Calling all Ontario collectors! Toy show this weekend in Toronto

This Sunday, head over to the 11th Annual Action Figure Expo to get your collecting fix in the GTA. This show will have tons of cool stuff going on, including several special guests. Former professional wrestler Rocky Johnson (the father of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson) killed it on his own part in the 1970s and 1980s, and he’s here now to help you relive some WWF memories. Principal and seminal writer for the G.I. Joe comic-book franchise (and writer for other series such as Wolverine and Elektra) Larry Hama will be signing autographs and greeting visitors all Sunday. It’s the G.I.’s 30th anniversary this year, so what better way to celebrate?

The show will be held on September 28 at the Delta Meadowvale Resort and Conference Centre (6750 Mississauga Road, Mississauga, Ontario) from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. There’s free parking, and bring a toy donation for Toys for Tots if you want to get in early. The show will feature a huge selection of vintage 1980s toys, as well as all that’s hot now from the franchises of Masters of the Universe Classics, Star Wars, Transformers and the like.

Can’t make it to this one? Make note in your calendar of the Ontario Collectors Con on January 26, 2015. Don’t miss these important chances to connect with other collectors and industry heavyweights!
