September is the start of numerous big pop culture, anime, and cosplays conventions for the latter part of the year. I am very excited for these conventions because it is here that we see wonderful cosplays, bond with friends, enjoy performances, and buy great merchandise.
Speaking of merchandise, one of the biggest events this month will be full of that. Asia Pop Comicon Manila 2015, which will be held from September 17-20, 2015 at the World Trade Center, will feature all kinds of merchandise, from toys to collectibles to comics to action figures. One of the stores who will bring exclusive and sought-after collectibles in APCC is Filbar’s.
Filbar’s, the country's premier one-stop shop for all pop culture needs, is bringing a wide array of exclusive collectibles to Asia Pop Comicon Manila 2015, matching the event’s stellar guest lineup that includes actors Colton Haynes and Paul Bettany, on September 17-20 at the World Trade Center in Pasay City.
The Hot Toys Booth, powered by Filbar’s or Booth K#19, will delight action figures hobbyists with four Hot Toys 2015 Toy Fair Exclusives—the Iron Man Mark XXIV Tank, Maria Hill, Luke Skywalker (Stormtrooper Disguise Version), and Metal Gear’s Raiden (Inferno Armor Version). Special Edition Hot Toys based on Marvel and Star Wars properties are also available for preorder in limited quantities during the event.
Known for its realistic diecast figures, Hot Toys fittingly found its Philippine distributor, Filbar’s, in showcasing its detailed and high quality products. It previously partnered with Filbar’s for its “Avengers: Age of Ultron” exhibition last May.
Over at Booth K#22, Beast Kingdom’s Floating Iron Man Mark III and Star Wars Egg Attack Action Dark Vader, will be exclusively available for purchase. Other items not-to-be-missed are Filbar’s Science Bros Philippine Exclusive Funko Pops, Iron Man Unmasked and Glow in the Dark Hulk.
Comics by guests David Yardin and David Mack are also available at Booth K#22. Manila-based comics artists Kim Jacinto (All-New, All-Different Marvel’s Angela: Queen of Hel), Heubert Khan Michael (Vampirella), Carlo Pagulayan (Convergence), and Jason Paz (Convergence) will also be signing books on the booth during the event.
