If there’s an event that brings out our inner geek that would be AsiaPOP Comicon (APCC). With all the awesome booths, merch, and activities, you’ll have a great time at this pop culture convention. But if you’re on tipid mode and can’t afford to buy meet and greet tickets with Tye Sheridan, Finn Jones, and Osric Chau, don’t worry, friend. Marami pang pwedeng gawin. Here are some of the things you can enjoy at the this year’s APCC:
1. Help Will Byers finish the tunnel map.
The Stranger Things booth at the AsiaPOP Comicon is always extra. If the iconic Joyce Byers Christmas lights got your attention last year, there’s this fun drawing activity for APCC 2018. You can now help her son draw the tunnel map from the second season of the series. Time to help Will Byers!
2. Play video games.
Before buying video games-related merchandise at the event, you might want to visit the Cignal Action Arena and play them first. There’s Tekken, Marvel vs. Capcom, DOTA 2, and many more. May makikita ka pang mga cosplayers while playing. O ‘di ba, video game is life!
3. Turn into your favorite Aggretsuko character.
If you’re not into cosplay but still want something bongga at APCC, the Aggretsuko face paint booth is here to save the day. The artist will happily turn you into your favorite Aggretsuko character. So kawaii.
4. Hoard some comic books.
What’s a comic convention without comics, ‘di ba? The whole venue is filled with booths where you can find an addition to your collection. Just roam around the area and we’re pretty sure you’ll find what you’re looking for.
5. Buy the Jollibee Funko Pop at Filbar’s booth.
The much-awaited Jollibee Funko Pop is finally here, mga besh! Just visit the Filbar’s booth and you can now get your own Jollibee figure for P650. This will be available in select Jollibee stores starting July 30. Pero ano ba naman yung andun ka na, ‘te. Grab the opportunity to buy!
6. Bring home souvenirs.
Aside from comic books, there’s a lot of merch you can bring home as your APCC souvenir. Action figures, T-shirts, toys, posters, and artworks are all around. Be wise and check the whole area to score great deals. Options galore ito!
AsiaPOP Comicon is happening on July 27 to 29, 10am to 8pm at the SMX Convention Center, Pasay.
