Metrocentre Comic Con

Comic Con Comes to Metrocentre

Get ready for a blast from the past as Comic Con comes to Metrocentre

Head down memory lane at Metrocentre’s very own Comic Con taking place on 23 and 24 March. There’s nothing like making new memories by visiting old ones!

Get competitive with a series of classic, old-school arcade games such as Dance Stage and Air Hockey. Then queue up with a wave of nostalgia at the hand-cranked Gashapon machines and treat yourself to a surprise mini toy capsule.

It wouldn’t be Comic Con without a chance to snap a picture with your favourite superhero – statues of course. Although, with the optional cosplay dress code, you might just stumble across a friendly Spiderman and Harley Quinn battling it out on the Jurassic Park Arcade game. 

Why not take this chance to dress up as your favourite childhood character and maybe spot a doppelganger during the event?

Not only will there be life-sized statues of iconic comic book characters, but Metrocentre will have Christopher Nolan fans swarming the area with their showstopping Batmobile. Definitely one that you won’t want to miss!

Wander around the array of fun, unique stalls filled with rare collectables, POP figures and exclusive merchandise. You may find that vintage comic book you’ve been looking for by scouring the stacks of memorabilia and books at the trading stalls.

No need to stop your shopping spree early at the trading stalls, as you can find your way to Be More Geek and MenKind in the Upper Blue Mall to further browse their shelves of film and gaming merchandise.

A nostalgic weekend to note for your March diary, perfect for comic fans, families and friends to get together.

Metrocentre is open on Saturday from 9:00 – 19:00, and Sunday from 11:00 – 17:00.
