9th Philippine Toy Con 2010
The last time I participated in this event was two years ago, and that was by accident, I got fascinated by the number of Otaku fans, Toy collectors and Cosplayers . I was managed also to took some pictures back then but it was not an SLR so the quality is not that uhmmm…nice? I am not a hardcore anime fan, either a DC comic collector, but I find the event interesting. Convention like this is one way of exchanging culture between countries, even though it’s pop culture, it doesn’t matter. Also I find the people and toys a interesting subject for photography based on my experience two years ago.
Anyway, I am so excited to participate this year’s event, this is not just another Philippine Toycon, this is a celebration of DC Comics 75th anniversary.
DC Comics 75th Anniversary will be the main theme of this year’s Philippine Toy Convention to be held on June 19 and 20 at the SM Mega Trade Halls 2 and 3. Everyone is invited to come in a superhero or comic book character costume. This year, Collectibles Unlimited Assoc. will attempt to gather the most number of people in superhero costumes in one location.
This year’s Toy Convention will include DC Comics- themed competitions and activities. DC Comics is inviting Filipino comics artists who have rendered work for DC Comics to autograph your DC Comics collectibles in the Toy Convention and Toy Kingdom, SM Megamall There will also be a special auction of limited edition DC Comics Encyclopedias to participants who purchase DC Comics licensed products from the DC Comics booth in the Toy Convention.
