You can check out the official website for more info!

And coming up even sooner is the Montreal Toy Con–it’s a little out of the way for downtown-dwellers, taking place in St. Laurent’s Courtyard by Marriott Hotel, but if you’re looking for the best new and vintage comic, toys and collectibles, this is worth the trip!

The Montreal ToyCon Part 3: The Toys!

Well, since we’ve already seen the guests, we can get to the meat of the show. What was there? Who was there? Well, we can answer both questions…

First of all, for a complete list of the dealers who showed at the con, just visit the Convention website to see who was there, or maybe to get connected to the awesome toy-sources you may have missed if you didn’t get to the con!

The Montreal ToyCon Post-Con: QueLUG!

Yes, the Montreal ToyCon has come and gone! If you were in attendance, here’s hoping you were able to find what you were looking for and, if you missed out, you can try to catch us next time, probably sometime this fall. It’s a small convention, but there are few places better for hidden treasures. (Personally, I picked up a Mr. Pink action figure, Batman: City of Crime and the Princess Bride’s Dread Pirate Roberts) But it isn’t just about the toys: there are also two groups that make the con even better, and here’s a look at who we got…

The Quebec LEGO User Group (or QueLUG) has been a presence at every Toycon thus far and they’ve outdone themselves yet again with some truly awesome displays of…Legoism? Lego-ocity? Truly awesome displays of Lego talent. As always, we were happy to have them enriching the whole ToyCon experience with their meticulous-yet-creative designs and can’t wait to see what they bring us next time!

For now, here’s a look what they had with them this time around…
