Hereâs what will be on offer to blow that hard-earned cash on: Madman will be there with the latest anime at bargain bin prices; Pulsar-Max will be selling sci-fi/anime figures; and The Gamesman will be selling games at rock bottom prices.

Weta Workshop will also be there along with their Halo Warthog â a Wellington Armageddon exclusive!
As usual, NZGamer will be there with the latest - and unreleased â games to check out. Although we canât say which titles will be there yet, you might say âWii are excitedâ. Keep it locked onto NZGamer for the official word later in the week. Sony NZ will also have a PlayStation 3 area featuring Gran Turismo 5 Prologue.
And to top that, two wrestling guests will be in action with Impact Pro Wrestling. They are of course ECW/WWE/WCW hardcore legend Scott âRavenâ Levy and WCW superstar Disco Inferno, both of whom will be signing autographs, then getting in the ring with the best of our IPW superstars.
