Highlights of TOYCON 2013

So I was at TOYCON 2013 yesterday afternoon at the SM Megatrade Hall. It was full of people, cosplayers included. Two famous cosplayers were present in the event -- Alodia and Jinri Park. They spent most of their time signing posters and posing for the camera.

Cosplayers from the online game Dragon Nest.

I was a bit hesitant to go to TOYCON 2013 thinking that it would probably be the same as last year. I went to the event anyway. It was as I was expecting it to be -- almost the same as last year.

Most of the action figures that were displayed are almost the same exact toys that were displayed last year. A lot of the cosplayers are the same cosplayers that were there last year -- specially the Justice League and the Avengers.

The highlight of the day was the cosplay competition called Hero Face Off. I was expecting a performance by a band or something so I stayed until 7PM. No other performances were present. Not to mention that the entrance fee increased from P100 to P120.

There were few new exhibitors that I noticed and the booth that I really loved seeing is the One Sixth Republic. Their action figures are of high quality. I also loved the free soda provided by Coca Cola and the free ID lace and pin buttons given by Mozilla Philippines (Firefox).

Some of the most common merchandized during TOYCON 2013 are mugs, action figures (One Piece, Naruto, Marvel and DC), toy cars, robots, headgears, cards, dog tags, and t-shirts . There were also home embroidery machines from Brother Philippines and booths from Komikon and schools that offer courses for animation.

Some of the cosplayers that were new to me are: Red Mask (Maskman), the boy scout from the movie Up, and Mr. Pogi (from Dragon Ball Z). I also saw the new PSP games (the latest) Marvel vs Capcom as well as Injustice (DC characters). The online game Dragon Nest was also present during the event giving free installer CDs and posters. There's also a booth dedicated to the promotion of the latest Superman movie, "Man of Steel".

Overall, I still enjoyed attending TOYCON 2013 and here are some of the pictures I took.
