The Toronto Fan Expo is the most anticipated event of the year in Canada for fantasy fanatics of all genres, from comic books to video games. Fans from all over the world flock to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre dressed as their favourite characters in some of the most elaborate costumes you are ever likely to see. Splash is no stranger to this event as it has been representing exhibitor companies there since 2006. This year Splash MM was called upon by both Warner Brothers and PlayStation to help set-up and run their massive, attention-grabbing booths.
The Warner Brothers booth featured a Game of Thrones display where fans could line up to have their picture taken on an enormous throne constructed of interwoven replica swords with an authentic king’s robe. Everyone who lined up also received complimentary swag in the form of stickers, t-shirts and action figurines being handed out by our lovely Splash girls. Also on display at the booth were all of the latest Warner Brothers video game releases for patrons to try out before they are released to the general public.
Just down the expo hall was the PlayStation booth which featured an enormous 60’x 20′ wall display of the PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royal characters as well as feature titles scheduled to be released in the next few months. Splashers were on hand giving out expert, inside knowledge on the latest releases as well as giving away awesome swag including action figures, free PlayStation Plus memberships and Shox Speakers! Some titles on display were complete versions just waiting for their release date to arrive, while others were still in production with only a short teaser available for eager fans to test out. The most notable titles on display were PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royal, God of War: Ascension, Little Big Planet Karting, NHL 13, Madden 13 and many titles for the PS Vita.
