2014 Collecticon

Collecticon is one of the most anticiated toy conventions in the country alongside Toycon and Tagcom. Now on its 7th year, the organizers transferred the venue from Robinsons Place Manila to SM Megamall. The 2-day event was jam packed with these activities:

- Top comic book artist sketches and commission
- Gundam Caravan
- Customizer's Clinic featuring top local customizers
- Guardians of the Galaxy Cosplayers
- Toy Display by different Toy Groups
- Toy Diorama by Toy Soldier 1:18
- Statue and Lifesize Display
- Toy Groups Trivia Contest & Discussions
- 1/6 Scale Customizing Contest
- Toy Photography Contest
- K-Zoned featuring KPop Group NOM/Dance

 I have been going to Collecticon since its debut 7 years ago and has been joining the photo contest for the past 6 years. I exhibited my He-Man collection as well 2 years ago and it is always a treat meeting fellow toy and comic book enthusiasts. I just want to share some photos that I took during the 2-day event held at the Megatrade Hall 3 on September 27-28, 2014.

From the entrance, the guests were greeted by the amazing toy displays from various local toy collectors:

The entire half of the hall was dedicated to selling and some really cool finds! Was able to take home a few comic books, old and hard-to-find toys:XD


Cool toys were auctioned during the event. A lot went  home with empty pockets but, happy as a kid. Haha!

The crowd was also treated by the Guardians of the Galaxy cosplayers.

And my fave, toy photography contest. Got really lucky and won 1st place in the Edited Category. My 4th win and ticket to Collecticon's Hall of Fame. Ending my toy photo stint with a bang -- Guardians of the Galaxy way. Thank you, Collection! Until next year.

I missed a lot of events during the con like the Marvel trivia contest, Figure Custom Clinic and 1/6th Custom contest because I was busy roaming around with fellow toy geeks chatting and hunting for toys. Ha! Well, there will always be next year. :)

My winning entry. We Are The Guardians of the Galaxy.
