Calling all the nerds, geeks, cosplayers and everyone else who’re into toys, games and comics! The annual Singapore Toy, Game and Comic Convention (STGCC) is back and there are so many things to look forward to this year so here’s a gist of what to expect at STGCC 2015!

Exclusive Merchandise

Expect loads of yummy merchandise at STGCC! It’d be a world premiere of the Iron Man Mark III (Stealth Mode Version) Collectible Figure and fans at STGCC will be the first in the world to be able to purchase and bring home this unique figurine. Psst.. it will be available in limited quantity only!

TIP: Go early and bring cash, just in case the NETS machine breaks down.

Walk of Fame

Get your comics and merchandise signed by artists like Jim Cheung and Adam Hughes! Both boasts impressive portfolios like Iron Man, Young Avengers, Uncanny X-Men, Wonder Woman and Catwoman. Take note of the Walk of Fame schedule here!

TIP: Do not try to get the artists to sign any bootleg items, or images printed off the internet! Authentic works by the artists themselves are very much appreciated.

Panels to Attend

Enjoy various panels organised by STGCC! Catch cosplayers Tadaaki “Jacky” Dosai and Stella Chuu at the ‘When East meets West’ panel as they share about how different it is to cosplay in the West. And if you want to know about what’s coming up next for your favourite comic, make sure you chop a spot for the ‘Talking Comics’ panel where comicdom’s biggest names Adam Hughes, Jim Cheung, Adi Granov and CB Cebulski talk about their works.

TIP: During an ongoing panel, do not talk loudly or ask questions when there isn’t a Q&A session. It’s kinda freaky.

Checking out the Cosplayers

How fun would it be to see your favourite characters come to live and maybe take some photos with them too? Professional cosplayers from overseas and tonnes of local cosplayers will be there to show off their stuff, so take this opportunity to fangirl/boy over your idols and ogle at some eye candy. 

TIP: Be respectful to all cosplayers! Everyone is there to have a good time so keep your hands to yourself!
