On the way back from the very first screening of Evangelion 2.0, I happened to run into a Gunpla Exhibition in the Takashimaya building on the way to Orchard MRT station. There was a sale or promotion going on from what I could see. The exhibition section covering Gundams was fairly crowded itself. From what I saw there were many people in that section itself. Forgive my terrible photo taking skills as I still inexperienced with my parent’s crappy digital camera. God damn manual focus. FOCUS damn you FOCUS! Anyway here are some pictures.
The winners from the entries seen here will most likely go through to the finals and even possibly to the Anime Festival Anime 09 Bandai World Gundam Competition coming up soon. Those who wish to enter or want to view the details of competition can find them here.
A silly mistake made by me thinking this was a preliminary round for the Gunpla Competition when in fact it was the BAKUC (Bandai Action Kit Universal Cup) 2009 Competition. There were promotional sales for related mecha model kits and other assorted goods. My bad for the false information. >.<
As you can see, I’ve saved the best one for last. He’s big, but I’ve seen bigger.
Anyway all the entries are worthy and stand a catch to enter the finals of the competition. There were a few outstanding ones I saw and I have a feeling a few of them will reach the finals. Anyhow best of luck to all of them. I’ll be seeing you at the Anime Festival Asia 2009!
Nonetheless all of them were awesome. I wonder if the participants will enter their creation into the Gunpla Competition at the Anime Festival 2009? Anyway, it was worth going down there to take a peak. I should have picked up a few model kits that day as the prices were rock bottom. Oh well, there’s always next year and I’m sure they’ll have a stock clearance or promotional sale soon enough.
