Montreal Is Hosting A “Retro Gaming & Cartoon Festival” This Month

I think we can all agree that the 80's were the greatest decade for video games, cartoons, comics and toys.

And there's one event in Montreal where you can experience all the awesomeness the 80's has to offer.

G.I.Joe, He-Man, Transformers, Ninja Turtles, Nintendo, Star Wars, Mega-Man, you'll find all these and much much more at the Retro Expo Montreal.

The classic gaming festival will be packed with comics, toys, cosplayers, anime, action figures, famous comic book artists and even old school video tapes spread across over 80 different booths.
