Wizard Toronto Comic Con March 18th to 20th

Post by TK 3809 »

Name : Wizard World Toronto Comic Con
Location : 100 Princes' Blvd, Toronto, ON, M6K 3C3
Website: http://www.wizardworld.com/home-toronto.html
Dates : March 18th to 20th
Events include: Dave Prowse, Jeremy Bulloch, Peter Mayhew, Billy Dee Williams, Daniel Logan, Jake Lloyd, Anthony Forrest and Ray Park!

The 501st has been officially invited to attend Wizard Toronto Comic Con. There will be a huge Star Wars presence this year, so far there are Eight confirmed SW guests. The organizers would really like a big 501st presence as well. We will have the blaster range again this year, plus we are discussing other features with them such as droids and props etc.

We are working on getting passes for everyone who attends. However, you must troop at least 2 of the 3 days for at least a few hours in your 501st approved costume to earn the pass working the crowds, posing for pics and being a target in the blaster range. Those members who volunteer for manning 501st table, running the blaster range may wear their 501st shirts.

Here is the Wizard Travel info page for our out of towners
