This is the weekend for all lovers of Pop Culture. Anime, Game, Comic and Toy fan can get to enjoy two full days of fun and shopping at one of Singapore’s biggest and most popular event, Singapore Toy Game and Comic Convention which is now happening at Sands Expo.
Toys and toys
These are toys meant for the big kids. It is very rare for one to find such a full display of figurines at a single place. Our favourite this year is the Shogun Batman which comes with switchable arms.
XM Studio has a long line-up of impressive figurines displayed in the middle of the showfloor. Each item on display is a collectible on it’s own. So while you may not have the money to buy all of them home, you should definitely take as many pictures as you can.
Be sure to also visit Tamashii Nation booth which has a dark room toy display.
Be a Jedi
Fight Saber Singapore is a local club that where you can actually learn how to fight with an actual Light Saber! These Light Sabers used are not your usual fragile collector’s item. They are built for actual Light Saber fight! Visit their booth to find out more.
The indie gaming industry in Singapore while small, is a growing fairly quick in recently year. Singapore Games Guild started by a group of passionate gamers aims to support holistic game developers. If you are a budding indie developer or interested in local indie games this is a booth you must visit. Located right in the middle of the GGXP area besides the free play zone. Try out some of these indies game built by our local talent. You will be surprise by the high quality of some of these games.
There are two stage area to visit. The main stage located within STGCC and the smaller Akiba stage. Don’t let the smaller stage fool you. The amount of energy is insane! You should definitely not miss the performance at the Akiba stage.

We heard that this could be the last STGCC in Singapore. Next year, the same show will be rebranded as Singapore Comic Con which we thought could be a better name for this event. The event is happening now at Sands Expo from 8 to 9 September 2018.
