Sights and sounds and all the fun in Toycon 2017!

Pop Life FanXperience indeed for everyone at Toycon 2017!


ToyCon 2017 has been one of the biggest gathering of  geeks, otakus and toy collectors that happened last June 30-July 2, 2017 at the SMX Convention Center. The event is open for everyone РKids, kids at heart, hobbyists and superhero fanatics to enjoy the myriad of toys and exclusive collectibles with added surprises and events for everyone to enjoy.

The otaku in me is delighted to see the SMX so jampacked, that the outside lobby itself also offers an eye-catching display of life-sized figures and intricate lego wonderland – a prelude to what’s inside the SMX hall itself.

Surprises awaits inside!

There’s a massive booth for Rod English’ POPaganda, where they had the life-sized obese Mcdonalds. If you’re familiar with the documentary “Supersized Me”, then you’ll remember this mascot (and to be more watchful in going to Mcdonalds or any fast food chains lol!)
