Japan’s HollyCon Ushers In Second Year With Guests Of Honor Robert Englund And Sean Astin

By May 14, 2013

Haven’t heard of Hollywood Collectors Convention (HollyCon)? Well, you’re gonna.

Now in its second year, HollyCon is the first Comic Con-like gathering held in Japan with this year’s Guests of Honor Sean Astin (The Goonies, The Lord Of The Rings) and Robert Englund (V, Nightmare On Elm Street) holding court in panels and meet and greets during the two day event in Tokyo’s Grand Palace Hotel last May 5th and 6th.

Japan usually has more of a Gojira problem but if Stay Puft wants to mess with Tokyo, they’re prepared

If these pics from the event are any indication, Japan has their own steady supply of Otaku (nerd or geek) and just like everywhere else in the world, they come in all shapes, sizes and ages!
