June 20-22 is the 13th  Philippine Toys, Hobbies and Collectibles Convention at the Megatrade Halls 1-3.

This year, the team centers around the 75 years of the Batman, hence the multitude of Batman merchandise and paraphernalia that are visible right from the entrance.

Entrance fee shot up to Php130 this year, but that didn’t seem to bother the many people who’ve participated just on day 1 – this blogger included. I don’t really collect any thing in particular anymore – 1:6 scale toys are really expensive – but I still wouldn’t have missed it for the world. I saw one item I would have liked to buy, but at Php15,000, I had to settle for an 8-pack SY187 Superman and a Superman shirt. Both marked my first-ever purchase at the ToyCon, so yay!

Not having enough money to buy all the goodies for sale, I resolved to taking pictures of some of the more awesome displays. And here’s what I got:

These next two shots are the only things I can afford that I actually like.

It may have been Bat’s show, but I’m a Superman guy myself. So…

Okay, let’s send some love Batman’s way.

Um, that’s actually my only shot of the guy… How about more Iron-man instead?

I haven’t opened my Man of Steel figure yet, but if this is what it looks like, I’m not so happy with it. Maybe I should have just gotten evil Superman instead. Sad smile

These costumes from the Rurounii Kenshin live action movie have been flown in, I read on the news. They were supposedly the ones used by the actors in the film.

I wish on future toy conventions, the international toy makers – Hasbro, Sidesow, Hot Toys, etc. – will take notice and grace the local scene with exclusives the likes of which are regularly done at other countries. Until then, it’s still a job well done for the organizers, so kudos!

Look what I got today!

I still hate the movie, though, and will probably boycott the sequel.

A new game is debuting this Tuesday, April 16th, on all major gaming platforms. Dubbed as Injustice: Gods Among Us, it’s a unique mix of superheroes from the DC Universe pitted against one another, blurring the lines between heroes and villains, good and bad.

I haven’t paid attention as the game is being developed though I have known for a while that such a title is in the works. I found little interest, until I saw the artwork, and the trailers for the new game. As a fan of Superman, I simply must have it. Via Twitter, I knew that DataBlitz is holding a preorder promotion. I didn’t pay attention at first, thinking I’d just get the standard game when it gets out. I’m glad my curiosity got the better of me and checked the game’s official page as well as their official social media outlets.

Superman: God among Men

Now I’m one of those eagerly anticipating the release date. And what fan would be caught buying only the standard release of the game when there is a Collector’s Edition, with a comic book and a 23-centimeter figurine, among the offerings? I almost missed it, too, and most certainly would have regretted it. Good thing I was able to put in my order before the window time closed.

If you are like me, and couldn’t wait to get a go on the game, try out the iOS game of the same title. It’s highly entertaining and addictive. Graphics are astounding, too!

This is my gift to myself. I finally got around to taking some shots. Still need to find a glass case so I can finally put it on display.

After more than a year since Hot Toys announced them, I finally have my hands on two Christopher Reeve Superman one-sixth figures. They’re awesome!

Now all I need is an airtight glass display. It would be a shame if they get damaged by dust and the elements while on display. Any suggestions?
