If you have been keeping up with our social media pages over here on Rad Robot than you have probably seen the non-stop talk about Coleco Expo! A few months back, Lee and I were invited by Coleco themselves to come join them as a vendor for their convention this summer and there was no way that we could pass it up. Coleco is one of the pioneers of gaming dating all the way back to early 1980's with their gaming console simply titled the ColecoVision which was able to give us classics like Donkey Kong! So to be invited to a convention hosted by Coleco was impossible to turn down.
What is Coleco Expo?
Coleco Expo is a huge gaming convention that will mostly be focused on retro games and pop culture.

Tickets will be $20 for each day or you can take up the 2-day pass for only $35!
What is Rad Robot Doing Here?
Rad Robot is an art company, so what are we doing at a retro gaming convention?? Well, Rad Robot over the past few months has only been growing and becoming a bigger company everyday. So when new opportunity's are given to us that we believe will only help the brand, we take it.
So having a table at Coleco Expo is truly a treat. We will be there all day Saturday and Sunday selling everything from our hilarious prints, to our fun and loving stickers. Lee will also be doing on the spot commissions of anything that your little heart desires.
So if you will be attending Coleco Expo this weekend, make sure to stop by and say hi! Lee and I will be located in Artists Alley at Table 50. We hope to see you guys there!
