Singapore Toy, Games & Comic Convention returns in August 2009!

I had a blast covering the first ever Singapore Toy & Comic Convention last year. Yesterday, the folks from PI Events held a press conference at The Butter Factory to announce that the Singapore Toy, Games & Comic Convention (STGCC) will be returning this year!

A pop-culture fest of toys, comics, gaming and animation, STGCC 2009 will be held from 14-16 August 2009 at Suntec Halls 401 and 402. It will take up almost double the hall space it took last year and it will be extended to 3 days! Last year's convention was only 2 days.

During the press conference, it was also announced that Blythe, Dollz Inc., Hasbro, LEGO, MINDstyle, Nanospore, Nintendo, Upper Deck, Simply Toys, tokidoki, Ugly Dolls and Wizards of the Coast will be among the key exhibitors. Event highlights this year include the Artist Alley, an artist graffiti wall, autograph signings, convention giveaways, a Cosplay Competition, live art demonstrations, Online Art Auction, Playworks Ultimate PLAY Babes Competition, Singapore Polytechnic Toy Design Competition 2009, Star Wars appearances, stunt shows and costume appearances, and the Walk of Fame featuring internationally renowned artists.

More photos of the press conference in this Flickr photoset here including pics of Iron Man, Rios and Salem from Army of 2, Snake Eyes, a Japanese schoolgirl, Inayusha High Priestess, Go-Go Yubari, the Predator, and a whole bunch of Stormtroopers.
