Melbourne Toy and Comic Con

 

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.  🙂

Weekly Update

Life has been very busy lately and we haven’t been able to explore around town as much as we like.  I’ve decided to start a weekly update post.  We want to stay in touch with our readers.  We want to recap our previous week and then glance ahead to what we have coming in the next week.

Last week we posted about two products: The Original Tweak Strainer and the Aeneontrue Frog Button Hooded Coat. I also created a post on my Top 10 Apps to Make or Save you $Money$.  You can click on the article title above if you missed it and would like to go back and read them.  I think out of the 2 products I really love the coat but the arms are very tight.  I also have larger arms so I’m not (cough, cough) “standard size.”  If you like easy ways to make or save money be sure to check out the list of apps I use.

Next week and going forward expect to see a pattern to the articles we release.  Every week we will try to include a list of apps or a review of a singular app.  We will also have 2-3 posts that are reviews of products, services, or places.  I recently ordered some interesting things online including a new silk boho dress, neon dry erase markers for my black goals board, cloth pads (with charcoal liners), bath bomb molds, mustard seed oil.  We also have 2 products to review that we already have: stretchable lace camisole, Mind Reader “Hero” 36 pod drawer system, and Skidders slippers.  I also have a new laptop on the way.
