Onii-chan’s Diary: Otaku Expo 2011 Day 2

The second day of Otaku Expo 2011 was, in many ways, much like day 1, only much more vibrant and injected with an insane amount of hyper-charged craziness and fun. The first day was great enough, but day 2 was definitely a blast. Some of our dedicated and unmatched crew brought more figures to show off, which made the display even better. If there was one thing that stood out, it was the fact that guarding the display was even more fun than it was tiring. Sure, staying in one place and keeping a laser-eyed focus on the display might drain the body, but with such a great group, you wouldn’t even feel it. Anyways, as with the previous post here’s some more pics I took of the display. Some of our members got their own pics (which are obviously much better than mine) which you’ll be able to view soon at our Facebook fan page so look forward to that. Pics are after the break.

If I had to sum up the entire event, it was one convention where size and scope didn’t matter. It may have been a small convention compared to say, Ozine Fest 2011, but it was just as amusing and interesting. Needless to say, Otaku Expo 2011 was a huge success, not only for Team Onii-chan! but for Ozine as well so kudos to them for putting up a great event. I’d also like to thank our hardworking and always exceptional crew and lenders for a job well done. Without their help the display wouldn’t have been a success. This is only a small sign for Team Onii-chan! You can expect bigger and even better things in the future. :)

  2. Very nice figure display. Congratulations Team Onii-chan! Too bad I wasn’t able to attend this event. It would have been nice to see those beautiful figs and meet you guys as well.

  4. Awesome event Team Onii-Chan! I just wish there were more figs on display and for sale! Brought quite a bit of money coz I was expecting I would bring home a fig or two (just starting out in this angle of the collecting craze hehe)

    I actually asked a guy on your table about the Jubei Yagyu swimsuit version hahaha! How I wish I could have one for myself LMAO

    • Thanks! :D We’ll definitely increase the size of our displays if we get a bigger space next time, like the one we had at Ozine Fest 2011. As for figure sales, it depends if our members have a lot of items to sell since those are from our personal collections :)

  5. Hi just wondering why there were lots of bootleg vendors in the event? I went there for the sole purpose of hunting nicely priced figs but was disappointed, the vendors sold nothing but bootlegs. Just an opinion btw, don’t mean anything, keep up the good work!

    • There are a lot of factors involved in the greater presence of bootlegs here such as:

      a) spending power (not a lot of general otaku crowd here can afford originals)
      b) marketing presence of such vendors
      c) awareness between originals and bootlegs

      However, as time goes by, there’s reason to believe that there will be more vendors selling original goods. We’re definitely promoting them and will continue to do so :) Thanks for the support! :D
