20 Most Amazing Booths From AsiaPop Comicon 2016! The #EffortMuch APCC2016 Post

AsiaPop Comicon 2016 is probably one of the biggest and highly anticipated conventions held in our country this year alongside with other big and exciting conventions held prior to this event including the ToyConPh 2016 and the HistoryCon Asia 2016. AsiaPop Comicon is undeniably the biggest annual comic and pop culture convention in the country as the event features a powerful line of celebrities (local and international), entertainments guests, comic artists, cosplayers and a whole lot more that surely brings the ultimate fan experience!

It was actually a 3 day event which started from August 26-28 but I was only able to attend the last day (Sunday) since I was in History Con on the 27th (Saturday) but it was really a blast for me. Unlike the other well established conventions here in the Philippines, AsiaPop Comicon is relatively new and in fact, they just started last year and it was a major success. They were able to invite huge Hollywood celebrities last year including Paul Bettany (from the Avengers Age of Ultron), Nathalie Emmanuel (Game of Thrones), Colton Haynes (Arrow), and a whole lot more. This year, they were able to invite Hollywood celebrities but not as grand as last year. It was very unfortunate that two of their major celebrity guests failed to make it to the event including Hayley Atwelll of Agent Carter and  Holland Roden of Teen Wolf which brought a lot of disappointments.

Despite of the cancellations, the recent announcements put fans into thrill. Some of the guests of this year’s AsiaPop Comicon includes Nicholas Hoult (X-Men, Warm Bodies, Skins and Mad Max) , Millie Bobbie Brown (Stranger Things), Joe Dempsie (Game Of Thrones), and Claire Holt (Vampire Diaries and H2O: Just Add Water). On top of these great celebrities, the event also features some exclusive activities and happenings including the intriguing Hall M which is only restricted to 1000 attendees. The Hall M will unveil those never before seen trailers and other Marvel revelations! Too bad I wasn’t able to get a tag that will allow me to enter the Function hall where the exclusive event was held.  20160828_125233tSo while waiting for the next main stage event (i want to get there as early as possible to secure my seat haha) I decided to explore some of the booths. Today, I am listing down some of the most exciting booths from the recently held Asia Pop Comicon 2016. ( I excluded booths that features comics and comics artists because I am goin to put them all in a separate entry). Let’s start shall we?

  1. Aw, I can’t believe I missed this. I have become a fan of Marvel since X-men, but I am more of an Anime fan. Hopefully, the two conventions of Anime and Comicon won’t be on the same day, because I have to split my body if that happens next time.

  3. Okey so i got confused with the pages! Ang dami lang… Hahaha! It must’ve been a fun and really entertaining event. I love the Poketrucks! Intensive display and design.. And the Lego! If my son will ever saw this he’s gonna say WOW! Im not really a fan of comics or cosplays but once in a while i appreciate their colors 🙂

    Metal diecast and Hot toys are my fave booths- all because of Ironman! hehehehe… looks like you had a lot of fun at the event. did you try to do a bit of cosplaying there as well? 😀

    Asia Pop Comic con is one of the conventions that I am crying about, all because hindi ako nakapunta.. #Naiingit ako sayooo hahahaha

    The whole event was a blast and everyday looked worth your time. This would be perfect for my friend who is obsessed with comics and the different characters. Not a big fan but I, time by time, would love to see these colorful and inspiring characters.

  7. Jojo Vito says:

    Oh, I haven’t heard of this. I am a big fan of Marvel too 🙂

    Haven’t been to any of APCC yet but seeing posts about it and photos is just amazing. I’m jealous of you! You were able to go there and see those booths. I can’t say if I have a favorite but I got intrigued by that tagalized TWD! I just hope they would do justice with the dubbing and others. Glad you enjoyed APCC! 😀

  9. You know, I was *THIS* close to going! Kainis ka! Hahaha, kidding aside, I regret not pushing myself to attend APCC this year. I had already bought my ticket in advance online (even though the main reason why I wanted to go was to have a picture with Hayley Atwell – QUEEN), but due to unforseen circumstances, I wasn’t able to fly to Manila. It looks like you had such an amazing time! Haven’t heard of HistoryCon before. What do they do there?

    1. Bluedreamer says:

      buti na lang they announced it before the actual event that Hayley cancelled her appearance dito sa APCC, otherwise, if ever you attended without the notice from them.. you will be greatly disappointed .. pero nandun naman si Nicholas Hault and si Eleven… HistoryCon is merely about history and anything related to History channel.. there was a Car show too in promotion with their Celebrity Car Wars show

  10. Tamshuk says:

    Amazing is the right word you have used here. I will always be biased towards Marvel no matter what. The celebrity line-up is quite impressive too inspite of what you rightly said that its not as grand as last year’s.

  11. Love your chart and totally agree. Comicons are great fun really.

  12. Ferna says:

    I haven’t seen nor atteneded anything like this. And can’t believe I missed a lot. Now, I know and I’m looking forward to attend one

  13. This is great, I wanna be a part of this event someday. I can be with my favorite Marvel Heroes. I hope there will be an event like this in Davao. ejeje

    With five boys in the house, four of which are Marvel fanatics, surely they would have asked me to go here. Everything is a beauty. And surely you had a great time looking out, trying and even admiring those colorful and gigantic displays.
