The Nerd Explosion #3 – 7th Ultimate Hobby and Toy Fair (With Pics and Video)

Here at JTM Games, video games arent the only things that we go crazy for. Comics, graphic novels, movies, action figures, you name it, we probably love it.

I’m sure you guys have some kind of hobby that you’re absolutely bonkers for. And that’s why the guys at Cherry Bomb Toys have kindly organized the Ultimate Hobby & Toy Fair in Victoria, BC Canada. I gotta tell ya, it was a blast! So many action figures, collectibles, comics, lego, cosutmes were at hand. An of course, it wouldn’t be complete without video games.

This annual fair gave Victorians a place to hang out, enjoy, and share their hobbies with others who love the same things they do. People came in with their kids, friends, family and basically had a great time. Some came as their favourite characters; specifically from the Star Wars universe.

Hobbies that were present at the Fair:

  • Video Games
  • Collectible Action Figures
  • Comics/Graphic Novels
  • Trains and Diecast Cars
  • GI JOE (YO JOE!!!)
  • Star Wars
  • Transformers
  • Vinyl Records


They even had door prizes, silent auctions for collector’s items, contests and games that everyone enjoyed.

Many thanks to the businesses that came and made the event successful: Cherry Bomb Toys, Victoria Costumes, BC Shavers, etc…

There will be another Hobby and Toy fair in October so keep checking and I’ll let you know as soon as I find out when.
