Star Wars 40th Anniversary Fan Celebration 2017 – Malaysia

The Star Wars 40th Anniversary Fan Celebration 2017 – Malaysia dubbed​ #TheForceis40 event – is happening right now at the Blue & Orange Atrium at Sunway Pyramid. The Orange Atrium is where all the Brands are participating (as in the photos – Hasbro, Hot Wheels, Royal Selangor etc. The Blue Atrium is where the Fan Communities will be having their activities this weekend.

The schedule as stated in the first 2 shots. After last years #GoRogueMY Rogue One movie event, it’s great to see another Star Wars event so soon 🙂

Full album here on Facebook: Star Wars 40th Anniversary Fan Celebration 2017 – MALAYSIA.

My Top 5 most impressive stuff today were:
1) The Lego displays by the LUG of Malaysia​. Inspired the photographer in me 😀

2) #HotWheels Tracks to try!! 

 

3) That NEW Royal Selangor​ #RoyalSelangor #Pewter #MillenniumFalcon Millennium Falcon with retractable landing gear!! OMG a gorgeous RM2,200!

4) That NEW Royal Selangor Pewter #LukeSkywalker lightsaber! Beautiful!!

5) Glad to see PlayStation Asia​ there with the #PS4 with #StarWarsBattleFront demo stations & Lego Star Wars The Force Awakens. 6 Stations to try them but the MOST IMPRESSIVE was the ability to try the #PSVR demo mission on Star Wars Battlefront​! Get in the cockpit of the classic T-65 X-Wing! Fly thru space with Red Squadron, back at your R2 unit, look down at your pilot suit, your boots, your gloves, your X-Wing dash board…. and even WATCH YOURSELF BREATHE!! It was amazing!!

So don’t forget to swing by this gigantic fan event. Almost all the Star Wars fan communities will be present & running their own activities on the weekend. Despite this being a fan event – official recognised (by Lucasfilm Ltd) groups such as The 501st Legion Malaysia Garrison, The Rebel Legion Malaysia Outpost, Fightsaber Malaysia and Star Wars Malaysia Fan Club will be in attendance! “Today will be a day long remembered!”

AK Collectors Festival 2017 – Visit

26 April 2017, Kuala Lumpur:  Yesterday was the start of the first ever Prime 1 Studio mini exhibition in Malaysia (mall event). It is being held at on the busy ground floor of  Avenue K, right in the heart of the golden triangle of shopping, in KL.

There’s a collectibles area with lotsa Hot Toys, SH Figuarts, Cosbabys etc. for sale. Our local Marvel store SuperHeroes United is also there with official licensed #Marvel apparel / accessories for sale, plus a buy 3 – 1 free offer!!

#HasbroMY is also here with the #Nerf blasters for you to try out. There is also a Injustice: God Among Us on the PS4 to duel it out!

The highlight of the event are the premium format prototypes of the up coming Spiderman 2099, Venom & Anti Venom! #Prime1Studios items are brought to us by Shioktoys Collectibles #ShiokToys

 

Other content scheduled to take place are:

1) Cosplay Competition
2) A talk on Toy Sculpting by Blackz GBC
3) A talk on Customized Costumes & Props by Helios-E
For more info on whats happening go to the Avenue K page:http://avenuek.com.my/www/akcf/

It’s really nice to see western pop culture stuff popping up at an event… and it’s most refreshing to see a western pop culture event all by itself!! Some may say that it is small… but hey! We’ve got to start some where!! High traffic venues are not just throwing themselves at organisers… nor is free $$$,$$$ falling from the sky xD haha Kudos to ShiokToys Collectibles & team with Prime 1 Studios, for continuing to be active to promote the passion for pop culture heroes!

Animax Carnival Malaysia 2017

animaxcarnivalHey everyone, This is the Captain and I just wanted to write a short message… in which most of you already know the answer too.

IS THERE ANIMAX CARNIVAL MALAYSIA 2017?

  1. I think most of you have already seen the buzz on Facebook 2 weeks ago about Animax Carnival Malaysia 2017. At least 3 different people have PM the official FB page (https://www.facebook.com/animaxasiatv) and have gotten replies that there will no Animax Carnival this year.  Yes, the people running the page are just moderators / admin blah blah… but still they can’t reply with permission from Animax Asia themselves… so again – I think this is a firm NOT Animax Carnival Malaysia 2017.
  2. Despite having Animax Carnival Malaysia from 2012 – 2016, their announcement always came fairly late (compared to other conventions) which is around end of February, for an event which usually takes place on the last weekend of March. So as time passes… end of Feb… and now – the beginning of March… it is safe to say (together with point 1. ) that there will be no Animax Carnival Malaysia 2017.

Now, whether there will be an Animax Carnival Malaysia 2018 or whether there will never be another one? We really don’t know. However, if we Animax gets in touch with us… or their official spokes person, we will be sure to let you all know by announcing it on our FB page or here on our blog.

For those of you still waiting for an official announcement / statement from Animax regarding the Carnival not happening… you guys might be waiting a long time xD Personally I don’t think they ‘owe’ us any announcement or any explanation on the “why”s of this & that. If I was the boss, I would but then again, I am not.

So everyone, just set your eyes on the next event closes to your location and prepare for that. The list of events in Malaysia just keeps on growing & growing so don’t worry on that part 🙂 The reach of these cosplay events also keep growing! It’s already a staple for (outside the Klang Valley) states Penang, Kuantan, Melaka, Johor Bahru, Kluang, Ipoh, Seremban, Kota Kinabalu, Kuching and as of last year even Miri!! 🙂 So till the next event, have fun everyone!

