AFJ was invited to attend to Retro Con 2018. This is one of our favorite cons of the year. It is loaded with awesome toy dealers, cartoon voice-over actors, great cosplayers, and above all it is close to AFJ Headquarters. This year, we decided to pick a random action figure (one that we regret not buying earlier in 2018) and hunt for it. In the process, we ran into several Junkies, saw some great toys, and above all we had fun! Thanks to Tony and Rose, who organize and host Retro Con for allowing us to participate in the Con. We will definitely see you at Retro Con 2019.
Above you will find our toy hunt for the Star Trek's The Traveler. Below you find Cosplay photos and some choice toy items we spotted at the Con! #AFJ4LIFE
