Get your geek on at Collectorabilia

If you've got a love for retro gaming and geek culture, the Collectorabilia event on Saturday September 19 promises to satisfy all your nerdy needs.

The very first Collectorabilia, held in March, proved to be impressively popular, with more than 1,000 buyers looking to get their hands on a wide range of rare and desirable items from times gone by.

This success has seen organisers Retro Events return to the Marriott Hotel in Leeds, with an even larger number of sellers with a huge range of games, toys, Lego, anime, comics, action figures, Pokemon and Star Wars goodies for eager collectors young and old.

Retro video games consoles and their associated paraphernalia play a big part of Collectorabilia, with old and custom Sega and Nintendo hardware and software on sale, along with gaming merchandise, clothing, artwork and even jewellery.

You'll also find toys, figures, trading cards and more dating from the '70s to today, meaning you'll find everything from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Thundercats to He-Man, Transformers and more. Basically, all the stuff that was much cooler back in the day than it is now.

Plus, no geek event would be complete without comic books and you'll find plenty of sellers with a large selection of Marvel, DC and anime titles to add to your collection too.
