It's almost that time of the year again: the summer toy show season! This year is more packed than ever, with staples like the SDCC, TTF (this is its 6th year!), and the return of Japan's venerable Wonderfest (held in Chiba this year), and many more. That's a lot of big shows for July and August!
This year's TTF runs for 4 days, from July 9th-12th. It's being held at a new venue, the 華山創意園區 (Huashan Culture Park). Its a really cool art space in downtown Taipei with spacious grounds and ample space for gallery shows and indoor and outdoor events.
I'll be at the TTF, snapping pics and reporting back here on the goings-on. Come on over and say hi!
This year, One up will have a booth again. I believe my good buddy Hariken (Mad Panda) will be flying over for the event. Spooky Parade's Morry (the mad genius behind the new sofubi hamburger fellow Ban Ban) is also planning to be there, with a Ban Ban show exclusive. There should be other sofubi at the Secret Style (Secret Base x 8 Style) and other booths.
The TTF has a revamped website with tons of info on the scheduled activities.
