WinterCon 2016: "The Road Warrior" Reunoin

Perhaps the coolest thing that happened at WinterCon 2016 was The Road Warrior reunion. That classic is one of my favorite movies of all time, as well as being one of the greatest sequels ever made. It's the rare one, that actually tops its classic first film.

As such there was lots of cosplay from the film (I think there should be more Road Warrior cosplay, personally speaking) and the franchise, as a whole. The cosplayers posed for pics around the props from the movie. Directly below are pics of the props:

The reunion included many of the major supporting characters and main antagonists of the cult classic. The actors present were:
Bruce Spence (The Gyro Captain)
Vernon Wells (Wez)
Kjell Nilsson (Lord Humungus)
Emil Minty (Feral Kid)
Virgina Hey (Warrior Woman)

What was really cool is they that they joined the cosplayers for some kick ass pics!! How often does that happen? Not nearly enough, if ever, I say!
 
 
I got to meet and interview a couple of them. Those posts are coming soon, in the meantime here I am meeting the very friendly and awesome Kjell Nilsson who played Lord Humungus, one of my favorite villains ever, and one of my favorite characters in the entire Mad Max universe!
