Popular Convention Exhibits in Lexington, Kentucky

The 3-day Lexington Comic and Toy Convention featured a number of fan-favorite exhibits, including adventurous Stormstroopers greeting attendees at the convention entrance.

The front door at 221B Baker Street, the London address of fictional detective Sherlock Holmes, was around the corner from Doug's booth.  He checked it out V.I.P. Night; on the weekend, there were long lines to take photos at one of London's most well-known addresses. In fact, more people may know of 221B than 10 Downing Street, the official residence and office of the British Prime Minister.

This Man o' War special edition Harley-Davidson motorcycle had a prime location in the Lexington convention center.

Man o' War won 20 of his 21 career starts during a 16-month stretch and was to horse racing what Babe Ruth was to baseball.  The stallion is buried and memorialized with a life-size 3,000-pound bronze statue at the Kentucky Horse Park, located outside Lexington, Kentucky.
