Hello guys! Its time for a toy convention coverage! I sure took a lot of photos, but take note that I did not took photos of everything, I just took photos of stuff that looked interesting or phenomenal.
This event took place June 15-17, 2012 at the Philippines! More fun in the Philippines! hahaha! I only had the time to go to the last day though, and I went alone since most of my friends attended this event on the 2nd day. It was quite fun I guess with a lot of interesting toy displays and stores.
I would just like to highlight some interesting photos that I took, so without further ado, ToyCon 2012:
Yes its Pac Man! It’s a custom made figure, though I forgot to get the name of the group who made this XD They made a lot of custom figures like a purple akuma look alike figure:
This one is a pretty damn nice and big figure! This won’t even fit my current display cabinet at home XD During my 2nd round of browsing the event, when I came back to this display, someone already bought this figure! Damn rich! XD
A lot of GI Joes were on display! Lots of them! XD
A perfectly made Panday statue! He is a fictional Philippine comic character, Panday meaning blacksmith. He was very popular back in the day, especially that he was portrayed by a famous Philippine action movie star in a movie called “Ang Panday”! But he already passed, peace on his soul.
Ryu looks really scary in this statue! With red eyes and a rage face XD Of course if there is a Ryu, there will be an…
Akuma! Also a scary guy! XD
This is one of the displays that really caught my eye, look at that texture! He looks so real! This is the base bust they used in making up the Joker from the Dark Knight movie. Just amazing!~ And here are the other busts:
Pac Man strikes again!
Here in the middle is Efren Bata Reyes! He is a Filipino professional pool player and a two-time world champion.
Here is Donnie Yen portraying ‘Ip Man’ or ‘Yip Man’ in one of my most favorite martial art films “Ip Man” =3
I bet you know this guy! XD I wonder what he is looking at and smiling about.. XD
This is a nicely painted Metal Slug tank! It’s cute but well detailed! =3
Kratos as a soldier? haha! I don’t think he needs that weapon… XD
This is a very interesting custom build of a Sinanju! =3
Collectible Pepsi bottle caps featuring Mario Bros.
This staue was humongous! Taller than a human being!
A pretty nice Captain America bust!
I think her name is Baby Doll? I’m not sure, but she’s from the movie Sucker Punch, and she looks real! XD
This one is a replica of the Bat Suit used in the movie The Dark Knight. Damn glass reflections 😦
That’s about the most interesting stuff that I can show you but here’s the rest of the photos along with some cosplayers, it’s quite a lot so.. enjoy! =3
That’s it for the Philippine ToyCon 2012 coverage! Tune in again for my next post! =3

So many figures! The Ip Man is impressive, captures Donnie Yen perfectly. Yeah, you’re right. The sucker-punch girl is named Baby Doll. Gosh, that movie was so weird. Nice post. Looks like you had a fun time.
Yes he sure is! 😀 Haha I find the movie weird too but it has a lot of hidden meanings I think XD
Did not notice the “Panday” statue when I went there D: I pretty much concentrated on the “Japanese” side of the display (a whole lot of anime figures) Nice photoshoot btw
Haha I pretty much looked at everything, a lot of people were photographing Team-Onichan’s booth when I was inside the gallery XD anyway I already saw most of the figures in the display so I didn’t bother to photograph them anymore haha XD
pac man figure… i would like to who would buy that. :)) this is one grand toycon. seems to be greatly upgraded compared to the past ones!
Haha maybe a Pac Man fan would? yeah whole lot of stores, displays and events. A LOT of people! XD
This is awesome-jajaan!!!
wow awesome and seems this toy con dominated by 12 inch figures/statue, i
yes.. a lot of them 😀 but there are a lot of other stores, and I mean a lot of them who sell other various toys like match boxes, lego, spawn, dragons, anime stuff, super hero stuff.. lots of toys! 😀
Holy crap, really interesting displays there. And a Sentinel that’s bigger than a human..? Gosh. And interesting how so many Filipino characters were displayed there..now I know more about them ahaha. XD
And that evil Ryu looks so bad-ass with em glowing eyes. XD
yeah very much interesting. =3 yup that’s right a really large sentinel, really looks scary in person XD
I was surprise too to have found many Filipino character toys on display xd
OMG, a Metal Slug tank!!!!! ^W^ sure missed my childhood, Metal Slug was my favourite game, simple yet addictive! >_< lol, kratos with a rifle, totally pointless! xD Guess he got promoted to the god of (modern) war… xD oh, and are those figures with only tapes to cover their 'parts' publicly displayed???
Yeah me too, everytime I went to an video game arcade, I always played Metal Slug! =3 Yeah that’s true because there are a lot of kids around. XD
whoa…. and you call that censored??? oWo…… sure wish i were there! xD If i were there, i’d probably just stare at the figurines and totally missed a lot of stuff!!!
haha is that right? =3
