TOYCON 2009, Another Year of Toy Overload

If there are events that I really look forward every year, that is definitely TOYCON. This is one of the events where I got the chance to buy cheap collectibles that i really like.

This year's TOYCON is obviously a success with people from all walks of life gather in SM Megamall Mega Trade Hall last June 13, 2009 to experience once again a geek hormonal rush.

Collectible displays are so awesome including those who create and designs life-sized statues of comic book characters like Spider-man, Joker and Thor. And some Toy Organization also showcases their toy collection through Dioramas and custom figures.

Like all previous TOYCON events, cosplay is one of the main highlight of the event with cosplayers and photographers lurking all over the venue. For me who really doesn't like anime cosplays, I found some who's really good that depicts comic book characters and movie super heroes.

Then it is also one of those chances to hangout with some friends who I hardly see for quite some time like the Bayan Knights, DAMEAT and some friends that I share most of my interests. I really miss this people and I'm so glad I saw them once gain.

And the event is nothing without the countless numbers of Toy and collectible merchants that sells hard to find items in different retail prices. Being a veteran attendee of this kind of toy event, I kinda know the usual gig to score for good deals and I did. I think I got a 3 piece action figure set for only half the price. The event is also swarmed by comic retailers and most of them are selling them for cheap prices.

The event is also packed with Movie and TV sponsors who shows some good booths that displays teasers, posters, standees and even life sized statues. For a Movie and TV buff like me, its indeed a guilty pleasure for me.

The event is a blast. Can't wait for next year.
