Unlike other comicons, APCC Manila 2016 had a lot to offer especially on the entertainment side. Aside from hosting The CAGE (Cosplay Authority Global Challenge), there was a monster truck show and a very amusing wrestling stint by the Philippine Wrestling Revolution. The APCC also offered inflatable activities as well as a skating area.
The E-Sports Festival 2016 area was packed with gamers and spectators. Teams competed in games such as League of Legends, Dota 2, and Overwatch to name a few. Other gaming areas featured Magic The Gathering and Wargaming.Net.
Millie Bobby Brown, who plays Eleven in Stranger Things, was our favorite among the foreign movie/tv celebrities. Millie had a media session as well as a meet and greet for fans during day 2 and 3. See how much Manila loves her.?
Both end corners of SMX featured very talented artists and their artworks. Marvel at their amazing hand creations below.?
Maria Ozawa was spotted during day 2 for a meet and greet and a special Semicon Studios Fan Film Trailer.
Cosplayers everywhere! From young ones to a jedi master.?
The AsiaPop Comicon Manila 2016 also destroyed our wallet with its amazing finds and exclusives for collectors. All the comic book and graphic novel sellers were on sale. The Gaming Library also gave special discounts for their tabletop board games. Comicon regulars like Great Toys Online, Maxi Collector, and Wattatoys to name a few had a very impressive stock display of collectibles.
There was something fun to do in every corner and we couldn?t be any happier. For sure everyone is looking for next year?s AsiaPOP Comicon Manila.
