About the Show:
The Edmonton Collectible Toy and Comic Show is a family-friendly one-day, annual event that caters to Edmonton‚?Ts large toy and comic book collecting community and the young-at-heart alike. The show is now in its eighth annual year and is proud to call the Shaw Conference Centre home after two very successful years there. There will be over 25,000 square feet of exhibit space where Western Canada‚?Ts finest vendors will be offering up a wide variety of collectible toys, comics, video games and more!
In addition to all of the great collectibles at The Edmonton Collectible Toy and Comic Show, the event organizers are proud to announce that two special guests will be in attendance and signing autographs this year:
Perhaps no Jedi Knight in the new Star Wars films is as captivating as the blue skinned Twi-Lek, Aayla Secura, the character played by Amy Allen in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones and Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.
Bob McLeod got his start working with Marvel Comics in 1973 and is perhaps best known for co-creating the New Mutants with writer Chris Claremont. Bob has worked as a cover artist, penciller, and/or inker on every major title in the biz including Action Comics, Conan the Barbarian, Spider-man, X-Men, Thunderbolts, GI Joe and a whole lot more!
A number of local, independent comic book creators, the 501st and Rebel Legions; two worldwide groups of Star Wars costumers (www.badlands.ca
) will also be present at The Edmonton Collectible Toy and Comic Show. Edmonton is home to some world class collections and this year's event features exhibits of rare toys, posters and original production art celebrating everything from the 30th Anniversary of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, GI Joe, Spider-man, Gremlins and more! Our popular Collector Panels also return with discussions on the history of Kenner toys, Transformers and an independent comic creators panel.
The Edmonton Collectible Toy and Comic Show is pleased to be working once again with The Edmonton Food Bank.
About the Edmonton Food Bank:
The Edmonton Food Bank provides food to people in need throughout the Edmonton area.

Attendees who bring a donation will be eligible to enter to win one of several door prizes donated by our sponsors and vendors including Coney Island Candy, Happy Harbor Comics, Hasbro, Paramount, Warner Brothers and Lucasfilm Ltd.
