Singapore Toy, Games and Comic Convention 2011



Wow...another year has passed by and the Singapore Toy, Games and Comic Convention is here again. Or should I say was here as today was the last day of the convention.
Like last year, I thought I was not going to make it to the convention but in the end I managed to get my lazy ass to the convention.

Like what Benjamin Franklin said,"By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail".
I forgot to prepare my camera and in the end, at the entrance I realised I only had 15 mins of battery life. Once the battery dies, I will only have my crappy Iphone 3GS camera.

At the entrance of the Singapore Toy, Games and Comic Convention 2011


As everyone should know, the cute mascot for STGCC 2011 was designed by none other than Alex from ToyHaven.
I also made a paper toy out of his design. Thank Goodness it turned out ok...phew.



The first thing that caught my eyes when I got in was the Hot Toys booth.
It was simply awesome!
This is the first time that Hot Toys has set up a booth in STGCC.
I just knew that my 15 mins of battery life will be used up here!



I love this wall.


At the booth, they were displaying up and coming figures plus figures that have already hit the stores.
I finally could see the actual figures and not rely on photos from the internet.
After seeing the figures, I am now rushing to pre-order more figures...LOL

Iron Monger...awesome! It will be mine.

It was at STGCC 2010 where I became a fan of designers toys and To-Fu Oyako by DevilRobots was what started me off.

There was a Star Wars display brought to us by the community at Starwars.sg.
Very cool display and they even had some "easter eggs"
Great fun.

Who could resist such display of a huge army ready for battle.
Reminds me of my time in the army before we went out for exercise.

















Some of the "esther eggs" I could find.
Did not managed to find all of them.









Popcorn Pop was also there selling movie poster.
I used to buy posters from them.
