A Star-Studded Galaxy of Pop Culture Celebrities to Grace TOYCON 2017

The 16th edition of ToyCon takes center stage on June 30 - July 2 at the SMX Convention Center in Manila, with much awaited surprises that goes to infinity and beyond.  

During the recent press conference held at Uptown Mall Bonifacio, the ToyCon organizers were excited to present the celebrities who will grace the occasion.

Asian Comics, Toys & hobbies Collective, Inc. in partnership with Pop Life Entertainment promises another ultimate experience for the Filipino pop-culture fans. This year, the TOYCON POPLIFE FANXPERIENCE 2017 brings in a whole new playground for the digital generation.

Mr. Potato Head returns as a valuable collectible at the ToyCon 2017 on June 30-July 2, 2017 at the SMX Convention Center, Pasay City.

Gone were the days when one would think of toys and collectibles were just for children.  That notion has also grown up, with the likes of the success of DC and Marvel films with the movie-going public. It is not a wonder why the Philippines is among, if not one of the best countries in staging of such conferences.... with all the toys, comic books, hobbies and collectibles under one roof.  But wait... there's more.

Not to be missed are the seven international celebrities flying in to meet and greet their Filipino fans:

Carla Perez – Rita Repulsa in the Power Rangers 90s TV Series

Charlie Bewley – The Vampire Dmitri, from the Twilight movie franchise

Lindsay Mckeon – Tessa the Reaper from the hit TV series, Supernatural

Karen Fukuhara – Katana of the Suicide Squad

Stefan Capicic – Colossus in the Deadpool Movie
