For figure collectors, Collectors Ark will be displaying limited-edition statues, busts, intricate figures, and film prop replicas of legendary characters, and icons from Marvel, DC Comics, Lord of the Rings and many more in a wide range of scales.
A close partner of renowned brands like Prime 1 Studio, Queen Studios and Infinity Studio, it has some impressive artworks under its belt, including lifelike life-size busts of the Joker and Harley Quinn from Infinity Studio.
A huge part of SGCC has always been fostering the community spirit, and this year's iteration will build on previous versions of the Work In Progress (W.I.P) programme to present a comic submission competition, talks by industry professionals, and award-winning creators from over 28 countries.
A new Food Zone has also been added to B2, featuring pop-up stores from LiHO, Gopizza, Blanco Court Beef Noodles, and Cat and the Fiddle.

Alternatively, visitors can opt for any of three ticket bundles, with the first packing in a two-day access pass and an exclusive Gundam RX7-8GP01 First Touch figure for $108.
