Super limited merchandise items including exclusive MLBB shirts, chest cards and Miya toys were also available for purchase only on convention days, making collectors super excited.

At Cosplay Mania’s Cosplay Fashion Show, cosplay enthusiasts and fans of Mobile Legends came as their favorite MLBB heroes.

The MVP of each round won 899Diamond Skins while the rest received 299Diamond Skins and the limited edition MLBB shirt.