#AnimaxCarnival #AnimaxCarnivalMalaysia #AnimaxAsia #Inuyasha #InuyashaTheFinalAct #PopCultureFunMY #PopCultureFun

 

NOTE – *The Captain started collaborating with Animax Asia at the Inuyasha: The Final Act event at Berjaya Times Square in 2009. Later, he was hired to run the cosplay competition of the first ever Animax Carnival Malaysia 2012.*


Aikon Idol Fest – Performers Line Up

Here are the official photos of the performers for this inaugural IDOL event!! We still don’t know the order of the line up or what songs they are going to perform but I guess you would have to buy a ticket to check it out? haha

Well if you still haven’t got your tickets don’t forget to get them from the special Comic Fiesta link for promo prices! Here is the link http://bit.ly/2kx8qyG Currently all the Upper Arena & VIP tickets have been sold out… so only the Normal (Lower Arena) tickets are left 🙂 So if you still want to get tickets… it’s now!!

Some advice for all the performers & would be performers:

  1. On becoming a star – it could happen to anyone, so why not you 🙂
  2. But it’s not going to be easy, it’s hard work & perseverance in your craft
  3. And even if you do become a star, it’s still hard work & perseverance in your craft
  4. Haters will always be there regardless if you’re a star or not.
  5. It’s never a bad thing to be courteous, polite & humble… even when you become a star!

“A life lived in fear, is a life half lived” – Baz Luhrmann, Strictly Ballroom.

So keep doing what you love and keep perspective of your priorities in life!

Gong Xi Fa Chai Luncheon with Playstation

16486905_1403189916392356_5229362412697127898_o_resizeSo fortunate to be invited by PlayStation Asia to a special CNY makan makan. PlayStation Asia Regional Head of Product Management, Mr. Arata Naito, was present to answer any questions we had about 2017. It wouldn’t be just your average PlayStation event if there were no announcements or advance demos. Got a chance to try out 3 games there too.

16463554_1403190309725650_899580824618869940_o_resizeFirst is the much anticipated Horizon Zero Dawn huhu which is an open world action RPG. All the hype is high as Horizon Zero Dawn won Best Original Game at the Game Critics Game Critics Awards 2015 & 2016. The country side environment looks like a page out of middle-earth! It’s also hard to not think that when the main character, heroine Aloy, draws a bow as ranged weapon. 3rd-person player games with Bows are just so intriguing to me!! This action RPG is a PlayStation exclusive & will be released 28 Feb 2017. The game is developed by Guerrilla Games who is best know for their Killzone game series. 16664986_1403189963059018_3463836743865071526_o_resize

Second was Nioh, which was a dark, samurai action RPG set in the 1600s Sengoku period fighting lotsa ‘yokai’ / supernatural foes in 3rd person fashon. This game is developed by Team Ninja & published by Koei Tecmo… some legendary gaming names there! Team Ninja is famous for the sexy fighting game Dead or Alive & … the Ninja Gaiden series. When Koei + 3rd person is mentioned I can’t help but think Dynasty Warriors / Samurai Warriors series. Yes it did turn out that way but with more gorgeous graphics, more skilled gameplay and tough ass baddies to beat. “Tough”? It’s “Ninja Gaiden + Tecmo” tough to beat… if u get my drift. 16463658_1403189896392358_1996014426530068550_o_resize

Third was the Singapore developed Stifled for the VR. This thriller brought a new dimension to suspense & fear by only giving you echolocation to navigate your way in the dark surroundings of this VR environment. That’s some pretty cool inovation & story telling there. Feels so much like Daredevil’s radar sense… sonar abilities… just minus that Ninja training by Stick, to kickass! haha Mr. Justin Ng from Gattai Games was present all the way from Singapore to answer anything we had to ask about the production of the game as well as developing a game for the VR. 16463057_1403190079725673_7931893669677757713_o

Nice afternoon. Looking forward to more PlayStation events in 2017!

*This was held in Hilton PJ, parking rate was horrific RM7 per hour – max flat rate RM30. Unless u went there for a dinner function, you’d be paying RM7 per hour or flat RM30. This is the absolute MOST amount I’ve had to pay for any event coverage. And I thought Mandarin Oriental KL flat rate of RM13 was expensive!! -__-


Aikon Idol Fest 2017 – Debut Event

15036233_963836527055017_5917404772161378359_n

It’s already February & what we are looking forward to is the first ever IDOL Festival! No, it’s not Japanese Idol girl groups performing but rather our own home grown talented performers! I think having 5 teams performing can be given the right to be called = “Festival” 😀 haha.

As fellow event organisers, we are excited that a new entity has taken the initiative to create a genre specific platform where these IDOL hopefuls can show case their talent. Yes, some groups do perform at ACG events, that’s correct. However to truly harness & nurture the potential in our local talent, there should be more focus on & into the genre, not to mention the investment of time, money & resources. So right now The Captain is excited for the organisers Aikon Entertainment & is more than happy to support the up coming Aikon Idol Fest – 愛コン

15977801_1022675647837771_7487358923623541507_nGet your tickets soon because the Upper Arena category tickets are already SOLD OUT. You want to see Japanese Idols? Well if this event continues to do well by your support, you all may very well get to see the Japanese idols you want. So in the mean time lets invest our support in Malaysia’s Got IDOL Talent!!

*ALWAYS REMEMBER the group named Sea*A and their origin story*
