If you can, do not miss this show. The setup was only part way done, and it looks superb. All in one large room this year, but a really nice variety of stuff showing!!

Why does it say that it's open on July 14th & 15 2011? Last time i checked, it's 2012.

If you've not been yet, go early tomorrow. We went at about 11am today, the parking lot was full and there was about an hour queue (in the sun, no shade) to get in. Buying tickets online will save about 5 mins of queuing at the ticket booth.

Definitely worth going, there are some great exhibits. My favourites are the steam-punk Star Wars sets and an absolutely amazing 600 seat circus. TLG is also there, playing Ninjago and showing off the new B-Wing (actually looks better than I thought from seeing pics).

Tried to get in at 12:30 today, was going to have to wait till 1:00 for tickets and then until 2:00 to get in. Since it closed at 3:00 my wife and I decided not to wait, we're going to have to get their early next year. I hope the show is successful and they can afford a larger venue next year.

I went this morning and it was well worth it. I agree the circus moc was the best. I also liked the midi Han solo in carbonate with light effects. I couldn't believe how many people came. They need a bigger venue next year for sure if it's going to be in T.O. again. Check it out if you can
