ToyCon PH Returns This June 28-30
Unleash your inner child once again as the Philippine Toys, Hobbies, and Collectible Convention (TOYCON PH) returns this June 28-30, 2019 at SMX Convention Center Manila in Pasay.
Tagged as “Asia’s biggest and longest-running convention for toys and collectibles,” ToyCon PH gives every enthusiast a chance to embrace anew the inner child in them by showcasing cosplay, comics, gaming experiences, and digital entertainment.
ToyCon PH invites both toy fanatics and connoisseurs to the most anticipated gathering of toy distributors, gamers, pop memorabilia collectors, and cosplay enthusiasts.
It has geared itself to provide a “heaven” for toy collectors by preparing a huge retailer floor where visitors can hunt for the rarest, latest, most sought-after collectors’ pieces ranging from action figures, dolls, diecast cars, robots, comics, cards, artwork, and various pop memorabilia from all over the world.
To further the excitement, ToyCon PH unveiled this year’s character ambassador “Zeta Manila Killa,” a Vinyl Toy created by Quiccs and produced by Devil Toys.
The newly-designed toy is the second installment of Quiccs’ “Manila Killa Trilogy” series, featuring his character ZETA and donning a Philippine-inspired colorway.
The “Zeta Manila Killa” is an official and exclusive TOYCON stuff, which will only be limited to the convention goers.
ToyCon PH remains true to its mission to set the standard as a top-of-mind pop-culture event in Asia by displaying a number of exhibitions for the event goers to look forward to.
The convention will feature the biggest toys-comics merch floor, a PTGA toy gallery, toy designers’ booth, comics and art gallery, artist alley, and Creators World.
