The newly formed group Heroes Are Us spearheaded this project as a Toy Drive for the survivors of typhoon Yolanda and Gawad Kalinga Maralit. Like with others toy convention in the country, there were toy displays, diorama, selling, cosplay, contests and of course gift-giving and toy donation.
The event kicked off with Herbie on display a week before the event.
December 20, 2013 was devoted purely for selling. As a toy collector, this is usually my favorite part of any convention. Items ranging from action figures, comic books, stuffed toys to cosplay materials.
Diorama display by TS1:18 featuring G.I. Joe and Transformers cross-over.
Was able to display some of my Masters of the Universe Classics action figures.
Panel discussion with Direk Peque Gallaga, Lori Reyes, Anna Larruchea and Janus del Prado (from the hit show way back, Batang X) and Jeffrey Benitez of Pinoykon on the future of Pinoy Superhero.
John Arcilla serenaded the crowd and helped in awarding Jolina of Gawad Kalinga a college grant from the Mayor of Paranaque City.
The event also marked the partnership between Heroes Are Us and iCOZPLAY.
Me, just having a blast :)
More pictures coming soon. :)
