If your parents never bought you that huge, expensive playset for your birthday as a kid or you wish you held onto some of your favorite childhood toys, Retro Con, held annually at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, Pennsylvania, will give you a second chance in both cases.
The ever-growing two-day event, held Sept. 27-28, expanded to a larger room this year containing thousands of old and new toys, video games, arts and crafts, and much more. Guests included James Rolfe, the Angry Video Game Nerd, and Robert Remus, former professional wrestler Sgt. Slaughter.
