It’s the AsiaPop ComicCon weekend! One of the largest conventions in the country is back for the third year in a row, and APCC promises to bring you the best things in pop culture. Unsure of where to start? Here are five booths you shouldn’t miss.
Need your Eggos fix? What about a stiff drink at Josie’s? Or maybe a milkshake at Pop’s? For anyone who’s a fan of the biggest Netflix original shows, the Netflix area is something you have to visit. Head on to the Upside Down or to prison and get a taste of what it’s like to live the lives of your favorite characters. Just be careful, there’s a death god lurking in the area. 😉
This is your chance to sit on the Iron Throne! The SKY Cable booth has it on display, and for the first time ever, SKY Cable will be holding a Game of Thrones competition in partnership with The CAGE cosplay contest. If you’ve got what it takes, simply register at the booth and who knows? You might just win 1000USD!
Simone Legno returns to APCC for the third year in a row to talk about his iconic brand. From bags to keychains to pouches, there’s a piece of merch to satisfy anyone looking for something to add to their collection. Simone will be part of a Toy Panel on Saturday morning, so make sure to head to the main stage to ask him about his creations.
TV5 / The Walking Dead
This one’s for the thrill seekers and/or fans of The Walking Dead. The TV5/The Walking Dead booth has a fun escape game that will test your chance of survival against zombies. If you’re 18+ years of age, are in good health and love The Walking Dead, register at the TV5 booth to play!
ABS-CBN / Mars Ravelo
Who says Filipino properties can’t have their own merch? The ABS-CBN Mars Ravelo booth has all the iconic superheroes of the not-so-distant past. Let your Komiks flag fly and proudly wear a Darna or Captain Barbel shirt! ABS-CBN’s La Luna Sangre will also be opening APCC Day 2 so head on to the main stage at 10am.
On top of having exciting displays, Saturday and Sunday will be jam-packed with activities at the main stage. From FightSaber performances, to panel interviews with celebrity guests, to the highly-coveted Hall M, APCC 2017 is looking like one for the books! We’d be giving you the highlights this weekend so follow us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook! (If you see us on the APCC floor, say hi!)
