With the coolest east meets west popular culture event, the Singapore Toy, Games & Comic Convention (STGCC) 2016 around the corner in less than 3 weeks’ time, the POPCulture Online team is moving into high gear as we prepare to cover STGCC 2016 as one of its supporting media. Even though we have covered STGCC for many years, there is still always something special to look forward to each year and this year is no different. Here in no particular order is what each team member is looking forward to this year at STGCC 2016:
Elliott: With STGCC being our yearly must go event, i think I’m looking forward to dressing up! Haha but you know I don’t cosplay so it will have to be a bit creative work on my part. Getting autographs and the all important hot toys booth is a must on my list too!
Kenneth: If there is one thing I look forward to each year at STGCC, it has to be the stage segments. From the various panels by special guest, the cosplay competition and the kids trying their hands at cosplay as well, there is always something to look forward to. After all, nothing beats cute kids in costume! Not forgetting the DJ night which sees the while stage area turn into a dance floor, I know where I am camping this year.
Ken: Even though this is the time to save money for HDB, chill and relax at some bar or even look around for a prospective wife, the call has gone out and I will answer! Nothing like spending time with my fellow team members, catching up with friends and maybe even finding a new place to eat at MBS after a day covering STGCC 2016.
Alex: As STGCC 2016 approach us in a few weeks’ time, I couldn’t help but get super excited about it. I’m a super big toys fan, and I can’t wait to see what amazing toys and figurines for Marvel that will grace the event ground this year. As I will say, toys lover will not want to miss this event! See ya guys/gals at STGCC 2016 soon!
Nicholas: It’s that time of year again where I check my account balance three times over just to make sure I have sufficient funds to get all the awesome collectibles from XM Studios! This year I’m hoping to get a good look at the new Japanese styled Batman series (Mockups were shown at last year’s STGCC).
KangYi: Yes! The Singapore Toy, Games, and Comic Convention or what I like to call it the “OMG, that’s *insert comic book artist here* Convention”. As a comic book nerd, I’m stoked at the guest list, This year STGCC brought in Eisner-nominated comic writer Nick Spencer (responsible for the Hail Hydra twist at the end of Captain America #1) and Tom Taylor (who wrote the amazing Batman/Superman and is currently the writer for All-New Wolverine). To say I’m not excited is an understatement…I think I’m gonna faint.
Tessie: Have you even seen the line-up for STGCC this year? With guests like Sakimichan, Haoge, Pugoffka and Ryu☆!!! If a genie were to appear and grant me 3 wishes, I will just ask for the ability to make shadow clones of myself and be all over the convention hall. Oh, and of course, the money to spend on all the merchandise and at the Artist Alley too!
The Singapore Toy, Games & Comic Convention (STGCC) 2016 will happen over the September 10-11 weekend at the Marina Bay Sands Level B2, Halls E & F. For more information, do check out the STGCC 2016 website.
