    Default Australian Conventions & Collector Fairs for 2020

    A listing of major Collector Fairs and Conventions in Australia that might interest toy collectors here, or be a likely meet-up event. It includes links to official sites, and/or to a meet topic started on this site (be aware that links to meets in the meet-up section is ONLY accessible by verified "Basic" members).

    If you know of any upcoming event not listed here, post about it here, and one of the Mods of this section will update this listing.
    And feel free to start up a meet topic if you are going and wanted to meet up with other fans while you are there.

    Most links should give adequate directions and times, but if you need extra help or want to ask what will be at a particular event, feel free to ask here. If there is something related to Transformers at an event, it is likely to be posted here, or in a separate news topic.

    There was a Malvern Toy Fair on today. I went and had a look nothing particularly for me there and came away with nothing.

    Some sellers had TFs but not many, and it was a mix between G1 junkers, Movieverse stuff and some more exclusive boxed items. One seller had a few BW toys of various completeness states. Only one seller had 3rd party Kos (and the obvious sort - some 3P MP Conehead KOs not the old G1 replica KOs)

    This has now been called off, and they note that the next one in Brisbane will be November.
