Singapore Toy & Comic Convention 2008/ The Visit

Toy & Comic - What a convention packed with anime and manga lovers, not forgetting otakus haha. Amazed by the turnout which can rival that of the PC Show, probably meant that there are lots of anime and manga freaks out there in Singapore. Went with CG and SH to see what's this first ever convention was all about. Lots of figurines and aspiring comic and manga drawers were present together with some game developers, mainly Nintendo and XBox. Witnessed how Guitar Hero was played on Wii and Mario Kart Wii (Ahhh I love that game!). Also saw some pretty interesting cosplays like Trauma Center (check out the pic below) and X-men. How I wished there could have been more displays from Michael Lau or Phuek, those are the sic! vinyl figurines if you want to talk about toys so hopefully next year they will come by haha. Overall, its considered an eye opener I guess.
