Experience TOYCON 2023: Celebrating TWENTY YEARS of PLAY

11:53:00 PM


The Philippine TOYCON, from its modest beginnings, has evolved into a highly anticipated annual extravaganza in the Philippine events scene. It has earned the distinction of being the largest pop culture convention in the country. This year, TOYCON PH proudly commemorates its impressive two-decade milestone as a premier destination event, solidifying its position as one of the most enduring pop culture gatherings in the Asian region.

With each passing year, the Philippine TOYCON has experienced exponential growth, establishing itself as a formidable force in the realm of culture and an event that garners immense anticipation. Thousands of enthusiastic con-goers eagerly participate in a weekend filled with delightful amusement, nostalgic moments, and an array of remarkable discoveries.


With this year’s TOYCON happening from July 7-9 at the SMX Convention Center Manila, this year’s edition promises to raise the bar again for pop-culture events as it returns back to form as the collectors’ mecca and an ultimate destination for pop-culture fan engagement. TOYCON this year will feature almost a hundred toy exclusives from partner exhibitors, with top toy brands like Funko, Lego, Bandai, Hot Toys, Pop Mart, JoyToy and many others. We will be featuring the top toy designers in the country, from the region and from the US. World-renowned toy designers like Quiccs, Wetworks, Creon Chknhead, Arman Kendrick and more, add to the hype with their limited edition TOYCON releases


TOYCON also partners with international brand and licensing giant, MINDstyle, to bring you the FanXperience, where con-goers can sample the latest trends in upcoming art toys and purchase Pop Asia exclusives. Fans also get to interact with top creators and designers like Punk Drunkers and Reen Barrera. You also get to check out the Secret Fresh merchandise and exhibits. And one the most anticipated toys of the convention brought in by MINDstyle is the very first ever Philippine Convention exclusive in the form of TOYCON’s brand mascot, TC-02, as an official Funko Pop collectible! Globe is this year’s event co-presenter and they are bringing in the Globe Playboxx Booth where one can unleash their inner child. They also bring the Globe Premium and VIP Passes loaded with awesome toy exclusives, merch and vouchers. Avail of these VIP passes to be the first to own these much sough-after toy exclusives like Creon Chknheads CCW Buck Philippine Colorway, and Punk Drunkers convention exclusive Pops.


Still very much a highlight for the event is the ongoing live-action adaptation of the beloved Robot Romance Trilogy anime known as Voltes V. This Philippine production, known as Voltes V: Legacy with GMA TV, has received rave reviews for its cutting-edge special effects and attention to detail, clearly serving as a love letter from its makers to the source material. The cast of Voltes V Legacy and its show-runner, Director Mark A. Reyes will have a fan interaction on the TOYCON stage. GMA will also bring in other stars to grace the event.

But that’s not all, because from our homegrown talent taking on a much-beloved Japanese franchise, we also get to welcome some special guests from the Japanese Tokusatsu (“live-action special effects”) universe. First up, we have Tetsuo Kurata, aka Robert Akizuki, as he was locally known when he played Masked Rider Black and Black RX. With him of course is Ryosuke Kaizu, who played Red Mask in Hikari Sentai Maskman. All those who grew up with these 90’s heroes will have a blast to see them up close and personal along with their props and vehicles in the Toku Spirits booth. Cosplay also returns to TOYCON in a big way with arguably the most entertaining and most talked-about cosplay competition in the country. The Cosplay KO heightens the excitement for individual cosplayers on Saturday with a P20,000 cash prize for the best anime and the Anime S Cosplay World Stars local qualifiers in the Duo Category and the Cosplay Pop Duo Contest liven up the TOYCON stage on Sunday. Celebrity Cosplay photographer, Jay Tablante, also conducts a Cosplay Photography workshop sponsored by Canon.

Movie fans will celebrate in the immersive cinematic displays as Warner Brothers sets up for Barbie the Movie and the highly anticipated DC superhero movie, Blue Beetle. Paramount Pictures also joins the fray with a booth for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem.

