TOYCON PH 2022 – THE BIG SHOW RETURNS FOR A GRAND HOMECOMING!
You read that right folks! The biggest pop culture event, paid, laid, and made in Philippine soil, is finally back in action!
Officially on their 19th year (not counting the online events during the Pandemic lockdown period), Toycon comes back home to where it all started, Megatrade Halls 1-3 in SM Megamall. Here is what Toycon PH's organizing body has to say for this momentous return:
"For long-time TOYCON fans, it’s no secret that Voltes V holds a special place in this convention’s heart. This iconic robot has never missed a spot among the collage of colorful characters on our poster since the very start, and on special milestone years it has even become the central symbol of our show, with the huge Voltes V statue in 2016 when we first moved the convention to the SMX in Pasay, the fleet of Voltes V ships gracing our 2017 merchandise, and TOYCON’s launch of the Tamashii Nations Super Electromagnetic Machine VOLTES V, Bandai Spirits DLX Soul of Chogokin in 2020.
It’s been too long since the community of pop culture fans and collectors have come together since the pandemic struck. For many, this long drought without any gathering to celebrate our common love for all things creative, innovative and collectible has gone on way too long. And so with the effects of COVID winding down, we just cannot wait to see you all, our fans and loyal community, finally come home.
And this year, our 19th year of putting on an onsite convention, Voltes V takes center stage again as part of a promise made by our event partner, Quiccs, back in 2019 to launch his trademark TEQ-63 in unmistakable Voltes V style only at TOYCON! And this year, in partnership with TOEI Co. Ltd. Telesuccess, we’re all set to finally launch it! At the heart of the Voltes V story is a tale of a family divided, of struggles suffered and surpassed, but ultimately a reunion of love. Which is really what TOYCON is about too, isn’t it? It is a yearly reunion, and for this year, a homecoming, as we return to the place where it all started.
TOYCON was started as a gathering of people of like minds, and this year as it has been every year, it is a collaboration of many to put together the biggest pop culture event in the country and in South East Asia. It is an alliance, which this year, goes back to its roots, as we put on a TOYCON which feels familiar but still is the cutting-edge show it has been which other shows have imitated but never duplicated."
Toycon is currently happening at Megatrade Halls 1-3, SM Megamall! Hurry and catch the last day tomorrow and experience the ultimate Pop Culture experience, back again after 2 long years!
