ToyCon is already this week and I cannot be anymore excited! ^_^ Last year, the Hubby and I attended Day 2 and it was perfect timing for our 9th anniversary as a couple! If you want to read about our experience, click >>HERE<<

This year, ToyCon is happening on June 30 to July 2!


It used to be when TOYCON was just all about toys and collecting geeky stuff, and being under one roof with pop-culture fanboys, cosplayers, gamers and comic book nerds. But this year, TOYCON heads off for uncharted waters and borrowing from a certain famous space TV show, “Boldly goes to where no CON has gone before.”

The Philippine TOYCON, now on its 16th year, began an exciting partnership with Pop Life
Entertainment, last year to create the ultimate Fan experience for the Filipino pop-culture fans.
ToyCon Pop Life FanXperience 2016 was the biggest celebration of all things associated with pop-culture such as toys, games, movies, cosplay, anime and collectibles.

FanXperience made ToyCon the staging-ground of the "ultimate fan experiencefor the local fan base who got to get up close and personal for the first time with international celebrities like Kristian Nairn from Game of Thrones and Dean Cain from the Adventures of Superman.


This year the TOYCON POP LIFE FANXPERIENCE 2017 takes it up a notch higher and promises bigger entertainment and a whole new playground for the digital generation.
