Gundam Fiesta 2009

This event is currently held in Singapore from 2 – 14 September. I thought I would be missing out on it since school took up all my free time. Today I had a pretty useless make-up lecture in the afternoon and decided to just go take a peek there when it ended. I didn’t expect to get anything since I’m now a student and not paying taxes to the government, and most of the event-limited stuff would probably be sold out long ago.

Indeed, I left without buying anything. Tons of people were snapping up the limited edition kits and the MG Sinanju. I wish I had some dough.

Warning: very long article – 166 photos ahead! Click on them for larger-sized ones! You know you want to once you go all the way down the article 😉

When I reached the place, Katsumi Kawaguchi was going to leave already. Here he poses with a few lucky kids who don’t know why they’re racing some random Japanese uncle/ossan to get prizes. They probably won’t know they’re standing beside a pro modeller.
