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!

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. :)

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

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

Reminders for the Ozine Fest Anime Figure Special Figure Display

The Ozine Fest Anime Figure Special, the biggest figure centered event ever in the Philippines, is just around the corner and preparations are now in high gear as we try to serve up the best display you’ll ever see this year. Of course, to help us with the preparations, Ozine management has given us an ingress day in advance to avoid the rush and to make sure that everything’s perfect by the start of the event. 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

With the Ozine Fest Anime Figure Special nearing, I’m sure a lot of you are wondering what activities are in store for the con goers this time since this is a very unique event that’s the first of its kind in the country. We’ve just received the official list of events from Ozine management and based from what we’ve gotten, this is certainly one of the most innovative conventions yet.

Team Onii-chan to Co-Present Ozine Fest Anime Figure Special!!!

Team Onii-chan Figure Display Crew has had a long standing and fruitful relationship with Otakuzine and its management ever since its inception and this will only continue to get stronger as time goes by. Perhaps no other proof of this so far will be greater than our super year-ender special event, of which Team Onii-chan will be co-presenting with Ozine for the very first anime figure centered convention in the Philippines. If you’re familiar with Wonder Festival in Japan, then the Ozine Fest Anime Figure Special, which will be held on December 28-29, 2011 at the SM Megamall Megatrade Hall 1, will be something similar to that. Being co-presenters, we will be much more involved with this event more than any of the past ones we’ve attended.

Of course, there will be a figure display, which I might add, is bound to be the biggest and grandest collection of anime figures and toys ever assembled yet. But more than a figure display, there will also be a lot of other activities related to the anime figure collecting fandom that should prove to be interesting for the entire spectrum of otaku in the Philippines. Our team is currently in the process of planning with Ozine management for this huge event. Being the first of its kind in the country, we are very honored and blessed that Ozine has decided to grant us this great opportunity to spread the wonders of Japanese figure collecting to everyone. We’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest happenings here on the blog so just keep checking for regular updates. :)
