    Pretty good. Its mainly a dealer room, but they sometimes have a few guests. There weren't panels or anything like that in the past, but there were door prizes and raffles and stuff like that. Seemed like it was pretty well attended, and a good amount of dealers.

    Its especially good if you collect more than 1 line, and there's a heavy focus on Transformers, Star Wars, and GI Joe. I also saw stuff that's a little more exotic, like starcom, macross, and like chuck norris: karate kommandoes.

    There was also a pretty good mix of retro and new stuff, which was nice.


    As to why its in Toronto, I guess its just getting too big for that Burlington hotel, even though it was a nice place.

    Lol just a little farther down the 401, another 30 mins for you guys :D 


    Anyway, I was super excited about this because I already made a list of Transformers to buy for TFCon '10. But with the spreaded selection (I'm more TF fan than anything else by a long shot), I'll probably just wait till TFCon to grab what I want; more guaranteed. Good luck and have fun to those attending this expo!!
