What Happened in Toycon 2014 Day 3 (Star Wars Edition)

Yes it's legit fire. LOL Just kidding! Iron Man Mark 1 Yo!

There are a number of reasons why this is a Star Wars edition of the recent TOYCON 2014 in SM Megamall and not a “What Happened in Toycon 2014 Day 3(period)” is the title for this blogpost. One of which is being i was too distracted by that one massive booth filled with Star Wars Merch that the Jedi Force inside me just couldn’t seem to contain itself and it literally just burst out of me (it’s my first CON so spare me the frustrated comments.) that i forgot to take pictures of other happenings on TOYCON 2014, but nonetheless it was an awesome TOYCON, with the help of the cosplayers, gamers and of course, TOYS! 🙂

So basically, (For those of you like me who was born yesterday, or was born from a galaxy far, far away) TOYCON is a TOY CONvention where all Toy, Anime, Photographers and Cosplay enthusiasts come to gather and showcase their toys, buy/sell some stuff they own like comic books, lightsabers and ironman’s right hand (My friend Andrew Subiela actually got one for himself.), Or just talk and share interests with fellow cosplayers and toy enthusiasts alike.

So of course i took some pictures, and i guess just by the pictures themselves, you’ll know why this is TOYCON 2014: Star Wars Edition. haha! (Photos taken by HTC One X and edited on VSCO Cam App):

When i got home i realized i didn't manage to take a picture with Gypsy Danger. Dammit.

One of the memorable Kaiju in Pacific Rim. :)

I'm sorry. I just had to.

T'was really awesome seeing all these gamers playing DC Universe. Such wow.

I've always wanted this on my room. Maybe someday, If i can actually manage to get a room for myself. Haha

When Annakin looked a little like Lord Voldemort. Whoa.

It's Simple. We Kill The Jedi.

A Close Up of the Fetts.

Looks like another Clone War, no? 'cept Bobba Fett isn't alive...So....

And last but not least? UNO Magazine also happened to be in TOYCON 2014, with their June Cover Girl, Roxee B or A.K.A. Roxanne Barcelo. You guys may remember her as the host of Art Angel way back in 2010? Yes. My friends had to chant “A-aart A-aangel, A-aart A-aangel” just so i can get a five-second flashback of her beauty. Alas time has been good to Ms. Roxee B, not only in physical appearances but on her musical career as well, As she is going to release a new CD soon! So watch out for that. 🙂 Oh! And i also managed to get a picture which basically completes my TOYCON 2014 experience, Props to Mr. Andrew Subiela of course 🙂

Isn't she just lovely? :)

Isn’t she just lovely? 🙂

The Amazing Spiderman: Thoughts on the Web

If you haven’t heard anything about the movie, you can find some info here.

We saw the movie, unfortunately in 2D only, so that means less web-spinning action for us. But it’s safe to say the movie would have been awesome in 3D. A lot of movies being shown in theaters these days try their best to include 3D scenes as much as possible, so the audience can enjoy the best out of the film. The Amazing Spiderman had alot of scenes involving 3D action, much more than the Spiderman Trilogy had (since 3D was still slowly being released to the public at the time of the Spiderman Trilogy) which was a downside for all of us 2D’ers. But nonetheless, the movie had epic scenery, and the fight scenes were cool. Personally, i think Andrew Garfield had much more spunk in being Peter Parker compared to Tobey Maguire.

And the thing i loved most was Stan Lee’s scenes where he always had to be part of every marvel movie. At some point, i kept looking for him in every Marvel movie, and i was fortunate enough to laugh and snicker a bit when i saw him as a School Librarian with Headphones in this movie. 🙂 so it’s really something to look forward to his roles as well. 🙂

Something interesting enough, there was a secret ending here. I thought secret endings only existed in Avengers – Related Marvel movies, but i was proven wrong by this movie. If you have been with Peter Parker from the start like in the comics, you may have an idea who Dr. Conner was talking to. So i guess from the secret ending it’s safe to say that there is a Spiderman part 2. 🙂
