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.

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!

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!
