Komik Kon Malaysia 2015 - MAEPS Serdang, Selangor, Malaysia


Hey there my fellow Cybertronians and comic freaks,

We've all heard of the world-renowned San Diego and New York Comic Cons. Both comic conventions have become somewhat of a pilgrimage for both comic geeks and toy/ action figure collectors alike.

Taking inspiration from these international events, Komik Kon Malaysia was formed, and on 13th to 15th November 2015, history was made -- Malaysia's first ever Komik Kon was held.

Held in MAEPS Serdang, the event saw thousands thronged to bear witness history-in-the-making.

Komik Kon also played a momentous role in the growth of New Planet Cybertron Blog, as for the first time ever, we were given our very own booth -- which were usually designated to clubs, societies and other establishments -- to showcase our own personal collections.

NEW PLANET CYBERTRON showcased some of the iconic characters from the Marvel Universe -- namely the Marvel Universe/ Marvel Infinite Series lines, Transformers, Spawn, as well other popular 1980s and 90s comic characters.

Their so-called pay-per-view called CLASH OF THE TITANS, presented a good variety of exhibition matches such as hardcore, divas, tag-team, handicap matches and many more.

As the event drew to a close, many have already begun to anticipate the next Komik Kon, which is expected to be bigger, better and features more exciting showcases and exhibits. 

Of course, no comic conventions such as this would be complete without a wide-array of cosplayers showcasing their works-of-arts.

Before we sign off, again I would like to thank everyone - our friends and family that was involved with NEW PLANET CYBERTRON BLOG's booth, as well as everybody, who dropped by to say hi. The booth is a success because of all of you. See all of you again next year at Komik Kon 2016.
