Yes, that means YOU! How to be a part of this exciting new venture? You just have to submit some fairly easy requirements will are detailed below and that’s it.

The purpose of this project is to showcase the love of Filipinos for Japanese culture as expressed by their creative room decorations.

MECHANICS

3. Entries should be submitted as high-resolution images (300 ppi, do not resize if possible) in digital format along with the sender’s name and age to (insert e-mail address). At least four (4) images should be submitted in different angles to give people a better view of the entire room.
4. Participants are not allowed to pass off entries of other people as their own. Discovery of such acts will merit disqualification of the entry from being included in the compilation.
5. Aside from submitting the images of their rooms, participants will also be required to submit their answers to these questions for the short write-up that will accompany the feature of their room:

  • What is your main collection?
  • Why do you like to collect?

  • What is your future plan for your room?
  • What is the most prized piece in your collection and why?

6. All entries should be sent to edrell.dy@gmail.com. Entries can be rejected without notice if they have objectionable content in them.

8. Deadline for submission of entries is on (insert date and time).
9. All entries submitted entitles Otakuzine the rights to use them in future publications and other media should they choose to.

OtaKulture will bring the spotlight to another aspect of otaku culture. Being otaku does not mean being simply a cosplayer or anime enthusiast. So be proud and show off that collection of yours’ and wear your badge as a collecting otaku proudly.

Onii-chan’s Corner: Quality and What Really Matters

This post is made to help collectors with questions regarding the quality of items and to debunk fabricated myths about particular toys and figures. For further reading on this topic, please refer to HS Hobby’s excellent blog posts located here and here.

Your toys and figures? They’re made in China.

We often get asked by new collectors whether or not our figures are made in Japan or if Japan version figures are superior to Asia version figures. This is only natural as all collectors would want to avoid getting something that’s not worth their purchase. To make the long story (or blog post) short, figures are not manufactured in Japan. They’re made in China. But that doesn’t mean that they’re of poor quality or are bootlegs. Here’s why. Continue reading

Reminders for Ingress and Other Important Stuff (ToyCon 2012)

For all Team Onii-chan members, figure lenders and those who will be guarding the display, here are some reminders to take note of. This primarily concerns the ingress and egress schedules, duties and conduct in the display area.

INGRESS

1. Ingress will be on June 15, 2012 from 12 nn to 10 pm at the SM Megatrade Hall Conference Rooms. However, according to ToyCon officials, only 5 members of the team will be allowed to stay within the conference room for the ingress. These members are Onii-chan, Murakami Night, scary.chii, Kai and Ash (final already).

2. Because of this, we will be asking lenders of figures to meet with us outside of the conference room to hand us their figures instead. Once you arrive outside the conference room, please immediately look for anyone of the 5 listed above and sign on our records. This will help us take note of the figures you’ve brought for the display.

3. For those who can bring risers (acrylic preferably), please do bring them to the ingress so we can prepare them inside the cabs immediately.

EVENT PROPER

1. Please take care of your belongings. Team Onii-chan will not be responsible for any losses due to carelessness (such as leaving any expensive items unattended to). Your PSPs, DSLRs and such items are your responsibility. If you lose them because you left them somewhere, do not fault us for it.

2. Do not bring food inside the event hall.

3. Always keep a friendly disposition. Do not incite fights with your fellow members or with the public. There may be times when the crowds are a bit rowdy so we ask for your patience in dealing with them.

4. We only have 3 IDs given out by the ToyCon committee which will be used by the admins. As a result, you will be required to purchase tickets to be able to enter the event area. We are very sorry for this as ToyCon (even in previous years) really just gives out 3 IDs for their exhibitors.

5. If any TV reporters (yes, there will be TV coverage of the display) come to the display and asks questions, please answer them seriously (well not too serious but you get my point) and in a friendly tone. Also, don’t forget to prep up before being interviewed. Be in your most presentable look. *wink*

EGRESS

1. Egress will start at 7:30 pm of June 17. If you absolutely need to leave earlier than that, please inform any of the Team Onii-chan admins (Onii-chan, scary.chii, kettenkrad or Murakami Night) before doing so.

2. You can leave your boxes at the display area but please be mindful that space is quite limited at the display area and ToyCon wants us to be organized and tidy in keeping our things there.

