ALBANY — Fanatics of all kinds flock to Wolf Road twice a year for Albany Comic and Toy Show.
The bi-annual pop-culture convention that features vintage toys and comic books returns to the Red Lion Hotel on Sunday, March 24, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Now in its seventh year, the show has become an habitual stop for all types of fans. Outside of the baseball card conventions that once use to proliferate throughout the area in the ‘80s, the Albany Comic and Toy Show caters to a variety of different fans.
The show features new and vintage toys. Vendors display items to purchase, all of which range from popular shows and movies. Star Wars, GI Joe and Transformers — toylines that date back to the ‘60s, but have also been revitalized over the years. There’s also the ever-present Barbie.
Along with a lineup of vendors, the show hosts professional guests that create comic books, comic book art, gaming card art, statues and action figures.
Cosplay has developed into a popular hobby over the past several years. Everyday fans have developed into serious costume designers, bringing favorite comic book and movie characters to life.
The show is open for anyone, of any age, who love to collect comic books, toys and all sorts of memorabilia.
