Ontario Collectors Con 80's Toy Expo 2017
Are you one who is nostagic for the 80s? The time of funky rock n’ roll hairdos, the Cold War, and cheesy cartoons on Saturday mornings? Well your chance to take that walk down memory lane is coming soon.
The 80s Toy Expo is coming back for another year featuring a huge selection of vintage 80s and 90s toys and all the latest releases from today such as Transformers (vintage and Japanese imports), Star Wars (new and vintage), G.I. Joe (vintage and modern), Masters of the Universe (vintage and modern), Super Heroes (Marvel Legends, DC Universe), Wrestling, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and tons of other action figures, lego, comics, video games and collectibles.
The Expo takes place on Sunday April 30, from 10 am to 4 pm at the Hilton Meadowvale in Mississauga. In addition, the Expo will also play host to some interesting guests:
Veteran actor Keone Young will be in attendance to sign autographs and photos for the whole day. Fans of the 80s will remember him as the original voice of Storm Shadow in G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero. Star Wars fans now know him as the voice of Commander Jun Sato in Star Wars Rebels. Additionally Keone has been in too many movies and TV series to list here, but some of his roles include Mr. Wu in Men in Black 3, Henry Lin's Uncle on the FX series Sons of Anarchy, Mr. Wu on the HBO series Deadwood, Jeong Jeong in Avatar: The Last Airbender, Dr. Hido Takahashi on HBO's True Blood, and even played Hoshi Sato's father on Star Trek: Enterprise.
For you wrestling fans out there, WWE Hall of Famer "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan will also be there to sign autographs and take pictures. Known for bringing a 2x4 length of wood to the ring as a weapon and his battle cry "Hooo!", Duggan was the winner of the first ever Royal Rumble match in 1988. In WCW, he was a United States Heavyweight Champion and the final World Television Champion.