That’s all for the reminders for ToyCon 2012! Follow them to heart and we assure you that we won’t be having problems for the display. This is our first ever ToyCon display and we hope that it will be a successful one for us as well!

– Onii-chan :)

Team Onii-chan Will Be At ToyCon 2012!!! *UPDATED

ToyCon is one of the most attended local conventions and for good reason. It is the biggest gathering of pop culture enthusiasts in the Philippines. Everything from toys, cosplay and even celebrity appearances can be found here. This is why we are so excited to announce that for the first time ever, Team Onii-chan Figure Display Crew will be having an anime figure display at ToyCon 2012 from June 15 to 17, 2012 at the SM Megamall Megatrade Halls 1-3. What makes this display even more special is that we will be displaying our collections with all the other toy groups in the Philippines. Our inclusion is really a humbling opportunity which we are grateful for.

For this display however, we will be doing things a bit differently and will not be opening slots for lending. Nevertheless, we hope that you can all visit our display at ToyCon 2012 and support us in this great event. :)

Ozine Fest 2012

OtaSensei

As you might have heard several posts ago, I’m currently in my 3 month long term break, which means I have as much time as I want to spend at Ozine Fest, the yearly 3 day anime convention which lasted from April 13 to April 15.

Volunteer Your Vocaloid Figures For The VocaFusion Figure Display!!!

After our gigantic Ozine Fest 2012 figure display, you would think that we’d take a break and rest on our laurels, but with so much opportunities in front of us, we simply can’t sit around and let them pass by. So we’re very very happy to announce that Team Onii-chan Figure Display Crew will be having another figure display next month in VocaFusion at the SMX Convention Center Function Room 1 in Pasay City. The said convention will be on May 20, 2012 from 11 am to 8 pm. With the title being Vocafusion, it’s quite obvious that the event will be centered on the Vocaloid franchise. As such, our figure display will be a purely Vocaloid character display. Continue reading

Shifting Schedule (Ozine Fest 2012)

As with all our other events, we shall be opening shifting posts for guarding the figure display area at Ozine Fest 2012 on April 13-15, 2012 at the SM Megatrade Halls 1 and 2. Since this is a 3 day event, there will be a total of 6 shifts with each day having a morning and an afternoon shift. We highly encourage you to be a part of our crew since this is also an excellent way to not only make sure our figures are safe and sound, but also to meet our current Team Onii-chan members and to make new friends :)  Continue reading

TAGCOM 6 Event Report (Yes, We Had a Display There!)

When we have anime figure displays, we’re usually given at least a month to prepare for the event. Why a month? Well, consider that not only do we have to invite lenders and record their figures to be displayed in the event, but we also have to layout the name tags for the figures and have further discussions with the organizers with regards to the floor space we have to work with. I think this is why our latest stint at TAGCOM 6 at Robinson’s Place Manila last March 31 to April 1 has got to be one of our most impressive showings yet. It may not have been as grandiose as our previous displays but given the extremely rushed preparation time we had, we’re quite proud of the showcase we had. Continue reading

Sensei Rocks The House at Otaku Expo 2012!

Another convention has passed and while we’re pooped out, we’re very happy again with the turnout as well as the company of all our friends who guarded the display. I’m supposed to make an event report for Otaku Expo 2012 but since I’m kinda’ lazy right now (hahaha), I’ll first post the epic performance of our resident Sensei, Ash, who didn’t only promote Team Onii-chan and our forum, JPTOYPH.ORG, but also sang his heart out with his rendition of Dragonball Z’s “Cha La Head Cha La.”

So again, to Team Onii-chan, thank you and congratulations to another splendid display. Our success is the success of each and everyone of us. Without all of your help, the group will not be flourishing as much as it has today. Also, thank you to Sensei for the great performance and active promotion of the team. Enjoy the video everyone :)

Shifting Schedule (Otaku Expo 2012)

UPDATE LIST IS HERE

————————————————————————————————————–

In order to properly guard the figures during the event, we shall be implementing shifting schedules to ensure that there will always be people present at the display area. These people will also be held accountable for all responsibilities and duties expected of Team Onii-chan! members while they are on shift. To be included in the crew for a particular shift, simply submit your name and shift schedule as comments below :) Continue reading

“Japanese Toy Collectors Philippines” is Now Open!!!

