Hi there, fellow toy lovers and pop culture geeks! A few days from now, TOYCON 2016 will be upon us.
This year’s TOYCON 2016 really got bigger and better as SMART joins the party for the ultimate fan experience of all things associated with
pop-culture such as toys, games, movies, cosplay, anime and collectibles. After 15 years worth of XP and partnering with Pop Life FanXperience, TOYCON 2016 buffed up its stats to bring you the ULTIMATE fan experience.
Here’s what’s to expect this TOYCON 2016!
4. Map (Venue)
We will venture a bigger territory as we make SM Mall of Asia the haven of people like us who live, breathe, and love all things toy-related. TOYCON 2016 will be at SMX Convention Center Halls 1-4, SM Mall of Asia.
3. Heroes/Champions (Guests)
Just like in games where we are in awe of heroes or champions that traverse the map, TOYCON 2016 will also be studded with celebrity guests both local and international from different media such as movies, television, music, comics, gaming and anime.
The three-day event will be graced by Hollywood actors including Kristian Nairn (Game of Thrones); Dean Cain (Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman); Daniel Logan (Star Wars); Bronson Pelletier and Kiowa Gordon (Twilight); Thai heartthrob Maurio Maurer; and R&B artist Frankie J, among others.
2. Crossovers (Exhibits & Themes)
Who would have thought that Voltes V would share the same room with Ironman? Well, in TOYCON 2016, your most radical crossover universes will come to life.
TOYCON 2016 will feature a 25-foot Voltes V statue, a Stan Lee Excelsior exhibit, and themed zones from the biggest entertainment brands like Marvel, DC, Game of Thrones, Walking Dead Cartoon Network, Capcom, Namco and DOTA, among many others.
