Cars, and characters, and costumes - oh my!

Have your say

One of the largest collections of cars from famous movies will be coming to Magna this month, as part of a cult action movie and sci-fi event.

Optimus Primte, from Transformers, KITT from Knight Rider and cars from the Batman, Fast and Furious and Jurassic Park franchises will be amongst the star attractions at this year’s Ultra Con on Sunday.

Ultra Con is a major event on the convention calendar for comic, action movie and sci-fi fans and collectors. As well as the cars, it will feature a parade of iconic super heroes, villains and sci-fi characters; life-size movie sets from Star Wars, Dr Who and Iron Man and other cult movie props. There will also be a vendors’ arena selling film and TV memorabilia and celebrity guest stars from the world of sci-fi.

Rob Ormondroyd, Ultra Con organiser, said: “We’re different from other conventions in that we create an immersive sci-fi environment cosplayers, comic fans and collectors; this year is going to bigger and better than ever.”

Dan Tupling, marketing co-ordinator at Magna, said: “It’s great to have another convention added to our armoury following on from the success of previous cult events.”