As we’ve grown over the past year, we realized that the rapid progress our team has had will eventually lead to a bigger community of collectors. Our goal for the team has always been to promote the hobby to the widest range of people and to cultivate a welcoming and accepting community that leads to more friendships. As a result, we’ve decided to finally start our own message board under the name “Japanese Toy Collectors Philippines.

The reason for this choice of naming, in contrary to something like Team Onii-chan Boards or something like that, is that more than being just a community for anime figures, we also want to build a community that welcomes other enthusiasts of Japanese collectibles outside of the usual figures, such as doll collectors and other otaku merchandise.

Being a new online community, we don’t expect our numbers to be as big as other groups, but what we can promise is that ours’ will be a home that makes you feel comfortable and happy to be a collector. We do not promote an elitist and antagonistic attitude that alienates people and a free exchange of ideas is what we welcome in our new home.

Team Onii-chan wants to be more than just a figure display group, but also a catalyst for change in helping to build a better and more constructive haven for all Japanese toy collectors. We hope you join us in fulfilling this vision of ours’ :)

See you at the forums :D

Volunteer Your Figures for the Otaku Expo 2012 Display!!!

Volunteering time! As with our previous figure events, we’re opening up slots for our display to everyone to lend their figures for it. Our displays would not have been as successful as they’ve been without the help of our lenders and this will hold true for all of our displays including our upcoming Otaku Expo 2012 stint this January 21-22, 2011. Since there is no particular series of shows that are highlighted this time, we will be using the standard grouping of scale figures, Nendoroids and articulated figures. To volunteer, just comment below this post so we can register your name as a lender. These are the number of slots for now but we will add more once we’ve confirmed the number of tables given to us. Thanks. Continue reading

Team Onii-chan Figure Display Crew Will Be at Otaku Expo 2012!!!

After our grandest display event last month, you’d think that our team would be resting on its laurels now, but no. This January 21-22, Otakuzine will once again be holding Otaku Expo at the SM Megamall Megatrade Hall 1 and yup, you guessed it, we’re having another display for all of you. If you will remember, we also participated in the 2011 edition of the said event and in my opinion, that was one of the more memorable displays that we had so I’m very optimistic that this will be just as memorable. What to expect? Well, more figures of course. We’ll be showcasing some of the first figures that came out in 2012 so expect some new faces to be seen. For now, we don’t have much details regarding the event itself but on our part, we’ll be opening slots for volunteering of figures soon so stay tuned. What better way to celebrate the new year than with a new convention! We hope to see all of you at our event and hopefully you can once again visit our booth to see our gorgeous display.

The (Delayed) Ozine Fest Anime Figure Special Event Report

Another event has just passed for Team Onii-chan and yet, unlike the previous ones, the Ozine Fest Anime Figure Special display will always hold a special distinction for various reasons. Not only was it the largest collection of figures ever gathered for an event but it was also the first time that Team Onii-chan was front and center in terms of participation for a convention. For such a young group to handle a project of such grand scale was indeed a daunting task but if there was ever a crew that was prepared for it, it was ours. From the planning stages to the ingress and to the event proper itself, everyone helped out in bringing this dream to life. Never have we imagined that a figure-centered convention would ever be promoted this way and we’re very lucky to have played a big part in it. Continue reading

For existing Team Onii-chan members, you might be familiar with most of these already but for the new lenders, please do read the details below. Thanks. Continue reading

The 1st Team Onii-chan Christmas Party!!! (An Event Report)

THE best figure group in the Philippines (and still growing!)

Last December 17, 2011, Team Onii-chan Figure Display Crew had its first ever Christmas party which was held at Yumemiya Japanese Cafe. The party was both a celebration of Team Onii-chan’s various and unparalleled successes over the year and a big thank you to all of our fun-loving members who have all contributed to spreading the joy of figure collecting to the Philippine otaku community. Even if the team has only been around for 7 months, the great turnout for the Christmas party and the friendly and accommodating atmosphere that’s been cultivated into the DNA of the group bodes well for even bigger and better things to come in the future.
