Tagged as “Retailer’s Day”, the organizers started day one of the 12th Philippine Toys, Hobbies and Collectibles last Friday with only Megatrade Hall 1 and 2 opened.
Setup of stage, toy gallery and some sponsor booths were still on-going at that time. It was a quiet affair with no activities and programs scheduled as it simply housed the heart and soul of the event – the Toy Bazaars, Comics Market and Collectibles Sale – as some “hardcore” attendees would say.
There were some cosplayers took advantage of the non-crowded event and most of them were from the Western comics which is understandable. The “plain” Alodia Gosiengfiao was also there in day 1 supervising the construction of here booth at Hall 2. She was also at the Ingress.
