in this area?

WE HAVE ATTENDED AND PARTICIPATED IN MANY SHOWS AND MET MANY DEALERS ALONG THE WAY AS WELL AS PRIVATE COLLECTORS AND DECIDED TO PUT ON A SHOW IN OUR AREA AS WE DON’T HAVE ONE. THERE ARE MANY PRIVATE COLLECTORS IN ST-LAZARE AND SURROUNDING AREAS. WE THOUGHT THIS WOULD ATTRACT MANY PEOPLE INTO THE CITY. WE HAVE BEEN WORKING ON IT FOR OVER A YEAR NOW. THE VERY FIRST THING WE DID WAS COMMUNICATE WITH DEALERS AND COLLECTORS TO SEE IF THERE WAS AN INTEREST, AS WELL AS LOCAL RESIDENTS AND BUISNESS OWNERS. THE REACTION WAS HUGE AND RECEIVED A LOT OF POSITIVE FEEDBACK.

Do you also collect items personally? If yes, what do you like and collect personally?

WE COLLECT ANYTHING OF COLLECTABLE INTEREST. FROM COMIC BOOKS, COINS, MILITARY, ANTIQUES, TOYS, ETC..

Anything to add about the upcoming show?

HOPING TO SEE YOU ALL ON SEPT. 09, 2012  AND BRING YOUR FRIENDS TOO!

Sideshow Presents: HAN SOLO IN CARBONITE

One of the most enduring images from the Star Wars franchise is Han Solo suspended between life and death, trapped in Carbonite. And now, Sideshow Collectibles–creators of what might be the best-looking, highest-qualilty figure and statues out there–has brought the frozen Han from the silver screen to your display shelf.

As usual, each piece is hand-painted and numbered and every detail is captured perfectly. Impressively, the statue also includes some great light-up effects including a light from the base to illuminate the block itself, side-panel lights and an awesome third effect that lights up to simulate the super-heated melting process that frees Han. You can also take the frozen smuggler off the base and display him on your wall. This piece is a pre-order and will be shipping in the 4th quarter of this year! Reserve yours now!
