Reminders for Team Onii-chan’s AME Monogatari Figure Display

After more than a month of opening display slots for our AME Monogatari display on November 12, we’ve now closed the lending of figures for the said event. To all those who’ve volunteered to lend their precious figures, thank you and we hope you’ll continue to be a part of our future displays as well. Anyways, I just came back from the AME Monogatari meeting earlier and here’s some important reminders (and revelations) for our Team Onii-chan! members and to those who will hopefully be visiting our grand display at AME Monogatari.

NOTE: AME Monogatari will be held at Hall D of the World Trade Center in Pasay.

1. Ingress will be on the day of the event itself at 8 am. The event will start at 11 am so all those who will be lending figures are asked to arrive before the starting time.

2. The display booth will be a 6 ft by 6 ft area and will have 8 tables. We will be allowed to arrange them as we see fit as long as they do not go beyond the allocated space for us.

3. No exact number of passes have been given yet, but most likely it will be at least 5 with a good possibility that more will be given.

4. Entrance for those attending the ingress will be at the back of Hall D. The front and side entrances won’t be open until the events starts at 11 am.

5. Egress will start at 8 pm or if the organizers allow, a bit earlier than that (around 7:30 pm). If you absolutely need to leave earlier than that, please inform any of the Team Onii-chan! admins before doing so.

6. Much like our epic stint at Collecticon 2011, we will be having another presentation! (Prepare for hijinks and the unexpected) The presentation will be at 2 pm to 2:30 pm. We are inviting all those who will be visiting our display to attend our short presentation on figures as well. Seats for the presentation are limited to 40 people only.

That’s all the reminders you need to know for our AME Monogatari display. Whether you’re a lender, part of the crew or an event goer, we hope you take the time to visit us and see our lineup of figures. If you have any questions or inquiries about what Team Onii-chan! is, our friendly members will be sure to help you with them. We hope to see you at AME Monogatari on November 12 at the World Trade Center. :)

Collecticon 2011 Event Report (No Need For Parental Guidance Here)

Even though we’re looking forward to our next display at AME Monogatari next month, our presence at Collecticon 2011 was no slouch at all means whatsoever. In fact, given the limited space, we still managed to put up a great display with a good mix of old favorites and stunnin new releases. Continue reading

Team Onii-chan! Figure Panel Discussion at Collecticon 2011!!! (Parental Guidance is Allowed)

Pardon us for the lack of updates and posts these past few days. Collecticon 2011 was a very busy and quite exhausting convention which left our hands tied with other stuff, including the blog. However, our latest stint at Collecticon did hopefully help spread the goals and vision of Team Onii-chan! as a whole and this in turn will lead to more active updates and events in the future. The best part of Collecticon 2011? Of course, our one of a kind panel discussion that only the craziest and most animated crew of figure collectors can provide. To keep you up to speed with who’s who speaking, here’s the entire lineup of those who made bellies shake and jaws sore in laughter:

Scale figures – Onii-chan
Nendoroids – kai
Articulated figures – Murakami Night
Ero figures (special mention) – ASH

Again, we would like to thank Hobbiworx and Pinoy Toy Kolektor for giving us the opportunity to take part in Collecticon 2011 and we are definitely most interested in working with them again in the future.

Reminders for Collecticon 2011 Figure Display


We just got back from the Collecticon 2011 exhibitors meeting and here’s some updates to keep in mind, for both current Team Onii-chan! members (particularly those lending their figures) and those planning to go and see our display. Continue reading

Team Onii-chan! Will Be At Collecticon 2011!!!

As part of Team Onii-chan’s vision to conquer the world… I mean, spread the joy of figure collecting to the Philippine otaku and toy communities, we are once again making ourselves present in another highly anticipated event. This time, we’re taking ourselves and our beloved figures to Collecticon 2011 at the Robinson’s Midtown Mall from October 8-9. Whereas previous conventions we joined were focused on the otaku community at large, this time, we’re reaching out to general toy collectors to literally inform and share with them our addictive Japanese figure hobby. Of course, we’ll also be displaying some of the latest and greatest figures to come out of the shed, but please also do attend our “little talk” (which we’re still discussing on how to go about it) about Japanese collectibles (sched to be posted later). Once again, we’re inviting you to our figure display at Collecticon 2011. We hope to see you all there! :)
