Out of all the anime figure displays that we’ve been a part of, Ozine Fest will always be special for us since it was the first event that Team Onii-chan participated in, as well as one of the largest and most diverse ones. Because of this, we always look forward to the month of April since Otakuzine management always holds their flagship 3-day event on this month. With April fast approaching, they’ve finally announced that Ozine Fest 2012 will be held on April 13-15, 2012 at the SM Megamall Megatrade Halls (how many halls we don’t know, but most likely three). So why are we making this post then? We’re having a figure display there of course! And it’s not just any display. If you think that our Ozine Fest Anime Figure Special display was huge, this one promises to be the mother of all displays. It’s been quite a while since we’ve had our last event and in that time, quite a lot of new figures have been released so expect a lot of new entries in our display alongside some old favorites. Because it’s such a big and important event for us, we’ve decided to open slots for the lending of figures one month in advance to help us prepare for it. Continue reading
Another event has just passed for Team Onii-chan and yet, unlike the previous ones, the Ozine Fest Anime Figure Special display will always hold a special distinction for various reasons. Not only was it the largest collection of figures ever gathered for an event but it was also the first time that Team Onii-chan was front and center in terms of participation for a convention. For such a young group to handle a project of such grand scale was indeed a daunting task but if there was ever a crew that was prepared for it, it was ours. From the planning stages to the ingress and to the event proper itself, everyone helped out in bringing this dream to life. Never have we imagined that a figure-centered convention would ever be promoted this way and we’re very lucky to have played a big part in it. Continue reading
Sorry for the lack of posts recently as we’ve been quite busy with the just concluded Ozine Fest Anime Figure Special (which I’ll be doing a post on soon), but we’re now back to give you updates on some of the most eye-catching figures to come out from Japan. Griffon Enterprises has been known much for its steady releases of “Touhou Project” figures and while not all of them are considered to be top-tier quality, there are some like this POP Ver. of main character Reimu Hakurei that grabs notice.

The Ozine Fest Anime Figure Special, the biggest figure centered event ever in the Philippines, is just around the corner and preparations are now in high gear as we try to serve up the best display you’ll ever see this year. Of course, to help us with the preparations, Ozine management has given us an ingress day in advance to avoid the rush and to make sure that everything’s perfect by the start of the event. For existing Team Onii-chan members, you might be familiar with most of these already but for the new lenders, please do read the details below. Thanks. Continue reading
With the Ozine Fest Anime Figure Special nearing, I’m sure a lot of you are wondering what activities are in store for the con goers this time since this is a very unique event that’s the first of its kind in the country. We’ve just received the official list of events from Ozine management and based from what we’ve gotten, this is certainly one of the most innovative conventions yet. Without further ado, here are the things that you should look forward to this coming December 28 and 29 at the SM Megamall Megatrade Hall 1. Continue reading
In one month, Team Onii-chan! will be having its greatest event ever (I know I said our AME Monogatari one was but this one’s even bigger) and as always, we will be having another display for all attendees to see and appreciate. However, unlike before where the display was segmented by toy line (scale figures, Nendoroids, articulated figures), for the Ozine Fest Anime Figure Special, we will be grouping figures according to popular series. This doesn’t mean that figures whose characters do not fall under the series mentioned below will be left out. In fact, we will be providing a separate area for those figures as well. The rationale behind grouping figures by series is that it helps people who are more familiar with the shows look at the figures since they’re all in a shared space, rather than having them scan the display by toy line. We believe that this set-up would cater best to the general public and not just toy collectors, which is really what the thrust of this convention is; to spread the joy of figure collecting not just to existing collectors, but to everyone.
Here are the different series and the slots for lending. As always, to lend your figure, just comment below this post with your name, contact details and the figure which you’ll be lending. Note that since lending will be on a per series basis, you have to state the toy line that the figure is from (e.g. Nendoroid) Continue reading
Team Onii-chan Figure Display Crew has had a long standing and fruitful relationship with Otakuzine and its management ever since its inception and this will only continue to get stronger as time goes by. Perhaps no other proof of this so far will be greater than our super year-ender special event, of which Team Onii-chan will be co-presenting with Ozine for the very first anime figure centered convention in the Philippines. If you’re familiar with Wonder Festival in Japan, then the Ozine Fest Anime Figure Special, which will be held on December 28-29, 2011 at the SM Megamall Megatrade Hall 1, will be something similar to that. Being co-presenters, we will be much more involved with this event more than any of the past ones we’ve attended.
Of course, there will be a figure display, which I might add, is bound to be the biggest and grandest collection of anime figures and toys ever assembled yet. But more than a figure display, there will also be a lot of other activities related to the anime figure collecting fandom that should prove to be interesting for the entire spectrum of otaku in the Philippines. Our team is currently in the process of planning with Ozine management for this huge event. Being the first of its kind in the country, we are very honored and blessed that Ozine has decided to grant us this great opportunity to spread the wonders of Japanese figure collecting to everyone. We’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest happenings here on the blog so just keep checking for regular updates. :)
