    For those of you in the GTA the Canadian National SciFi Expo is comming up. Of Star Wars interest Billy Dee Williams will be there. Here is the link to the site. As the show gets closer they always add more guests. http://www.hobbystar.com/sfx/

    This is going to be from August 23-25, at the Toronto Convention Centre on Front Street. Tickets will be $18 Canadian per day, or $35 for all three. So far, Billy Dee Williams is the only Star Wars actor announced, but other non-SW guests include:

    Brent Spiner (Data - ST: TNG)
    Nichelle Nicholls (Uhura - Star Trek)
    Kane Hodder (Jason Voorhees - Friday the 13th series)
    John Billingsley (Dr. Phlox - Enterprise)
    Nicholas Brendan (Alexander Harris - Buffy)
    Andy Hallett (Lorne - Angel)

    I for one, want to meet Jason in the flesh, as well as Billy Dee again.

    Hey all.

    Unless you are going to specifically meet Billy Dee Williams (at $30 per autograph!) or the other guests, or love comics and/or anime, this is an overpriced waste of time.

    Between parking and the $18 admission, the day comes to $30 just to go inside and look around.

    The toy dealers had the same old stuff. The few that carried newer US exclusives were of course scalping big time ($150 for Sacul!?)

    And, to make things worse for me personally, Kane Hodder (Jason Voorhees) is a last minute cancellation. There are usually surprise extra SW guests, but this year only Billy Dee.

    If this doesn't significantly improve next year, I have no interest in going back. :fume:
