FEATURE: 14th Philippine Toys, Hobbies and Collectibles Convention

Apparently covering ToyCon is now becoming an annual deal despite posting this particular feature article one month after the event concluded. For 14 years in a row, people have been gathering every June to celebrate the pop culture event that is ToyCon and this year is no exception. To the uninitiated, ToyCon 2015 (or The 14th Philippine Toys, Hobbies and Collectibles Convention) celebrates pop/geek culture through a 3-day event which includes toy displays and exhibits, live bands, cosplay competition, and of course the dealer room. Most collectors probably are looking forward to the dealer room because of the opportunities to further expand their collection, as well as discounts. So if they’re doing this for 14 years straight, how come people never get tired of it? Furthermore, what makes people come back year after year?

Yoshiyuki Tomino has been developing this project since 2007 with early concepts revolving around space elevators. During that time, the story wasn’t meant to be directly connected to any Gundam-related work, though that has changed upon its reveal as a 35th anniversary project. As such, expectations were high coming into the series. Besides the fact that Yoshiyuki Tomino is directly penning the story, the premise is also connected to the Universal Century timeline, the original setting for the initial Gundam works. However, the series became very polarizing that by the time it ended, mentioning it in various outlets would lead to quite the discussion in one way or another. So the question now is, how come GUNDAM Reconguista in G ended to become one of the more disappointing entries in the franchise? Has Yoshiyuki Tomino lost the storytelling prowess that he used in Mobile Suit Gundam which made it the landmark series that it is today? Continue Reading: GUNDAM Reconguista in G

FEATURE: Glimpse of the Outside
