3rd Toy Carnival Field Report














Felt like a paratrooper landed at a wrong drop-zone. Oh! I wasn't aware that the venue of this year toy carnival was slightly off the main building of S.A.M and the wild goose chase did give me some good workout.

This year carnival is definitely better than the 2nd but the very 1st left me with deepest impression. This year, there are approximately 20 toy stores going on sale so collectors will be pleased and those shopping for children presents this Christmas will also be delighted to be able to strike some good deals especially on Transformers. I happened to be eyeing on an Extended MSIA Zaku II going at S$12/- but man! Some guy managed to grab first. Sigh...

On display, there were some 1/6 scale figurines ranging from G.I Joes, samurai, Marvel to Ip Man. Just before my departure, I came across some dedicated cosplayers distributing phamplets promoting the event so I approached them for phototaking. They are really sporting and it's definitely nice to have them grace the occasion.

PS: The greatest delight of my day is to able to meet up with my old buddy, Mr K. Very happy to see him in high spirits and especially with the companionship of his love.

Some great figures there and the cosplay was well done as well. Not sure we have any cosplayers at a toy convention here, but will let you know.

I have seen some really nice cosplaying at some of the event you attended before. In Singapore, most of the toy events have got cosplayers and I must these cosplayers are very well received in my homeland these days.

I guess them are mainly fighter jet pilots and those of Starwars since you are into both these lines.

the entrance to the place itself looks very toy like with its paint job. haha!
and from i can see from your photos, there are far more completed figures on show rather than model kits

Oh yes pal, there's absolutely more toys rather than model kit in this event. I only some store selling RG Gundam and couple of vintage 1/100 HG Gundam Endless Waltz kits.
