Throughout the day there will also be planned features including presentations on the toy brand, guest Q&A panels and features.
There is also a custom competition and a cosplay contest too.
There will also be a range of traders attending the event, including:
All The Cool Stuff
Mayhem Attack Traders
Toyz & Gamez
With respect to exclusives, last year we produced a range of exclusive show products which were popular as nothing like that has ever been done for a UK show and this year will be no different.
This years exclusive has not been revealed yet (the Kraken Bio-Armour was last years), but there are hints on the website page giving clues as to what it could be.
Tickets are on sale now, but have limited availability, so advance booking is reccommended.
Weekend Tickets £26.00 each
Saturday Ticket £16.00 each
Sunday Ticket £16.00 each

It would be great to see as many of you there, a lot of work has gone into this for the UK community, which is a little fragmented at times. These things don't happen by themselves and don't carry on without support and interest, so this is a great way to get together and show strength in something we all enjoy
All the best,
