Toycon 2019 happened last weekend at the SMX Convention Center, MOA Pasay and what a convention it was! We saw so many awesome, funny and cool things that we had to share the experience!
Here are the best things we saw last weekend at Toycon 2019!
In this entry to the Toycon Toy Photography Exhibit, Photographer Peter Paul Magtira perfectly captures the Mad Titan Thanos demonstrating his grand plan to balance the universe with his sick pirouette skills.
This thing was towering over the convention floor at a massive 22-feet in height! This belongs in the Batcave right between the T-Rex and the giant coin!
Prince De Guzman once again embodies the nightmarish, otherworldy Pennywise the Clown from Stephen King’s IT to frightening effect. He never broke character when people would take pictures with him and he’d often lunge or snarl at unsuspecting people mid-photo to catch them by surprise! For all we know this could have been the actual Pennywise and we’d be none the wiser.
One of the biggest events at this year’s Toycon was the release of the much-anticipated Flocked Variant of the Jollibee Funko Pop. As expected, hordes of people lined-up at the Jollibee Restaurant-themed booth to grab their own for the ultimate take-out pasalubong. The Funko Pop was so popular and highly sought after that there were reports from all over social media of the toy retailing for upwards of 15, 000 Pesos!
In one of the best and most rip-roaring performances we saw on the main stage, this dude in the Kakashi-inspired cosplay was a rocking his heart out with all the force of a full blown chidori! You go Kakashi Sensei!
Our friends over at Rumble Royale hosted a grand Rock-Paper-Scissors tournament over the weekend to the excitement of would-be contestants, passers-by and spectators alike. The Tournament functioned like a Battle Royale wherein each player had a starting set of five lives. During the course of Toycon Weekend, any player may challenge another in a Rock-Papers-Scissors duel betting any number of lives. In addition to ultimate bragging rights, the player with the most number of lives on each day of Toycon would be entitled to select one prize from the pool: Either a Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch, or a whopping 10, 000 PHP!
The lucky little girl in the last picture was the grand champion of the second day and got to take home a brand spanking new Nintendo switch for her trouble!
What would Toycon be without the toys? Below are some the finest, funniest, coolest and quirkiest toy displays that we saw at the show. There were Smash Bros-Themed Displays, Crossovers of different magnitudes and multiverses, and even Transformers X TWICE?
