The Melbourne Toy & Comic Convention is a small, family-friendly con located in Melbourne at the Auditorium. This convention is held twice a year. Rufo and I have been to the last 2 (October 2016/March 2017). On both occasions we’ve had the pleasure of talking to George Lowe (better known as the voice of SpaceGhost and other popular animated voice characters).
On both visits we’ve spent significant time talking to George and listening to his witty banter with other con-goers and vendors. We always are sure to purchase a signed print off of the table and get a picture with him. If you are in the area and are a fan of the show or any of the other shows he’s worked on I would advise you to stop by his table and have a chat.
This con features a small game and kids room, a few workshops and talks. The bulk of the con is the vendors. If you are looking for comics, toys, or POPs then you’ve come to the right place. Both times we’ve acquired some new art. This time we purchased the signed print from George Lowe, 2 Spiderman prints, Edgar Allan Poe – Raven, Tesla, and Ash v the Evil Dead print.
It isn’t an expensive convention so it’s a great way to waste a Sunday. There are always neat things to buy. I picked up a 3D puzzle of a praying mantis. I haven’t had time to assemble him yet.
If you are in town for the next convention, stop by – geek out a little. 🙂
