The Nerds Vs. The Eighties - Retrocon Toy and Media Convention

This convention is a great chance for some of us to revisit our childhoods... or celebrate an era where He-Man WAS the Master of the Universe, Optimus Prime was only animated, Marty was desperately trying to get back to this time period, and if you were in trouble, you might hire the A-Team or enlist Michael Knight to help you out.

The convention opens at 9 AM.  I will be working a dealer table, but feel free to use me as a meeting point to get the members together.  Here's more info on the show, or visit the site www.retrocons.com:

A retro toy Convention in south-east Pennsylvania that centers on the seventies, eighties and nineties! We also spotlight the talents, the movies, the games and cartoons from that time period!

Put together and run by the fans!

Guests include 3 voice actors from Thundercats, you can get your picture taken with a DeLorean Time Machine, the Angry Video Game Nerd will be in attendance, you can play retro NES consoles plus DJs will be playing the hits of this time period all day long!  The Philadelphia Ghostbusters will be there, plus Garrison Carida (of the 501st Stormtrooper Legion - Vader's Own).

-------

Lots of geekiness to go around.

Tickets are $14 at the door and prizes will be raffled off throughout the day.

Hope to see many of you there!

    For those who wish to find me, you might be able to ask at the admission area where to find me. Otherwise, look for the dealer wearing the IT Crowd shirt. I'm available for all Standard Nerds.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
