It is time of the year again for Singapore Toy, Games and Comic Convention (STGCC), one of the largest pop culture event in Singapore. Held at the Sands Expo from 8-9 September 2018, this year’s event will be filled with activities ranging from LEGO speed building challenge, to Cosplay Runway and many more! Co-located with STGCC is the Good Game Experience Show dedicated for gamers.
This year, STGCC will be bringing an out-of-this-world LEGO experience to visitors. For Voltron: Defender of the Universe fans, five interactive Voltron-themed lion figurines that can transform into robotic lions will be unveiled at STGCC’s LEGO zone. You can also build your very own LEGO Voltron figures. And if you are the competitive type, join the Speed Building Challenge, where a full-size Voltron model must be assembled with LEGO bricks within a specified time limit.
Meanwhile, Harry Potter fans will be thrilled to know that there will be a LEGO campus of the famous Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry at STGCC. Want to take a piece of the magical world back home? The newly release Harry Potter Hogwart Castle LEGO set with over 6,000 bricks is available for sale at STGCC in limited quantity. Other Harry Potter merchandises will also be available at the show.
For gamers, the Good Game Experience (GGXP) show which is co-located with STGCC is an entire floor just for gamers. The World Electronic Sports Game (WESG) supported by Alisports (Alibaba Group’s sports branch) and local esports initiative Singapore’s Cybersports & Online Gaming Association (SCOGA) will be holding the Singapore qualifier at GGXP this year. See Gaming Athletes battling out in games such as Counter Strike: Global Offensive, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, Dota 2, Starcraft II and Vainglory. Lend your support to your favourite local esports teams at WESG stage arena as the battle to represent Singapore in the finals.
Of course, for the first time this year GameTrader.SG is partnering with STGCC and GGXP to bring a unique game trading experience to gamers. Unlike other shows where you simply selling your games at a low price to game shop, the GameTrader.SG’s event aims to help you sell your game directly to gamers at the show. While we do not buy back your game, you can simply drop off your game at our booth and potentially sell them at a much higher price. Buyers can view the catalogue of games available (more information here) and purchase them from our booth. If we manage to help you sell your game, you will receive your money at the end of the day! It’s that simple.
We are also organising multiple ‘Meet and Trade’ sessions. Come down with your console game and trade on spot with other gamers according to the schedule which is available here.
So remember to bring your PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox and Nintendo switch games to the show! Other game consoles are also welcomed.
As usual, we will be doing the media coverage for the event on the actual day and bring the event to you via our blog. Also do visit our booth at the GGXP show booth GA2! See you on the 8th and 9th of September!
