MAGe Festa 2008

MAGe Festa 2008 was held at Nilai International University College on 26, January 2008. It was the first event we attended for this year and the third event where we display our figures collection. The roster have change a bit this time, there’s me, e-jump, LilKev84, exiled_gundam, aiko-jin and Fat Cat Lim. We over 60 figures on display, some are the same as the ones we displayed during Comic Fiesta and we also have some new ones as well.

Another addition is we have our own booth promoter this time around, thanks to aiko-chan for so willingly helping us ^^, below is a photo of her with our figures booth in the background XD.

Didn’t take a lot of figures photos this time around, concentrate more on cosplayers instead. I forgot to mention that we have a figure photo booth this time, same setting as the one I use for my own indoor figures shoot.

More cosplayers photos this time. There wasn’t much variety, not as much as Comic Fiesta anyway, but this also give us more space to take photos and doesn’t get too crowded.

One of my favourite shot, since there wasn’t that much people at the hall, I get to take my time composing this shot :) .

The event itself is ok, though I feel the PA is too damn loud, and since our booth was right at the front, we can’t hear each other. The hall itself is quite spacious, but it’s also because there wasn’t a lot of visitors to the event, probably due to the out of the way location. The committee did a good job by providing food for the cosplayers and visitor, though the college does have a canteen, at least there’s more choice. I am not sure of the price coz I have my own bento (thanks aiko).

Overall not too bad, and I had a chance to take a whole lot of photos this time around, actually I wasn’t even around the booth much, (sorry guys).

Toys Workz @ ACGC 2008

Went to ACGC 2008, that was held at Berjaya Times Square last weekend, main reason I was there was because I am helping a few cosplayers with their Air Gear photoshoot, which I’ll post later ^^.

Quite surprise when I reach the floor where the event was held, it was fill with game booths, didn’t see anything related to animes or comics at all, and no doujinshi either. The floor was dominated by loads of online games, pc games etc, with Cabal taking the biggest booth, for their launching.

Met up with some cosplayers that I know and some photographers from LYN as well, but I didn’t took much photos on the first day, most of these photos are from the second day.

Lets start of with some kawaii girls in sailor-fuku ^^

Akito and her friend, she was one of the Air Gear cosplayer I was shooting on Sat.

Jiang Shi.

More booth promoters.

Commander Chaos in action. He brought C4 that day ^^.

Mitsuru Kirijo from Persona 3.

No idea what she’s cosplaying as, but cool nunchacks.

Supposedly from a Korean game, cool looking costume.

Kallen from Code Geass.

From Gintama according to my friend.

Aizen vs Byakuya.

Time to get blown away, the guy was cosplaying as The Punisher.

Three Byakuya.

Athrun and Cagalli.

Enma Ai minus the red eyes.

Lolita holding Yuki hostage.

Éclair from Kiddy Grade. I wonder what happen to Kiddy Grade season 2, hmmmm.

The event is more about games than animes or comics, which I am not really interested in. At least I get to meet my cosplayers friends that I don’t get to meet often unless during event, and then there’s the Air Gear shoot, turn out pretty good.

Been going to too many events lately, time to take a break, fortunately the next event that I know of is in May, lots of time for me to rest up and also to shoot my figures that are not getting enough attention from me lately ^^.

All photos taken using my 400D/Rebel XTi with Tamron 17-50 f/2.8, Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro, Canon EF 70-200 f/4 L (belong to my friend) and a 580exII attached. I definitely need faster lens for indoor, thinking of either a EF 50mm f/1.4 or a Ef 85mm f/1.8, both around the same price.

More photos at my Flickr here.

Toys Workz @ C2AGE

I was actually thinking of skipping the report of C2AGE, the recent Anime, Games, Comics and Cosplay event that I went to. Well there really isn’t much to report about the event. It was pretty much lackluster with a small crowd and even smaller number of cosplayers, hence the lack of cosplayers photos. There were some games during the event and also anime screening, which I didn’t go and watch but heard that they charge a fee for watching the screening.

Well even though the event was lackluster, our booth were pretty lively, we were having our otaku style picnic with manga, anime, figures etc. Aiko was also having so much fun posing the Figma Haruhi and Yuki, go to her blog here to see some NSFW photos xD.

Toys Workz will be @ Taylor’s Anime Fest 2008!

Toys Workz @ TAF ’08

We went back to where we started our first figures display booth, last Saturday at Taylor’s Anime Fest 2008. A lot of things has changed since then, the number of ppl in the group has grown and so has the number of figures on display.

This is our booth, with our very own Kanpan Musume, Aiko xD.

Choir singing a song from FMA, not really sure which song though.

Some dancing to start of the event.

Commander Chaos as Lucky Chaos this time around xD.

Some new faces in our display. The rest are pretty much the same as the previous event.

Photogs waiting for the cosplay competition to start.

Cosplay competition finally started after being delay for hours.

Interesting skit by Ichigo and Commander Chaos.

Icecream, hmm I forgot what she was cosplaying as.

E_G trying to be moe xD.

Group shot of the gang.

And finally, the best thing that happen to me that day was getting my hand on Nendoroid Puchi Froggy Mikuru. Well actually E_G got it, but I ask him to sell it to me, he was nice enough to do that xD.

Overall the event was better than C2AGE that was held recently, but still kinda lack luster. The organizing was horrible, with the cosplay competition being delayed for hours. Well still had some fun with the TFM gang as usual, having display at this kinda of event became sort of a gathering for us figures collectors here now xD.

Toys Workz will be @ Comic Fiesta 2008

Toys Workz along with other members of The Figure Mall will be organizing a figure exhibit at the upcoming Comic Fiesta 2008.

Location: Sunway Pyramid Convention Center
Date: 20th & 21st December 2008
Time: 11am till 7pm
Booth: Row D2, Booth 10 – 18 (Floor Plan)

Over 200 figures will be on display on both days, ranging from the Nendoroid and figma range to static scaled figures. Many newly released figures will also be displayed there.

It can be safe to say that this will be the largest display of figures outside Japan that’s contributed purely by collectors & fans of this hobby!

C75 figures preview

Was checking out a few blogs that posted photos of figures reveal during the recent C75 event and a few of them left me drooling for more pics.

First OMG OMG it’s Saber Lily, I am so glad that I decided not to get the figma. It’s still a prototype and no one suppose to take photos of her, but I guess someone manage to sneak a shot XD.
