You’d better have your costumes ready, because Fan Expo 2016 is fast approaching. From September 1st through 4th, the Metro Toronto Convention Centre will be transformed into a fan paradise. Whether you are a sci-fi, horror, anime, or comic book fan, there will be something for you. This year offers some last-chance experiences, including the final Canadian appearance for the great Stan Lee.
The list of guests and events for this year is long and impressive, including many actors and actresses from Star Wars, Star Trek, Doctor Who, Daredevil, The Walking Dead and more. The expo will also feature voice actors, comic book artists and writers, anime voicers and animators as well as game designers and developers.
Some of the most well-known names include the previously mentioned Stan Lee, but the event will also feature Mark Hamill, William Shatner, Kevin Smith, Adam West, George Takei, Frank Miller, and Kevin Conroy.
In addition, there will be myriad attractions, including the 1966 Batmobile and the time machine from Back to the Future. There will be Q&A sessions, exhibitors and 40,000 square feet of fan shopping to be had. There will also be a cosplay masquerade, and Sunday is Star Trek Cosplay day, so make sure to set your phasors to stun. The 501st Legion will be there and there will even be some workshops and seminars so you can learn more about anime, cosplaying, and more. There will even be some fan speed dating for those single folks.
Tickets are available on the Fan Expo website and start at just $25 in advance. You can also find a full list of guests and attractions on the expo’s website.
