The Hobbies and Collectibles Convention 2017 quick review

I was able to drop by to the Hobbies and Collectibles Convention 2017 last January 14, 2017 while accompanying my boyfriend and his office colleague to one of the service centers in Megamall. Good thing that they’re also geeks at heart and they are easy to talk to when it comes to otaku stuff and toys in general.

Minako Chan! Got this baby from the auction!

They had an auction for different plushies for everyone! all the bids started at 1 peso going up (depends on the plushie) I was able to get a Minako Aino plushie for 90 pesos and a dissected fish plushie (lol!) for 50 pesos, I think it’s a steal! 😀

Pinoy lego! Batang 90’s can relate!

Before we went home, cosplayers are starting to line up for the cosplay competition. One thing I noticed is that most of them playing as their favorite DC and Marvel characters. I saw someone also playing as a character from Final Fantasy that I forgot to take a “stalker shot” lol! 😛

The event was indeed small but we had fun because of the Sailormoon plushies that I scored during the auction, and because of the boys who went with me. They also had fun because of the gunplas that are on sale and the magnificent toy display.

The venue is small for the event I think, and the had limited stalls for food. But the good thing about the event is that despite the limited space, you can still move around. The entrace for the convention is also reasonable for 100 pesos.

Here’s some of the pics from the convention!
