Collecticon 2013 Day 02: Around the Event Floor plus Cosplayers

My wife and I arrived in the afternoon and we were surprised that in spite of the bad weather, there was a good turnout at the event. I even jokingly said that we just got off the LRT and are we now back in it?

As expected, there were lots of stores selling toys of all kinds. There were display booths. My favorite, MaxiCollectors was there.There was even a speaker talking about what I think was figure customization. Kids and adults alike were milling all over the event floor.

We braved the crowds and were able to browse through all the stores. I finally found the store that I’m looking for, the one selling Hot Wheels for only P60 a car. I’m actually collecting cars on the Hot Wheels Blings line that were released around 2004 and 2005. I already have a couple of them which I bought at 168 and at ToyCon. Now this store has plenty of them. I bought around 11 Blings cars plus 3 more on the … line. After that, I decided to close my wallet and to just take some pictures while I roamed around.  It was tiring but enjoyable nonetheless.

Here’s a bird’s eye view of the event floor:

One could get lost here!

The Superman guy was there. He is a regular at ToyCon as well but I was unable to take a picture of him then. It was cool that he is wearing the updated Man of Steel costume of Superman.

Superman is back!

Here’s an Iron Man cosplayer. I shouldn’t have used the flash. But I guess it was not so bad.

“I am Iron Man!”

Lastly, V from V for Vendetta. I remember taking a picture of this guy from the last ToyCon.

“Remember, remember, the Fifth of November…”

In the next post, I’ll post some toys…

Collecticon 2013: Why did I miss this before?

I can’t believe that it’s already on its 6th year and I wasn’t even aware of Collecticon 2013 until I saw a post on the Big Boys Toy Store page advertising this event. Since ToyConPH 2013, I’ve been waiting for another similar event to attend so this would be another perfect opportunity for me to check out some cool toys, and even maybe buy some, plus a chance to do some toy photography. So I immediately informed my wife that we would be planning to attend this event on Saturday at Robinsons Place Manila. Good thing she agreed 🙂
