Collectibles Unlimited is a non-profit organization of hobbyist and toy collectors. On its 3rd year, the group has launched the 3rd Philippine Toys, Hobbies and Collectibles Convention 2004, it happened last June 27, 2004 in SM Megamall, Megatradehall 3.

They got more than 50 Booth Exhibitors, and also various clubs and groups join this annual big event. People already dubbed the event as "Toycon PH", a short term for the Toy Convention, but also a universal term. The Convention Revolution here in the Philippines has started. And many fans and hobbyists are amazed at how the event turned out.

Vic Yap, head organizer of the event said, "This will be the biggest and the most different of all fan conventions in the Philippines". Albert Lee, one of the organizers said, “ The Cosplay event is great, people enjoyed it and I loved it”. Cholo Mallillin, host and part of Collectibles Unlimited said, “People were trying to get in and we saw lots of people occupying the whole venue”.

Jojo Dy of CU said “ we got lots of Customized figure entries, I see that people now enjoy making their own toys”, Lou part of CU noted “This is the biggest convention compare to the last 2 years’ Toycon. Also Azrael Coladilla, who formulated the program, said, “The program was very different from all conventions here in the Philippines. I formulated the program, a taste of Filipino style mixed with Modern Pop Culture Style”

Customized Action Figure contest and some model kit contests are one of the.highlights of the event. Toycon launched the Live Action Figure Cosplay Contest, where the fans will wear the costumes of their respective favorite characters from comic, movie, anime, and videogame characters. Also various games and contest were held on the stage hosted by Level Up and Scholastic, there were games for both kids and adults, Globe lines was the presenter for this cosplay contest. Art contest was one of the new contest line up of Toycon, and there was also a coloring contest for kids. Summit Media Publishing and PSI COM Publishing headed the art and coloring contests.

The event opened by a ribbon cutting of two famous band members of Parokya ni Edgar, and after the opening the event, there was an introductory Video presentation of Toycon, in Star Wars style. The event got hot when they started the Auction, people formed their own crowd infront of the stage and place their bids for that hot toy, and everyone was impressed by that real time auction. Also raffle contests were conducted every hour to all ticket holders, various premium items were donated by some exhibitors for the raffle prizes.

At the middle of the event various performers entertained the tireless toy hunters and fans, Mini Moni Philippines is one of the first performers. Cute little girls dance and sing imitating their favorite Japanese pop girl band, Mini Moni. Then it was followed by Rotshreck, a japanese inspired rock band performing cover songs of Luna Sea and Dire en grey, and so, the Jmusic revolution started there at the Toycon.

Toycon also recognize Indie musicians. Original Filipino artists performed, as well as Indie or Independent groups, Drip was the first to play at the Toycon, an electronica genre, 3 man band, and CLONE a two man band, who played live music while the Cosplay Catwalk was taking place.

Group and Club participants prepared their own presentations like Matrix Philippines, who performed a sword demo fight as seen in the movie Animatrix, Last Flight of the Osiris. TransFormers Philippines don their transforming demo at their booth and showcasing Filipino art concept of Filipino versions of TransFormers. Mecha pinoy displays their Gundam collection and conducted their own table demo, and Star Wars Philippines gave way again for their 2nd year act at the Toycon, featuring the Stormballs, spoof of Storm Troopers dancing while not wearing their body armor.
