If you aren’t already psyched for this year’s Singapore Toy, Game and Comic Convention (STGCC) with all that it has to offer on 12-13 September, then maybe this will give you a bit of push. Hot Toys, a Hong Kong-based production house known for creating super detailed collectible merchandise, is joining in the festivities again. They’ll be bringing along the latest range of collectible figures from Star Wars and Marvel. But the most exciting thing has to be the world premiere and pre-order of exclusive 1/6th scale collectible figures from Iron Man and Star Wars. It’s gonna be a collector’s haven this year, especially for those who’re looking to expand their movie and game collectibles as Hot Toys will be bringing along a host of 1/6th scale 2015 Toy Fair Exclusives to the convention.
Another exciting appearance comes after Hot Toys won the rights to product characters from the Star Wars universe at STGCC. The toy manufacturing giant will be releasing a special edition of Luke Skywalker, based on the actor Mark Hamill, disguised as a Stormtrooper (remember that scene in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope when he sneaks into the detention centre to rescue Princess Leia?).
Apart from movie-accurate collectibles, Hot Toys will also bring cyborg Raiden, one of the characters from Metal Gear that will be decked out in striking metallic red and gold armour. Other collectibles include the Iron Man 3 Mark XXIV (Tank), Mark IX and Mark XXVII (Disco) mini collectibles, and Marie Hill collectible figure (based on actress Colbie Smulders).
Make sure you check out the 7m x 8.5m Hulk vs Hulkbuster display while you’re there as well!
The 8th edition of Singapore Toy, Game and Comic Convention (STGCC) takes place on 12th and 13th September. Tickets are priced at $19 (one-day pass) and $28 (two-day pass), and will be available at selected retail outlets and at the event itself. singaporetgcc.com
