Take a break from toy shopping at Retro Con to play some classic video games, either individually or with a friend! We plan to have a wide selection of classic NES, SNES, and other game cartridges set up at the show on multiple tables. A high score competition may also be a possibility!
Mega Toy Fan has been one of the larger toy dealers at both Botcon & NJCC for years and now Retro Con is proud to say we have them too! James Szewczyk, one of the owners of Mega Toy Fan, will also be a sponsor for the show!
For you retro fans that buy autographs from Larry Kenney during Retro Con, you’ll now receive a lenticular Thundercats Lion-o ring still sealed in package from 1985! (limit one per attendee) The toy was originally released in a Burger King fun meal. We have a limited supply though, so make sure you jump on those autographs! =)
Prepare yourselves for temporal displacement! Retro Con takes you back to the future this November 11th with the a replica time machine DeLorean! Flux capacitor, Mr Fusion, time circuits… it’s all here! Fans will be able to get their picture and pose with the car for charity!
