TORONTO Twenty eight years after starring as a pre teen treasure hunter in "The Goonies," actor Sean Astin still meets ardent fans of the adventure comedy film.
"They've refined so many things and changed so many things, from the hobbit feet to the way the dragon moves, how Gollum looks," said Astin.
Astin said he also signs his autograph on a lot of asthma inhalers at conventions (his "Goonies" character had asthma).

"They've really made a lot of advancements, so it's a little bittersweet that you don't get to be there for that, you're part of the kind of older thing now. But at the same time a lot of those people are Air Max 97 Sole the same people who we knew and worked with and enjoyed their company and marvelled at their expertise, and so good for them, it's exciting for them."
Of course, Astin also sees many fans dressed as his "The Lord of the Rings" character Samwise Gamgee with a knapsack, pots and pans at such conventions.

Boys of Abu Ghraib," in which he plays a guard at the infamous prison that was the source of an abuse scandal in Iraq.
"Some people have the pirate ship, some people have Sloth's face, other people will have the iconic images from the movie. It's a bit shocking to see how deeply that sweet movie from 1985 has embedded itself in the culture."
At pop culture conventions such as this weekend's two day Toronto ComiCon, which Astin is scheduled to attend, "'The Goonies' is always huge," he says.
His answer to the first query is that "it wasn't meant to be," seeing as Samwise didn't appear in the original books and the filmmakers couldn't include everybody from "The Lord of the Rings."
"It really is just an awful stain on human history and really a black eye for my country."
"It was a very painful experience to make that movie, doing the research for it, all the reading, the documentaries and studying about it," he said.
At this weekend's event at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, he expects to field many questions about the recently released "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," the first in a trio of films that act as prequels to the "Lord of the Rings."
"It's not a convention if two people at least don't show up and show me their 'Goonies' tattoo," Astin, 42, said in a recent telephone interview from Los Angeles.
Astin's upcoming projects include the film "The Nike Air Max Zero Dark Grey
"So my peace was made with it a while ago," said Astin. "And I'm in good company with a lot of other fantastic actors who can always look to the fact that we were a part of something really special."
"The 'Goonies' are almost 30 years old, 'Rudy' is 20 years old, 'Lord of the Rings' is over 10 years old just getting older. And in case I didn't remember, I've got three daughters, the oldest of which is 16. So there's always some other reminder of just how old you're getting."
"We're getting older, that's the moral of the story," said Astin.
"So apparently we made asthma cool for a generation," he said with a laugh.
Astin anticipates fans will ask why he's not in "The Hobbit," and what he thinks of the film.
