ToyCon PH 2014: The Epic Launch at Resorts World Manila

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The biggest pop sulture and toy event in the Philippines will soon be held at the Megatrade Halls of SM Megamall in Mandaluyong. But before that epic event, there was an equally epic pre-event activity to proudly introduce the main event this June 20 to 22, 2014.

The 13th Philippine Toycon 2014 Epic Launch and press con was held this Saturday, May 31, 2014 at the Newport Mall of Resorts World Manila. This was the time when most toys and cosplay fans, collectors and enthusiasts gather again at the famed Resorts World to witness an introuction to an event filled with toys, cosplays and other thrills.

The most recognizable and crowd-drawing images and cosplay characters in the gathering were the Batman family of characters led by Batman himself, along with Nightwing, Robin, and the Batgirls. These cast of characters is what makes the Batman phenomenal as we all know that these are ordinary human beings with no special powers except for fighting skills and a plethora of cool gadgets and awesome vehicles.

There was also the popular characters made famous by the Disney movie Frozen. The animated characters were cosplayed by Nekomi Kasai as Anna, Dinny Grayson as Elsa.

I also saw the man who usually cosplays Superman but he was in a He-Man outfit that day. The guys really has a very white complexion and seemingly skinny legs.

There was the Ghost Rider without his trusted flaming motorcycle, and a guy cosplaying the ugly-faced villain with a chainsaw. Mario was also hanging around the stage area interacting with the other characters, and another person cosplaying the recently shown Maleficent character from the movie with the same name. Plus more spectacular characters too many to mention.

An exhibit was also be seen at the ground floor of Resorts World where you can find images of Spiderman, Wolverine, R2D2 and C3PO, and the Transformer characters. The Newport Plaza had several toy resellers showcasing imported toy collectibles, plus some online games promoting their brands.

The presscon panel consisted of
Abby Enriquez and Theresa Bautista from Pacific Licensing, Cholo Mallillin and Victor Yap from Philippine Toycon, and Francis Bonnevie from Resorts World Manila.

 The event also launched for the first time the official ToyCon Philippines 2014 event poster.