TOYCON also brings to the fore the top local and international creators with not just one but three Creative Zones: the Comics Zone powered by Komiket, with top comic book artists and illustrators, and two Toy Designer Alleys with the best local and international toy designers including Hot Actor, Pucky, Chino Lam, Unbox Industries and more! Enjoy more than 80 toy exclusives to be released by more than 40 toy designers around the world!


And of course, the heart of the event is the TOYCON Collectors Gallery where around 80 toy collector groups will display their collections with exciting panel discussions and competitions for Custom Toys, Toy Photography, Best Display and Awards for the Best Toy Collectors Group sponsored by the Philippine Toy Groups Association. And definitely, the shopping and collectibles hunting is unsurpassed in TOYCON with more toys, comics, collectibles to be found in more than 250 vendor booths!, And even bigger fan experiences than you could possibly imagine await you over this epic weekend!

An absolute epic experience awaits all fans this July 7-9 at the SMX Convention Center as we celebrate 20 years of TOYCON with the TOYCON MINDstyle FanXperince. The only question is: will you be celebrating with us, or will you be missing out on one of the hottest events of 2023? The choice couldn’t be clearer - see you there!

Reminiscing Our Childhood Days with the Return of ToyCon

2:24:00 PM


Every childhood memory comes with toys. No matter what kind of size, shape, and texture, we all play ay least once in our life. We only stop playing not because we grew old, but because of our obligations and necessities.

This year, the yearly gathering and exhibitions of toy collectors, hobbyists, enthusiasts, and manufacturers gathered again after a few years of hiatus due to the Covid19. Dubbed "Back to Basic," they returned to the place where it all started, the SM Megamall Megatrade Hall.

I remember attending my very first ToyCon in 2012. It was at the Megatrade Hall of SM Megamall. Fun, happy, and crowded with lots of cosplayers, toys, and exhibitions. It was like a haven for avid toy collectors and for the kids.

Seeing the abundance of toys, nearly all the characters-superheroes and cartoon characters- that we've grown up with are at ToyCon. If your nirvana is the rarest and most unique toy, you'll definitely find it at the convention.

It may sound weird but seeing these toys brings back happy childhood memories. Though we may not bring back those old broken toys, the best part is that we carry the joy of playing. I remember the line of Michael V in one of his vlogs, "...Matanda na tayo kaya hindi nabtayo naglalaro, pero ang totoo hindi na tayo naglalaro kaya tayo tumatanda." (We're old that's why we stop playing, but the truth is we're not playing anymore that's why we're getting older.)

The pandemic might have affected us but with the opening of ToyCon, we're now back to our childish hearts.

TOYCON PH 2022 Returns for a Grand Homecoming Show

10:17:00 AM


It's the return of the comeback! Yes, the news is right, for all TOYCON fans out there, your most awaited convention and gathering event will be returning to where it all started.

 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.

Our event highlights this year will include:
  • ●The biggest Voltes V Licensing and merchandise exhibit in collaboration with Telesuccess Productions Inc.
  • ●Surprise Celebrity appearances (to be announced soon!)
  • ●Funko Funatics Philippines release of exclusives and celebrity signings
  • ●Top toy studios and designers from the region on exhibit
  • ●TOYCON Creator’s Alley – co-organized by the Bulletpunk Network where the top Filipino toy creators meet the up and coming young upstart creators
  • ●Artist Alley – co-organized by Komiket with some of the Philippines top comic book artist/s assembled for signing and sketching

  • ●Toy Art and Toy Customizing competition
  • ●ToyClick and Cosclick Photography contest
  • ●The TOYCON Cosplay Competition and the World Cosplay Summit
  • ●Collectors and Customizers Panel discussions
  • ●The Pinoy Pop Culture Icon Awards
  • ●And the Biggest collectibles retail floor of more than 250 booths

  • ●Online selling seminars, live auctions and livestreams brought to us by Lazada
  • ●VIP access, NFT workshops and Bulletpunk BitWars art brought to us by Smart Signature

Come home to a very familiar, yet still a whole new playground as the TOYCON PH 2022 happens on July 8 to 10, 2022 at Megatrade Halls, 5/F of the SM Megamall Building B. The event is organized by VLAC Event Management Inc and co-presented by Lazada and Smart Signature.
