It’s been a long strange trip. What started as a modest gathering of pop culture-savvy folks, has now reached Super Saiyan-proportion as the Singapore Toy, Game & Comic Convention is now in its 10th year.
Held once more at the Marina Bay Sands Convention Hall, the Singapore Toy, Game & Comic Convention will host artists, cosplayers and the likes. Expect a swell of people and activities but here are what you need to check out and what to cop:
1. ACTION CITY FOR TOKIDOKI X BE@RBRICK
Action City returns with a collaboration with BE@RBRICK and tokidoki for the 100% and 400% versions of BE@RBRICK Adios and a pre-ordered set BE@RBRICK 100%s inspired by tokidoki’s four well-known icons: Mermicorno: Sirena, Biscotti, Electric Tiger and Kaiju

2. HELL LOTUS REINCARNATED BY CLOGTWO X MIGHTYJAXX
There’s also The Art of Daruma exhibition with custom artworks on a Daruma Club blank from artists like Devilrobots, Wetworks and Mightyyellow.
It’s a sort of homecoming for Mighty Jaxx, who is celebrating its fifth anniversary with a variant of their first toy, Clogtwo’s Hell Lotus. Called Hell Lotus Reincarnated, this version sees a new robe and a staff, as well as flames burning about his lotus throne and scarred skull.
Other releases from Mighty Jaxx include Cacooca’s Huat the Fuck, a Popek variant, a Brick Baby variant and an Alex Solis’ GID Baby Puft.
3. CALAVERITA CORAZONE BY THE BEAST BROTHERS

Singapore-based sculptor, Daniel Yu shares a booth with Taiwan’s own fufufanny as they present new variants of their work like Jiangshi Acolyte and Linus.
