The summer events continued with the Rampage Day pop-up shop put on by the amazing guys at Vintage & Vinyl Club (VVC). Jon Rampage sent over a crazy amount of toys and there were even some locally done customs, for those who braved the heat to add to their collections.
Animation Comic Game Hong Kong (ACGHK 2017) was the next event on the schedule, a larger more mainstream event with representation from prominent brands like Lego, Hot Toys, Microsoft and Sony. There was a subsection dedicated to art toys which offered a look at some of the new designers and their work as the indie toy scene is exposed to the masses of Hong Kong.
Soft Vinyl Festival (SVF) has quickly become a very important event on the Hong Kong toy collector's calendar. Put on by Andy and his team at Angel Abby there is a crazy assortment of sofubi toys all in one place, spread over two very busy days. There are also many designers / artists in attendance for meet and greets, plus some rare items in the lottery component of the event. We were lucky enough to have a VIP ticket and do well in the draw orders and thus bought a lot of items for the Ko-Re Ko-Re family.
