Ryan Dunnison works in the video game industry. Ryan's collection of vintage video game consoles are driven by his fascination with the little-known history of Vancouver's own video game development, which dates back to the early 1980s. Ryan's collection celebrates second-generation video game culture; he restores the consoles that he acquires from game stores, garage sales, and thrift stores.

Eric Fell is a collector, writer, comedian, and actor. Eric created the smash comedy The Critical Hit Show and is one third of Vancouver’s movie enthusiast show The Gentlemen Hecklers. Both productions have gained a loyal following and international acclaim. This event features Eric's collection of Kenner's Star Wars action figure line from the 1970s and 1980s.
