What can you expect to see at Pyrkon 2023?

Cat and Dragon and… exhibition

Dragons, cats, a pony, a Pegasus, a firebird, a post-apocalyptic hedgehog, and rogues in rabbit form from the distant land of Zasne. If you are curious about these wonders, take a moment to visit this year’s exhibitions!

The artworks presented by Małgorzata Gorii Lewandowska were created from her own ideas as well as inspired by the fantastic worlds crafted by authors such as Barbara Mikulska, Magdalena Lewandowska, Paweł Majka, Krzysztof Rewiuk, and Mateusz Kowalski.

Shadow Land – the Halo Universe

In the face of an interplanetary conflict, every soldier must know their armor and weapons inside out. Battling otherworldly enemies requires utilizing one’s skills to the maximum, and in moments of great crisis, one often resorts to the enemy’s arsenal. It is therefore worth familiarizing oneself with it and visiting the exhibition “Shadow Land – Halo Universe,” which is sure to appeal to fans of the “Halo” series. You will have the chance to closely examine all sorts of instruments of destruction (and on a real scale!) with which the famed Master Chief defended humanity against invaders from all corners of the galaxy.

Horror Mannequins & Maślana Mucha

Perhaps you can find a moment during your Pyrkon adventure to contemplate concrete, dark emptiness, and radioactivity. If you’re wondering what we mean, we’re here with an answer! The Horror Mannequins & Maślana Mucha exhibition will encompass upcycled artworks inspired by the works of H.R. Giger, drawing from the genres of horror, post-apocalypse, and sci-fi. It will also feature artwork on a slightly smaller scale, such as the Dark Fantasy Sculptures line crafted from clay, accompanied by a series of custom figurines in a post-apocalyptic theme. The exhibition will be complemented by Maślana Mucha’s drawings in “Atomic Odyssey and Beyond,” focusing on a more classic vision of the end of the world (radiation-filled and rust-concrete). Pop culture references, particularly from 80s cinema, will also be present.

Magical items, critical rolls, epic adventures!

This exhibition is a collection of artworks created using various techniques, revolving around themes related to fantasy and RPG games. It includes vector graphics, digital paintings, traditional artwork, and even paintings. For fans of role-playing games, it’s a wonderful opportunity to reminisce about what it was like to be a player. And for those who are just entering the world of fantasy, it’s a chance to immerse themselves in the atmosphere of RPG games. In short, it showcases magical items, critical hits, and epic adventures.

Science Fiction

This exhibition is perfect for all those who love science fiction in a broad sense, with a particular emphasis on Star Trek. It showcases the largest individual collection of Star Trek models in Poland! However, that’s not the only attraction you’ll see at this exhibition.

Expect to encounter fantastic exhibits associated with titles such as Star Wars, Seaquest, Tron, Batman, Battlestar Galactica, and Space 1999. You won’t miss Optimus Prime and the Iron Man MK III armor either. The collection includes not only ship models but also a variety of weapons, books, and communicators.

Now, let’s talk about the exhibits themselves. You’ll have the opportunity to see over 250 models from the Star Trek universe (models are approximately 12 or 22 cm in length), ships from Star Wars (ranging from 6 to 30 cm in length), the Iron Man MK III armor (DeAgostini edition, standing at 60 cm in height), as well as LEGO models of Apollo 11, Saturn V, and LEGO City related to space (including the ISS and lunar station, among others).

Fallout 3023

This time, we have something for fans of post-apocalyptic settings—the Fallout 3023 exhibition, an upgraded version of last year’s showcase! The new edition of the exhibition will truly blow you away. It will be bigger and better in every way!

What can you expect from the exhibition? Answers to many burning post-apocalyptic questions! Do you want to know what will be in fashion after the atomic war? What outfit will be mandatory to safely venture outside? What type of headgear will be the epitome of style? What accessories will make you shine like a diamond in society? Or perhaps you’re interested in knowing what currency you’ll pay for a bottle of water or what weapon will be essential for survival in these challenging times?

If questions about the post-apocalyptic world are multiplying in your minds, then be sure to visit the exhibition featuring the latest Fallout 3023 collection!

ATAT Costume Art – Queen Amidala’s costumes

Yes, we have Star Wars fans here, including fans of Padmé Amidala! If that’s the case, we have something special for you—an exhibition showcasing the costumes of Queen Amidala!

The costumes of Queen Amidala, which the creator has been reconstructing for over 10 years, will surely capture your attention! From the very beginning, the artist made it a priority to faithfully recreate the original costumes worn by Padmé in Star Wars. Weeks of searching for the right materials and months of sewing, embroidering, and constructing headpieces have yielded excellent results. Each of the presented models stands out for its meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail. You will have the opportunity to witness the incredible outcome of this work firsthand at Pyrkon 2023!

Stanley’s Workshop – Fantastic Creativity

This time, we have an exhibition that offers more than just viewing models and exhibits—you’ll also have the opportunity to see how they are created! It’s a real treat for fans of handicraft work.

At the exhibition, you will see a collection of original models, dioramas, and figures, and witness live demonstrations of their creation from scratch! For the first time, you will also see an exhibition of LEGO robots and vehicles.

