Bring Vintage Toys and Dolls to the Las Vegas FX Toy-Buying Roadshow at Residence Inn Marriott March 13-16
Published on Fri, Mar 8, 2013 (12:23 p.m.)LAS VEGAS, NV - G.I. Joe might parachute in. Barbie may show up without Ken. Batman and Spiderman could provide security. Regardless of the guest list, it will be a blast from the past when toy-expert Joel Magee and his FX Toy-Buying Roadshow begins paying cash for vintage and antique memorabilia March 13-16 at the Las Vegas Residence Inn Marriott, 370 Hughes Center Drive.
As the founder of FX Toys, Magee will offer on-the-spot cash payments for popular toys from the 20th century and earlier for the hundreds of people who are expected to bring their childhood friends and hobbies to the Toy-Buying Roadshow in Las Vegas.
"Whether in perfect, unused condition or broken with missing pieces," Magee said, "feel free to bring your vintage toys and childhood memorabilia for a pleasant, hassle-free offer and selling experience without long lines or uncomfortable waiting periods."
Based on more than 300 toy-buying shows in the past 15 years, Magee said he can expect to see people bring Pez Dispensers, Star Wars and Beatles memorabilia, superhero figurines, baseball cards, 1940-60s comic books, as well as Shirley Temple dolls, Hot Wheels and Hummel figurines. "The types of toys and memorabilia that people dust off and bring to the show are too diverse to list. You cannot fathom the toys and games people have saved for decades," he added.An avid hobbyist himself, Magee maintains a growing collection of rare silkscreen posters, prop signs, and other related items from Disneyland in the 1950-60s.
The FX Toy-Buying Show wills be held March 13-16 at the Residence Inn Marriott, 370 Hughes Center Drive in Las Vegas, from 9:30-5 p.m. daily. Admission and parking are free. For toy or doll questions or for more information about the show, call 561-628-1990 and ask for Joel or send e-mails to firstname.lastname@example.org.
