Las Vegas ToyCon 2019
March 1-3, 2019
Las Vegas, Nevada
by Veronica Nunez
I attended Las Vegas ToyCon in 2019 which was being held at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino. I had previously attended ToyCon in 2016, but it was called Super ToyCon at that time and was held at the New Orleans Hotel and Casino. You can read my 2016 recaps here. The name changed to Las Vegas ToyCon with the 2018 show, which I didn’t attend.
I had purchased a 3 day ticket from Groupon, but we only attended on Saturday. I hadn’t noticed much in the way of panel programming so I just went to get some autographs on two of my Geeky Jerseys. I added two more signatures to my Darkside jersey. The first signature on this jersey was from David Prowse at Super ToyCon in 2016.
I also have a limited edition Bumblee jersey from Geeky Jerseys which I brought to have the voice of Bumblee in the Michael Bay films, Mark Ryan, autograph for me. He was very kind and spent some time chatting with us and threw in free selfies if we wanted it.
This show is very small and it’s focus is on vending and celebrity autographs/photo-ops. Each show usually has a special ToyCon edition Hot Wheels toy so I made sure to purchase one and a couple of ToyCon t-shirts as well.
Las Vegas ToyCon 2020 is March 13-15, 2020 and will be held at Eastside Cannery Casino-Hotel, which I had never heard of until this convention was announced. Groupon has great deals on tickets for Las Vegas ToyCon (search Las Vegas Toy and Comic Convention) if you’re interested in attending.
The small size of the convention will allow us plenty of time to do other things while we’re in Las Vegas such as seeing the Tim Burton Exhibit at the Neon Museum.
