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 😉
BB Senshi Sangokuden diorama.
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.

Base wrongly labelled. It should be V2 Gundam 😀
I’m nitpicking but the previous one was Wing Zero so this ought to be labelled Wing Zero Custom
Syd Mead skills
EFSF-style jackets want
Ecopla. Made of recycled plastic
This was on sale
Very tiny beam rifle mold
Very awesome Gundam Throne diorama with crazily-modified Gundam Thrones
I think this was the winner of this year’s BAKUC competition.
Then, a pair of ladies graced the event dressed up in costumes. They were mobbed by tons of ronery gunota armed with DSLRs wherever they went.
Taking a short break while all the otaku snap away – a large-sized model
Some custom made Three Kingdoms/Sangokuden characters
Another large model

Back to the main attraction – the Gundam Image Girls
Many ronery gunota wanted to pilot her Twin Drive System, if you know what I mean
While others dreamed of having this lady as their operator in their own battleship
Nice large-sized 00 Gundam.
Large-sized Gundam, though nowhere as large as the 1/1 scale statue (which got taken down already)
Char’s Zaku II. 3 times faster. Wonder why there’s an SAF decal.
The ronery otaku prepare for low angles.
On the other hand, no clear parts used on the big 00 Gundam.

Tons of these were on sale
There were a few Robot Tamashii toys on sale, like this Knightmare Frame
MG 1/100 Unicorn Gundam Titanium Finish is ugly because of the obvious nub marks
