MANILA — In these times when contemporary pop culture is rife with superheroes, intergalactic knights and wizards, it's no wonder toys and collectibles have become more than just playthings. Just ask the growing number of adolescents and adults aggressively invading the realm of toy collecting once tagged 'for kids.'---- snipps..----
One of the five organizers of the annual Philippine Toys, Hobbies and Collectibles Convention (ToyCon, www.toycon.blogspot.com), which celebrated its sixth year last June, Azrael Coladilla notes how the perception about toys have transcended the notion that they're just for kids. A collector since he was a kid, Azrael points to the deluge of adult fanatics who grace their yearly event. Families are actually the target market.
This is why, Coladilla points out, there are numerous toy stores mushrooming across Manila. There are even those selling items online, especially since many foreigners go gaga over locally made models unavailable in their countries. For example, the Transformers toyline available in Jollibee kiddie meals was purchased by a foreigner for only P500.

Let's see that price skyrocket 10 or 15 years down the road, especially if that toyline is discontinued by the manufacturer, making it truly a rare and unique find.
Lastikman, a half-human, half-alien superhero, traces his roots to the planet Harraio. Shunned due to his inter-planetary blood, Eskappar (Vhong Navarro), eventually gets thrown to Earth, as his mother thinks that this is the only way to save him. A kind human adopts him, and names him Miguel. As he grows up, he discovers his extraordinary powers, such as the ability to stretch, and the ability to mold himself into any other object. And this is where his adventure begins.
Zaido is an upcoming series of GMA Network that is a sequel to the Japanese tokusatsu series, Uchuu Keiji Shaider. Initially, the network was supposed to do a remake of Shaider, but Toei rejected the script that they submitted. Toei instead, permitted them to write an original series featuring the descendants of the characters in Shaider.. In fact, in the teasers that are currently aired for the show, the name of Toei is depicted in the show's title card which signifies Toei's blessing for the show. This will be a spin-off to the Uchuu Keiji Trilogy which is a part of the Metal Heroes genre in Japanese Tokusatsu. Also, this will be the unofficial fourth installment to the Uchuu Keiji Series, and the unofficial eighteenth installment to the Metal Heroes genre.

Carlo J. Caparas, the man who will save Philippine komiks, has let The
Philippine Daily Inquirer publish his diaryo novela 'To have and To Hold'.
To make room for his half-page komiks, PDI stopped publishing 7 other
This includes Divine Comedy by Steven Pabalinas, Mikrokosmos by Jomike
Tejido, and Love Knots by Elizabeth Chionglo.
The only strips left are Atomo and Weboy, Pugad Baboy, Kiko Machine,
and Garfield (plus two others).
The question that came to my mind is this: How can a man save the
Philippine komiks industry by replacing 7 existing comic strips with one?
