Today, July 5 2009 I went to the Singapore Art Museum, not for the arts but for the Toy Carnival. As expected, It is great and crowded (=_=). The carnival took place at both 1st and 2nd floor, where I saw toys, cosplayers, people, more toys, and more people. They are giving away free candy floss and comic books too :D.

The Toy Sales
Usually I dislike crowded places but I’ll forgive it for this event, because there are lots and lots of toy sales, which is so exciting! Most of them are selling Figma, Revoltech, ACG Figurines, Star Wars and Transformers. ACG / Toy Events are great timing for fans to get the best deal with lower price. I managed to buy 10 Revoltech Figures today!
Figmas are selling at SG$25 & 28 each!
Some Star Wars toy for display
Comics are selling at SG$1 each. It is 1/4 price of usual manga O_o.
Star Wars and Kamen Rider (Masked Rider) Cosplayers
Unlike the usual cosplay event where you get to see anime characters, the cosplayers today are Star Wars, Kamen Rider and Military soldiers. Star Wars Troopers made a great scene today. They are moving as a team of 4-5 persons around the 1st floor. Darth Vader and Obi Wan are there too! And I saw 5 Kamen Riders standing side by side :>.
Storm Troopers are walking in the crowd.
The Indian movie coconut tree moves O_o
Why you hug the tree instead of the girl?
4 Kamen Riders (Shadow Moon is my favourite).
Saw another Kamen Rider :>
My loots @Toy Carnival
All of them are Revoltech Figurines, which include Hot Rod, Star Scream, VF-1S (Skull Leader), VF-1J Max, VF-1F Miria, Asuka (Fraulein), Protect Gear, Kauser II, Camus and Jagi. I’m glad that my Revoltech Macross series and Revoltech DMC series are completed :D. The Arc Gurren Lagann is not from the Toy Carnival, I bought it from other place after I left the event. Review is coming soon :>.
