Just in time for Halloween! The Knoxville Toy and Comic Expo is coming to Chilhowee Park in the Jacobs Building. The event will feature toy and comic book vendors from across the nation selling classic and vintage toys from the past century and comic books from the 1940s to present day. The event takes place Oct 10-11.
While organizers are continuing to attract more vendors and TV and movie actors, at least two actors from the sci-fi and horror genres have agreed to appear to sign autographs for the legions of fans expected to turn out.
Felix Silla, the diminutive character actor, will be a free signer as will actor Tyler Mane. Silla is best remembered for many roles including Cousin Itt on the “Addams Family” and as the Ewok that was flying on a hang glider in “Return of The Jedi.”
Actor and former WCW wrestler Tyler Mane is best known for playing “Michael Myers” in Rob Zombie’s Halloween & Halloween 2. In addition, Tyler played the part of Wolverine’s nemesis “Sabertooth” in X-men.
The Expo offers collectors and sellers an opportunity to meet and sell collectible comics, non-sports cards, anime, toys and movie and TV memorabilia. The Expo still has some booth space available and tickets to the event are currently on sale.
