Singapore Toy, Games & Comic Convention (STGCC) 2011

Posted by Grey Saturday, August 20, 2011

Hailed as the "Ultimate Pop Culture Experience", Singapore's very own "Comic-Con", Singapore Toy, Games & Comic Convention (STGCC) came in early this year and could prove to be the ideal place to hang out in an otherwise undead city on a sleepy Sunday.

Some official verbiage for the uninformed:

The Singapore Toy, Game & Comic Convention (STGCC) combines the best of pop culture from East and West, uniting the worlds of comics, anime, manga, toys, collectibles, games and movies. STGCC showcase the heartbeat of what's new and cool in the gateway to Southeast Asia, put together in collaboration with ReedPOP – the makers of the New York Comic Con (NYCC), Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2), Star Wars Celebration and the New York Anime Festival!

Unlike last year's outing, the Singapore Toy, Games & Comic Convention (STGCC) was held earlier this year for some reason. Nevertheless, you can still expect pretty much the same fanfare with C.B. Cebulski, the international talent scout for Marvel Comics, Paul Levitz, the former president of DC Comics, as well as up-and-coming writer, Kieron Gillen, among numerous others, at the two-day convention held at the Suntec Convention Centre on 20th and 21st August 2011 .

Here are some of the exclusive items you might want to check out at the event.

That said, you can still check out Hot Toys's impressive booth for some massive display of awesome figures.
