TFcon’s expansion to a 2 day convention was originally made possible through merging with the 80s Toy Expo on the Sunday due to many dealers completely selling out of merchandise on Saturday requiring a dealer room restock. This year is no different with the Sunday bringing us one of Canada’s largest dealer rooms for 80s toy related merchandise consisting of dealers selling Super Heroes (Marvel, DC etc), Star Wars (new and vintage), G.I. Joe (vintage and modern), Masters of the Universe (vintage and classics), Wrestling, Power Rangers, as well as Transformers (vintage and Japanese imports), and tons of other Action Figures and collectibles.
