See you in Philippine Toy Convention 2017 #toyconph2017

I think it’s time to pay a visit to old friends and hobbies (not really old, because it’s time to have a new Gunpla kit hopefully a Master Grade).

I’m gonna return as an ordinary attendee, not a blogger because I am still currently on hiatus until I convince my wife to join me in blogger events.

Anastasia, Wasabitoys, Arigatoys, and the likes… SEE YOU ALL in 7117.

Do you collect Bobble-head toys? Have you heard about the Dancing Groot toy?

The Funko Pop! Roadshow happened at 2/F The Newport Plaza, Resorts World Manila last November 29-30, 2014.

This event caters us various Funko Bobble-head figures, Funko Pop! paintings, customized Funko Pop! figures, and photos of Funko Pop! dioramas.

This is also the launch of the iconic “Dancing Groot” figure where the miniature version of Groot from the Guardians of the Galaxy is placed in a pot where you see him wiggle while in motion.

So what is Funko by the way?

Funko is founded as a Bobblehead Company in 1998 by Mike Becker. Since 2005, Funko holds several licenses from WWE, Lucasfilm, Marvel, Hasbro, Elvis Presley, CBS, FOX, Warner Bros, Disney, Microsoft, HBO, etc.

The #toyconph2014 Anthologies : Day 2

DSC_0771_mini

As usual, Day 2 or saturdays is the start of the much more crowded Toy Conventions because most of the attendees are available during that day.

I just remembered when I entered the halls, I could hardly pass because of attendees would fill up 3 Megatrade halls about around 3PM. So I spend my time taking pictures because this is a better opportunity to shoot pictures of your favorite cosplayer/character.

And, of course, Alodia Gosiengfiao is not absent during the event. She wore a Shingeki no Kyojin outfit and still, the meet and greet would grab more audiences who are most likely Alodia’s fans.

And, last but not the least, I still spend my time taking selfies outside of the halls because the light is good. Another act made by PASS (Pao Adik sa Selfie).
