It's June once again, and that can only mean one thing: TOYCON!!!
This year's TOYCON boasts of a huge dealer's floor of approximately 180 merchant stalls that would sell toys and other related merchandise. There will also be exhibits of toy collections, including a GI Joe diorama by TS 118. There'll be other activities such as cosplay and contests where prizes will be given.You can click HERE for more information on these.
TOYCON has once again partnered with DC Comics as Warner Brothers launches The Dark Knight Rises with an exhibit of original movie props, costumes, as well as Dark Knight-related merchandise such as toys and apparel.
In a manner reminiscent of Inception (an event within an event), TOYCON will also serve as host for gaming event AMPED FEST 2012. ABS CBN Multimedia Inc, will launch it's new roster of games; an Anroid app and a JAVA gaming portal.
Seattle-Based toy designer Arron Martin will grace this year's convention and will exhibit some of his panda art. Friends from Komikon will bring in local comic book artists such as Huebert Khan Micheal, Lui Antonio, Gilbert Monsanto; as well as Lyndon Gregorio, Ariel Atiena, Lei Muncal, and Jon & Sherry Zamar. This artist panel will be on hand to sign comics and do sketches, and showcase samples of indie and mainstream titles.
The 11th Philippine TOYCON will be from June 15-17 at the Megatrade Halls of SM Megamall. Gates open at 10 AM. Tickets are priced at Php 100 and will be available at the venue and online at SM Tickets.
