ACGHK 2010 Part 2

Continued from part 1, more on the general coverage of the recent ACGHK 2010 convention.

Square-Enix Play Arts Kai Snake Version Zero from Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker. Already sold out when I was there

Dissidia Fantasy trading figures

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood trading figures

Resident Evil 5 and Devil May Cry 4 Play Arts action figures

Final Fantasy XIII Play Arts action figures

Square-Enix merchandise of key chains and necklaces. Some of them are not cheap at all, especially the necklaces.

Counter-Strike is still very popular. This one is Counter-Strike Online, which is developed in South Korea and is geared for Asia market.

TOMICA is celebrating its 40th anniversary, and it has an exhibition showing various toy cars since 1970.

Limited gunpla sold by Toys 'R Us in the convention. For a list of them you can refer to this post.

Toys 'R Us store selling gunpla. Most of them are sold at higher prices than the model shops. So unless you are going for one of those limited gunpla the rest of the ordinary ones are not worth getting there.

A closer look at the limited HG 1/144 Gundam Exia R2 metallic colour version.

Limited and regular items from Tamashii Nation are sold in a separate store next to the one that sells gunpla.

One Piece Portraits of Pirates line of figures on display. These ones are of Strong Edition.

A closer look of Luffy Strong Edition

Coca Cola has its own area promoting their Coke which can form ice crystals inside the drink upon opening. They took the same spot there too last year.

SCANDAL autograph event. A few more pictures can be seen in this previous post.

Chibi Maruko-chan photograph area.

Rin holding his massive Seitokai no Ichizon wall scroll

A quick shot of Simon cosplay from the back as they are heading to stage area to listen some guest music performance (from Gurren Lagann)

The "flea market" and doujin area is really crowded with people. You can barely see the stalls until you go right up to them.

Ironman statue

Super Mario Bros Wii for people to try out

More random stores. In addition to wall scrolls, small pictures in forms of cards, door plaques, bookmarks etc are also sold as well.

A fairly large size figure store. Has figures of Kotobukiya, Griffon Enterprises, Yamato, and Square-Enix stuff on sale.

Pest X San, Combat San, and Hoi-hoi San plamo figures at front.

Square Enix Devil May Cry 4 Play Arts action figures.

Final Fantasy summons figures

Kotobukiya figures

The upcoming 1/10 scale Mega Man / Rockman plamo figure, without stickers

A kid trying out Halo: Reach

Halo: Reach Noble Team figures

Mini-games on XBOX 360

Gun controller for FPS games such as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on XBOX 360. Interesting idea. Not sure how well it works, since most people take a while to be able to aim and shoot at the opponents successfully. Maybe they're just not used to it.

Super Mario Bros Wii on stage.

Life statue of Darth Vader and a Stormtrooper.

A large Chopper figure from One Piece

Arale Norimaki, the main character from Dr Slump

Medicom Toy, well known for the Kubrick (including Bearbricks), and RAH figures

One Piece shop - selling One Piece related merchandise as well as the wanted posters.

Gundam-related stuff next! Hope you like the coverage so far!


  1. Thats a lot of good playarts figures there, but There another Halo sequel?

  2. For a moment I was wondering why does the rockman not have eyes :S

  3. @ GunStray:
    The new Halo game is actually a prequel afaik. It has been announced a year ago, and set to release sometime this September I think.

    @ AstrauP03 (Zhe):
    Rockman does look a bit odd as a straight build without any touch-ups or even stickers on ^^;

  4. Halo: Reach is a prequal to the famous Halo series and Master Chief. Numerous mentions of the incidents of Reach during the Halo series is what they are referring to.

    Square has a large booth at this con... must be trying to sell their merchandise...

    Anything interesting from the convention that is spectacular compared to the rest?

  5. Wow this event seems bigger than any of the ones we have in Singapore! So many different genres and makers....damn i'll be spoilt if I went there...

  6. The snake and dissidea figures, want xD. First time I heard about Coke's new tech, that sounds pretty awesome ^^. Definitely give them an edge over Pepsi. The polar bear they have on display needs to be fatter lol.

  7. @ Robostrike:
    Square-Enix's area isn't too big compared to other large shops or companies, but is very open and accessible for people to look around or even buy things.

    Anything spectacular from the rest? Hm... Hard to say, but overall the stalls and shops earned a good profit in this year's convention. Perhaps even better than previous years. SCANDAL visited again, and they held a concert in Kowloon on 1st August, whose tickets can be bought in the convention.

    @ chubbybots:
    I have not been to anime-related conventions outside Hong Kong, but I did hear the ones outside are quite different to ACGHK. If you fall for the stall's items easily then you will indeed be in trouble instantly (if you were there) ^^;

    @ AS:
    The Dissidia trading figures got me interested as well, but I guess I'll skip them... For now. The coke's tech has been announced for at least a year, but it doesn't seem to be very well known outside. lol at your comment about the polar bear ^^;;

  8. Nice pictures buddy!

    Hey, did you happen to see what that poster is behind Vader and the Storm Trooper. It says "Transformers Hunt for..." but I can't see the rest...is that a new game coming out?

  9. @ Apt-1B:
    The poster should read "Transformers Hunt for the Decepticons", which is a new toy line started very recently (from this month I think). Hope this helps!
