My Top 2013 Conventions

2013 was a great year for Toy Conventions and one of my goals this year is to attend more cons and have one helluva time!

2013 was a great year for me. I was able to exhibit my toys and joined in various contests. And I would like to share my top 5 events I have attended in 2013 be it toy convention, press launch etc. long as it has comic books, toys and geekiness.

I have excluded HEROCON2013 since I'm an active member of the board. :)
