Speed checked out History Con 2017 Manila on its opening day and here are some of the amazing things you’ve been missing out on. It really is bigger, better, and bolder this year, and there’s something for everybody–from vintage cars, toys, and vinyl records, to handmade knives, survival kits, and great food and drinks.

Of course, some of History Channel’s biggest stars from its biggest shows are there: Corey Harrison (Pawn Stars), Jaime Dempsey (Ride N’ Seek), Justin Mott (Photo Face-Off), “Horny” Mike Henry (Counting Cars), Danielle Colby (The Pickers), Ryu Lim (Forged in Fire), and Phoemela Baranda (Celebrity Car Wars).

International celebrities from FYI’s hit shows are also in attendance such as John Weisbarth and Zach Griffin (Tiny House Nation), and Adam Liaw (Destination Flavor).

With them are special guests professional dunker Jordan Kilganon, who will be doing dunking exhibitions and “Mission Impossible” attempts, and legendary professional competitive eater Takeru Kobayashi, who will try to break world records during History Con 2017 Manila.

They are joined by award-winning historian Dr. Ambeth Ocampo and NASA Astronaut and U.S. Navy Captain Barry E. Willmore.
