Ungeek was at the event and we scoured the booths for some cool things that you may have missed out on! Let’s check them out!

4. PENS AND NOTEBOOKS

We’ve got Marvel inspired pens, Star Wars designed pens with those cute little emblems, and even journals too! This way, you can stay classy AND geeky at the same time!
5. HUGE TOYS
Toys and collectibles aren’t new to conventions like this. In fact, it’s already expected, but amidst the sea of Funko Pops and Figmas stand a shop that deals with the more premium side of things. Anotoys Collectibles are pretty new to the scene but their love for the industry cannot be questioned. Instead of joining in on the current state of the toy market, they decided to take things a bit differently and cater to the really hardcore (and relatively rich) crowd with their toy offerings, ranging from figures that not only look real, they better taste real too with the amount of money each figure costs!
APCC2017 was a blast and in between all the celebrity and international guest sightings, we also had fun going around the different booths on display and checking out all the geeky offerings in store for us. Share your APCC hauls with us in the comments section below!
