If you’re in Toronto this weekend be sure to check out the Toronto Comic Con at the Metro Convention Centre as you will see fans in all shapes and sizes. My brother is a storm trooper in the 501st Legion who have pulled out all the stops this year. We had Darth Vader, Tie Fighter Pilots, Snow Troopers and of course Kylo Ren, Rey and Finn Cosplays galore.
As awesome as they were though, me and Eoin had to head over to the autograph section to meet Casper Van Dien from Starship Troopers. He pretty much stole the show as when signing autographs and taking photos he would do it in character. You could hear him shouting at people from the other side of the hall and people find it hilarious… and a little intimidating.
We braved the abuse though and got our photo with him and the biggest surprise was how he basically hasn’t aged since Starship Troopers; he looks EXACTLY the same! There is clearly some kind of sorcery afoot but either way we left happy as you can see below.
