A Few More STGCC 2011 Updates

The Singapore Toy Games and Comic Con (STGCC) is creeping up on the local geekdom. The two-day convention is only 9 weeks away!!

Red Dot Diva knows that fervent cosplayers would be happy to know that details of the cosplayer competition has already been announced. Up for grabs is the first prize of SGD 1,000 cash!!!

Click here for the competition information, but do register before closing date on 24 July 2011.

And for those aspiring artists, C.B. Cebulski (Senior Vice President, Creator and Content Developer from Marvel) will be back in town to do more portfolio reviews! To find out how to submit your portfolios, click to this page here.

Personally, Red Dot Diva is getting a little impatient about more guest announcements. The curiousity is getting harder to bear as the comic convention draws closer! Ugh.

There is a rumour that the design folks from Devilrobots will be back at this year's STGCC, but don't take Red Dot Diva's word for it.

To whet the appetite of comic lovers, Reed Exhibitions announced that Singpost will be launching an exclusive limited edition “Marvel Comics & Spiderman Ultimate 50 MyStamp Collection” featuring Marvel superheroes and Spiderman’s most unique 50 comic covers. If that is not enough superheroes BIFF-WHAM-BAM for you, SingPost will also be reproducing the very first comic book issue of Spiderman for sale during the convention!

In addition, local movie memorabilia company Popcorn Pop will be hosting a special superheroes gallery at STGCC. The gallery will feature a rare, original 1978 Superman print (worth $750 today) to the latest Captain America banners. Original print posters for the superhero movies "Iron Man", "Green Lantern" and "Captain America" will be available at Popcorn Pop's booth as well.

And that's really all the itty-bitty news Red Dot Diva has for STGCC at the moment. She hopes more information will be released SOON!
