Kameha Con, the first ever Dragon Ball convention, was held two months ago.
It was the same venue as Dallas Comic Con, so I was already intimate with the building and layout of everything. Very intimate.
At the entrance was a very impressive balloon. I’m surprised it wasn’t damaged at all, unless they made a bunch of these and quietly replaced them every hour or so.
I met up with Tapes from the Crypt after a panel (briefly saw and met Kendamu as well), and we checked out the dealers room.
The dealers room wasn’t limited to Dragon Ball stuff, and a lot of the offerings were similar to what one would find at the regular comic con (even some of the same vendors).
There was a lot of fan art for sale.
And a Saiyan space pod for photo ops.
It seemed like these were everywhere. Leftover Hot Topic stock?
I get super nostalgic seeing the Irwin action figures (especially in their original packaging). Such a good toyline, doing all the minor characters like Raditz and Chi Chi, but so hard to find now.
Wow, $20 for these? No thanks.
These are cool, but were also more than what I’d want to pay for.
Not into action figures? No problem – they had plushies too!
I wanted to get something Yamcha-related, but all I could find was a drawing on a post-it note and one of these Lego figurines.
I did see the infamous “dead Yamcha” figure but it was table decoration. Someday I hope Yamcha’s corpse will decorate my table.
Now we’re talking. Bins!
VHS and DVDs for the physical media aficionado.
There were, of course a lot of Funko Pops for sale, but these gory customs were pretty cool.
I didn’t really spend much time here, but it was cool to see all the voice actors.
There was a Frieza-themed information board on one table detailing actor Chris Ayres’ fight with COPD.
