When ToyCon announced the dates of the con everyone got excited including me. Then ToyCon also announced that this year the con will be held in all three Mega Trade Halls, not sure about everyone, but I went crazy! It has been awhile now since the last time I attended a con held inside all three halls, and having more floor space means having more exhibitors, and having more exhibitors means mooooar toys! So yeah that got me really really excited.
So how was it? It was effffin awesome! Specially the first day. The second day, being that it was the weekend, was really jam-packed! The hall was so crowded that it felt like the air conditioner was off. But it was still fun. And I got lucky with may hauls in both days, and I'm really really happy with what I got! So let's get to it!
Doors opened and everyone rushed to the hall, got my ticket, went inside and then I was taken aback by how huge the area was. I didn't know where to go to first during the first few seconds of me entering, because of all the booths and toys that I was seeing. After taking a quick glance of all the booth in front of me, I saw the booth of one of my favorite exhibitors and a regular of all the cons all year round. Went to check his booth but unfortunately he hasn't finished taking out all his stuff yet, so I told him I'll just check out the other booths first and return once he's done. Got my thumbs up and went on around. And then I saw these jumbo sized classic mechs! Didn't bother to ask for the price because I knew these are treasures (a guy was trying to close the deal on one or all of the mechs, not sure, but I over heard them giving out five digit prices!)!
I was grinning so bad while checking it out, the very kind lady who own's the booth noticed it and teasingly mentioned "Sealed. Made in Japan!". I was like a little kid giggling while nodding my head to what she said. Then I asked for the price. It was priced right, she definitely knew the value of the kit and how much it goes for in Japanese auction sites which was pretty cool. Haggled a bit but didn't really push it because for the price that she was selling it, it was cheap, considering how rare something like this pops up in the Philippines and it's frickin factory sealed! How much did I pay you ask? Not telling, hahaha, but you can check out auction sites, look for the cheapest one if you find any, and it's pretty much priced the same.
The robot on top is actually a four cylinder engine made to look like an evil robot. The kit is battery operated, and looking at the pictures from the box I believe the evil robot acts like a key or an on and off switch to make the car run. Anyways, I'll be posting more detailed pictures of the kit and it's contents once I get to building it.
Having the Satan Celica and the God Celica side by side would be sooooo sick and epic! Can't wait to have one. LOL!
