And of course they was loads of fun stuff such a Green Arrowed theme archery game, VR games, a whole floor as a video game arena, that looked so much FUN! Its the whole thing the team never got round to due to it being so busy!
They was the Optimise Prime truck alongside the Bumblebee Car, A Tardis and also some Star Wars sets.
They was so much to do including loads more stalls compared to last year they was 4 big screens so if you didn’t want to go over to what the pannels taking place in the M&S Bank Arena you could watch them whilst heading around the stalls.
However with Saturday being a bit busy they was some massive queues that made getting around the con a bit difficult at times however these things are bound to happen during these types of events, it was a boss few days so to the andswer our question was this the best Liverpool Comic Con yet?…HELL YES!
