Toys & Comic Convention 2008 Day 2 Hauls

After sorting through so many treasures from the Toys & Comic Convention, I've managed to compile my haul from the 2nd day of the convention..

Now let me show all the items I've got from the 2nd day of the event.. Well, there is only 1 set on that day because my brother, Infestor51 could not go out with me as he needs to finish his schoolwork by Tuesday..

So first of all other than the Dan Dare poster I've got the Magic The Gathering(MGT) Duel Decks.. One is Elves while the other is Trolls..

A very good Dual Decks for those who just started playing the game..

Next will be a weird PVC figure from ViViSect Playset.. I din't dare putting the figure together because it was so ugly, it was an immediate FAIL when I took it out from the box..

Next up will be the Naruto Stylus for the Nintendo DS.. Well, since I don't own a DS, might as well give this to my friend who has a DS.. ^^

Then there is this game that was given out by 2 pretty ladies.. I was actually busy carrying stuffs that I couldn't take out my handphone in time to take a picture with them..

I didn't get a chance to install this MMO soccer game.. I don't have alot of interest in playing soccer.. I just like to watch them only.. Well, that is just me.. Maybe I could give this to my soccer friends who loves soccer very much..

Next up is the Mugen manga book.. It is filled with drawings from locally made artists.. Well, nothing much to say other than just to get one and enjoy reading it.. The graphic of some of the mangas are awesome.. ^^

This would be the SuperScenic Artbook + OST.. It was sold out on the 1st day and CI was the 2nd last person who bought it.. But luckily I came early on the 2nd day to collect it from Collateral Damage..

The songs are very nice too.. I shall review about this in a couple of days..

Last but not least, I got this figurine of Niigi G.B. from Shikigami no Shiro 2.. Click here for more info about this game..

Well, the figurine was worth buying since it was on sale on the 2nd day.. I will also review about this when the time comes.. ^^

Now you think this is last of what I got from the 2nd day of the convention?? Well, you are partially correct..

The reason is that I got to take a picture with Hatsune Miku herself.. So much for being a Miku Guardian.. XD

I looked too serious to be the Miku Gurdian.. I must lighten up a bit.. Orz..

Well, have to thank CI for this shot.. My dad's cameraphone, the N82 died from lack of battery when DS wanted to take a picture of us.. :(

Next time, "Note to self, do charge your battery to max for events like the TCC"..

Toys & Comic Convention 2008 Day 2

It is the 2nd day of the Toys & Comic Convention 2008 held at the Suntec Convention Hall lvl 6..

Before we even start going into the convention, we must plan ahead so that people like me do not lose track of what you are really supposed to do.. Do that first and you can relax for the whole of the day..

Now here is a revised plan of the map.. Old one can be found in my
previous entry..


Black Line = First path, going through Green & Yellow-circled booths..

Red Line = Second path, going all the way to the Blue-circled redemption booth..

Pink = A Priority 1 booth to go to when just entering the convention; The Star Wars booth.. XD

Green = Booths that I will go to make my purchase of some stuffs.. ^^

Yellow = Booths that I must go to stamp my passport for the redemption offer 2morrow..

Blue = Booth that I must head to after everything is done.. Last place to go to.. Ouh, it is the redemption booth.. ^^

So after getting my 1st stamp onto my TCC passport at Nintendo and the 2nd stamp at Chuang Yi, I went straight to the Hasbro booth which is better known as the Star Wars booth..

In there, you can see all the figures, action figures and even the miniature vehicles that you see in movies..

This is a big scene area where Darth Vader gets to meet the Emporer himself..


Next up would be the amphitheater of Storm Troopers and Clone Troopers..

All led by one single person, George Lucas himself.. ^^

Don't mess with me or you'll get it.. *snigger*

More pics at the booth..

Ok, here is what the TCC passport looks like.. Although it looks quite worthless to some people who unknowingly take it, this passport is actually quite a worth thing to hold and get stamped..

