This past weekend was Anime North 2012! It’s an anime convention held in Toronto, Canada. This is my first time attending a con so I had no idea what to expect. My goal is to find Sailor Moon collectibles of course! I saw quite a few things, some old some new, but nothing too exciting. I wasn’t sure if I was allowed to take pictures in the dealers room so I only managed to snap a couple shots!
In the first picture are some Irwin dolls, the seller wanted $60 each for the taller ones, which is way overpriced! In the second picture are some animanga & artbooks. Prices: $450 for Materials, $350 for Vol. V, $250 for Vol. IV, $200 for Vol. II and $150 for Vol. I. Once again insanely overpriced!
Other items I saw at Anime North:
- Sailor Moon DIC Card Game $50
- Irwin keychains $7
- Sailor Moon Button Men: $1
- Sticker sheet: $1
- Gift bag: $3
- Stars Manga: $8
- Japanese SuperS playing cards: $5
- SMW gashapon: $50 each figure
- GE wall scrolls: $20
- GE body pillows: $45
- GE wallets: $20
- GE drawstring bags: $20
As you can see a lot of items were overpriced, but I was still happy to see Sailor Moon items in person! Some of the new GE items you can buy cheaper on eBay but when you take shipping costs into consideration especially for 5 gigantic body pillows, it’s actually slightly cheaper at the con. Thankfully the sellers were nice and held my items until the end of the night, there was no way I could carry 5 body pillows + 3 wall scrolls with me! Overall it was a fun experience, I think I would want to go again next year!
