This year's Hong Kong Comics Festival, to be held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre from July 31 to August 4, will feature a wide range of comics as well as action figures, online game competitions, toys, replica weapons, plus a host of Canto-pop star figures. According to organiser Tung Tak Enterprise, a publishing company, action figures are the most sought-after items, including those that look like Andy Lau Tak-wah in the movie Love On A Diet and Louise Koo Tin-lok and Wong Hei in the TV series Burning Flame II. Local designers have come up with fun figures such as the Master and Lochoi dolls. Toby Leung, one of the designers, said he saw the dolls as another McMug. Visitors will also have a chance to test their skills in online games such as Warcraft III, FIFA 2002 and Rainbow 6. Canto-pop singers Alex Fong Lik-sun, Daniel Chan Hiu-tong and Rain Lee Choi-wah will be there to cheer the competitors on. For more information, call 2523 0882.