Because after you've managed to stamp every spot in this passport, you are entitled to get freebies at the redemption counter..

Problem is, Singapore is well-known for its very long queues.. So some were taken by surprise by the long lon queues..

Ok, now onto our next location, the Collateral Damage booth at the South of the map overview.. It is booth number 4 btw.. ^^

This is one of their artwork which is very nice.. And of course there is Hatsune Miku and Reimu Hakurei in it.. 2 for the price of 1...

However, they say that it will be sold next week during the CosFest at Downtown East..

Well, I after I got all my stamps, I was actually ready to roam around the convention free till later on to collect the freebies.. Anyway, went to the Bandai booth to get some pictures of the Gundams there..


This is the best gundam anyone who visited the booth wanted to see and maybe even buy it; the Shin Musha Gundam.. ^^

More gundam pictures..

These are the 2 other BIG SD gundams on show other than the Chohi Gundam..

A random shot of the Kamen Riders.. They are awesome lol.. ^^

Next up would be the toys from TouMart and Devil Robots.. Although they look unique, they are actually quite big.. Some are 1/7 scale while some are 1/5 scale..

This ones are special.. They are called Tofu guys.. You can make your own face on the blank Tofu Guy if you collected him on the 1st day of the convention..

A poster of the famous Dan Dare.. He was one of my old-school heroes.. Yes really old-school..

A shot of one of the Storm Trooper near the stage area..

Storm Trooper and Suzumiya Haruhi... What are the odds???

Now lets move on to the D-Box booth.. Well, what kind of stuff are they showcasing??

Well, the booth is showcasing the vibrating chairs which can simulates the bumps that you can feel in real vehicles when you are on the dirt track etc..

The game looks fun btw.. But too bad I didn't try it since the queue was very long..

Ah yes, one of the few Power Rangers Megazords that was shown in a booth near the Bandai booth.. Sorry if I can't remember the name of that booth though..

Anyway, just by looking at this, I can say that they must have been taking care of this megazord set like crazy to be in great condition.. Why?? Well, this one is actually from the 1st Power Ranger series..

Sadly, mine was totaled long time ago.. Pity.. :(

Some of the other Megazords at the booth..

LEGO Star Wars.. Well, not literally the game itself..

Ah, the TIE fighter.. Classic..

A shot of OLD Solid Snake.. Wonder how old can he still be if the game progresses on...

Ok, now here is main reason why most of the people really come to the TCC..


So from here till the end below are pictures of cosplayers.. Some were great while some were just alright IMO.. The cosplayers were already at the convention by 12pm, 2 hours before the main CosCon (Costume Convention) kick off..

Well, without further ado, enjoy looking at the pictures.. ^^

Now it is the Vocaloid cosplay.. Everyone was like taking out their respective cameras when the Hatsune Miku and the Akaito cosplayer pose.. The great thing is that the Hatsune Miku cosplay is the winner for the Single Category of the Anime Cosplay Competition..

To me, the Hatsune Miku cosplayer looks quite good, even her voice almost sounded like Hatsune Miku herself.. Well, that is just me since I am a fan of Miku.. Orz..

Enjoy the rest of the pics..

Now back to the remaining pictures of the other cosplayers..

I especially like the Jedi cosplayers.. They know their stuff man.. Their moves were almost exact to the ones on movies.. But I LOL'ed when one of the Jedi's lightsaber wasn't bright enough..

I was like..


Who can't resist the Afro Guy from DDR2.. Everyone loved him.. ^^
Those 2 are EPIC team..

That is all for the 2nd day of the Toys & Comic Convention 2008.. Hope you enjoy reading this tl'dr entry..

Well, if you to see more of the pictures, you can visit my flickr page to see them.. Click here to visit the page..

For 2morrow, I will be showing you all the loot I got for the 2nd day of the convention.. For now, I'm going to sleep since school gonna start tomorrow.. :(
