ToyCon is a major platform that highlights the pop culture scene in Bangladesh

ToyCon 2018, one of the leading pop culture conventions in Bangladesh, kicked off yesterday at MIDAS Centre in Dhanmondi.

The roots of the event lie in the inaugural Dhaka Comicon in 2012 – which was the first ever of its kind in Bangladesh. With most of the founding fathers, this is the second iteration of ToyCon in Bangladesh.

A number of enterprises which sell pop culture paraphernalia took part in the event. Action figures, notebooks, statues, among other collectibles were on display and for sale as well.

Some of the biggest collectors and enthusiasts in Bangladesh showcased their finest at the event as well.

The event is sponsored by Daraz.com and co-sponsored by Za ‘N Zee Ice Cream. Other event partners include Dhaka Comicon, Incursion Music, Saadi's Collectibles, Dhaka Museum Of Toys, Toylet, Knock, Roll Out, The Geek Squad -TGS, Radio Dhol, and STAR Cineplex among many others.

Enthusiasts can exchange their collectibles with others at a trader’s table. 

ToyCon is a major platform that highlights the pop culture scene in Bangladesh – in particular the action figure and statue enthusiasts who are represented by the Action Figure Collectors Association of Bangladesh – AFCAB.
