This Pinoy Collector Built Pokemon-Themed Workstations

Vince Lubuguin, a 2D and 3D Architectural Technical Officer based in Singapore, went viral all over social media with his Pokemon-themed workstations. Yes, he’s got multiple Pokemon workstations.

Lubuguin started collecting Pokemon items 20 years ago in 2001. He shares with WhenInManila.com that being a homebody during his childhood pushed him to start collecting Pokemon toys.

“Toys have always been one of the things that made my childhood alive and full of happiness, ” he shares.

Having two sets of Pokemon collections, each in the Philippines and Singapore, Lubuguin turned these into his work sanctuary at home.

He shares that he started building his Pokemon workstations when Singapore first announced a lockdown in April of 2020.

“I felt that having an ordinary work setup makes that ambiance quite boring, so I thought of designing a fun and unique workspace using my toy collection so that I would be much more productive working from home,” Lubuguin shares.

From there, he now has four Pokemon-themed stations: the Bulbasaur Station, Charmander Station, Squirtle Station, and the Secret Garden Gaming Station which features all three themes and Togepi.
