Arizona Toy Con

Overview

Arizona Toy Con is a pop culture convention in Glendale with a special focus on collectable toys, though it's gone through some name changes.

It was founded by Neil Kotler as the Phoenix Toy Show, which ran for some years at the Shadow Mountain Gymnasium. In 2014, it became iCon, to reflect a strong growth potential, but was trimmed back down to the Arizona Toy Con in 2016.
