BBP! Guide To Fan Expo Canada 2017: Day 3 #FXC17

Two days of Fan Expo Canada have passed, and you’ve been a good little pop culture soldier.

Perhaps you’ve got a full weekend pass. Perhaps this is your first day in line. Either way, today is giant-sized Saturday – and the Metropolitan Convention Centre kicks it up into its highest gear today!

Certainly the busiest day of the four day convention, Saturday, Day 3 of Fan Expo Canada, offers up a whole host of challenges and opportunities. Your adrenaline, for one, will be coursing through your body like you’ve never experienced. But you’ll need to be a pro, and temper that enthusiasm with the knowledge that you’ll most likely be in some long lines. It’s a natural occurrence and the real test is how you can deal with that pressure.

Pro Tip: go to the bathroom early. 10 AM to 7 PM makes for a long day.

Still, it’s all worth it, as you’re bound to bump into friends you know, and the exhibitors start talking with an aim to sell product. Some of the biggest programming events are today as well – and you can find all of them here in Day 3 of Biff Bam Pop’s Guide to Fan Expo Canada!

For the first time in fifty years, we can witness “The Power of the Daleks,” meet me after the jump for my review.

Dammit Jim! Star Trek is Fifty!


“Live long and prosper.” That was Spock’s  Star Trek catchphrase, words immortalized in Leonard Nimoy’s deadpan delivery, matter-of-fact, with hidden layers of emotion. And boy, if anything has lived long and prospered, it’s the Star Trek franchise. Six TV series with a seventh on the way, and thirteen films. It’s hard to believe it all started way back on this day in 1966, fifty years ago. Read the rest of this entry

BBP! Fan Expo Canada: Day 4 Guide (Sunday)

Fan Expo CanadaToday is the last day of the 2016 version of Fan Expo Canada. Hopefully your body has held up because there’s still a lot to do today.

With it being a long weekend, many have set aside this day to bring their kids. And of course, the cos-players are still out in full effect at the convention, and those that thought they had enough yesterday are coming back today because they’ve realized that do want that one last thing, after all.

That makes Sunday, the fourth day, a pretty busy day inside the hallways and room of the Metropolitan Convention Centre.

Me? I’ve done my scouting over the last few days. And now I’m looking to hit some of the vintage vendors for some old time comics and graphic novels. Things that tickle my fancy, things to add to my collection.

So, from 10 AM to 5 PM today, here’s what Biff Bam Pop! thinks you should be checking out on Fan Expo Canada Day 4:
