everyone loves toys, especially our favorite Marvel superheroes and Anime characters. That's why I ran with my camera, and visited SM Megamall last June 17 (the last day) of this year's TOY CON celebrating its 11th year of Philippine Toys, Hobbies and Collectibles Convention. The tickets are so affordable for Php100.00 and I'm so excited to took these awesome and rocking action figures, that most of these are hard-to-find pieces. Just take a look of these Batman and Joker Collections which will make your friends drop their jaws coz of enviousness. Gosh, well they are just only worth up to Php10,000 per figure. OMG
well not only actions figures but also known personalities like Manny Pacquiao and Steve Jobs also dominate the convention
I hope you would like my sharings to you! feel free to leave your comments below!
I'm a Iron Man fan.. and Robert Downey Jr., makes my jaw dropped! These pieces are so hot, well just like him. hahaha
Here's some facts about Marvel Action Figures:
A variety of companies have produces Marvel action figures over the years, all the way back to the 1960's The most successful of these lines came from the Toy Biz company, which produces hundreds of different action figures from the late 1980s until 2007. That year, Toy biz re-branded itself Marvel Toys.
However, after securing other film licenses, the newly minted Marvel Toys sold its actual figures line to rival company Hasbro. As of 2009, Hasbro produces all the Marvel action figures.
Toy Biz, relying heavily on its Marvel line of action figures, bought Marvel Entertainment when the comics company was on the verge of bankrupt - just to continue selling its toys.
In 2005, Marvel action figures began packaging each figure with a piece of a larger figure. This became known as the "Build-A-Figure" concept.
The most successful lines of Marvel action figures have always been and continue to be those associated with Spider-Man and the X-Men.
Certain characters that were unpopular were produced and shipped in lower quantities, creating higher demand among collectors. These were called "chase" figures because you had to "chase around for them."
