STGCC 2017: Diva's Round-up and Biceps Collection from the Media Preview

STGCC, the largest Western pop-culture event of the year in Red Dot Island, will be opening its doors just a few hours away.

At the media preview which was held at Central Perk SG yesterday, ReedPop mentioned that the for its 10th Anniversary, the convention has expanded to 1 more hall, to encompass the new zones like the Good Game Experience (GGXP) and Akiba Zone, which focuses on cosplay and Japanese subculture.

For years, the "games" segment which is mentioned in the STGCC brand name, has been notably absent. With the GGXP area, the organizers making their bid to get the industry back into the fold. Within the area, fans can try their hands on games developed by local and regional publishers, including titles like Pokemon Trading Card Game as well as other card, computer, mobile phone games as well as immersive VR experiences. There will also be a few hardcofe esports tournaments held live there.

The show's floor plan is also heavily segmented into different types, with attendees getting hit with "retail therapy" first before they arrive at the Star Wars "Experience The Force" section, main stage and Artist Alley area. Certain parts of the show are only available to fans depending on the types of tickets they purchase. Hopefully, this will allow fans to maximize their different enjoyment at STGCC, depending on their interests.

On site to meet the invited media at the preview yesterday were several STGCC featured guests. Popular comic book artist Frank Cho had many of the media folks and fellow guests gushing over how his creative works had inspired them. To have him at STGCC may be the one and only chance that some of the local and regional fans will be able to meet him in person.

There were also loud cheers for 3x Eisner Award winner, Sonny Liew. Yes, Red Dot Diva fangirl-screamed as well.

Happy New Year! Geek Onward to 2016!

A quick thank you to followers, media/ PR contacts, readers, fellow nerds, geek bros + seestras, friends, frenemies, the Glam Blog Alliance and my Evil Twin for going along on a wild online/ offline ride with Red Dot Diva in 2015.

It has been a busy but supremely fun year.

Red Dot Diva knows she has not been blogging as much as I want to.

However, taking into consideration a heavier day job workload, and her bout of hospitalization/ convalescence and the awful Indonesian haze which caused havoc to her sinuses, she managed to post as much as she could.

Do check out constantly on her Instagram or Twitter feed or Facebook Page for mini photo logs of events, as these days Red Dot Diva often reports about events "on the go". She also occasionally live tweets about the TV shows or movies she is watching! So, do feel free to join in or comment :D

Red Dot Diva sends warm, *Flexy* and Happy New Year wishes to everyone.

Owner: unknown (contact me if you own this graphic image!)

PS: Red Dot Diva has no apologies for the torrent of Star Wars posts or tweets.

Also, May The Force Be With You!

or LLAP.

So Say We All.

Whichever you prefer. :D

Here's to more FUN Geeky Adventures in 2016!

Royal Selangor Launches Gorgeous Star Wars Collectors' Items at Suntec City

Premiere pewter manufacturer and retailer Royal Selangor, officially launched their new Star Wars product line yesterday at Suntec City, and Red Dot Diva was there to view the collection.

Without a doubt, the craftsmanship of the 16 Star Wars products shown was beautifully detailed, and they all looked gorgeous, especially the armoured characters like Darth Vader and Boba Fett. This was due to the metallic nature and look for pewter, of course.

Red Dot Diva had a little chat with Royal Selangor's Training Executive Vance Khaw about the Star Wars collection, which consisted of iconic characters and emblems from Episode IV, V and VI.

Local Star Wars Fans Swarm Suntec to Celebrate The Force!


Last weekend, Star Wars fans living in Red Dot Island celebrated May the 4th early at Suntec. The two-day event called "Celebrate The Force" was chock(hold)-ful of intergalactic activities like lightsaber fight performances, toy photographer workshops and various displays of art, toy collections and merchandise.

Red Dot Diva popped by the Suntec Atrium right after completing her FCBD run at GnB Comics on 2nd May. Judging by the constant flow of people at the venue, there are more Star Wars fans here on the island than one would expect. Pop-culture lovers, toy collectors, and several families with younglings milled around the area taking in the festivities.

To the right of the main stage was a long table full of personal collections of Star Wars toys, like these:

Mini Darth Vader Meets VW

It is expected of "The Force" to go viral. Especially when its wielded by a mini Darth Vader!

The adorable Volkswagen commercial called "The Force", caught on like wildfire through the social networks, before it was actually aired during Superbowl. Red Dot Diva first caught it from her friends' feed on Facebook last week.

The popularity was probably due to its use of the universally-known Star Wars character and theme song.
