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.

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.

Onii-chan’s Diary: Otaku Expo 2011 Day 1

Otaku Expo 2011 Day 1 has ended and what a day it was! The figure display turned out great despite some early concerns over space and lighting. I’m proud of how our crew vigilantly guarded the display area while having fun at the same time. Revoltech Woody, as expected, stole the show with his perverted adventures, leading to a lot of interestingly maniacal shots. I wasn’t able to take a pic of Woody’s unfaithful figure polygamy, but most of our members should be uploading those soon. Besides, I don’t think my extremely limited camera gear (phone cam — not worthy) would do those shots justice. I did get some pics earlier as teasers for the better ones to come from our awesome members. More pics after the break. Continue reading

Manika Manila Joins the Otaku Expo 2011 Figure Display!

With the rising of popularity of ball-jointed dolls worldwide, Team Onii-chan! is proud to announce that Manika Manila, the leading organization for BJDs in the Philippines, will be joining us in the Otaku Expo 2011 Figure Display. The greater exposure and growth of BJDs in recent years has led to this awesome tie-up, which we are very excited for. We believe that this joint display will foster better relations with other hobby enthusiasts and make for a better community. Hopefully, this will lead to more collaborations in the future not only with them, but with other fostering and thriving toy organizations as well.
