The Singapore Toy, Games & Comic Convention brings the East and the West in one gigantic pop culture explosion! Held this year on the 1st and 2nd of September at the gorgeous Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Center, this year’s line up brings several fresh faces as well as a slew of STGCC favorites!
Designer toy heroes Simone Lego, Tristan Eaton, and Devilrobots wow-ed urban vinyl and plastic pop collectors with their latest releases as well as re-issues of several favorites. I personally did not survive the onslaught unscathed, as I couldn’t resist several TokiDoki premiums as well as the STGCC exclusive Treesons from Crazy Label and Ozzo Collection.
Japanese pop culture fans weren’t left out in the cold at this con — not with the massive Gunpla display, and the queues at the Tekken tournament space (where the winner walks away with over SGD 1,000 in prizes). Also back at STGCC 2012 was one of my favorite merch booths from the previous con: Bloody Bunny from Thailand. Cute and gory at the same time, you won’t be able to resist him when he’s on the warpath
Last but not least is the Hulk-sized booth from Hot Toys — featuring their latest must-buy collectible figures! With a nearly complete line-up from the biggest movie of the year: each of the six Avengers (Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, The Hulk, Black Widow, and Hawkeye), SHIELD Director Nick Fury, and charismatic villain Loki Laufeyson, Hot Toys is sure to burn a hole in your pocket — and you’ll love every minute of it!
