Event Director Bill Geradts says he’s thrilled to be bringing the expo to the city. “To say we’ve been looking forward to being hosted by our Hamilton fans is an understatement; we’ve waited a long time to bring Armageddon to Hamilton, and we’ve got some cult icons from the small and big screens coming to Claudelands to be part of it,” said Geradts.

Celebrity guests currently headed to Hamilton and Wellington include stars from the Twilight films including wolf pack duo Tinsel Korey (Emily) and Bronson Pelletier (Jared), along with Volturi vampire (Demitri) Charlie Bewley. They’ll be joined by iconic Matt Frewer of Max Headroom fame as well as Paul McGillion (Dr. Carson Beckett) from Stargate Atlantis and John Levene (Sergeant John Benton) from the Classic Doctor Who series. Armageddon is looking at additional guests to join these amazing actors, so stay tuned.

Alongside him, the creators of New Zealand’s biggest online comics publisher, Beyond Reality Media are releasing their first hard cover book ‘The Complete Inspiration Duncans’ exclusively at the expo.

Whether a participant or just an enthusiast, the realms of Cosplay continue to be a ‘must be seen to be believed’ attraction of Armageddon. The colorful Cosplay Parades, Cosplay Games, and Kamehameha Competitions are endlessly entertaining for both fans and spectators, and 2012 is the first official Trans Tasman Cosplay Competition, proudly presented by Trinity Treasures.

Gamers will love the hugely impressive stands of PlayStation and Dell computers at Armageddon, a showcase of the latest in gaming and technology, while anyone that loves movie memorabilia, toys, guns, swords or costumes will be fascinated by the array of exhibitor stands and stalls that form the backbone of the Armageddon Expo.

From it’s inception in 1995, the Armageddon Expo has grown to become the largest fantasy event in Australasia. With shows in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, Melbourne and now Hamilton it’s clear to see the Armageddon Expo continues to embody the ever growing pulp culture phenomenon.

“Armageddon is a real melting pot of Twilighters, anime enthusiasts, comic collectors, Transformers fans and cult tv show devotees all mixed in and generally having a fantastic weekend” says Event Director Bill Geradts.

“We see trends come and go, but with ongoing rise of festivals like ours, being considered a ‘geek’ is now more acceptable than ever – it’s even considered to be pretty ‘mainstream’ and cool!” says Bill.
