Montreal Toy Con, Sunday, June 8th 2014
« on: February 12, 2014, 01:47:40 PM »

Hi everyone!

Just giving you a headsup that the next greatest toy show in Montréal will be on June 8th 2014, at the Marriot's Courtyard, from 10am to 4pm.

As for every year, admission is only 5bucks, and kids under 5 yrs get in for free.

To anyone who has never been at this show, it's a fun show to attend and a great place to find toys and collectibles. There's over 50 dealer tables, but don't be fooled by this number, because there are dealers that are specialized in several action figure lines, too many for me to name. It's an event by collectors, for collectors, and also a great family event, lots of toys to find for your loved ones, and it's all organized by the very awesome people at Toys On Fire.

I insist on the fact that they are awesome, because I've been to several shows out in the Montreal area, and it's rare to still pay a 5buck admission for a 1 day experience that is as near as cool as the Montreal Toy Con. Unlike for any other event in the greater Montreal area, they've come to show that it's still possible to maintain a humble formula that works, as well as sparing the extravagent admission fees that come with bigger conventions.

So if you have nothing special planned on that day, and you do love action figures, it's worth to check it out (hey it's once a year right? ).

Being just off the highway, I'd say it's easier to get there by car.  It's not so bad by metro (but you'll then need to take a bus and walk for a bit).

The hotel usually has lots of free parking. If it fills up, there is a small mall and cinema just across the street that has lots of free parking, so we're covered.
