Wrestling Legend Jake “The Snake” Roberts to attend 80s Toy Expo

While not specific to Transformers, as fans of the 80s many of us will appreciate this. Wrestling legend Jake “The Snake” Roberts will be a guest at the 80s Toy Expo on May 4th. Throughout his career he was known for his intense promos, dark charisma, extensive use of psychology in his matches, and has been credited as inventor of the DDT. A former WWF Superstar, Roberts will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame on April 5th to coincide with WrestleMania 30. He will be available all day for autographs and photos.

Also in attendance will be Alan Oppenheimer, best known to fans of the ’80s for his voice work as Skeletor, Man-At-Arms and Mer-Man from Filmation’s cartoon He-Man and the Masters of the Universe in addition to Warpath, Seaspray and Beachcomber in The Transformers. Mr. Oppenheimer will be available all day for autographs and photos.

The 2014 Canadian 80s Toy Expo will be May 4th at the Delta Meadowvale Hotel and Conference Centre – 6750 Mississauga Road, Mississauga, Ontario.

The show features a huge selection of vintage 80s toys and all the latest releases from today such as Transformers (vintage and Japanese imports), Super Heroes (Marvel Universe/Legends, DC Universe etc), Star Wars (new and vintage), GIJoe (vintage and modern), Masters of the Universe (vintage and modern),Wrestling, and tons of other Action Figures and collectibles.
