Two days full of toys, auctions, and entertainment. The annual Collecticon by Hobbiworx happened last September 16-17 at Megatrade Hall 3, SM Megamall where collectors and event goers got to enjoy discounted prices on toys, limited edition comics and exhibits from toy collectors in the country.
Collecticon 2017 is a two-day gathering of hobbyist and collectors where more than fifty booths of toys, gaming and cosplay-related sellers in one hall. Artists were also present to showcase their passion in arts plus the much awaited toy auction where everyone can participate and place their bids.
Aside from the toys which was the highlight of the event, con-goers witnessed a fashion show where kids and teens showcased their runway walk. The fashion show happened during the first day of the event was organized by Ystilo Rizal Productions, one of the partners of the event. Beer-drinking competition also held were ladies and gents joined and tried their chances of winning six bottles of beer courtesy of Heineken.
Celebrity guests were also present during the day one of the event such as Miss Philippines Island Sophia Flores. Performers show off their talents such as singers JB Velasquez and Ian James Martinez and dancers such as Mark Cayadona and Khiro Sparks.
K-POP competitions such as fashion and dance cover happened during the second day. It was jam-packed with different KPOP culture fans and enthusiast. Also happened during the day was the awarding for Collecticon’s Diecast Mod Contest where five winners took home certificate of recognition and the champion won an airbrush from Hobbiworkz Shop.
Unfortunately unlike the usual routine happened during the past years, the cosplay competition was omitted and we only saw less than ten cosplayers during the first day. But what’s more positive about the event is they keep the ticket price affordable, a big peace of mind especially for toy collectors and event goers.
We are looking forward for the next Collection!
