Metro Unleashed comic-con style geeky convention / event
We’ve been out and about again this week at another comic-con style geeky convention/event right by the Metro Centre in Newcastle-upon-Tyne (which was kinda unfortunate timing since a 16ft sinkhole opened up on the A1 the night before so there were quite a few tailbacks getting there).
A few celebrity guests there… Taylor who played Oola, Jabba’s doomed dancer from Return of the Jedi, Paul Blake who played the equally doomed Bounty Hunter Greedo in Star Wars and a few more.
There were other attractions too including an actual 12 foot long dinosaur entertaining throughout the day (Daisy the dinosaur from Jurassic Parties). And 8 foot tall Transformers Bumble Bee and Optimus Prime from Autobot’s Entertainment. And of course a whole load of cosplay which always makes these things fun – with a costume competition courtesy of North-East Online Magazine.
A display of costumes and props including the awesome Bat-Pod from Super Heroes Cosplay, which made its debut at this event and life size R5-D4, R2-D2 and other props provided by Star Warz for Hire.
Some great costumes and help and advice on costuming brought to you by The Rebel Legion, and The North East Avengers if you fancy a go – and over 80 tables of trading stuff featuring everything including Comics, Toys, Collectables, Art, Games, Hand Made Geeky Crafts, Lego and so much more.
See a few of our photos below of what you might expect at the next one…
