(Las Vegas)—This weekend, the Orleans Arena, inside the beautiful Orleans Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, played host to SuperToyCon, a convention composed of vendors, cosplayers, celebrities and more.
Taking place Friday through Sunday, the convention had two main sections: one for autographs, and one of the exhibit hall. The autograph area boasted some rather big names in the pop culture realm: WWE superstars John Cena and the Bella Twins, UFC Fighter and A-Team actor Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, the original Darth Vader- David Prowse, Star Wars and Heroes actor Greg Grunberg, and Flash Gordon himself, Sam Jones among others. Cosplayers were also present in the autograph area, with photo opportunities with cosplayers such as Ivy Doom Kitty and the ever popular Hip Hop Trooper.
Exhibitors carried everything from die cast cars to the extremely popular Funko POPs. Some exclusives were available as well, including custom POP figurines, die cast cars, and more. The Orleans was the perfect places to host this event, as it made it extremely easy for con goers to go directly from the convention floor, head upstairs, and visit the Century Cinemark to check out a flick or two. Being minutes away from the Las Vegas strip, it was an amazing location to bring fans from across the United States to.
