Yesterday I went to Malaysia' very first International Toy Fair. In fact, I had been looking forward for such event as I am a toy enthusiast myself.
The toy fair was held from 24-25th July 2010 at the Mid Valley Exhibition Centre. I was a bit disappointed that the organizer charge RM3 for entrance fee.
Here are the participating groups for this event. Some came from Brunei and the Philippines.
The arrangement of the booths inside the exhibition centre is not that ideal when the place is crowded.
The 501st Legion Malaysia-Brunei Outpost came out with costumes of the Star Wars characters.
The Transmy showcase their Transformers collection. I shall dedicate a post on this display in my next post due to their extensive Transformers display here.
I watch Macross when I was young but these got to be the newer series of the Macross.
Unfortunately, there is no Gundam display here but there were Gundam for sale. I am sure there were a lot of die-hard Gundam fans on that day.
Overall, I believe this fair is a far cry from other toy fair in this region. There is still a lot of room for improvement but it is definitely a good start to have such fair in Malaysia. I would definitely love to see some classic and vintage toys from the 80s such as MASK, Centurions, Zone Riders, GI Joe, Visionaries, Voltron and etc in the next edition.
