    I don't think there's anyone young enough in Florida to care about toys.

    We used to have big one every February called the FX Show for many years, but it ran into trouble a couple of years ago and is no longer. Outside Megacon in March and the occasional big show like GI Joe Com or Star Wars Celebration, there is little but smaller local shows around the state.

    Megacon is probably the best if you want to see stuff from all different series. If you're a Star Wars fan, obviously nothing beats Star Wars Celebration.

    Tampa does a convention about four times a year. Here is the link:

    Tampa Comic Con

    Because they hold it so frequently, it's a pretty small show. I can usually walk through the whole show floor multiple times in an hour.

    From what I've heard, horrid mismanagement. THe last show was supposed to be delayed until October a couple years ago, but then it got cancelled altogether. I don't even know if the dealers all got their deposits back.

    THe one show I know of is put on by my local comic shop owner:

    http://www.facebook.com/pages/Dayton...09085789161874

    It's a small show, but there's usually a good variety of comics and toys; he has them twice a year, spring/summer, then fall (usually November). Got a fully functional New Adventures Skeletor electronic staff at the last one.
