Meeting Hybrid Work Challenges with VCTNaDS and NinjaOne | Beautiful Life


Remote work is nothing new, but the Philippines saw more of it over the past two years. This happened because of countrywide suspensions of work and business operations—initially for just a couple of months but lasting for nearly a full year. Now, as the country moves to the so-called new normal, remote work appears to be here to stay, either as a standalone work model or as part of the hybrid work setup.

The TOYCON PH 2022 takes centerstage on July 8 up to July 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.

TOYCON started as a gathering of like-minded people, a collaboration of enthusiasts putting together the biggest pop culture event in the country and in South East Asia. It boasts of a cutting-edge show, which has been imitated but never duplicated. 

For TOYCON fans, it’s no secret that Voltes V holds a special place in this convention’s heart. The iconic robot has never missed a spot among the collage of colorful characters since ToyCon started. Voltes V has even become the central symbol of the show, with the huge  statue in 2016 when organizers first moved the convention to SMX in Pasay City.

The fleet of Voltes V ships gracing 2017 merchandise, and TOYCON’s launch of the Tamashii Nations Super Electromagnetic Machine VOLTES V, Bandai Spirits DLX Soul of Chogokin made waves in 2020. 

Voltes V takes center stage again as part of a promise made by event partner, Quiccs.  Creating its trademark in 2019, the TEQ-63 is unmistakably in Voltes V style.  This year, in partnership with TOEI Co. Ltd. Telesuccess, organizers are all set to finally launch it at ToyCon Ph 2022. 

It’s been too long since the community of pop culture fans and collectors have come together since the pandemic. For many, this long drought without any gathering to celebrate common love for all things creative, innovative and collectible just added more excitement in this much-anticipated show. All fans and the loyal community can finally come home. 


- 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

- Online selling seminars, live auctions and livestreams courtesy of  Lazada

- VIP access, NFT workshops and Bulletpunk BitWars art courtesy of Smart Signature

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. This is what ToyCon is all about.  This year, it is a much-awaited homecoming, as we return to the place where it all started.
