Edmonton Collectible Toy and Comic Show

One week to go to the Edmonton Collectible Toy and Comic Show!

Are you excited yet? Because we sure are!

In addition to western Canada's largest dealer area and our special guests Amy Allen and Bob McLeod, we have some other great stuff lined up that you won't want to miss!


With the popularily of last year's ehxibits where we featured some incredible GI Joe and Transformers toys and original art, My Little Ponies, a great Barbie display as well as original comic and animation art, we plan to have an even bigger and better exhibit area this year! We'll be celebrating the 30th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back with a great display or theatrical posters and rare vintage toys from Kenner Canada. We'll also have displays of Star Wars Kubricks, Gremlins and more original comic and toy art!

Collector Panels!

11am: Independent comic creators Daniel Schneider, Jeff Martin, Bob Prodor and James Davidge will be discussing the do's and don'ts of independent comic publishing as well as discussing their current, must-read projects: Merc, Hell Inc and HEAT: The Space Age of Pro Wrestling, and The Duchess Ranch of Old John Ware, respectively.

Noon: A History of Kenner Toys with David Gaule. Illinois native David Gaule is a well-known vintage Star Wars collector and Kenner historian and we're pleased to have David at this year's event where he'll be discussing the history of Kenner toys; from well-known lines like Star Wars to obscure classics such as Milky the Cow!

1pm: G1 Transformers. Vance McLennan, who's incredible Transformers exhibit last year attracted a lot of attention, will be giving a discussion on the history of Transformers, from their start as a Takara toy line in Japan, to their Hasbro years and back to how the line finished off in Japan. He'll also be showcasing some very cool items from his collection!

The 501st Stormtrooper Legion, Badlands Division will be in attendance once again and will have some great displays planned for the kids and young-at-heart alike!

With so much going on at this year's show, you don't dare miss it!
