RETROCON 2012! a PA con

Postby shapp » Thu Nov 08, 2012 6:55 pm

So I found out about this awesome Con called “RetroCon”. It’s Sunday November the 11th at the Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks PA. It’s only $14 to get in and runs from 9am till 5pm. This Con is pretty much all late 70’s through the 80’s cartoons and pop culture. Some of the people that will be there are the voice actors that played a few of the 1980s Thundercats, the voice actor that played the G1 Bumblebee, and a bunch of artists and such as that. Anyone that is in the area should totally come check this out. Some of the awesome door prizes are some retro T-Shirts, a SDCC Exclusive Bruticus combiner from Transformers, another SDCC tformer fig, and the crème de la crème, a G1 Optiums Prime with box that has been painted to match the RetroCon colors and logo. This is going to be super rad people.

figured this would be a good place for this as it revolves around cartoons from the 80s

That looks like fun!!
Kinda undecided on the Prime prize, i'm edging towards how could they do that to a vintage prime, i'd much rather have a plain one.
So wish they had more stuff like that over here or at least close enough for me to get too.
