Fan Event Attendance 006: Toronto Comic Con

Now here is a well-spent Sunday morning in Toronto last March 9, 2014. The weather was fine and it was my weekend off- the "geek god" must have blessed me on this day.

Taking A Tour Around The 1980 Mego Batcave

This... is not mine. This belongs to a friend who is a sucker for vintage toys specifically on comic book superheroes stuff. What's astonishing about vintage collectors is that they always take you to a tour back in time just by allowing you to stay in their "collection room". The 1980 Mego Batcave had me drawn to stay longer and take photos on what's apparently just thin hard plastic assembled together to create Bats infamous hideout.

...and here's the kitchen.

Being the mainstream toy collecting guy such as myself never expected to like this figure... or rather playset. The feeling I got was more of an awe for this very old piece than amazement. Now I know why some collectors dig for these kinds.