What exhibits will be showcased at the exhibition? A wide variety! There will be models, busts, and figurines created from scratch. You’ll see finished and painted models, as well as prototypes and models in progress. Additionally, there will be custom-built LEGO robot figurines. Compared to previous years, nearly 80% of the exhibits will be new or in progress. One thing is for sure, there will be plenty of attractions—live workshops, conversations with the creators, and the opportunity to try out various modeling techniques!

Different Worlds

This exhibition is for fans of much darker atmospheres who enjoy unconventional and unsettling illustrations. The artworks depict surreal visions of a dark and strange world, reminiscent of science fiction films or novels.

Figurine Geeks


Are you obsessed with figurines? Then the Collectors’ Figures exhibition is perfect for you!

You will have the opportunity to see it thanks to a newly formed group dedicated to the subject of large-scale figurines and action figures. What does that mean? You will find statuettes ranging from 1/6 scale all the way up to life-size 1:1 scale!

This group brings together people of all ages who share a passion for collecting various artifacts from our culture.

At this year’s Pyrkon, they plan to showcase figures, vehicles, and statuettes related to the DC and Marvel universes, as well as cinema classics like “Terminator” and “Terminator 2.” The items on display come from the private collections of collectors from all over Poland, who have chosen the greatest gems from their collections.

But the experience doesn’t end with just looking! This year, the Collectors’ Figures group has prepared a few surprises for you! These include the opportunity to take a photo with the Joker, try on his mask, and watch presentations of various collections on a projector.

And these are just a few of the fantastic attractions that await you there!

Monster airshed

Hangar z potworami

Hangar with Monsters is the name of the exhibition because it represents a space where you can store anything, from tanks to spaceships. Why monsters? Because they don’t limit themselves to creating anything that exists. The motto of this exhibition is “modeling is not just about perfect representation of reality!” Here, you will see models and figurines from various corners of the fantasy world.

The Hangar with Monsters is created by people who are eager to share their unique vision of the subject or their alternative approach to well-established themes (such as What-if modeling). Most of their works are created using different techniques and their mutations (including scratch-built models, 3D printing, props, kitbashing), so every enthusiast interested in this type of hobby will surely find something interesting.

Furthermore, if you have models or figurines that didn’t turn out as expected but you still love them, Hangar with Monsters will do its best to help you! They can offer advice and even bring them to a better state, time permitting.

Heartwork – crochet gnomes

Heartwork - szydełkowe gnomy

During the upcoming Pyrkon, you will see… an exhibition of crocheted gnomes! It’s an extraordinary presentation of handmade toys that will surely capture the attention of all craft enthusiasts and gnome fans.

At the exhibition, you will admire a wide variety of gnomes. Each one is crafted with meticulous attention to detail and a unique style. Some of the gnomes will be holding additional accessories such as beer mugs, books, sticks, and much more.

Warsaw Superhero

Warszawski Superbohater

“Cosplay” is a word that encompasses much more than just “dressing up.”

This will be proven to you by an exhibition focusing on a documentary photography project called “Warsaw Superhero.” It tells the story of the local cosplayer community in Warsaw, drawing inspiration from American pop culture, including Marvel, DC, and Star Wars. You will find portraits of cosplayers taken in iconic locations throughout Warsaw.

But who are these people from Warsaw? What does this project mean to them? Why do they engage in cosplay, and what benefits do they derive from it? You will find answers to these questions and more at this exhibition!

Get ready for a dope journey into the world of LEGO bricks, where our youngest (8 and 9 years old) exhibitors in the history of the Convention will present their fantastic models!

Polish Garrison 501st Legion – 20th Anniversary Exhibition

Polish Garrison 501st Legion

On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the Polish Garrison 501st Legion, an extraordinary exhibition will be prepared, which will take you to a distant galaxy, where you will feel like the heroes of the “Star Wars” movies. There you will find replicas of helmets, weapons and models, and meet members of the group in full gear.

Polish Garrison is part of an international organization, Legion 501, with nearly 14,000 Star Wars fans from more than 60 countries. Their goal is to spread awareness of the series by participating in events and promoting professional costumes of characters associated with the Galactic Empire, such as stormtroopers, military personnel, bounty hunters and even Sith Lords. Their exhibition will also feature the activities of sister organizations such as the Rebel Legion, which brings together fans of the Star Rebellion, and the Mando Mercs Costume Club, Mandalorian bounty hunters

This is an organization that has charity and helping others at heart. Wherever they can, they bring a whiff of adventure and the universe of a galaxy far, far away into everyday life. They also try to give back a part of themselves to those who lack the FORCE and expect HELP instead, so that everyone’s lives are better.

For Pyrkon attendees, especially those visiting the Collection and Art Exhibition and their exhibition, they prepared a “Star Wars” knowledge contest and small gifts related to Polish Garrison. See you soon!

It’s already a (not-so-small) tradition that you’ll find an exhibition by Figure Geeks in the Collection and Art Exhibition hall. Here you will find a multitude of miniatures of your favorite childhood heroes, but also new ones that you may have seen in blockbusters of recent years. Take photos with props from Marvel or Star Wars. The Geeks crew will tell you about the figurines themselves, the brands and interesting facts related to them.
Don’t be afraid to ask – after all, figurines are for everyone, not just hardcore fan
