1,000 limited bear bricks convention toy was given away for early registered participants and the good part is that the event is FREE to enter. So as they say it was like a warzone inside, too many people and the crowd is so big as they enter the event after lining up at 9:00am.

Also the Supreme Class Optimus Prime was on sale at SG$110, and they spotted our local comics Mangaholixx having a booth at the event.

here's the first photo coverage by our team Philippines, they will represent for the Philippine Toy Convention, Transformers Philippines and LEGO Philippine Bricksters (thats our group here in Manila), and since I can't attend the event, I just told them to represent for me and use my gate passes of the event.

Mico and Victor just uploaded the preview night from yesterday opening of the event for Guest VIP, and I'm glad that they made it. Also Dash our Singapore pinoy resident for Transformers Philippines will upload some photos of the event itself later.

thanks so much to PI Events for the invitation!
