The Colorado Springs Comic and Toy Con is back. The biannual show, now in its eleventh cycle, offers local pop culture fans a chance to congregate and hawk their wares.
This summer’s con will host more than 100 tables filled with toys, memorabilia and comic books. Vendors from all over Colorado, as well as from several nearby states, will have toys, comic books and art for sale.
“This is lining up to be a really fun con,” said con founder Clint Randolph. “The Embassy Suites just finished a huge remodel and there is a lot of open space that will be filled with comics, toys, art, and much more. I hope everyone that attends these cons can put their real life on hold and come step into a fun filled fantasy land. It's supposed to be fun, so come and enjoy. Hope to see you all there.”
The 501st Legion, a well-known group of “Star Wars” aficionados who dress up as Stormtroopers, Biker Scouts, and Tusken Raiders will be in attendance to pose for pictures with visitors. Two separate costume contests, one for kids 12 and under and another for adults, will be held Saturday.
