London MCM expo broke the records this may with over 122k visitors attend MCM London Comic Con’s star-studded event - with star guests such as Felicia Day, Gillian Anderson, cast from popular Arrow series in attendance.

Even with 122,634 visitors passing through the doors of Britain’s biggest modern pop culture show MCCM pulled the stops with their queuing system and maximum waiting time was 20 minutes which was a massive improvement!

Popular buys were a coin flip between Alpaca plushies which started as a rare find now can be located on most stalls with different accessories, At the moment Lovejojo is selling them %05 to make room for new stock - spoil yourself here.
 

The second star buy was the Pop figures which are slowly taking over the world. With thousands of characters from comics to TV series and now anime anyone can enjoy these figures and most people are collecting them like it's a compulsion! Average price starts from £9.99-15.99

Running over a full three days the Excel London event featured everything from movies, videogames, comic books, indie artists, anime, manga and cosplay (including popular cosplay guests including returning favourite Jessica Nigri and Kelly Jean).
