There’s gonna be ton of stuff to take home so be sure to bring a large enough loot bag.
Conventions are definitely the best places to geek out, especially for video game fanatics, and just like any other convention that has happened in the Philippines this year, ESGS is not to be left out in the “Events you should visit if you’re hunting for Geeky stuff” most especially since they got more merchandise retailers joining in.
From wearables, toys, model kits, and even board games, more than 20 merchandise retailers will be making their presence felt this ESGS, and that is still not counting the possibility of hardware manufacturers showcasing and selling their wares as well.
Special promotions will also be made by retailers during the event so as to help you plan out your allocation for waifu..err, loot, we’ll list down some of the “must see” retail promotions for this weekend.
Sales and Promotions
Abubot’s Geek Mystery Bag
The Rizal-based Abubot store greatly recognized the Filipino love for Funko Pop figures with their mystery bag sale promotion which instantly contains one random Funko Pop figure plus moar geek stuff with valuing up to PHP 1,200. It’s a great starter kit if its your first time buying Funko Pop figures and also works for long-time collectors as well if they’re yet to grab some of the newer figures.
The Secret Shop’s Spooktacular Sale
The Secret Shop has long been known as one of the Philippines largest online retail stores of Esports and video game related gear, as part of their celebration for once again being part of ESGS, Secret Shop will be running a Spooktacular Sale promotion which slashes off up to 50% of the regular prices of their available wares which not only include wearables but also video game peripherals.
Gamdias Philippines Free Item Promo
Gaming peripheral brand Gamdias is having a special promo where you can get a free item whenever you purchase any Gamdias products at their booth. You might take home power banks or even thumb drives that are from 16 to 32 GB. Now wouldn’t miss a bonus item on their purchase.
Gundam Philippines’ Gundam Caravan
IT’S A GUNDAM! Wait, this is a gaming event right? Well of course it is, aside from Video Games, Anime is the next biggest pop culture thing in the Philippines and since both cultures tend to mix with each other, it’s no surprise if Gunpla kits find their place at ESGS. Up to 50% in discounts will be offered for select gundam plastic kits which we presume to largely include models from the ongoing Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans series.
