The event is also the venue for several exclusive designer toy releases from studios such as Quiccs and DTC Studios.
Several other popular toy studios will also be in attendance, including Creon Chkn, Anatoys, and Arman Kendrick, among many others.
The event will also feature many other custom toy designers and artists where you can not only get your hands on one-of-a-kind toys and art but also support local designers and artists simultaneously.
If your budget is a bit tight, you can drop by ToyCon’s collectors’ gallery organized by the Philippine Toy Groups Association and check out some awesome toy collections.
ToyCon 2022 has partnered with the legendary mecha anime Voltes V to showcase the classic show and the upcoming Philippine live-action series Voltes V: Legacy.
The Voltes V booth will release and sell a limited-edition Voltes V resin statue from Telesuccess Productions and RLUX Customs exclusively at ToyCon 2022, along with many other Voltes V toys and merchandise.
