June 15 was the first day of ToyCon 2012. It was Retailers Day, were collectors can already start buying their favorite toy collection pieces. Lots of toys ranging from the smallest matchbox car toys to the life size showcase statues. I really felt that I was a kid in a toy store. Different vendors selling comics, toys, memorabilia, hot toys, costumes, clothing and other merchandise of pop culture.
Aside from the selling of goods, there were displays from The Batman Rises movie featuring the one of Batman costume used in the move. Please see the video tour below.
From June 16, Saturday onwards, you will be amazed by the Toy collection from the different clubs in the Toy Collectors Gallery Area next to Hall 3 right of the stage. The clubs were busy setting up their displays when I visited the gallery.
Here are some of the photos of the highlights of ToyCon 2012:
