On behalf of the organizers, we thank all of our patrons and exhibitors who have made the recently concluded ToyCon 2014 a success

On behalf of the organizers, we thank all of our patrons and exhibitors who have made the recently concluded ToyCon 2014 a success. It has come to our attention that a certain number of our Opening Night Party program may have been inappropriate for younger members of our audience. We value the feedback we have gotten about this. Being that this was our first year of putting on a "Party Event" during the ToyCon, there is much room for improvement given our learnings from this year.

The Philippine TOYCON: The Biggest Pop Culture Event in the Philippines celebrates its 13th year

TOYCON POSTER 22x28 version for WEB

What’s bigger than dinosaurs? Giant robots. What’s bigger than giant robots? Godzilla. What’s bigger than Godzilla? Freakin’ outer space! Where a bunch of aliens are busy guarding the galaxy.
There nothing that can compare with bigness. But sometimes, even the thought of “bigness” is an understatement when you find something that can contain all these things and add in a huge dose of fun and thrills. Prepare for the biggest one yet! It’s time for TOYCON 2014!!

Batman 75th anniversary celebration in 13th Philippine Toycon 2014 this June 20-22, 2014


Batman75_logo_RGB_blk.PR_535eecc014c117.13296304
“To the Batmobile, let’s go!” is one of the famous line from the classic Batman tv series during the late 60’s, but for others, they only remember the theme song “ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-Batman”. For kids who enjoyed watching the classic animated cartoon – The Adventures of Batman, I’m sure they are aware of the existence of Bat-mite. The release of Tim Burton movie classic “Batman” gave us a view of how our caped crusader the darker knight throw back the line “have you ever dance with the devil in pale moonlight”, which the Joker almost forgot the he owns that line in the first place. In comics many fans were shocked when Bane broke Batman’s back, it was a crazy long story that gave birth to a new wearer of the Batman costume, and it made us accept that someone can stand in for Batman if ever Bruce Wayne wants to rest for awhile.
