Sci Fi game and toy convention next week!

In case you're living in the southern part of Sweden and are not aware of it - next weekend 2-3 April, is the annual Sci-Fi game and toy convention taking place in Malmö. As usual you get a bunch of washed up actors signings photographs - but the main attraction is the complete nerd Christmas atmosphere with all the vendors of stuff you don't need but end up buying anyway like movie posters, weird DVD movies, old games, comics, old dudes selling Star Wars toys from the 70's, movie props exhibition. Usually there are a few contests in which you can participate to win games or movie tickets. You have people dressed up as Darth Vader and Stormtroopers waltzing around and the atmosphere of nerdy joy is so thick you can cut it with a knife.

This is the only convention I try to attend every year beside the miniature wargaming conventions I sometimes go to - and it is worth the trip especially if it's your first time, which can be a bit overwhelming haha.

I'll probably bring my camera and take a few pictures of the place when I go there on Sunday, hopefully the place won't have been picked clean of the good stuff by then.

If you don't live near Malmö then this convention also takes place in Göteborg and Stockholm annually at various dates each year. It's pretty much the same from what I could then visiting the convention when it was held in Göteborg one year.

Attached below are a few pictures from last years Sci Fi convention in Stockholm to give you an idea of what it looks like and what to expect in Malmö next weekend.
