About Steel City Con:
Steel City Con, also known as the Pittsburgh Toy, Comic and Childhood Collectibles Show, was held October 24th, 25th, and 26th. Celebrating its 19th year, this was the first time the show was held in a new location at the Pittsburgh Indoor Sports Arena. With 90,000 sq ft of convention space, Steel City Con now holds the title of biggest toy show in the United States.
Dealers at the convention were selling a myriad of products ranging from the obvious toys, comics, and related collectibles to some more unique displays including samurai swords, rare artist appearances, and screenings of soon-to-be-released movies. Celebrity guests included Ray Park (Darth Maul, Snake Eyes), Daniel Logan (young Boba Fett), Lou Ferrigno (the Incredible Hulk), Doug Bradley (Pinhead), and Richard Kiel (Jaws) just to name a few.
